Disney is hoping to get you to your summer destination–in peace! The House of Mouse is promoting its recently launched Disney Movies Anywhere app as a source of road trip entertainment.
Available for iOS devices (sorry Android users), the app allows you to browse, view, and purchase a wide variety of Disney titles while on the go. Of course, that lineup also includes plenty of goodies to satisfy your Marvel and Pixar fixes. As GeekMom Cindy mentioned a while back, one of the other great things about the app is that it even offers up tasty nuggets about some of the featured films. Just look under the Discovery section.
As part of the summer push, the studio just put out a little infographic (see below) about how many Pixar movies it would take to get to key destinations. Sure, it’s limited (and do you really have 2,000 movies to watch between Australia and Los Angeles?), but as a GeekMom who’s planning two major road trips this year, I like the travel ideas. Of course, I do expect my son to do other things and even look out of the window on occasion. Some of those highways can be long and boring, though!
Something that isn’t very boring is Pixar Summer Movies to Go, a current in-app section that has all sorts of interesting exclusives about Pixar’s fan favorites. Each week, users can get tidbits about different films, as well as exclusive bonus content, including filmmaker introductions, trivia, and even the “Countdown to Pixar’s Ultimate Movie-Making Secrets.”
This week, the app is hosting “12 Surprising Facts about Finding Nemo.” Sadly, we don’t have all 12 for you, but we do have a little teaser above. To get the full list, you’ll need to download the Disney Movies Anywhere app. And you should do that—it’s free!
