Disney has announced that a second batch of shorts from its Launchpad program are going to be released on Disney+ on Friday, 29th September 2023. Disney’s “Launchpad” is a collection of live-action shorts from a new generation of dynamic storytellers. Six filmmakers from underrepresented backgrounds were selected and provided with the opportunity to share their perspectives and creative visions that will show audiences what it means to be seen.
Here are the details on the new shorts:
Determined to win an ice cream competition with a flavor inspired by her late Tia Abuela’s Puerto Rican treats, a teen girl turns to her trailer park neighbors to help figure out the winning recipe.
Twelve-year-old Clarice Cheung feels like she’s invisible, especially next to her older sister Naomi. But when a fight breaks out at the dinner table, it awakens a ghost that begins taking the family, one by one. Now Clarice and Naomi must work together to stop this powerful spirit, before their family is torn apart forever.
Determined to prove himself a Compton legend like his ex-fighter dad, an offbeat teen steals the family’s secret martial arts technique to use at a well-renowned underground dojo. Seeking respect amongst peers, he learns quickly that there’s more to being a man than throwing hands.
Nervous about introducing her first girlfriend to her family, Allie gets help from the spirit of a long-lost relative during the Hungry Ghost Festival.
A brilliant child scientist must join forces with her sister when a cloning experiment goes awry.
After being sent to stay with their grandfather, a Northern Cheyenne teen discovers a connection to their family and community in a way they never thought possible.
The first season of “Launchpad” is also available to stream on Disney+.
