A play set based on characters from Pixar's Toy Story series is headed to Disney Infinity alongside more characters, the game's creators announced during Disney's D23 Expo today.
Jessie the cowgirl will join space ranger Buzz Lightyear and Sheriff Woody in the Toy Story play set, which will be available in October.
Sorcerer's Apprentice Mickey Mouse from Fantasia will also be available in Disney Infinity. Those in attendance for the reveal received a Mickey game piece, which won't be available at retail until 2014.

(Phineas and Ferb) and Anna and Elsa (Frozen) — some of whom have been featured in trailers for the game — are also coming to Disney Infinity, beginning this October and continuing through 2014.

The characters were unveiled today during what Disney bills as the "ultimate Disney fan event" at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif. Disney Infinity's creators announced that the California theme park will be available as a toy set in the game at launch.
Disney Infinity is set for release next Sunday, Aug. 18, for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. At the game's reveal in January, we learned that Disney Infinity's characters would "exist and interact in one game across" platforms, including Windows PC. However, a Windows PC Starter Pack is not available for pre-order at Amazon, Best Buy, the Disney Store, GameStop, Target, Toys R Us or Walmart. The Associated Press reported today that the game will be "accessible through Nintendo 3DS and PC, and on tablets and smartphones." We've reached out to Disney Interactive for clarification and will update this article with more information as we receive it.
