As education continues to thrive online, parents will soon have the option of turning to a new app. This week, Disney announced a new digital learning experience for children in first through third grades that will debut later this year.

BYJU’s Early Learning featuring Disney combines unique storytelling and everyone’s favorite Disney and Pixar pals. The open-ended experience will bring interactive videos, quizzes and Disney stories together in order to make math and English fun for kids.

“As an academic, I believe in the value of pairing storytelling with learning, especially for young children,” said Dr. Virginia Mann, Member of the BYJU’s US Content Advisory Board, Professor of Language Science at UC Irvine. “Combining BYJU’s content and innovative delivery with Disney’s world-class storytelling will encourage children to build a love of learning that is pivotal for the future.”

BYJU’s Early Learning featuring Disney will present activities in a non-linear format so they can be played again and again. Kids will also have the option to jump ahead and go back to access their favorite activities.

So which Disney characters will you find roaming the app? Expect to see the likes of fan faves from Disney and Pixar’s Cars and Toy Story, Walt Disney Animation’s Frozen, The Lion KingThe Little MermaidBeauty and the BeastAladdin and more!

Stay tuned for an official release date later this year.
