Disney releases new Lion King and Tangled storybook apps
Disney Publishing has released two new storybook iOS apps featuring stories and original scenes based on Walt Disney Animation Studios’ feature films The Lion King and Tangled. The two new full-length interactive storybook apps, The Lion King: Timon’s Tale and Tangled: Storybook Deluxe integrate specially rendered film animation allowing children and Disney fans alike to re-live the classic tales on their iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
Based on the 1994 film, The Lion King: Timon’s Tale ($5) tells the story of Simba’s adventures on his way to becoming king from the perspective of his meerkat sidekick Timon. The app includes customized interactivity, rich character development and the Academy Award winning score from the movie. Tangled: Storybook Deluxe ($7) draws from the more recent 2010 film recounting the magical adventures of Rapunzel as she journeys across the kingdom with thief Flynn Rider. The storybook app includes vibrant illustrations, word-for-word narration original character voices and interactive games, puzzles and other activities. Both apps are universal and require iOS 4.0 or later.
