Director Jeff Gipson said in a statement. "We hope more and more people begin to see the emotional weight of VR films, and with Cycles in particular, we hope they will feel the emotions we aimed to convey with our story."
The Disney short will air at SIGGRAPH's Immersive Pavilion, an area dedicated to virtual, augmented and mixed reality. "What's cool for VR is that we are really on the edge of trying to figure out what it is and how to tell stories in this new medium," says Gipson. "In VR, you can look anywhere and really be transported to a different world, experience it from different angles and see every detail. We want people watching to feel alive and feel emotion, and give them a true cinematic experience."

Nice to see people like Disney getting into the VR moviemaking scene, it shows that there is genuine interest there. If not home entertainment at the moment then I am sure they have big plans for OOH in their parks/cinemas.
