Pixar has been hitting home runs lately, but not where you’d think! Recently they’ve been releasing a set of short films that focus on the facts of life that aren’t normally focused on in Animation. A year ago they released a short animated film about a boy who gets a new, disabled, dog and it’s not discovered until the end that the boy is also an amputee.
This week they’ve done it again; Pixar released ‘In A Heartbeat‘ a very heartfelt video of a young boy coming to terms with his sexuality and coming out to his crush in the most adorable way! The project – started with Kickstarter campaign aiming to raise £2,230 ($3,000) which actually raised over £10,000 ($14,000) – first caught traction in April when a short tweet about the clip went viral with over 100,000 ‘likes’.
We’re not crying, you’re crying!!! Needless to say, the film was met with PRAISE from the online community!
