Earlier today the official Disney Infinity Twitter account hinted (yet confirming at the same time) that Merida will indeed be a character in Disney Infinity 2.0. Although we know Merida will be included in the game, it hasn’t been confirmed if she will be a singular Toy Box figure or if there will be a Brave playset as well – although from what we’re hearing from the D23 Maleficent pre-screening and Disney Infinity event, it appears that she will be a Toy Box figure only.
Back on April 30th, during the Disney Infinity 2.0 Press Event, we noticed a few hidden characters in the background of the trailer that was shown to the crowd. While all of the characters were centered around the Marvel franchise at the press event, it was a nice surprise to spot Merida (as well as Maleficent and Stitch), as we’ve been chatting about a Brave playset since the first version of Disney Infinity was released.
Tonight during a special sold-out D23 event, attendees were treated to a special presentation of Disney Infinity on top of a pre-release screening of Disney’s Maleficent. During the Disney Infinity portion of the event, guests were shown images of Merida and Maleficent in the toy box as well as given a limited edition (of 500) print of the Maleficent figure shown from concept to final character mold.
