Background: Disney's FastPlay is a Disney DVD enhancement introduced in 2004. While it says that it plays the movie and bonus features automatically, it instead plays all the trailers on the DVD, followed by the movie coming immediately afterwards--this video shows that the average length of DVD previews with FastPlay activated is 8 minutes.
(August 17, 2004-)
Logo: The Disney DVD logo (with a mirrored arc) shines on a cloudy blue background. Tinker Bell flies up and waves her wand on the Disney DVD logo, changing it into the Fast Play logo, and then flies away with her pixie dust trailing behind her. The pixie dust leaves behind two purple icons below the logo: "Main Menu" on the right (which appears first), and "FastPlay" on the left (which appears second). The Disney FastPlay logo "sparkles" throughout the logo. The Main Menu icon flashes twice, then the FastPlay icon flashes three times timed with the narration. The FastPlay logo shines and the logo fades out.
Variant: On several foreign Disney releases with FastPlay such as Korean DVDs, the Tinker Bell animation is skipped, or the text is on their respective language.
FX/SFX: Pretty much everything in the logo.
Music/Sounds: A series of dings and whooshes with a short horn fanfare and an announcer (Tom Kane) saying "This Disney DVD, is enhanced with Disney's FastPlay. Your movie and a selection of bonus features will begin automatically. To bypass FastPlay, select the "Main Menu" button at any time. FastPlay will begin in a moment."
Availability: Common. Debuted on Mickey•Donald•Goofy: The Three Musketeers and has been used ever since. It appears on Disney Animation releases from Chicken Little onward, and on Pixar releases from Cars 2 (in which the Disney FastPlay notice is absent in its packaging) to Toy Story 4.
Editor's Note: None.
