Disney Publishing Worldwide today unveils two new storybook apps featuring original scenes from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ feature films, The Lion King (1994) and Tangled (2010). The “The Lion King: Timon’s Tale” and “Tangled: Storybook Deluxe” Apps, available now for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, are the first full-length interactive storybook apps to integrate specially rendered film animation, inviting children and Disney fans alike to re-live the classic tales.
“With the launch of our Lion King and Tangled apps, we are able to give families a new, dynamic way to read two classic stories from the convenience of their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch,” said Russell Hampton, president, Disney Publishing Worldwide. “We were fortunate to work closely with Walt Disney Animation Studios for a reading experience that features both brand new animation and actual film content that can be accessed on a variety of mobile devices. Disney Publishing is committed to making our stories accessible to children across all platforms, allowing them to read wherever, whenever, whatever, and however they want.”
Complete with customized interactivity, rich character development, and an Academy Award®-winning score—“The Lion King: Timon’s Tale” recounts Simba’s exciting adventures of becoming king, as told through the eyes of the comical and irreverent meerkat sidekick, Timon. Readers are asked to roar with King Mufasa, snatch grubs with Timon, draw with Rafiki, and swing with Pumbaa.
“Tangled: Storybook Deluxe” recounts the magical adventures of Rapunzel as she sets off on an action-packed journey across the kingdom with thief Flynn Rider—learning there is so much more to life outside the tower where she was held captive. Full of vibrant illustrations, word-for-word narration, charming sound effects, and original character voices, readers can play the “Catch Pascal” animated activity and “Catch the Lantern” games, record their own voices, read and explore, and solve puzzles throughout.
