Experts say that the release of the Disney Movies VR only implies that top players in media such as Disney can finally take a plunge into virtual reality, marking what could be a wave of high-quality that a lot of people will enjoy.
Star Wars fans may be disappointed with the Disney Movies VR app, but a better virtual reality experience will be available soon enough.
