Besides its amazing movies, Pixar is known for its Pixar Shorts such as Geri’s Game. They have introduced a new program specifically for Disney+ called Pixar SparkShorts.
Per Jim Morris, the President of Pixar Animation Studios, “The SparkShorts program is designed to discover new storytellers, explore new storytelling techniques, and experiment with new production workflows. These films are unlike anything we’ve ever done at Pixar, providing an opportunity to unlock the potential of individual artists and their inventive filmmaking approaches on a smaller scale than our normal fare.”
We recently discussed the new SparkShort program and the first film released, Purl. The newest SparkShort is Smash and Grab. Smash and Grab was directed by Brian Larsen and produced by David Lally. (Brian Larsen directed the Pixar Short The Legend of Mor’due which was released in 2012.)
Smash and Grab tells the story of two antiquated robots who risk everything for freedom and for each other after years of toiling away inside the engine room of a towering locomotive. You will have to watch the film below to find out if they are able to make their escape!
