Disney Interactive Announces Toy
Story Mania!

Inspired by the Disney/Pixar
Feature Film "Toy Story," Exclusively for Wii

Beloved "Toy Story" Characters
Provide Backdrop for Family-Friendly Carnival-Style Video Game

Disney Interactive Studios today
announced Toy Story Mania!, inspired by the Disney/Pixar animated feature “Toy
Story,” will be released exclusively for the Wii™ home video game console this
fall. Toy Story Mania! showcases an array of entertaining games based on the
iconic characters and humor from the popular Disney/Pixar “Toy Story” franchise
at the new Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort attractions.

“The ‘Toy Story’ franchise is a fun,
dynamic and heart-warming series containing characters and themes that connect
with every age group,” said Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global
marketing, Disney Interactive Studios. “Toy Story Mania! combines those popular
elements with the unique antics of the new theme park attraction for the
ultimate in family entertainment.”

Toy Story Mania! is the first video
game to place characters from the “Toy Story” films into a carnival game setting
and is expected to resonate with fans of the films and the attraction, as well
as gamers who like pick-up-and-play party games. In the game, players experience
the fast-paced, zany fun of the Toy Story Mania! theme park attraction, which is
an interactive experience requiring 3D glasses and involving rapid or
quick-firing shooting galleries.

In addition to galleries adapted
from the attraction, the game includes new and original galleries and a series
of mini games, all hosted by beloved characters from the movies. The
thematically-connected levels are designed for up to four players of all ages
with competitive and co-operative multiplayer options. Toy Story Mania! also
includes bonus 3D features, transforming the game experience with eye-popping
visuals.

The Pixar-created “Toy Story” and
”Toy Story 2” have both had successful box office and DVD sales. The Disney
Digital 3D theatrical re-release of “Toy Story” is in the works and will open in
theatres on October 2, 2009, followed by the 3D re-release of “Toy Story 2”
opening on February 12, 2010, leading up to the premiere of “Toy Story 3” in 3D
summer 2010.

Developed by Papaya Studio, Toy
Story Mania! will be available this autumn exclusively for Wii.
