pixar sparkshorts trailer

Over the years, Pixar shorts have gained as much prestige as the studio’s features. In fact, many a beloved animated short have become inseparable from the theatrical movie they were paired with — whether it was the Oscar-winning heartwarming Bao with Incredibles 2, or the classic Geri’s Game that got paired with A Bug’s Life, or the very early first Pixar short that birthed the studio’s logo, Luxo Jr. You could say that Pixar built its brand on those envelope-pushing, technologically cutting edge short films.

So it’s no surprise that the studio wants to cultivate new talent with its short film program, SparkShorts. Pixar has been slowly rolling out the shorts in theaters and on YouTube, but all 6 animated shorts from rising directors will soon debut on Disney+ this November. Watch the Pixar SparkShorts trailer below.
