Product Description

Disney and Pixar present an incredible new collection of 12 short films, featuring multiple Academy Award(R) nominees (Best Short Film, Animated: "Presto," 2008; "Day & Night," 2010; "La Luna," 2011) and a host of family favorites. Join the celebration of imagination with this must-own collection, packed with unforgettable animation, fantastic stories and captivating characters. Plus, enjoy all-new extras that share how Pixar's storied talent got their start -- including student films from acclaimed directors John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton and Pete Docter!

The artists at the Pixar Studio used their early short films the way Walt Disney's artists used the "Silly Symphonies": to explore the medium of animation and to hone their skills in preparation for their first features, Toy Story and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, respectively. Today, Pixar is the most successful animation studio in the world and they continue to test ideas, techniques, technologies, and artists in short films. "Day & Night," Teddy Newton's clever study of two characters who look alike but act differently, and "Presto," Doug Sweetland's slapstick duel between a fussy magician and his recalcitrant rabbit, recall the great Warner Bros. and MGM cartoons of the '40s and '50s. In contrast, a gentle nostalgia pervades Enrico Casarosa's charming "La Luna," the story of a small boy finding his own way of performing a magical job. All three films earned Oscar nominations. Other shorts bring back characters the artists still enjoy animating: Remy from Ratatouille, Dug from Up, Mater from Cars, and the whole Toy Story gang. The tone and the look of the films vary widely, but they all exhibit a palpable delight in the art of animation and a desire to push the medium in new directions. The bonus features include student films by Oscar-winning directors John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, and Pete Docter. It's fun to look for the roots of the great Pixar films in these early works: the turquoise and purple monster in Stanton's "A Story" looks a bit like Sully in Monsters, Inc.; the little boy's room in Lasseter's "Nitemare" anticipates Andy's room in Toy Story. This delightful collection is an all-too-rare family entertainment that an entire family can actually enjoy together. (Rated G: cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

This is the second collection of Pixar Shorts, but the first one that I've seen. I have to admit that I loved the Toy Story films and "UP" was one of my favorites but I've missed "Cars" and it's sequel and the others.

The Bluray at hand contains a dozen shorts, clocking in at 75 minutes. Each can be played with, or without, the Directors' commentaries. (So you get about 2 ½ hours of entertainment in the base package). The other bonus is really neat. It's a selection of seven "Student Films" from the three top Pixar directors: John Lassiter, Andrew Stanton and Pete Doctor. These were made in the late 1980s and each one (they run about six minutes each) is introduced by the Director. Some are just animated line drawings with sound while others are more fully realized and were shown in the Mike and Ike Animation festival. All were new to me and I found them fascinating and fun.

As to the "core dozen", there are both what I'll call "funny" and "serious" shorts and not all use the CGI method of animation. Two are offshoots of the film "UP". The first features Dug, the dog. It's okay. The other "George & AJ" shows that the senior, Carl (Ed Asner) in "Up" was not the only one who wanted to escape the retirement home. I liked that one.

There are two offshoots of "Cars" with the hayseed pickup, Mater, telling "tall tales". Clever.

"Toy Story" has two offshoots too and they are a hoot! "Hawaiian Vacation" does a real job on Barbie and Ken (especially Ken) as they try to leave the toy chest for Hawaii. The other "Small Fry" takes digs at Fast Food "meal deal prizes". Wonder where all those outdated toys from movie tie-ins that failed go? You (and Buzz Lightyear) will find out here.

If you like Pixar Shorts and want to watch them all in one place without popping discs in and out this is a great deal.

However, there are two ways this falls short of the first volume:
1) The first volume had some Pixar stuff that had never been collected along with specials/shorts from the various title discs. Everything on this disc is found elsewhere.
2) The first volume had a "Play All" option which was great for just popping the disc in and watching. This volume doesn't seem to have that feature - which means you have to keep selecting the next short to watch. My kids love watching these and I frequently popped the first disc in while working in the kitchen or on a drive to occupy them - and now this is no longer an option for the second volume.

With very few exceptions, the content on this disc can be found on the full-length PIXAR Blu-rays, so if you already have those, think carefully before buying.

Also, (as mentioned by others), what genius forgot to program a "Play All" feature on a disc with a bunch of 5 minute films??

By now, everybody knows about the significant influence that the Pixar Animation Studios has had on the Disney Studios. Their "Toy Story" and "Cars" series, as well as "Finding Nemo," "Wall-E," "The Incredibles," and others have been commercial and critical successes, and that is good for all parties involved, including us, the consumers. But, once in a while, when we buy a Pixar/Disney film, the bonus section usually features a Pixar Short, one that doesn't make it to the big screen. So it was a great idea to put all those shorts together and present them in one package, the result being the awesome "Pixar Short Films Collection," and like Volume one, this Second Volume is as just as fabulous.

"Pixar Short Films Collection 2" includes twelve shorts with different kinds of animation, and many of them feature some of Pixar films' memorable characters. However, I have to say that my favorites were "Your Friend the Rat," in which Remy and Emile (from Ratatouille) tell us about the positive roles of rats in history; "Presto," perhaps the funniest one, where a magician's starving rabbit sabotages his act, because the magician doesn't feed him; "Partly Cloudy," in which a baby-delivering crane gets assigned to deliver the most ferocious babies (porcupines, sharks), and the poor guy can't take it anymore; "Halloween Special Vacation," featuring our friends from "Toy Story;" "Time Travel Mater," showcasing Mater, from "Cars;" and "La Luna," in which a boy, his father and grandfather do maintenance work in the moon - perhaps the most touching of all.

This fantastic collection of short films is a most for any animation fan. For that matter, it is like buying a whole film, due to its running time.

Anyone who has seen Pixar shorts, knows how wonderful they are. The content on this disc is no exception. But this is a product review, so the value of the product as well as the film itself should be taken into account.

Considering this product is the price of a feature film release, and that there are 40 mins of content here, and 50+ mins of content on volume 1, I don't see the value here. It would be better if all shorts up until now were contained on one set, and with a greater amount of special features. (These special features do exist, but unfortunately you have to buy all of Pixar's feature films, along with their shorts, to get them all). I wouldn't be as critical, but Disney is notorious for releasing something, then re-releasing it, followed by a re-re-release a year later.
