Among them are Big Hero 6 from Walt Disney Animation Studios and Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy and Planes: Fire and Rescue from Disney Toon Studios. Several of the films, however, have yet to complete their required
qualifying run in Los Angeles. Category rules dictate that at least eight eligible animated features must be theatrically released in Los Angeles County within the calendar year in order for the category to be activated, although that does not appear to be an issue at this point in time.

REVIEW: ‘Big Hero 6: Baymax Blast’ for iOS Might Be Disney’s Best Movie Tie-In Yet

'Big Hero 6: Baymax Blast'When it comes to Disney and mobile apps, there are pretty much two things you can rely on: first is that there is almost always at least one tie-in app/game for a movie; second is that Disney Digital Books has consistently been releasing near flawless apps that go well above and beyond expectations. ‘Big Hero 6: Baymax Blast‘ betrays neither of these.
