A few weeks ago I announced that Disney Infinity 2.0 Marvel Super Heroes had been announced, and I am sure a lot of you out there were worried that actual Disney characters were not going to be getting a look in for the next entry in Disney Infinity. Well if you were one of these people then your worries unnecessary as Disney Infinity 2.0 is set to feature a selection of Disney characters and at these point in time there are two we know about. The first of these characters in Merida our brave heroine from the movie Brave and secondly from the new movie Maleficent, well Maleficent.

Here is Disney Interactive's official statement and overview on these characters:

Merida: With her untamed fiery red locks, this headstrong Disney•Pixar Princess will definitely leave her mark in Disney Infinity. Between her sharp sword and bow combo attacks with ricocheting arrows, she can upgrade her aim with elemental freeze arrows, freezing enemies in front of her then following up with rapid shots showing off her impressive athletic skills as an archer and sword fighter.

Maleficent: The wicked title character from the upcoming Walt Disney Studios film employs numerous magical powers and can attack using her magic in melee and ranged combat. To defeat enemies, Maleficent has the ability to utilise projectile and area of effect attacks that affect multiple targets within a specified area, brambles that she summons from the ground and ravens that she can call on to attack targets.

Merida and Maleficent will be available in retail stores this fall.
