Disney Create & U Rock Giveaway!!!

Hey, have you ever heard of Disney?  No?  Well, it's like this kabillion dollar corporation that owns the souls of all children until they turn 16.  Just an FYI, but they are HUGE!  Well, this summer Disney was not about to rest on their laurels and twiddle their thumbs.  They decided to do more big things!

First is Disney Create. Create is an entertainment portal that offers a brand new way to interact with Disney character art and graphics. Logging on to Create enables fans to work with Disney art through great applications that help create and design art work, comic books, music videos and much more. It’s also a great way to express creativity and communicate with other Disney fans.

In July, Disney.com Create is launching an all-new feature called the Group Wall, where thousands of original pieces of art are created around a central them and then added to a larger mosaic.  The first group wall is themed around, what else but Mickey Mouse – the one that started it all.  The Group Wall mosaic is updated in real time so users can watch as new artwork is added, and it features unique tools allowing guests to locate their artwork within the mosaic.

Some of the cool features include:

Create Apps allow children to design artwork, comic books, music videos, animated pets and more, all using Disney characters and graphics. 
Comic Creator
Craft a comic book using favorite Disney characters.  Guests lay out pages using fun and wacky graphics, text and images to create their own rich narrative.

Digital Painter
Paint like a master artist, right in your browser, using tools, textures, and fun pens.  Create a masterpiece that can be shared for everyone to see!

Illustrate an animated online pet that can be individually styled and customized.  Guests choose from a number of different animals, each with its own collection of pre-set animations, interactions, and accessories. 
Photo Mashup
Combine photos of favorite Disney stars with hip stickers and cool gear to create personalized images for use on a computer desktop, phone, inside a school locker, or any other fun application guests can dream up.

Music Slideshow
Compose a harmonious mix of images, text, and sound.  Guests create their own music videos using photos of Disney stars, their own text, and a choice of songs from artists such as Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers.

Group Wall
An innovative new community gallery called the “Group Wall” will launch on Disney.com Create.  The first Group Wall theme is a “Tribute to Mickey” and will build a dynamic mosaic portrait of Mickey Mouse with user-generated content. 

My Portfolio
Create an online art portfolio on Disney.com to share with friends, filling it with creations from all of the Create activities – digital paintings, comic-books, pets and more.

So get your or your child's creative juices flowing and head over to Disney Create!

The popular user-generated content promotion lets fans channel their inner Rock Star, by creating and submitting their own music videos set to songs by Disney favorites like the Jonas Brothers and Allstar Weekend.

By entering U Rock, fans can win chances to meet Disney stars like Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato on the Camp Rock 2 tour and trips to LA to party with the cast of Phineas and Ferb or Allstar Weekend.
