“Miles from Tomorrowland: Runaway Shuttle,” the first interactive appisode for the popular Disney Junior intergalactic adventure series, is now live in the newly redesigned Disney Junior Appisodes app.
In “Miles from Tomorrowland: Runaway Shuttle” kids join Miles Callisto and his robo-ostrich best friend, Merc, on a space-tastic rescue mission. The adventure begins with an urgent distress call from Lucky’s runaway ice cream shuttle. It’s up to the Callistos to save Lucky before he crashes into the volcanic moon Io. Kids get to interact with the episode as they:
- Pilot the StarJetter and navigate through space junk on their way to Io!
- Target the restart lever to bring the shuttle back online!
- Practice space welding and boost their top speed!
- Set new speed records racing with Merc
The hugely popular Disney Junior Appisodes app has also been re-imagined to include a bold new easy-to-navigate interface that makes it easier for kids to find their favorite episodes and enhanced parental controls that help adults manage their kids experiences.
Developed by Disney|ABC Television Group’s Digital Media team, the Disney Junior Appisodes app offers true interactive viewing, allowing fans 2-7 to touch, tap, swipe, tilt, shake and talk their way through various fun-filled activities embedded into full episodes of some of their favorite Disney Junior shows.
The Disney Junior Appisodes app launched in 2012 as the “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally Appisode,” introducing an innovative new way for kids to enjoy their favorite shows. Well received by both fans and the industry, the app topped iTunes charts for weeks – making it to #1 on the Overall Free list – and won the 2012 Mobile Excellence Award for Best Content Extension Made for Mobile, as well as the iKids award for Best Web/App Series.
