Mickey Mouse is one of, if not the most iconic cartoon character in the world. The emphasis on teen comedies and 3D animation in today's world of children's programming has kept Mickey in a sort of limbo for the last couple of years. Epic Mickey is not only a love letter to the character's – and Disney's as a whole – roots, but also a re-imagination for the video game world. And who should be the one to lead this ambitious charge? None other than legendary game designer Warren Spector and his Junction Point studio.

A sorcerer named Yen Sid – he of The Sorcerer's Apprentice fame – creates a wonderful cartoon world where Disney's retired and forgotten characters and creations can live. The first inhabitant of this Cartoon Wasteland is Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney's very first cartoon star who was shoved out of the spotlight when Mickey Mouse was created. Over the years, Oswald makes the Cartoon Wasteland a safe, comfortable haven for his fellow 'retirees,' all the while becoming evermore jealous of Mickey's popularity.

Mickey stumbles across the map that leads to the magical Cartoon Wasteland and makes a mistake that devastates Oswald's world. The actions result in Mickey being pulled into the Wasteland, to see what he has done and to do something about it. Complete with a magical paintbrush that can create – and erase – many platforms and environments at will, Epic Mickey becomes a platformer like other.
