David Lally, Sparkshorts’ Production Supervisor, has revealed that ‘Float’ is due for a November release on Disney’s new streaming platform, ‘Disney+’.


Suddenly, a full-length, Filipino-led Disney flick doesn’t sound too far-fetched anymore.

Filipino artist Bobby Rubio revealed on Twitter that he will be acting as the writer/director of an upcoming Pixar short film titled ‘Float’, which will feature two Filipino-American leads.


Bobby has previously worked on notable animated flicks such as ‘Tarzan’, ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ and ‘Up.’

‘Float’ is a part of the Pixar SparkShorts program, a new experimental story-telling initiative that ‘welcomes new creative voices at Pixar to share their stories.’

The flicks are expected to drop on YouTube in February.
