Disney to Introduce Breakthrough DVD Technology with Animated Musketeers

Buena Vista Home Ent. will launch two exclusive ease-of-use features with the Aug. 17 animated release of Disney DVDs THE THREE MUSKETEERS, starring Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy.

Disney's FastPlay is a new patent pending technology that allows viewers to experience all of the DVD without ever touching their remote. For viewers who prefer to navigate, the new EasyFind menus easily guide them to their favorite set up options and bonus features.

Following THE THREE MUSKETEERS, FastPlay will be included on select Disney DVDs. EasyFind menus will appear on all Disney DVDs after its debut.

With FastPlay, once the disc is inserted into the player, it starts to play automatically, including select previews, the feature and select bonus features.

EasyFind menus are an exclusive new menu system available only on Buena Vista Home Ent. DVDs. EasyFind menus provide consistent categories and graphic icons for easy identification of bonus material features. EasyFind simplifies the search for favorite bonus features. In addition, two-disc sets will feature an index page identifying all of the bonus features available on both discs.

Bob Chapek, president of Buena Vista Home Ent., says, "With our FastPlay technology, consumers, especially those with kids, will love this easier way to enjoy their DVD.And, if you want to navigate yourself, our EasyFind menus give you standard, consistent icons so you can quickly find your favorite bonus features on any Disney DVD you play."
