Buena Vista Introduces FastPlay

Technology will debut Aug. 17.

Buena Vista Home Entertainment is introducing two new kid-friendly features for its Disney DVD line of animated films in August.

FastPlay -- which allows viewers to watch a DVD without using a remote control -- debuts with the company's Aug. 17 release of "The Three Musketeers," starring Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy.

FastPlay automatically plays select previews, bonus features and the feature presentation when the DVD is inserted into a player.

The Aug. 17 title will also introduce the EasyFind menu, which uses consistent graphic icons to guide viewers through the options set up and bonus features.

The EasyFind menu will be featured on all Disney DVDs following the "The Three Musketeers," while only select DVDs will feature FastPlay.
