In the first iteration of Disney Infinity, there were quite a number of Pixar characters available for gamers to choose from, including from films such as The Incredibles, Monsters University, and Cars. When Disney Infinity 2.0 was said to feature Marvel super heroes, there was a question as to whether Disney and Pixar characters would appear. If you paid close attention to the teaser for the new game, you may have spotted Merida along with a few other Disney characters, albeit briefly. Now we have confirmation that Merida will, indeed, appear!
Brave was the first Pixar film to place a female character in the spotlight, and the film’s popularity has made Merida a favorite of many. Perhaps a reason for why she did not appear in the first Disney Infinity was the fact that the Brave video game was only about six months old when the new gaming platform from Disney Interactive was announced to the public. Also, there was no shortage of characters for the development team at Avalanche Software to choose from to feature in the game.
Just a few minutes ago, the official Disney Infinity Twitter account posted an update, acknowledging Merida’s presence in the upcoming game. Stating that Disney Infinity is about to change your fate, the attached image reads, “Bring On The Brave”:

The tease is undoubtedly linked to the special D23 member event being held in San Francisco tonight (tickets are sold out). Another character that is being teased in the event info is Maleficent, whose live-action film is being screened following the Disney Infinity presentation. When further details are released following the event, we will update you. I would expect new images and maybe even a new trailer for Disney Infinity 2.0 tomorrow!
