Before the plug was pulled on Disney Infinity, a whole bunch of figures were planned. We’ve previously seen designs for Peter Pan, Spider-Gwen, and plenty others.
An artist who worked on Disney Infinity has since revealed the existence of a Rogue One series. In an image posted on ArtStation, he writes that he sculpted a Baze Malbus model, but it was sadly cancelled.
Concept art shows cancelled Epic Disney Racers

Within the past week, we heard about the scrapped Epic Donald, which would have been the third entry in the overall Epic Mickey series. Aside from that, Disney was also tossing around the idea of a spin-off project called “Epic Disney Racers” at some point.
The game was to include characters from the main Disney animated canon as well as ones from Epic Mickey. Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, The Mad Doctor, Scrooge McDuck & Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Cruella De Vil have been shown in concept art.
Aside from that, there’s not too much else to go on. Co-op appears to have been considered, and the ability to attack other racers with a character exclusive weapon, such as Mickey’s brush, Oswald’s remote, and Dewey/Louie’s exploding money bags. You’d also be able to see damage on the vehicles.
Concept art of Epic Disney Racers can be found below. It’s thought that the project ended early in development.
New art reveals Epic Donald, scrapped follow-up to Epic Mickey

Disney and Junction Point worked together on two Epic Mickey games. At one point, a third title of sorts was planned, but was ultimately cancelled.
Disney illustrator Patrick Block is now selling concept art from what would have been Epic Donald. In his post, Block states that the game would have featured “Donald Duck, Duckburg, and the assorted classic world clan.” The team was “fully paid” for its concept pieces, though the project was never made. Disney ended up changing its focus in the gaming market, so it was scrapped.
You can find concept art from the cancelled Epic Donald below. We also have Block’s message after the break.

Disney Infinity 3.0 came to a premature end in May. With the game meeting such a sudden halt, much content was scrapped despite being well in development. We’ve already heard about the Dr. Strange figure that never made it to market, but that wasn’t the only new toy in the pipeline.

– Peter Pan
– Lightning McQueen Premium Figure
– Buzz Lightyear Premium Figure
– Elsa Premium Figure
– Darth Vader Premium Figure
– Hulkbuster Premium Figure
– Jack Skellington Premium Figure
– Hulk Premium Figure
You can see what these figures could have looked like in the gallery below.

Here’s the full timeline for the discontinuation of Disney Infinity’s online services:
