GLENDALE, Calif. June 19, 2014 (Korea Bizwire)–Disney Publishing Worldwide today re-defines the storytelling experience  with the release of “Star  Wars Scene Maker, a new line of creativity apps  that gives kids and Star Wars fans of all ages the tools to  create, control, customize, capture and share their own 3D animated Star  Wars scenes. Utilizing simple, intuitive commands, the apps give  fans an unrivaled user-generated storytelling experience that allows  them to re-imagine and re-create iconic scenes from the Saga.

Featuring 3D models of characters, vehicles, and environments, “Scene  Maker” allows fans to zoom in, pull back and explore each animated Star  Wars scene.

Three movable cameras can be maneuvered and switched to different film  modes, with options to rotate and adjust vertical heights to give scene  makers complete creative control of how they film their scenes.  Additionally, iconic music and dialogue deepen the scene making  experience, while options to record original dialogue expand the level  of customization.
