Not sure what to think of this one. I love Chip n' Dale. They've always been two of my favorite characters. From their time tormenting Donald Duck, all the way to Rescue Rangers. As usual per late, I'm not digging this new animation look at all. I've realized though, if the content is good, I'll come around to it eventually. D23 reported the announcement as such, "Chip ‘n’ Dale is currently in production for Disney+. The seven-minute episodes will chronicle the beloved little critters’ adventures in the big city through nonverbal, classic-style comedy. Disney’s London-based animation team partnered with the award-winning Parisian production studio Xilam Animation to develop the series, which combines a traditional style of animation with contemporary, comedic narratives. Jean Cayrol directs Chip ‘n’ Dale, and Marc du Pontavice serves as producer." So they're going back to their roots in the form of shorts. I've grown to love the new Mickey & Friends shorts. So, that's cool with me. This pic just doesn't scream their mischievous ways will still be present. Like they're gonna be somewhere between their original form & what we saw on Rescue Rangers. Anyway, what do y'all think? Not much to base a synopsis on, but what's this pic say to you? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
This is how you hand over heavy handed material & still keep it innocent & entertaining! The second of the SparkShorts, Smash and Grab , is everything I've grown to expect from Pixar. It keeps its message disguised under a highly entertaining short about to robot friends just trying to get away. While at the same time covering over the struggle of mundane, everyday real life work that never seems to payoff. These robots just want to reach an unreachable goal of ascending to the ranks of the ones they work for everyday. Literally tied to their underling positions, for without then they'll die. Never experiencing the true freedom of not needing to keep working. I'm sure there's a higher percentage of people that can relate to this than can't. The real beauty here though, besides the animation, is how well its material is hidden. That's the real Pixar trick. From a child's eyes this will be read as two friends that just want to get away & be free together. While the rest is left up to an adult's view to decipher. I love how this was pulled off, & will definitely be sharing this one with my loved ones. This actually felt like it deserved the Pixar name. What did y'all think?

"Many of you have suggested we show what transpired the night E babysat Jack-Jack. Well, we were WAAAY ahead of you!" With those words Brad Bird might've just tweeted out what could wind up being my new favorite part of Incredibles 2, AUNTIE EDNA, a new short directed by story supervisor Ted Mathot. This will be for the special features in in the home release, on Digital 10/23 and Blu-rav 11/6. I had a feeling they wouldn't waste the opportunity when I saw the film. This is gonna be great. Not only that, this is my daughter's favorite 2 characters. She's gonna be ecstatic when she finds out. Are we the only ones? Who else needs this in their life? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
I want a living dumpling so bad. This thing in friggin adorable! In an exclusive with Entertainment Weekly we got our first look at Bao , the newest Disney*Pixar short that will open Incredibles 2 on June 15th, & it looks like it will be overflowing with cuteness. Director Domee Shi describes the seven and a half minute short as a "modern day fairy tale, kind of like a Chinese Gingerbread Man story." A Chinese-Canadian woman suffers from empty nest syndrome, finding joy in taking care of one of her handmade dumplings that comes alive. Said dumpling is so cute, I might question eating dumplings in the future. Only for a couple seconds though, because they're delicious. Y'all know I love my cartoon shorts. Obviously, I can't wait for this, & I already see so.e version of a stuffed dumpling being purchased in my future. What do y'all think? Excited for this cartoon short of cuteness overload?
