Warren Spector on Oswald Rabbit

Below, another viral trailer for Epic Mickey. I actually hate giving them so much free publicity, but this is a slick talking-head mini-doc on the history of Oswald The Lucky Rabbit. They score extra points for the cameos of books by pals Craig Yoe and Mike Barrier.

Apparently creative director Warren Spector revealed all sorts of information about the game at this past weekend’s NY Comic Con, which included this quote: “Epic Mickey is the first time Oswald ever had a voice of any kind. Oswald’s voice is performed by Frank Welker.” For the record, Oswald spoke frequently in many 1930s Walter Lantz’ cartoons with June Foray providing his voice in the final Oswald theatrical, Egg Cracker Suite (1943).
