Epic Mickey video shows off the “exquisite balancing act” of animation

During PAX 2010 we got some time with Epic Mickey and even got a chance to sit down and chat with Warren Spector, creative director of developer Junction Point. While both events let us see how amazing the game was in action and how deep the passion for the game went, ¬†neither shed light on things that the video above does.¬†Showing off the animation style, how the artists compared their work to the original masters, and even describing how they got Mickey’s ears to rotate just right, the developers definitely did their homework to please the Disney faithful.

Epic Mickey releases on the Wii at the end of November and should be played by anyone who even remotely likes Disney animation.
