Disney has released a trailer for the upcoming second season of “Short Circuit”, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ innovative and experimental short film program where anyone at the Studio can pitch an idea and potentially be selected to create their own short. These five new shorts are exclusively available on Disney+.
This new selection of short films by a group of filmmakers hailing from various departments throughout Disney Animation explores five unique visual and storytelling styles. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Short Circuit Experimental Films” streams August 4 on Disney+.
Check out the trailer below:
The five new shorts include:
Battling evil is all in a day’s work for Dinosaur Barbarian, but what about taking out the trash? Sometimes even a superhero needs to clean up his act.
Directed by Kim Hazel (animator, Big Hero 6, Zootopia, Ralph Breaks the Internet, Frozen II, Raya and the Last Dragon, Encanto and Baymax!)
A story about growing up and the meaning of home in which a young adult repeatedly visits his hometown, but with every new arrival he starts to face the inevitable: change.

A law-abiding citizen must find his inner strength to cross the street at a light that won’t change.

Songs to Sing in the Dark
Two creatures living in the depths of a dark cave engage in a battle of acoustic one-upmanship. As things escalate, they come to realize that they are stronger together.

No. 2 to Kettering
