Disney Plus will launch with some Pixar shorts

Get ready for some heartwarming animation.


Purl is among the Pixar shorts coming to Disney Plus.


Disney Plus will tug at your heartstrings with six Pixar shorts when it launches Nov. 12. The streaming service revealed them in a Twitter thread Wednesday, similar to its unveiling earlier this month of its massive library of old movies.

The shorts all have pretty simple titles: Purl, Smash and Grab, Kitbull, Float, Wind and Loop. They're part of Disney Pixar SparkShorts, an experimental initiative designed to let Pixar employees tell personal stories.

If you're eager for a dose of Pixar, Purl, Smash and Grab and Kitbull were released online earlier this year to promote Disney Plus. Those three and Float will arrive with the service Nov. 12, Wind will be available in December and Loop will be available in January.

And in case that's still not enough Pixar, on Wednesday we also got a trailer for Pixar IRL -- a real-life prank show featuring the animation studio's characters -- and Forky Asks A Question, which will see the Toy Story 4 character querying his fellow toys about life's deepest mysteries.
