Samsung and Disney have announced an AR Emoji pack that includes Mickey and Friends.
At launch, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse are the only two characters available with more characters from The Incredibles, Zootopia, and Frozen coming later this year.
“By extending our characters and stories to new digital platforms, we are creating daily Disney experiences everywhere our audience goes, and we are able to draw in new generations of fans,” said John Love, Vice President, Apps at Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “The Disney AR Emojis offer an innovative approach to content for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ and a fun way to bring magic to messages.”
To get the Disney characters for AR Emoji, just look for the Mickey Mouse & Friends AR Emoji in the Galaxy Apps store. Once downloaded, you can create messages to send to friends and family.
“With more than 6 billion emojis sent daily, our goal with developing AR Emoji was to provide a fun, exciting way to communicate and a new way to bring animated images to life,” said Younghee Lee, CMO and Executive Vice President of Samsung Electronics. “We knew there was no one better to partner with than Disney – creator of some of the most beloved characters in history – to make our AR Emojis the happiest faces on earth and give our users access to the most popular characters to share with friends across platforms.”
AR Emojis are only available on the Galaxy S9 & S9+ which is available today.
