Through Disney Emoji Blitz, players collect and match hundreds of Disney Animation, Pixar and Star Wars emojis. The game’s players also earn prizes, complete missions, and discover new emoji characters from Disney Animation’s Wreck-It Ralph, Mickey Mouse & Friends, Disney Villains, Pixar's Toy Story and more. Disney Emoji Blitz engages users by combining a unique match-3 blitz game with a deep emoji collection mechanic.

Disney Emoji Blitz is currently available on the App Store and Google Play. Other free-to-play mobile titles developed under the Jam City and Disney agreement will be available worldwide on the App Store and Google Play.
