What Is Zenimation?

Sometimes, you just need to chill out, relax, unwind, and take a deep breath.

If you’re a huge Disney fan (like me), then you might want to relax with the imagery and sound effects from your favorite Disney films and Pixar movies.

Thankfully, Disney has now provided a way to do that – without just putting on a movie and hitting the mute button!

So, what is Zenimation? According to the description on Disney+, Zenimation is the following:

Unplug, relax and refresh your senses for a moment of mindfulness with Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Zenimation. Whether it’s baby Moana being called by the ocean, Anna and Kristoff walking through an icy forest, or Baymax and Hiro Hamada flying over San Fransokyo, these iconic scenes become an aural soundscape experience like no other.

Disney Plus

In other words, they are not the only characters and places present in the episodes. For instance, the description of Cityscapes does not mention Agrabah, but you can see in the preview image that it will be included along with the others. Additional scenes, castles, and landscapes will also be presented with these.

Disney Plus “Zenimation” Review

If you want to know my opinion, here it is…

Zenimation is utterly awesome, uniquely Disney, and really refreshing and calming.

Granted, this is coming from someone that literally will put on Disney movies on low volume in the background during my day, because I’m just that obsessed with all things Disney.

But I’m clearly not alone either…

Plus, since I work from home, I love having Disney and Pixar movies on throughout the week. There’s nothing like writing about Disney with Disney characters to keep you company.

Disney’s Zenimation is another great way to do exactly that, but now I can keep the volume on! 😉
