Apple's iPad App of the Year for 2013. Selected by Mashable as a Mashie Award finalist for Best Branded App. Awarded Best Digital Book in the FutureBook 2013 Innovation Awards.

Discover how Walt Disney Animation Studio films are brought to life. Dozens of top animators, artists, technicians, and designers contributed to making Disney Animated an unprecedented hands-on experience. Disney Animated, presented in English, captures the original storytelling of all Disney animated feature films, allowing you to browse never before seen concept art, visual effects and more.

Just added: An all-new chapter exploring Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 53rd animated feature, Frozen. Discover the art and inspiration behind the Kingdom of Arendelle, learn how animators incorporate personality into costumes and explore techniques used to develop humorous characters through art and animation. The update also gives you exclusive behind-the-scenes access to Frozen's concept art, character sketches, test animation, scenes from the film and a new background in the Elsa’s Snow animation workshop.

Throughout Disney Animated, explore pages packed with interactive images and multi-layer animated clips. Animate authentic Disney 3D character models, and control a Disney visual effects simulation. Browse a rich timeline of all 53 Disney animated feature films, and more. Trace your finger over the Color Map: a single full-screen image that shows every scene from every Walt Disney Animation Studios animated feature film in thumbnail form. Never before has this complete catalog been browsable in this way.

Disney Animated is the most comprehensive and unprecedented look at Disney animation to date; it brings the animators' desks to your iPad. The app gives you access to an astonishing amount of material from all eras of Walt Disney Animation Studios, beginning with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) and continuing through an exclusive in-depth look at Frozen.

Bonus Content:

Disney Animated contains an unabridged version of the Principles of Animation chapter from the iconic work The Illusion of Life: Disney Animation by Frank Thomas and Ollie Johnston. Unlike in the print edition, all the illustrations move when touched.

Background Information:

Disney Animated is a co-production of Disney Interactive, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and Touch Press. It is co-authored by best-selling writer and Chief Creative Officer of Touch Press, Theodore Gray, and Producer/Creative Director for Walt Disney Animation Studios, Dave Bossert.

Special Note on Installation:

To install this app on your iPad, you'll temporarily need more space than is stated on the iTunes store page, up to 6.0Gb. Once the app is installed, it goes back to 2.0Gb. If this is an issue, there are two possible solutions, the first option being the ideal:

1) Download the title to your PC/Mac via iTunes and then sync with your iPad, which eliminates the need for extra space. Re-downloading via iTunes on a PC or Mac will not cause you to be charged twice, providing you are signed into the same iTunes account as on your iPad.

2) Temporarily remove some data from your iPad to clear space, and then you can put it back on your iPad once the app has been installed.

Waste of money...

OMG I was so excited to get this but when I looked at the price I was in shock. So I was like ok whatever if it's expensive it's good, well it wasn't there aren't many things that interested me. No instruction either. And the workshop only let's you work with Vannalpe with hardly any poses. And the Elsa show got very boring after a while. I wish I could have rated this 5 stars but this was a waste of money. I wouldn't recommend this unless you like wasting money.


This app is SO cool! They have videos that are HD and really neat interactive pieces to it. I would love if they added more every so often to make me want to open the app more often! :) 😄😄😄


Are we going to get an update showing Frozen's two Academy Awards?

Great app. Really interesting seeing how far Disney's animation went over the last 75ish years.
