Disney today revealed the launch of its own GIF app, called Disney GIF, that will act as a keyboard extension and enable users to share a big back catalogue of Disney- and Pixar-themed GIFs in Message, email, and different social networks (by means of TechCrunch). With today’s launch, the app includes over 200 GIFs, with the business assuring more to be included as time goes by.

GIFs all set at launch consist of moments from films like Frozen, The Lion King, and the newly-released Pixar feature Inside Out. The app will certainly also showcase content from studios possessed under the Disney business umbrella, with GIFs from motion pictures like Star Wars and even ABC shows like Scandal and Once Upon a Time.


Perhaps taking a cue from the emotion-based Inside Out, the app lets users search by emotional condition, film, or see what’s presently trending with users all over the world. Although the app is free to download, anybody thinking about more premium content from the popular film Frozen can put down $$ 0.99 for one of 2 themed packs from the animated musical.

The step is an interesting one, particularly thinking about the rejection of app developer Matt Cheetham’s app GIF Finder previously in the year, due to the fact that it “consists of content or functions that look like numerous widely known, third-party marks, consisting of Disney characters.”

Although the app’s rejection was “largely due” to other home entertainment homes, Disney’s desire to be included in the meme- and GIF-generating world, and still own total control over the output, makes the launching of Disney GIF more easy to understand.

Disney GIF can be downloaded from the App Store free of cost. [Direct Link]
