Watch: Pixar's SparkShorts Film 'Smash and Grab' About Two Robots

Smash and Grab Short Film

Yes!! Pixar made a short film about robots?! Awesome. The latest SparkShorts film from Pixar Animation Studios is titled Smash and Grab, and it's available online for viewing for free now. Just last week they launched the first short online - Purl directed by Kristen Lester - and they've followed it up with this one being released next. From director Brian Larsen, Smash and Grab is a tale of two robots. After years of toiling away inside the engine room of a towering locomotive, two antiquated robots will risk everything for freedom and for each other. This definitely feels like it fits right into the Wall-E universe, and the sound design is especially amazing and a key part of the characters. I am totally loving these SparkShorts, they're superbly entertaining and unique and clever. I hope they keep this program going for a while. Watch below.

Watch: Pixar's First SparkShorts Film 'Purl' Directed by Kristen Lester

Purl Short Film

"Let's bring finance in and knit our strategies together." Pixar has debuted the first charming, provocative short film as part of their new SparkShorts program online today - for free for everyone to watch. And it's worth a watch, for sure! The short is titled Purl, and it's about a pink ball of yarn that gets hired at a startup. From Pixar: "An earnest ball of yarn named Purl gets a job at a fast-paced, high energy, male centric start-up. Things start to unravel as she tries to fit in with this close knit group. Purl must ask herself how far is she willing to go to get the acceptance she yearns for and in the end is it worth it?" Directed by Kristen Lester, and featuring the voice of Bret 'Brook' Parker as Purl. It's a fantastic little short about workplace discrimination and giving people a chance beyond their appearances. I really, really like that Pixar is making these shorts and releasing them online right away. See the full short below + a making of featurette. Enjoy.

Funny Super Bowl Spot for Pixar's 'Toy Story 4' Turns Buzz Into a Prize

Toy Story 4 Trailer

"If you think you can take our Top Prize spot – you're wrong!" "Dead wrong!" Disney has debuted a new 30-second TV spot for Pixar's next sequel Toy Story 4, arriving in theaters everywhere this June. This spot features Ducky & Bunny, voiced by Keegan Michael-Key & Jordan Peele, who mock Buzz after he gets tied up on the board as a prize for a carnival game. The other hint from this teaser is that the story might take place at some carnival in the mountains, and there's an "Antiques" museum visible in the background. But there's nothing else revealed in this besides that tidbit. All the other regular voices are back again: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Kristen Schaal, and Bonnie Hunt. I'm still looking forward to this, of course (it's Pixar!), I just hope we get a full trailer sometime soon. For now - enjoy this 30-second tease.

Another Fun Teaser for Pixar's 'Toy Story 4' Introduces Ducky & Bunny

Toy Story 4 Teaser

"They did make three movies, this is number four!" Disney has revealed a fun follow-up to their first teaser trailer for Pixar's next sequel Toy Story 4, arriving in theaters in June next summer. This "teaser trailer reaction" introduces us to Ducky & Bunny, voiced by Keegan Michael-Key & Jordan Peele, who provide us with some amusing commentary on our introduction to Forky. This teaser also includes a few Easter Eggs hidden in the background, like the guitar from Coco and more. I despise trailer reaction videos, but this one is a good mockery and in-world which makes it all the better. All the other regular voices are back: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Kristen Schaal, and Bonnie Hunt. This is a fun and playful way to get us back into the Toy Story mood, especially considering there is so much negativity about Forky already.

First Teaser Trailer for Pixar's 'Toy Story 4' Introduces Us All to Forky

Toy Story 4 Trailer

"I'm not a toy!!" Disney has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Pixar's next sequel Toy Story 4, arriving in theaters in June next summer. This continuation of the beloved Toy Story series, which has been solid even two sequels in so far, introduces us to another new "toy" that will cause problems with the old friends. This little guy is called "Forky" - voiced by Tony Hale - and he's a spork craft project gone awry. With a while until release, this teaser is just a tiny bit of footage - more of an introduction. And it's quite something. Other headlines about this are great: "One of These Toys Is Not Like the Others". Ha, yep. All the voices are back: Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack, Kristen Schaal, and Bonnie Hunt. I like this so far, but I'm not really sure where they're going to take the story. This must just be the beginning. Have a look below.

Another New TV Trailer for Pixar's 'Incredibles 2' Has More Jack-Jack

Incredibles 2 Trailer

"So things haven't spiraled out of control the moment I left?" Disney has debuted another new 60-second "sneak peek" TV trailer for Pixar's Incredibles 2, and it contains a few more scenes of unseen footage. We keep seeing more and more in extra trailers, and the more footage we see, the more excited I get. I have a good feeling this might just be amazing, and we barely have any real sense of the plot because Pixar usually likes to keep it all a big secret (especially whatever happens in the second half). Craig T. Nelson is back to voice Bob, with Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sarah Vowell. At this point, I'm ready to just watch this movie and find out what is going on here before any more of it is revealed in more TV spots and trailers. This new footage is also an announcement that tickets are on sale now for the June opening. Enjoy.

