Frozen Northern Lights

Disney Animation has been working on a Frozen 2 for the past several months, but we’ve still got a while to wait before the film actually hits theaters. In the meantime, though, we’ll get to see the gang back together again in a slightly different form. The Disney Channel is teaming with the LEGO Group for Frozen Northern Lights, a “brand extension” that will include a series of brand-new animated shorts.  Read More »

pixar short film Piper

If you’re like me, you enjoy Pixar’s animated short films almost as much as you do their features. The latest short from the Emeryville-based animation studio is Alan Barillaro‘s directing debut Piper, which in my opinion might be the best theatrical short film from Pixar in a decade.

I first saw this short film at a Finding Dory early press day a few months back, where minutes before the screening not one person outside of Pixar even knew of this short film’s existence. I was gobsmacked by this adorable yet beautiful piece of cinema. I have since seen it two more times and it doesn’t get old. You’ll see the whole short film playing in front of Finding Dory, in theaters later this week. But for now take in this short 24-second preview to get you excited.

Inner Workings

This weekend brought the first trailer for Disney Animation’s Moana, and now we also have a first peek at the short film that’ll debut with Moana. Inner Workings dives into the head-vs.-heart dichotomy we’re all familiar with, as a fearful brain and his good-time heart wrestle inside an ordinary Joe. An Inner Workings first look image has been revealed ahead of its world premiere at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival this week, and you can check it out after the jump.  Read More »

Monster Island Short Film

Universal and Legendary Pictures will be bringing the movie monsters King Kong and Godzilla to the big screen together in the summer of 2020, mostly because Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull just wanted to see the movie monsters fight. It’s a simple concept, and it’s an obvious match-up with the new version of Godzilla already unleashed on viewers and a new take on King Kong coming in the form of Kong: Skull Island.

But you don’t have to wait four years to see a new spin of Godzilla and King Kong doing battle, because filmmakers Harry Chaskin, Dan Lippert & Justin Michael have put together a hilarious stop-motion animated short called Monster Island that has total bro versions of the movie monsters getting into quite the tiff. Even though this is a cartoon, it’s slightly NSFW due to language and sexual humor. Read More »

pearl short film

One of my favorite Disney Animated films of all time is Patrick Osborne‘s short film Feast, which was released theatrically in front of Big Hero 6 and won an Academy Award. Well Osborne has already released his follow-up, although most people haven’t seen it yet because he created it for Virtual Reality. But thanks to Google 360, you can now watch it online in any browser, although you still can rotate the video around to look in any direction.

LEGO Star Wars Force Awakens Prequel

As you probably know by now, Disney has teamed with LEGO to release a series of Star Wars animated short films set before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We’ve posted a bunch of them on the site in the past, and they are definitely worth your time. The latest one, the fifth in the series, is titled “Attack of the Conscience” and tells Finn’s (at the time, still FN-2187) story leading up to the seconds before we see he in JJ AbramsEpisode VII. Watch that short and the other four previously released LEGO Star Wars animated short films, after the jump.
