Disney Licenses Mobile Games to Chinese Firm

Walt Disney Co. is providing two of its best-selling mobile games to the Chinese market in an agreement with a Chinese mobile-gaming and handset company. China Mobile Games and Entertainment Group Ltd. will make “Temple Run: Brave” and “Where’s My Water” available to users of the Android smartphone and through its own Aiwan game platform. The Burbank media and entertainment company and China Mobile will share in the revenue generated by the two games. “Temple Run: Brave” was released in June to coincide with the Disney Pixar film “Brave” and became a best seller at the Apple App store. “Where’s My Water” was launched in September 2011 and features Swampy the Alligator in his quest to repair the pipes in his home to take a shower. Shares of Disney gained 50 cents, or more than 1 percent, to $47.94 in late trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
