On December 10, the 2020 Disney Investor Day took place with an abundance of Pixar news being revealed. Taking the stage for the Pixar portion of the announcements was Chief Creative Officer of Pixar, Pete Docter. One of the first new projects Pete revealed was a set of mini-shorts called, Pixar Popcorn.
“Pixar Popcorn is a collection of mini-shorts featuring your favorite Pixar characters in all-new bite-sized stories created by Pixar animators.”Pete Docter
At the time of the presentation, there wasn’t an exact date for release, however, we now know that Pixar Popcorn will come exclusively to Disney+ on January 22, 2021. At this time we are unsure if all below mentioned titles will be released on that date.
- To Fitness and Beyond
- Chore Day: The Incredibles Way
- Dancing with the Cars
- A Day in the Life of the Dead
- Cookie Num Num
- Dory Finding
- Fluffy Stuff with Ducky and Bunny
- Soul of the City
We are definitely looking forward to the Pixar Popcorn mini-shorts, as the concept reminds us of the Cars shorty-shorts that were released back in 2013.
Which Pixar Popcorn short are you looking forward to the most? Are there any characters you wish the filmmakers would incorporate into future Pixar Popcorn shorts? I know we’d love to see more from the worlds of Onward and Monsters University. Be sure to watch the entire Pixar portion of the presentation below or directly on our YouTube page.
