Walt Disney Animation Announce “Short Circuit” Experiment Shorts For Disney+

Walt Disney Animation has announced a three new animated shorts that will be coming to Disney+ in spring of 2020!

These will be part of a new program called, Short Circuit, where anyone at the Walt Disney Animation Studios can pitch an idea and potentially be selected to create an original short film with the support of the Studio and their fellow artists.

Here are the details on the three shorts:

Jing Hua (Flower in the Mirror)

The first short comes from director Jerry Huynh, a technical director at Walt Disney Animation Studios. He’s worked on some of our favorite films like Moana and Ralph Breaks the Internet, so we can only anticipate his short Jing Hua will bring something magical to Disney+!

Just a Thought

Just a Thought is a short inspired by those awkward pre-teen years we all went through, and the newspaper comics that director Brian Menz grew up loving. With such credits on Disney favorites like Bolt, Big Hero 6, Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen, Zootopia, Moana, and Ralph Breaks the Internet, we’re certain his short is one we’re going to love!

Exchange Student

Natalie Nourigat also worked on Ralph Breaks the Internet most recently, but launched her professional career drawing comics. We’re hoping to see some of Natalie’s love of comics in the art style of her short Exchange Student.

More details will be announced at this year’s Annecy International Animated Film Festival on June 14th.

This “Short Circuit” program is similar to Pixar’s SparkShort program, which has already seen three shorts released and more will be released later this year.

Are you excited for these new shorts?
