Disney+ Day is just around the corner and has been postponed until Thursday, September 8th this year. In addition to numerous premieres and other content on the platform, many Disney parks will feature celebrations, experiences and products. One of the premieres to look forward to on this special day is the short film “Memories,” starring Captain Marvel himself, Brie Larson.
Ideas are one of the most amazing things a human being can produce without requiring external resources to realize them. They come and go, ebb and flow, appear and disappear. Directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Elijah Allen-Blitz, “Memory” explores fundamental questions about the rich but often ephemeral nature of ideas.
The film revolves around a writer (Larson) who is blessed with an amazing idea but loses it when the phone rings. Presented in the form of a golden light, the idea is pursued by the writer’s inner child, who begins his adventures in a vast imaginary world. Memories explores how easy it is to lose touch with the world, but we humans can all find inspiration if we dare to recall what it was like to be young and have a free-vibrating imagination.
The short film is accompanied by a groundbreaking augmented reality application, where the experience is shaped by the film’s moving images. Select Disney+ subscribers living in the U.S. can participate in the story by scanning their TV, extending the immersive fantasy world into a real living room.
If you’re a subscriber or want to subscribe, other premieres to look forward to on Disney+ Day include Geppetto, directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring Tom Hanks The live-action adaptation of Pinocchio, a brand new series of She-Hulk: Lawyers, Cars on the Road series, documentary “Growing Up,” and an epic adventure in the wildlife series with Bertie Gregory.
Coinciding with Disney+ Day are special screenings of popular films from Walt Disney, Marvel Studios and Pixar. These events will be held in select AMC theaters from September 8-19. Disney+ Day also leads to D23 Expo: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event, which runs from September 9-11.
