Disney has announced that Pixar’s latest short, “Carl’s Date,” will finally be coming to Disney+ on Wednesday, 13th September 2023, to go along with the release of “Elemental” on the same day. The short was previously announced to be coming to Disney+ for Valentine’s Day in February, but Disney decided to hold off releasing the short on Disney+ and released it in front of “Elemental” in cinemas and as a bonus feature on the movie’s recent digital release.
The new short, Carl’s Date, catches up with Carl Fredricksen (voiced by Ed Asner) and his lovable talking dog, Dug (voiced by Bob Peterson), who was introduced in Pixar’s Oscar-winning feature, “Up”. Written and directed by Emmy Award winner Peterson and produced by Kim Collins, Carl’s Date finds Carl reluctantly agreeing to go on a date with a lady friend—but admittedly with no idea how dating works these days. Ever the helpful friend, Dug steps in to calm Carl’s pre-date jitters and offer some tried-and-true tips for making friends—if you’re a dog.
The other “Dug Days” shorts are also available to stream on Disney+ now, along with the original classic film, “Up”.
