Fun New Trailer for Disney+'s SHORT CIRCUIT Experimental Films Season 2
Disney+ has released a new trailer for the second season of their series Short Circuit, which releases short experimental films that dare to dream, and explore the human condition. Season 1 of this film series was exceptional, and I can’t wait to check out the films in this season, which includes the following titles:
Kim Hazel‘s short is exactly what it sounds like: the life and times of a dinosaur barbarian. Except, instead of focusing on his wild adventures, the short will see the barbarian domesticated as he figures out how personal hygiene works. Hazel’s previous credits include Zootopia and Frozen II.
Director Jacob Frey has been with Disney for many years now, with his prior credits including Zootopia and Moana. With this short, he explores the idea of growing up and the bittersweet feeling of returning home only to find that things have continued to change without you.
Director Ryan Green has worked on many Disney features over the years, including Moana, Frozen II, and the upcoming film Encanto. His short follows a law-abiding citizen faced with the vicious crosswalk, continuously denying him the opportunity to make it across the street. Determined, if anxious, he is pushed to find his inner strength and get himself across that street.
Songs to Sing in the Dark
This short is an exploration of sound and size, delving into the depths of a cave to meet creatures battling for dominance, Songs to Sing in the Dark comes from director Riannon Delanoy, whose previous credits include Big Hero 6, Frozen, and Frozen II.
No. 2 to Kettering
Director Liza Rhea experiments with color in this short, which follows a young girl, desperately trying to liven up her dreary morning commute. Rhea most recently worked on Disney’s 2021 release, Raya and the Last Dragon.
There’s also a new Goofy short headed to Disney+ on August 11th titled How To Stay Home, from animator Eric Goldberg that was inspired by the pandemic.
Check out the trailer below, and watch Short Circuit season 2 this week, August 4, on Disney+.
