Meet the filmmakers behind Disney-Pixar’s first Spark Short, “Purl,” streaming now on YouTube. 

Director Kristen Lester and Gillian Libbert-Duncan created the first of Pixar’s new series of short films, ultimately destined for Disney’s upcoming subscription streaming service, Disney+ (Disney Plus). 

According to Slash Film, a set of three shorts — “Purl” (below), “Smash and Grab” and “Kitbull” premiered at Disney’s El Capitan theater in Los Angeles in January in tandem with a one-week re-release of 1989 Disney classic “The Little Mermaid,” and are now released on Youtube on Mondays. 

Pixar’s YouTube channel also offers a behind-the-scenes view with minute interviews with the creators of each short, released in two videos on the same day as the shorts. 

“Smash and Grab” is the latest short, released on Feb. 11, 2019, a week following Purl. “Kitbull” arrives this Monday, Feb. 18 on the Disney-Pixar YouTube channel.

“You working on any movies right now?”
“Just one.”

Monsters University director Dan Scanlon coyly teased an inquiring fan on Twitter this month before announcing at D23 that he’ll be helming one of Pixar’s next projects: an “untitled suburban fantasy.” 

Variety.com reports that John Lasseter introduced the project and Scanlon at the Expo by saying, “We love taking audiences to new worlds they’ve never seen before.” An encouraging promise in light of the sequels currently slated for Pixar after original film Coco this year: Toy Story 4 and Incredibles 2, while exciting, won’t be taking anyone to completely new worlds. 

The film will cover a very personal topic to Scanlon: a unknown father, lost at an early age. (I am making a note to bring tissues to this one — Pixar films can really make you cry). 

Scanlon also explained that “this movie is a mixture of the fantastic and everyday.” The D23 website provides more insight:

The story is set in a world with no humans—only elves, trolls, and sprites—“anything that would be on the side of a van in the ’70s,” said the director. “In the film, we’re going to tell the story of two teenage elf brothers whose father died when they were too young to remember him. But thanks to the little magic still left in the world, the boys embark on a quest that will allow them a chance to spend one last magical day with their father.” 

The release date, while not yet set, should be no sooner than 2020, with slots on March 13 or June 19 available for that year. June 18, 2021, has also been reserved by Pixar.

Inspired by Scanlon’s “own relationship with his brother,” the film will star the voices of Chris Pratt, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Octavia Spencer and Tom Holland. Long-term Pixar producer Kori Rae will produce. 

Yes, this was the one Scanlon teased in 2017.

“Onward” follows two elf teens searching to discover if their “suburban fantasy world” still contains magic, according to the Hollywood Reporter. 

The film releases in theaters on March 6, 2020.
