The six shorts are part of Disney Pixar’s SparkShorts, which allows employees of the Pixar animation powerhouse to tell their own personal stories. So far, the program is in its infancy, as it’s still in experimental stages. Pixar is the standard when it comes to creative and inventive storytelling, and this new initiative is in keeping with that theme.
Each of the six shorts is an artist’s project that tells a story familiar to them personally, and the result is something truly heartwarming and magical. Purl, Smash and Grab, and Kitbull were each released online earlier this year as a promotion for the new Disney+ streaming service. But Pixar fans will have to wait until November 12 to see the other three shorts.
Get a taste of the new SparkShorts in the YouTube video below.
