BURBANK, Calif. — (May 13, 2014) – Disney Interactive and Harmonix Music Systems are taking a fantastical interstellar journey in the upcoming “Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved” with the announcement of the game’s newest realm, “The Capsule.” Set in a modular space station orbiting around Earth, the latest realm will feature Elton John’s “Rocket Man” and Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” as playable songs.
Previously announced realms “The Hollow” and “The Haven” have taken place in forest environments; “The Capsule” is the first to be set in space, introducing a new sensory experience for users that extends the vision and legacy of the original Fantasia film. At the center of “The Capsule” lives a lone astronaut monkey who is cut off from all forms of communication. What begins as a claustrophobic, deactivated space station, transforms into a fully-powered, living machine as players perform “In Your Eyes” and “Rocket Man.” These songs were originally announced at PAX East last month.
A video demonstration of “The Capsule” can be found on YouTube at:
