We’re almost to the premiere of the new series of shorts on Disney+, Pixar Popcorn! And the best part is, now we know that ALL of the episodes will be available for streaming as of this Friday, January 22!
The trailer for the series was shared across social media today:
Since my focus is on Toy Story, I won’t get into all the different episodes – although they all look fun, and I’m excited to be able to revisit lots of familiar characters.
Of the two Toy Story episodes, I’m looking forward to “To Fitness and Beyond” the most, because I’m always happiest when we get to catch up with the gang in Bonnie’s room again. What makes it even better, is that my girl Jessie is included this time! I’m fully aware that this may very well be all that we see of her, but at least she wasn’t completely left out:
I do love Buzz, though, and he looks like he’s going to be just great in this.
The second Toy Story themed short is “Fluffy Stuff with Ducky & Bunny.” The new characters from Toy Story 4 aren’t so much my favorites as the classic toys, but of course I’ll be watching this one as well. Bo’s sheep – Billy, Goat, and Gruff – make an appearance, and they’re clearly at a carnival, so it’ll be interesting to see if any of the other lost toys show up.
I’m really glad that the entire series is being released at once this time, versus the weekly episodes of Forky Asks a Question. The anticipation was fun back then, but this time around, we all need things to watch that can lift our spirits, and I’ll be watching all of these on Friday!
