Disney Studios Short Films Collection Review {In Kids’ Words}

One of our family’s most anticipated Disney DVDs releases today! That’s right, you can now buy the Walt Disney Animated Short Films Collection. You know – those short films that appear before the main event of your favorite Disney animated feature? I’m not lying when those are LITERALLY what I most look forward to when a new Disney film comes out.

From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes an extraordinary new collection of award-winning and beloved short films featuring Disney’s Frozen Fever, starring Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Sven and Kristoff, and the Oscar®-nominated Lorenzo (Best Animated Short, 2004).

My absolute favorite is Paperman, but there are SO many great shorts on this DVD, including Frozen Fever. My only complaint is that Lava wasn’t included, the short that appeared before Inside Out.

The Short Films Collection includes contemporary shorts starring classic characters, such as the groundbreaking 2013 Mickey Mouse cartoon, Get A Horse! And the holiday treat Prep & Landing: Operation: Secret Santa, as well as celebrated Oscar winners Paperman (2012) and Feast (2014). Enjoy them together for the first time in this must-own collection with all-new extras including an inside look at the Disney Animation shorts, featuring introductions and interviews with the acclaimed filmmakers themselves.

Here are the Disney Shorts included on the DVD (and filmmakers appearing in each Shorts Introduction), along with my kids’ reviews:
