Disney and Life is Tech, Inc. have teamed up to bring a new coding experience for anime and Disney fans alike. The recently debuted collaboration, called Disney Codeillusion by Life is Tech, features well-known and loved Disney characters and anime created by some of the world’s top artists, who set out to create a fun way for anyone to learn how to code.

The interactive world allows players to take part in adventures with Elsa, Wreck-It-Ralph, and Big Hero 6, among others. There are currently 14 different adventures available. Players also receive a Magic Book Starter Kit, a deluxe keepsake book that includes new and beautiful designs and offers a place to collect postcard rewards after players complete each learning experiment.

Throughout the experience, players will learn HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Processing languages — no experience necessary! With their newfound skills, players can also design their own games and websites.

Artists Ryosuke Nakamura and Mieko Hosoi created the anime characters. They are known for Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash Fantasy. The new game development was spearheaded by Life is Tech, Inc. CTO Yoshihisa Hashimoto, known for developing Sonic Unleashed for Sega and Final Fantasy XIV for Square Enix.

You can sign up for the game now at the Disney Codeillusion website.
