Remember when your imagination was real?
Disney+ subscribers can experience the short film Remembering in a whole new way! Remembering: The AR Experience is a first-of-its-kind companion augmented reality app that lets Disney+ subscribers extend The World of Imagination into their living room.
Now streaming on Disney+, Remembering is an original short film directed by
Elijah Allan-Blitz and starring Brie Larson. It’s the story of a writer who loses touch with her creative essence and the captivating journey one idea takes to reunite with her. Guided by a mysterious child, the idea travels through a
magical world where anything imagined, dreamed or wished is
brought to life. It‘s easy to lose touch with this world, but each of us
can be inspired by it—if we just remember.
With this immersive augmented reality app, Disney+ subscribers can become a part of the story like never before. Use an iPhone or iPad to step into this magical world and rediscover the creative spirit that lives within each of us.
Remember—with a little imagination, anything is possible!
NOTE: For the best experience, we recommend using this app on an iPhone 12 Pro or Pro Max (and above), an iPad Pro 12.9” 4th Gen (and above) or an iPad Pro 11” 2nd Gen (and above). As the app relies on cutting-edge technology, the experience is optimized for lidar-enabled devices, which excel at sensing the depth and contours of a physical space. It will still work on a range of other devices, but results may vary.

Ratings and Reviews
Only one scene
I would honestly give it 3-4 stars but there aren’t intervals that could make it so. Here’s my reasoning for this rating.
One. I’m 16, and it didn’t accept that age even though the age rating is 4+. Had to delete it and re-download it to re-enter my age to something else. The app just said something like “you aren’t the right age for this experience” and did nothing else. There was no back button and no way to refresh the app without it remembering I was 16. I don’t understand why they would cut off the children audience by making that age restriction.
Two. There’s only one scene. It had so much potential to have multiple scenes, like at least two or three based on the film. I get that it would take time, but the fact that it was one scene made it slightly underwhelming. Maybe there was something I missed besides the lake? I don’t think there was any other scene and if there was I missed it.
It was pretty cool though. The tree and the light popping out, the waterfall pouring over the laundry in front of my tv, and more. I would love to see more though, I’m just upset there wasn’t more.
No complaints about the quality of the art. That was spectacular in my opinion. Great job.
The future is here.
The film was okay but the AR scene looked great. It seemed more like a simple story contrived for the sake of showing off Augmented Reality. I hope to see better AR films in the future.
Imagine the possibilities with AR technology. For example, you go to Disneyland with either your smartphone or AR glasses and see x-wing fighters fly by at Galaxy’s Edge. Or while waiting in line, ghosts coming out of the walls at Haunted Mansion ride. Perhaps Mickey can be your virtual guide and lead you to great places to eat or show you the quickest way to a particular ride. These are exciting times.
Pretty Simple yet Worked in the Dark
AR worked just fine for me on an iPhone SE 2nd Gen. The experience was a little bland/unimaginative (for an imagination experience). But I just see it as Disney testing interest in this sort of thing and figuring out how it would work. It does (even worked for me in a completely dark room as it anchors to the bright TV). I hope they do more with it than a simple pond with untextured dolphin doodles and a couple trees. Say like a Star Wars action scene with spaceships coming out of the screen? 🤩 They could even take past movies and release new AR experiences for them. Now THAT would definitely increase the draw for a Disney+ subscription.
