Watch ‘Purl’ The New Animated Short From Pixar

Watch ‘Purl’ The New Animated Short From Pixar

Purl, directed by Kristen Lester and produced by Gillian Libbert-Duncan, features an earnest ball of yarn named Purl who gets a job in a fast-paced, high energy, bro-tastic start-up. Yarny hijinks ensue as she tries to fit in, but how far is she willing to go to get the acceptance she yearns for, and in the end, is it worth it?

Last year we shared the luxo ball yarn bomb, here’s the short film that goes with it!

Purl is the first film from Disney Pixar SparkShorts, an experimental initiative that gives Pixar employees a chance to tell personal stories their own way.

Read more about the initiative and hear more from the filmmakers via CNET and its feminist origins via ScreenRant. Source: YouTube

    Loved this! Only error I found was in the beginning Purl stated “crochet” but then referred to knitting needles. A bit of a pet peeve of mine. Otherwise I thought the message was great.
