The only place to find your favorite Disney characters in emoji form is on Samsung’s latest flagship.

Samsung and The Walt Disney Company agreed to a deal that brings many of the media company’s characters to the Galaxy S9. When the phone was announced last month, a new feature called AR Emoji was highlighted. It takes an individual’s face and mirrors it onto an animated character, following every movement and translating them in real time.

Now you don’t have to choose between random characters and a copied version of yourself. Just launch the Camera app on the Galaxy S9, move to the AR Emoji mode, and download the Disney characters pack.

Films lending their characters to AR Emoji include The IncrediblesZootopiaFrozen, and more. Two of Disney’s most identifiable characters, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, are also involved in the partnership. Neither Samsung nor Disney specified how many characters are available, but we have to assume the number is rather high.

Around the world, the Galaxy S9 went on sale today. And that’s why the announcement of Disney characters taking up an AR Emoji residency is coming now. Samsung’s aiming to create additional buzz for the 2018 flagship since many are feeling unenthusiastic about the phone.

If you’re picking up a Galaxy S9, be sure to let us know how you’re liking those AR Emoji.
