SparkShorts is a series of animated short films produced by Pixar filmmakers and artists. The films are independent shorts launched as an experimental storytelling initiative that gives employees of varying backgrounds the studio's resources and funding to explore their ideas, experiment, and develop a low-budget project of their own within six months. The first episode, Purl, premiered at Siggrph 2018.[1] The first three episodes of SparkShorts were released on YouTube. The rest of the SparkShorts, along with the first three that were already released, were all released on Disney+ original programming on November 12, 2019.[2]
