It's been revealed via the Epic Mickey Wiki that there were two spin-offs planned for "Epic Mickey."
The first one planned was a game called "Epic Mickey Racers." As the name suggests, this game was a kart racer. Some of the characters planned were Mickey, Oswald, Minnie, Mad Doctor, Scrooge McDuck/Huey, Dewey, & Louie, and Cruella De Vil. Based on the concept art, some of the gameplay would have included some form of co-op similar to "Mario Kart: Double Dash."
The other game, according to Nintendo Life, was "Epic Donald." Concept artist from the development team Junction Point Patrick Block posted some art on eBay and wrote this:
Walt Disney comic and gaming conceptual artist Pat Block here.
In 2012 I had the very great pleasure and honor of working with Warren Spector and Junction Point on a follow up to Disney's Epic Mickey and Epic Mickey II.
The game was to feature Donald Duck, Duckburg, and the assorted classic world clan. I worked hard on a "Carl Barks" based Duckburg, puling scenes of the town from his comics and doing my best to keep a 1950's feeling spirit about the game world.
Sadly, this was about the time Disney decided to switch over to it's current gaming, more tablet oriented gaming focus.
While we were fully paid for our conceptual work on the project, to date, it has not been made.
With the new DuckTales project in the works, I have hopes we still might see the game, with some of our work, get made.
Junction Point was the team behind the first "Epic Mickey" games before they shut down. The shutdown was most likely due to "Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two" not selling well.
