You probably don't remember my Disney/KingsIsle conspiracy theory post, so here's a link.
One of the major problems in my theory was that Disney only uses videogames to promote their movies and characters, and never in reverse. To quote myself, ". . . to me Disney uses their video games as part of their commercial blitz and not vice versa. They don't blitz their video games, they blitz their products with video games. Disney scooping up Kingsisle would bring them a whole *NEW* set of characters that are begging to be blitzed."
Yesterday a new Press Release hit the AP Wire from Disney announcing their new Swampy videogame character with the heading, "Disney hopes game character makes it to big screen." Now THAT's a heading! :) You should check out the article here.
Swampy is pretty awesome actually. It's like a cross between the Rubbadubbas and the Peter Pan croc.
To continue to extend the conspiracy theory, could this test case be the first steps down the lane to this?
*eyebrows wiggling* EH? EH?
Meh, since the article's tag line merely comes from the General Manager suggesting a wild theory (""Maybe five years from now, wouldn't it be great if there was a movie that started up on the App Store?" Decrem said."), it's all very premature to even make guesses, but I do find it very interesting.
Something to think about. I just want an amusement park named Wizard101 land.
Happy Community Manager Appreciation Day!
