Noovie Brings ‘Toy Story 4’ Trivia to Shuffle Cinema Game
Fans across the U.S. can get ready for Disney-Pixar’s summer blockbuster with all new games from movie trivia mobile game Shuffle — from National CineMedia, creators of the Noovie pre-show. This marks the first studio collaboration for Noovie Shuffle.

  • Star Chains – Find the connection between Pixar movies and actors to create a chain of correct answers. The longer the chain, the higher the points.
  • Match Up – Correctly match 3 pairs of Pixar movie-related cards. The faster you are, the more sets you get to match and win.
  • Timeline – Which came first? Decide if an event happened before or after another event, such as the year a Pixar movie was released or the plot sequence of a story.
  • Bonus Round – Click on as many cards as you can that fit a given Pixar movie topic or category before they disappear.
