Disney has launched “Disney Animated” for iOS, an interactive app that encompasses the history of animation and technology for all 53 films by the company. The app includes features such as interactive animations that feature Disney characters and the ability to zoom in on concept art and backgrounds to see intricate details. Also, the app allows users to animate a character from Wreck-It-Ralph using an onboard 3D animation package, as well as early looks at upcoming movies with viewable work-in-progress animation.
Discover how Disney animated films are brought to life. Explore pages packed with interactive images and multi-layer animated clips. Animate authentic Disney 3D character models, and control a Disney visual effects simulation. Browse a rich timeline of all 53 Disney animated feature films, and more.
The app is being released in conjunction with Disney's 2013 D23 Expo happening this week, in which Steve Jobs and "other talented contributors to Disney History" will be honored with a Disney Legends award. Specifically, Jobs is being recognized for his role at Apple and his contributions as an early investor and chief executive of Pixar, along with his work on the Disney board of directors.
