Disney Interactive has just launched Disney Movies VR for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Available for free on Steam, the app allows users to explore the worlds of recent Disney films like never before.
Currently, the app offers players access to explore a hub world featuring “parks” from Star Wars, Avengers, and The Jungle Book. These experiences differ from one movie to another. For example, The Jungle Book includes 3D interactive scenes from the movie, while the Captain America: Civil War experience is a 360-degree virtual theater showing footage from the red carpet premier of the film.
Clearly, the app is not intended to be Disney Interactive’s next big venture, but it is a nice tech demo that showcases the potential of VR. Perhaps Disney has plans to do more with VR in the near future!
