Pixar IRL (or, “in real life”) is a short-form series that will bring the beloved characters of Pixar to reality in the real world. If you’re picturing live-action remakes, you’d be mistaken.

Forky Asks a Question is a collection of 10 shorts starring Forky from Toy Story 4. Still relatively new to… well… everything, Forky has a lot of queries about the world. These shorts will explore the things he wants to learn more about. From the trailer, below, we even get a peek at Peas In A Pod, a trio of characters from Toy Story 3 who were absent in Toy Story 4.
SparkShorts is a series of artist-driven projects designed to give new storytellers opportunities to explore narratives, themes, and animation techniques. The first of these debuted on YouTube earlier this year. Three of these new SparkShorts coming to Disney+ have already been accompanying screenings of Disney films the past few weeks at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.
Disney+ will also include the classic Pixar feature films you know and love. Along with, you know, a lot of other stuff, too.
