Disney+ and Walt Disney Animation Studios present two new Original Series this month: Season 2 of “Short Circuit Experimental Films” launches on August 4th, and the all-new, hand-drawn “Disney Presents Goofy in How to Stay at Home” trio of shorts on August 11th.
Short Circuit, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ innovative and experimental short film program where anyone at the Studio can pitch an idea and potentially be selected to create their own short, marks the fifth anniversary of the program’s inception with the debut of five new shorts exclusively on Disney+. This new selection of short films by a group of filmmakers hailing from various departments throughout Disney Animation explores five unique visual and storytelling styles.
Goofy’s back in “Disney Presents Goofy in How to Stay at Home,” a trio of all-new, hand-drawn animated shorts from Walt Disney Animation Studios. In these new shorts from acclaimed master animator/director Eric Goldberg (“Aladdin,” “Pocahontas,” “Fantasia/2000,” “Moana”) and Emmy-winning producer Dorothy McKim (“Meet the Robinsons,” “Prep & Landing,” “Get a Horse!”), Goofy – the clumsy, charismatic and lovable Disney “everyman” character who has entertained audiences since his screen debut in 1932 – demonstrates how to make the best of challenging situations. Bill Farmer, the voice of Goofy since 1987, provides the familiar vocals for the character, and versatile actor, Corey Burton, is heard as the narrator.
