While Disney Animation short films haven’t quite sparked the same excitement as anything coming out of Pixar in recent years, that’s changing. 2012’s lovely, Oscar-winning “Paperman” was original, visually accomplished, and just a great piece of filmmaking. Now two people from the team behind that film—head of animation Patrick Osborne and producer Kristina Reed—are hoping for more magic with “Feast.” And the first teaser is here.
And it’s cute stuff, following a puppy who enjoys eating no shortage of junk food—french fries, nachos, pizza, and more—who winds up on a big adventure. Here’s the official synopsis:
“Feast,” a new short from first-time director Patrick Osborne (head of animation for “Paperman”) and Walt Disney Animation Studios, is the story of one man’s love life as seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.
“Feast” will play in front of “Big Hero 6” when it opens on November 7th.
