The app enables users to watch their Disney, Pixar and Marvel digital movie collection across their devices.

“We are very excited to announce Google Play as our newest partner for Disney Movies Anywhere,” said Disney Studio In-Home and Digital Distribution & Disney-ABC president Janice Marinelli.

“We set out to create an exceptional Disney experience that made owning digital movies easy and fun, and with Google Play now on board following our successful launch in February, we are able to deliver unprecedented availability and ease for consumers across a broad range of mobile devices.”

Through its integration with Google Play, the app’s users can buy their favorite movies and then watch them through the free Disney Movies Anywhere app and website, as well as everywhere Google Play Movies is available by downloading the app and connecting to their Google account.

“Our partnership with Disney now gives Google Play users the ability to conveniently watch all of their Disney, Marvel and Pixar digital movies that have been purchased from any Disney Movies Anywhere participating retailer,” said Google Play Movies partnerships Jonathan Zepp.

The Disney Movies Anywhere App is available in the U.S. for free from the Google Play store and from the iTunes App Store. Sign up is also available through the Disney Movies Anywhere website.
