PHOTOS: Disney & KaBOOM! Team Up With McFarland Community To Build New Playground!

In celebration of the release of the upcoming Disney film McFarland, USA, Disney and KaBOOM! joined with the community that inspired the film to build a brand-new playground in McFarland, California.

Yesterday, February 15th, over 200 Disney VoluntEARS came together with talent from the film, members of the McFarland community and the McFarland Tri-Agency Partners, and the nonprofit organization KaBOOM! to transform an empty lot in McFarland into a kid-designed playspace in less than eight hours. The playground is inspired by children’s drawings created at a special event in January, which were incorporated into the final playground design.

The new playground is one of many made possible through Disney’s longstanding relationship with KaBOOM! as part of Disney’s Magic of Healthy Living, an initiative that partners with parents to inspire kids to lead healthier lifestyles. By the end of 2015, Disney’s support will bring the magic of play to over 83,000 kids and families.

McFarland, USA opens in the U.S. on February 20th.

Check out great pics of the community working together to create this awesome playground!

Disney & myLingo Breaks Language Barriers For Moviegoers!

mcfarland

Walt Disney Studios has unveiled a new collaboration with myLINGO, a smartphone app that allows moviegoers to experience a film in the language of their choice discreetly through personal headphones.  For Disney’s upcoming release of “McFarland, USA,” moviegoers can enjoy the film in Spanish right along side their bilingual family and friends when the film hits theaters on February 20.

The myLINGO app uses the microphone on a moviegoer’s smartphone or other device to “listen” to the audio, once the movie has begun.  The app, through a proprietary algorithm, then matches the unique audio signature to its precise place in the movie, and plays back the alternate language audio through headphones in perfect sync with the film. The audio file will only play if it hears the movie, and once the movie is over, the file self-deletes from the app.

“We are delighted to bring the magical world of Disney films to a broader group of Spanish-speaking viewers and multicultural families at select theatres with this new technology,” said Paul Holliman, Vice President, Strategic Planning at Walt Disney Studios.  “myLINGO provides a rich and customized cinematic experience, where bilingual families and friends can share the same emotion, laughter and excitement together in a whole new way.”

The Spanish audio track for “McFarland, USA” will be offered for free via a promotional code throughout opening weekend February 20 – 22.   Following the opening weekend, filmgoers can access the audio track for $1.99.

“The Walt Disney Company is one of the most iconic and respected companies in the world, and  myLINGO is thrilled to be working together on such an important film about bringing people and communities together,” said Adam Polak, co-founder of myLINGO. Co-founder, Olenka Polak added, “myLINGO is dedicated to creating authentic and inclusive experiences that are accessible to all moviegoers no matter what language they speak.”

Cinemagoers can enjoy their customized audio experience in three easy steps:

  1. Download the myLINGO app for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

2. Before going to the theater, choose the Spanish audio file for McFarland USA and download it – either at home, or someplace with a strong Wi-Fi signal.

3. Be sure to bring your smartphone and good earphones that seal the ear canal.
