Disney+ heeft de officiële trailer vrijgegeven voor hun nieuwste animatieserie getiteld Short Circuit, met een preview van de veertien korte films van Walt Disney Animation. Bekijk de trailer hieronder. Alle korte animaties van Short Circuit zijn nu beschikbaar.
Short Circuit is de experimentele korte filmcollectie van Disney Animation, gecreëerd door de filmmakers en artiesten van de studio. De serie is het resultaat van een experimenteel programma dat in 2016 is gestart met als doel risico’s te nemen in zowel visuele stijl als verhaal, en ook nieuwkomers een kans te geven om hun talenten te laten zien, terwijl ook wordt geëxperimenteerd met nieuwe technieken in het filmproces.
De veertien titels en synopsissen van de geanimeerde shorts zijn als volgt:
