Twisted Wonderland Mobile Game To Get Disney Plus Anime Adaptation

With Disney Plus trying to expand their markets across various demographics it was only a matter of time before the company would expand into Japanese Anime to entice more people to become subscribers. A new series was announced on Disney Plus’ Japanese Twitter account for an anime based on the Disney: Twisted Wonderland mobile game.

In Japan Disney had a popular mobile phone game called Disney: Twisted Wonderland. The player assumes the role of a new student at an academy called Night Raven College and many of the characters you encounter are based on various Disney IPs. From Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Hercules, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin and more.

The goal of the game is to interact with many of the top students from each dorm, themed after a different Disney series, and many of the characters resemble classic Disney villains. You attend different classes to improve your magic skills like flying and alchemy in various mini games. This all feels like some sort of Harry Potter fan fiction mixed with a Disney esthetic.

It’s a little funny that Disney is jumping into anime. Years ago they had a huge partnership with Studio Ghibli, but due to what can only be labeled as executive oversight the partnership was allowed to expire, thus leading to the Ghibli library of films making their way onto HBO Max. 

No release date has been announced yet. All that we know is that Black Butler creator, Yana Taboso, who did the art for the mobile game, will potentially return to assist in the art direction.

Are you looking forward to Twisted Wonderland making its way onto Disney Plus? Should Disney do more anime? Perhaps a Kingdom Hearts anime in the future?
