Somehow, the new Disney application for the Xbox 360 eluded us last week. It didn’t allude the sharp eyes of children everywhere, we’d imagine.

Starting last week, users of the new Disney for Xbox 360 app are able to stream animated shorts, clips from Disney Channel and Disney XD shows and movie trailers for upcoming feature-length films directly to their Xbox.

Xbox Wire says that Disney will also use the application to stream Disney Interactive Original shows at some point in the future. Disney for Xbox 360 is completely free to Xbox users and doesn’t require a subscription to any service –except Xbox LIVE, as does all entertainment application on the console.
