Disney+ launched it’s newest short-form series Zenimation that combines scenes from legacy animated movies into a relaxing, meditation experience, no dialogue or soundtrack needed.
Each of the 10 episodes features a theme, for example Episode 1 Water, displays water animation scenes and heightened audio from The Little Mermaid, Moana, and Frozen for a zen, ASMR-like experience. Each episode lasts only 5-7 minutes. Other episode titles include Discovery, Flight, Cityscapes, and more.
Unplug, relax, and refresh your senses for a moment of mindfulness with Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zenimation” – an animated soundscape experience. Whether it’s baby Moana being called by the ocean, Anna and Kristoff walking through an icy forest, or Baymax and Hiro Hamada flying over San Fransokyo, these iconic scenes become an aural experience like no other with the sounds of ocean waves, an icy forest and soaring flight. “Zenimation” pays tribute to both the visual and sound artists who have created Walt Disney Animation Studios’ legacy of films.

With the coronavirus throwing a big wrench in production plans across all platforms, it’s hard not to wonder if this is Disney’s attempt to still create ‘new’ content during the global pandemic. Last month we saw the debut of a Frozen short series produced entirely from home. This might be another homemade production featuring clips from finished productions that Disney has cleverly released as new content.
Either way, it’s a super chill, relaxing way to spend an extra 5 minutes.
