During the Walt Disney Studios showcase panel at the D23 Expo, directors Carrie Hobson and Michael Yates provided a closer look at Pixar’s first-ever long-form series and what inspired it.
“Win or Lose” follows the Pickles, a co-ed middle school softball team, in the week leading up to their championship game. Each episode takes place that same week, highlighting the perspective of a different main character—players, their parents, the umpire—each reflected in a unique visual style.
Hobson and Yates revealed that Will Forte will voice Coach Dan in the series, and shared a shout-out Forte recorded for the occasion, followed by a special clip just for fans in attendance.
“Win or Lose” streams on Disney+ in Fall 2023.
