Pixar Animation Studios is ready to take us to infinity and beyond when Disney+ launches in the U.S. on November 12, 2019. For the first time ever, subscribers will have unfettered access to their favorite Disney and Pixar titles, all in one place, including the recent record-breaking box office smash Toy Story 4. As previously announced, Disney+ will offer ad-free programming and add original feature-length films, documentaries, live-action and animated series, and short-form content to its library. Here’s a glimpse of the new content Pixar has created for Disney+ subscribers:
Forky Asks a Question
Forky (voice of Tony Hale), a crafts project created from trash in Toy Story 4, has important questions about how the world works, such as: What is love? What is time? What is cheese?” Watch him explore these mysteries and more in a series of 10 shorts.
This all-new animated short film centers on Bo Peep (voice of Annie Potts) and finally answers the questions regarding why she was M.I.A. during the events of Toy Story 3.
Monsters at Work (Year One)
The animated series from Disney Television Animation picks up six months after the events of Pixar’s Monsters, Inc., and follows Tylor Tuskmon, an eager and talented mechanic who works on the Monsters Inc. facilities team but dreams of working his way up to the Laugh Floor. Returning cast members Billy Crystal, John Goodman, John Ratzenberger, Bob Peterson, and Jennifer Tilly join new cast members Ben Feldman, Kelly Marie Tran, Henry Winkler, Lucas Neff, Alanna Ubach, and Stephen Stanton.
SparkShorts (Available at Launch)
Disney+ will be the exclusive home of SparkShorts, the Pixar Animation Studios short film series spotlighting new voices and exploring new storytelling techniques. Preview three of the titles—Purl, Smash and Grab, and Kitbull—before the entire series debuts.
Disney+ will also serve as the exclusive streaming home of The Walt Disney Studios’ blockbuster hits, including next year’s highly anticipated original movies Onward and Soul. Other beloved Pixar titles available at launch include A Bug’s Life, Bao, Cars, Finding Dory, Finding Nemo, Inside Out, Monsters University, Pixar Short Films Collection Vol. 1, Ratatouille, The Good Dinosaur, Toy Story, Up, Wall-E, and more!
