Disney wants you to bring your iPad to the Little Mermaid movie?
The movie theater is one of the few remaining sanctums where you’re largely safe from the annoying glow of smartphones and tablets.
Well, at least until Disney re-releases “The Little Mermaid” on September 13. The studio is actively encouraging kids to bring along iPads and play games while the movie is showing on screen.
Specifically, they’re inviting you to be part of Ariel’s world with their own app — Disney Second Screen Live — designed to let viewers interact with the film. It’s essentially a kid-friendly blend of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” karaoke, and video games.
To quote Cathy, “Ack!”
