On Tuesday, Disney released a trailer announcing Pixar Popcorn, a new series arriving on Disney+’s streaming service. Initially, the series will consist of 10 short films featuring various beloved Pixar characters. Title of the film : Shore Day is the Way of the Incredible, Cookie Number, Dancing with Cars, A Day in the Life of the Dead, Finding Stories, Fitness and Beyond, Fluffy Things with Duck and Rabbit, Soul of the City and Unsurpassed Parking. Old and new characters will make their appearance, and the short films will be presented on the 22nd. Launching in January. You can watch the Pixar popcorn clip here:
All in all, it’s not a bad idea. Pixar’s short films and their emblematic characters are two of their defining characteristics. It makes sense to combine the two things, and they’ve done that before, usually when the film is released on DVD. The first on Disney+ makes sense because DVD and Blu-ray sales are declining in the age of streaming. I always plan on buying movies that I really like, but I understand that a lot of people don’t want to. Pixar has a long history of short films. In 1984, more than a decade before the release of Toy Story in 1995, André and Wally B.’s Adventures were released. The Luxo Jr. lamp even became the studio’s mascot because it represented hope for young artists. Personally, I like Pixar’s shorts: Geri’s Game, One Man Band, Jack-Jack Attack, Boundin’, Day and Night, and La Luna.
As for the shorts themselves, they are certainly very nice. Pixar’s animations are always great. Some stories sound better than others, and I’m more interested in seeing some characters again than others. I’m very interested to see what little Coco looked like. I’m all for a quick iteration of this film’s great set; I just hope it doesn’t become another overused Pixar property like Car Story or Toy Story. Fortunately, I doubt it’s a problem with Coco. The Incredibles short films are also a must for me, even if Shore Day sounds more to my taste than the Cookie song. Jack-Jack is not one of my favorite characters, and unfortunately he’s one of them, I’m afraid they’re overdoing it. I’ll probably watch it because I have a streaming service and I love Pixar.
But I have to admit that some of them don’t sound very good, especially Finding Nemo One and anything about the characters in Toy Story 4. I pretend Toy Story 4 doesn’t exist, and none of the new characters made a particular impression on me. As for Dori Fising, I think this character has done his thing and they should give him a break. Not all movies are toy stories, and I can’t help but think that some of these franchises don’t need to be that long. My cynical side wonders if some or all of the short films are not feelings to see which sequels are worth pursuing. Deep down, I have mixed feelings. I’m more interested in sequels to my favorite characters or even more recent ones like Soul Short. But I don’t think it’s a bad idea, and I’m sure short films will be very popular. I can’t wait to see what the untitled cutscenes will look like, and I’m looking forward to half of them. Everyone has their favorite characters, and I’m sure there’s someone somewhere who would love to see Toy Story 4 and the Finding Dory shorts. Just like the name Cookie Number makes me want to burst, I can’t wait for the incredible, Coco and Soul shorts. I’ll look into it anyway.