Full Theatrical Trailer for Pixar's Superhero Sequel 'The Incredibles 2'

The Incredibles 2 Trailer

"Suit up, it might get weird." Disney-Pixar have debuted the full theatrical trailer for Brad Bird's superhero sequel The Incredibles 2, which we've been waiting a long time to finally see. And boy does it look like it will be worth the wait. Bird directs once again, and the synopsis only states that it's about Bob navigating "the day-to-day heroics of 'normal' life", allowing him time to bond with Jack-Jack, "whose superpowers are emerging—much to Dad's surprise." Craig T. Nelson is back to voice Bob, with Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sarah Vowell. Most of the story is still a surprise - though this trailer gives us a better look at where the story is going with a new villain revealed at the end. This looks like SO much fun, I really can't wait, I'm glad they're bringing it back with Brad Bird. I've got very high hopes for this, even more now.

The Parrs are Back in New Teaser Trailer for Pixar's 'The Incredibles 2'

The Incredibles 2 Trailer

"Help me bring Supers back into the sunlight!" Disney-Pixar have released another teaser trailer for Brad Bird's superhero sequel The Incredibles 2, which we've been waiting a long time to see. This teaser was debuted during the Olympics, along with a promo clip that integrated a few Olympics sports. The first teaser didn't show much but this one actually has footage and gives us a nice introduction to the story. Brad Bird directs once again, and the plot synopsis only states that it's about Bob navigating "the day-to-day heroics of 'normal' life", allowing him time to bond with Jack-Jack, "whose superpowers are emerging—much to Dad's surprise." Craig T. Nelson is back to voice Bob, with Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sarah Vowell. There isn't a lot here, but honestly I'm loving what we do get, feels like an authentic continuation.

First Teaser Trailer for Pixar's Long-Awaited Sequel 'The Incredibles 2'

The Incredibles 2 Teaser Trailer

"You have powers!" Disney has released the very first teaser trailer for Pixar's The Incredibles 2, or now titled simply Incredibles 2 (drop the "the"). This teaser isn't that much, but it is officially something, since we've all been (im)patiently waiting 13 years for them to make this sequel. Brad Bird directs once again, and the plot synopsis released by Disney only states that it's about Bob navigating "the day-to-day heroics of 'normal' life", allowing him time to bond with Jack-Jack, "whose superpowers are emerging—much to Dad's surprise." Which is pretty much what this trailer shows. Craig T. Nelson is back as the voice of Bob, with Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sarah Vowell. I'm excited to see some actual footage and find out what this sequel is going to really be about, because I'm intrigued after waiting all these years already.

A World of Wonders Awaits You - One Final Trailer for Pixar's 'Coco'

Pixar's Coco Final Trailer

"I'm not like the rest of my family…" Disney-Pixar have revealed one final, official trailer for Pixar's Coco, the first musical and next animated movie from the beloved animation studio. The story involves a young boy named Miguel who gets lost in the world of the dead while searching for his great-great grandfather. This already opened in Mexico to rave reviews. The voices include newcomer Anthony Gonzalez playing Miguel, along with Benjamin Bratt, Gael Garcia Bernal, and Renee Victor. We've already seen three trailers previously, but this final one gives us a colorful look at the world that awaits us. I'm very excited to see this, I'm in need of another Pixar tearjerker. This looks charming and heartfelt, as expected from Pixar.

Charming Full-Length Trailer for Pixar's Day of the Dead Musical 'Coco'

Pixar's Coco Trailer

"None of them understand me… I'm supposed to play music!" Yay! Disney-Pixar have unveiled a full-length official trailer for Pixar's Coco, the first musical and next animated movie from the beloved animation studio. The story involves a young boy named Miguel who gets lost in the world of the dead while searching for his great-great grandfather. The voices include newcomer Anthony Gonzalez playing Miguel, along with Benjamin Bratt, Gael Garcia Bernal, and Renee Victor. This certainly looks like Pixar's most colorful movie yet, my goodness. We also finally get a glimpse of the dead world and all the various skeleton characters he meets. This looks like it's going to be fun and emotional and a very potent reminder of the love families have. Though we still haven't actually heard a real song from the movie yet, I'm totally sold anyway.

Final Trailer for Pixar's 'Cars 3' Pushes Lightning McQueen to the Limit

Cars 3 Final Trailer

"One new turn. One more dream. One last chance." Disney-Pixar has released one more full-length trailer for Pixar's sequel Cars 3, making this the fifth official trailer for this animated movie. They're really hoping it will be a hit? We know the story is about Lightning McQueen dealing with being beaten by younger, more high tech racers. He tries to make a comeback and pushes himself to the limit - even more than the last two times. Owen Wilson returns as McQueen, with a fun cast including Armie Hammer as Jackson Storm, Bonnie Hunt, Tony Shalhoub, Katherine Helmond, and Paul Dooley. As I keep saying, this might turn out better than expected, and hopefully it's not being ignored because it's another Cars movie. Maybe it's actually good? I'm very curious to see this and find out. No more trailers please, let's go watch the movie.
