Disney has revealed a short trailer for their latest animated short film, Inner Workings, which is playing in front of Moana - the Disney Animation musical in theaters this week. This film is the directorial debut of a story artist at Disney named Leo Matsuda, and it's an amusing and thoughtful look at life. Similar to Pixar's Inside Out, it turns various internal organs into characters that control a person. The short also plays with this wonderful idea that there's more to life than doing the same mundane work as everyone else, and that we need to let loose and trust our heart. This is one of the better shorts that Disney has made recently. Moana is worth seeing anyway, so head to your local theater and watch two great films for the price of one.
Here's the official trailer for Leonardo Matsuda's short film Inner Workings, direct from YouTube:
Description: A new short from first-time director Leo Matsuda (story artist for Big Hero 6, Wreck-It Ralph) is the story of the internal struggle between a man's pragmatic, logical side and his free-spirited, adventurous half. Created by a small team at Walt Disney Animation Studios in a unique, fast-paced style that blends CG and traditional hand-drawn animation, the short explores the importance of finding balance in daily life. Inner Workings is both written and directed by artist/animator Leonardo Matsuda working at Disney Animation. The short film plays in front of Disney's Moana, opening in theaters starting this week - November 23rd. Catch the full short on the big screen for now. To see more shorts, click here.
