Pixar Animators Have Created a Dark New Short That’s Definitely NOT for Kids
No one can deny the absolute perfection of Pixar movies. Toy Story 1, 2 and 3 are all the best reviewed films of all time, according to Rotten Tomatoes. And while the film studio is so iconic that we dress up as their characters for Halloween and bond over how much we love their now-classic plots, they haven’t really strayed away from kid-centered movies until now.
Pixar animators Lou Hamou-Lhadj and Andrew Coats created the short film Borrowed Time and tapped into all that is glorious about our fave Pixar films, but created a story just for grown ups. Borrowed Time is emotional, full of sadness and the joy of life all at once. It gives a glimpse in the life of a wild west Sheriff who is obviously struggling with his past. The results are pretty spectacular.
While only available on streaming site Vimeo for a very short time, Borrowed Time has all the components that we hope to see play out in a larger motion picture. While the animators Hamou-Lhadj and Coats created this on their own, maybe Pixar will pick this story up and create their first feature-length adult-centered film. We’d definitely go to the theater to see that on the big screen.
What do you think about the idea of Pixar making more adult-centered features? Tell us @BritandCo!
