Some of your favorite characters from Disney-Pixar films will soon be part of a new mobile game from Glu Mobile.

The game developer has partnered with Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media to create the new game, which is in early stages of development. Details about the game are unknown at this point, but it will be led by Mike Olsen, who joined Glu as SVP and creative leader in January 2017.

Olsen previously worked at Electronic Arts, where he led the design and creative direction for over 25 titles including “Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes.” By the time he joined Glu, “Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes” had been downloaded over 30 million times and earned more than $100 million in revenue.

Glu Mobile was founded in 2001 and is best known for games like “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” and “Restaurant DASH: Gordon Ramsay.”

“Disney is an iconic and globally recognized brand that transcends many demographics,” said Nick Earl, Glu’s president and CEO. “I am thrilled to announce that Glu will be working with Disney and look forward to pairing nostalgic and fresh Disney and Pixar content with Glu’s creative approach to game development.”

When it’s released, the free-to-play Disney-Pixar mobile game will be available worldwide on Apple’s App Store and Google Play.
