Warren Spector has said that he would personally like to see more than just a game for Epic Mickey, as the revamp of the mouse harbors loads of possibilities.

These possibilities include comics, films, and turning it into a franchise.

“I’ve had some discussions with people and really, really want to see some comics and cartoons and feature animation built around this,” Spector told Kotaku. “There have been discussions about all sorts of things talking about other possibilities around this project. I really hope it’s going to happen and I’m going to keep beating on that drum.

“I certainly have big plans. Have they been approved? No. But I have had a lot of discussions about what is going to happen next. In my mind it’s already a franchise [and] I really can’t abide the thought that it will be OK or mediocre. We are going after Mario and Zelda, Ratchet and Clank, we all aspire to that.

“I don’t always succeed, but we’re always shooting for the moon. I’m a man of many motos, and one of them is fail gloriously.”
