Finally, lots of fab film VR content all in one place!
Disney has just launched a new app that curates all its virtual reality content in one easy-to-use setting.
With Disney Movies VR fans can stand outside the iconic turreted castle, where they’re able to select between portals that send them to experiences in the worlds of Disney, Lucasfilm, and Marvel.
The Disney area features four Jungle Book experiences including a tree-top meeting with Scarlett Johansson’s Kaa, an intimidating face-to-face with Christopher Walken’s giant orangutan King Louie, a 360° interview with the film’s stars, and 360° footage of the red carpet premiere.
The Lucasfilm section has two Star Wars: Force Awakens experiences: one where you get to experience first-hand what it’s like to speed around on a Jaku Desert Racer and another where you are a Jaku Spy.
The Marvel arena features one experience in it – so far – from the Captain America: Civil War premiere.
Sadly, for now, you have to have the full VR kit – including a HTC virtual reality headset, and a PC on which to run the app.
Hopefully Disney will mix up their content with more accessible 360° YouTube-style videos or Google-cardboard compatible content in future.
