Disney’s shorts program is enjoying a resurgence in recent years, highlighted by Paperman, which won an Academy Award for Walt Disney Animation Studios. After John Lasseter took over as Chief Creative Officer of the Disney studio in 2007, he encouraged the creative talent there to produce short films to go along with their features, much like its sister studio Pixar. The next short, which has been playing at festivals around the world before it premieres alongside the feature film Big Hero 6, is Feast. Take a look at the dog, whose eyes we will see the story through, after the break!
The story is told through the perspective of Winston, a Boston terrier who sees his meals evolve through the years. As his owner falls in love, the meals change, representing the relationship changes that occur. It is clear from the design of the character that audiences will fall in love with Winston, a first look at which was debuted at USA Today. We also get a better look at the gorgeous animation style that the studio is employing for the short, which seems to be similar to what we saw with Paperman.
Feast premieres in theaters with Big Hero 6 on November 7th!
