A new multiplayer action-adventure game is slated for release on multiple consoles this fall.

Disney Interactive has officially announced Disney Universe, a new action-adventure game coming to Wii this fall.

First noted last week in a blurb on the Amazon release schedule, Disney Universe appears to be a cross between the LEGO games and LittleBigPlanet, as you play as generic characters that wear different Disney and Pixar-themed suits. The examples given are Tron, Alice (Alice in Wonderland), Mike (Monsters, Inc.), and Stitch. The levels that you'll take these characters through follow the path of different Disney movies.

Disney Universe will be playable at E3 2011, as well, so expect impressions of the game soon.
