Pixar Has New Short Films Releasing For Disney Plus On Launch Day
Purl, Smash and Grab, Kitbull, Loop, Wind, and Loop coming to Disney+.
The next big streaming service, Disney+, finally launches next week, and the new content continues to be added to the day one line-up. Avengers: Endgame has now been added to the initial batch of content (arriving sooner than previously expected), and we already know that there will be a host of classic Pixar movies to stream. But the studio has now announced that six new Pixar short films will also be available right out of the gate.
Disney released a new trailer for the collection of short films, which is titled Sparkshorts. The six films are Purl, Smash and Grab, Kitbull, Loop, Wind, and Loop. The shorts have all been made by upcoming animators at Pixar, and while three of them-- Purl, Smash and Grab, and Kitbull--were released online earlier this year, the other three will make their Disney+ debut on November 12. Check the trailer out below:
The SparkShorts program was first announced back in January. In a statement, Pixar boss Jim Morris said: "The SparkShorts program is designed to discover new storytellers, explore new storytelling techniques, and experiment with new production workflows. These films are unlike anything we've ever done at Pixar, providing an opportunity to unlock the potential of individual artists and their inventive filmmaking approaches on a smaller scale than our normal fare."
In related news, the full trailer for Onward, Pixar's next theatrical movie, was released earlier this month. The movie stars Tom Holland and Chris Pratt as two Elf brothers who embark on an unusual quest, and it hits theaters in March next year.
