"The Disney 2016 tutorial, Moana: Wayfinding with Code, will bring the Hour of Code to students around the world for Computer Science Education Week and beyond!," exclaims the Disney Hour of Code Digital Toolkit. "Since 2014, The Walt Disney Company has worked with Code.org to build Hour of Code tutorials featuring Disney characters that inspire kids of all ages to try coding. Disney and Code.org's 2014 Hour of Code tutorial featured Anna and Elsa from Frozen and in 2015 the tutorial featured Rey, BB-8, Princess Leia and R2-D2 from The Force Awakens. Since that time, over 40 million students have tried Disney coding tutorials." Like Microsoft, the Hour of Code has apparently been very good to Disney branding. In 2014, after starring in a signature Hour of Code tutorial used to "teach President Obama to code", Disney Princesses Elsa and Anna went on to dethrone tech-shamed Barbie as the most popular girls' holiday season toy.
