PIXAR SHORT FILMS COLLECTION: VOLUME 3 HOME VIDEO RELEASE!
Pixar has released Volume 3 Short Films Collection in time for Christmas and it’s glorious. All the adorable short films we’ve seen throughout the years are now in one place! Pixar Shorts are filled with love and life lessons. Did you know Pixar Short Films are a way of future animators to tell their stories. I’m excited to share Disney•Pixar’s latest collection of delightful and inspiring animated stories – Pixar Shorts: Volume 3.
Pixar Shorts: Volume 3 features thirteen Pixar shorts, together for the first time, with beloved and unforgettable characters, insightful bonus extras every Pixar fan must see, and cutting-edge animation from the creative minds that brought us our favorite animated films!
Bao made its debut with the theatrical release of Incredibles 2 (2018). This short film from Pixar Animation Studios and director Domee Shi explores the ups and downs of the parent-child relationship through the colorful, rich, and tasty lens of the Chinese immigrant community in Canada. I cried ugly tears watching this one, my kiddo was a little freaked afterwards when I said, "I'm hungry." LOL
Lava stole our hearts during the theatrical release of Inside Out (2015). With the beauty of tropical islands and the allure of ocean volcanoes, a tropical love story evolves over millions of years.
When a toy stealing bully ruins recess for a playground full of kids, only one thing stands in his way: the “Lost and Found” box. "Lou" directed by Dave Mullins and produced by Dana Murray.
Riley’s First Date?
Riley’s First Date? came as bonus material for the in-home release of Inside Out (2015). In Riley’s First Date?, Riley is now 12 years old and she’s is hanging out with her parents at home when potential trouble comes knocking. Mom’s and Dad’s Emotions find themselves forced to deal with Riley going on her first date. I can totally relate, though first dates don’t happen until age 16 in the Fernández household.
Sanjay’s Super Team
Sanjay’s Super Team is the short that came with the theatrical release of The Good Dinosaur(2015). In Sanjay’s Super Team, Sanjay Patel uses his own experience to tell the story of a young, first-generation Indian-American boy whose love for western pop culture comes into conflict with his father’s traditions. Sanjay’s Super Team was nominated for an Oscar® in 2015!
Partysaurus Rex was brought to us by the theatrical release of Finding Nemo 3D (2012). Poor Rex. Buzz, Woody and the rest of the Toy Story gang think he is a just a wet blanket. But when Bonnie takes Rex to bath time, he goes from a party pooper to king of the hot tub! Creating a bubble bash like no other, everyone’s raving about the Partysaurus Rex!
Party Central debuted with the theatrical release of Muppets Most Wanted (2013) – one of my family’s favorite movies of all times! Mike and Sulley return to Monsters University for a fun-filled weekend with their Oozma Kappa fraternity brothers. The gang is throwing their first party, but, sadly, no one’s showing up. Mike and Sulley come with a plan to make sure “Party Central” is the most epic party the school has ever seen.
Piper was brought to us with the theatrical release of Finding Dory in 2016. That same year, it won the Oscar® for Best Animated Short! “Piper” tells the story of a hungry sandpiper hatchling who ventures from her nest for the first time to dig for food by the shoreline, which is buried beneath the sand where scary waves roll up onto the shore.
Radiator Springs 500 ½
Radiator Springs 500 ½ is an episode from Tales from Radiator Springs series (2014). A leisurely drive turns precarious as Baja racers descend on the town and challenge Lightning McQueen to an off-road race.
Legend of Mor’du
Legend of Mor’du came as part of the in-home release of Brave (2012). The backstory of the monstrous bear Mor’du is revealed in striking fashion in this impressionistic look into mythology from the world of Brave.
The Blue Umbrella
The Blue Umbrella first delighted us in the theatrical release of Monsters University (2013). During a rainy day in a musical city, two different-colored umbrellas meet and fall eternally in love.
