With Disney+ launching in less than one week, Daily Brief is recounting the streamer’s massive content library, spanning new and legacy titles from Disney, Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar.
For the latter, the streamer is tapping into the recent success of Toy Story 4—which garnered over $1 billion—with a new animated Pixar series, Forky Asks a Question.
In the 10-episode educational series, the quirky, handmade character ponders important questions about the world, such as the origins of love, time and cheese.
Meanwhile, viewers can watch their favorite characters come to life in Pixar IRL. The series, also available at launch, shows how people in normal situations react when Pixar characters, like Wall-E and The Incredibles’ Dash, begin appearing in our world.
On the other hand, Pixar is expanding its beloved animation with SparkShorts, a series of shorts derived from the animation studio’s new program. Announced in January, the program allowed budding animators to share their new, creative stories with the world.
Three of the shorts, Purl, Smash and Grab and Kitbull were showcased earlier this year at El Capitan Theatre. Disney+ will introduce an additional three at launch.
Unlike its Marvel and Star Wars sectors, most of Pixar’s beloved films will be available to stream on Nov. 12. Up, Coco, Incredibles 2, and Toy Story 4 are the only titles missing from the list at launch; however, they will appear on the platform within the first year.
Pixar’s roster will also include the forthcoming film, Onward, which is produced in part by Disney.
