So I was recently watching some 'making of' videos on YouTube for the new Epic Mickey game. They have it in a advertisement at the top of the screen if you go there now. And it was really interesting learning more about the story of the game and whatnot.
Basically, a large part of the story revolves around 'forgotten Disney characters', the primary one of which is Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. In the game, we find that Oswald is actually Mickey's big brother and he looks at Mickey as having the life and fame he never got to have. You should watch the videos if you want to see more.
But it got me thinking ... would or should Disney start integrating Oswald into the parks more? I was just at Downtown Disney and saw some collectible pieces featuring Oswald and Walt. Apparently Disney bought back the rights to Oswald in 2006 but just hasn't done much with him yet. But now with Oswald appearing to make a comeback, what do you guys think would or should happen with him? Should he become another costumed character in the park? Maybe should some of the original Oswald cartoons be showcased along with the Mickey cartoons in the Main Street Theater? Should Oswald be one of the characters on the boat at the end of Fantasmic! ? Or should he maybe even get his own attraction or ride? ... Which come to think of it ... while Mickey certainly has attractions featuring him, he doesn't really have a ride of his own in any of the parks, nor do any of the main Disney characters... hmm, why is that?
So what do you guys think? How far should Oswald be integrated back into the Disney family, and what would you guys want to see or not want to see?
