How Disney Friends for Change Inspired Me

By Laura Marano, Disney Channel's "Austin & Ally"
Okay, this is a little embarrassing, but when I found out that I got the part for "Austin & Ally," I literally jumped up and down on my bed out of excitement. I just couldn’t help it! I had grown up with Disney Channel, and let’s be honest, who wouldn’t be thrilled about being on a Disney show? And this opportunity turned out to be way better than I ever could have imagined. I joined the Disney family and got the chance to do what I love every day, and on top of that, I’m also able to give to my community in so many ways.

Behind the Scenes of Disney's 'Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story'

By Mariam Sughayer, Disney Interactive
It’s a classic love story. Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl, and they live happily ever after. But that’s where the similarity ends. "Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story," our latest original stop-motion animated film, follows that timeless story arc... with a captivating, yet unconventional twist. Especially because the stars of the film look a bit different than your average cast of actors. At three inches tall and made of vinyl, Blank—an unpainted outcast from a colorful, vibrant land—finds himself on a quest that alters his destiny while searching for his lost soulmate, Bow. We recently caught up with Matt Wyatt, creative director, Disney Interactive, to hear about the development process of "Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story." Since it’s world premiere last month on Google Play, thousands of people around the world have viewed the film.
