‘Launchpad’ Featurette: The Disney+ Collection of Short Films Wants You to “Embrace Yourself”

Launchpad, a new Disney+ series of live-action short films that have nothing to do with the character from DuckTales, has released a new featurette ahead of its premiere. The goal of the series is “to diversify the types of stories that are being told and to give access to those who have historically not had it” based around the theme “Discover.” It’s a neat idea, and if Disney+ sticks with this – as they plan to – it could really open doors for budding filmmakers. Watch the featurette, which is titled “Embrace Yourself,” below.

Launchpad Featurette

I really like the idea of Launchpad, which opens the door for a new generation of filmmakers. I just wish Disney had thought of a different name, because every single time I see the words “Disney” and “Launchpad” together, I think of Launchpad McQuack from DuckTales and Darkwing Duck. I admit this is more my problem than Disney’s, because it’s almost as if my brain refuses to work this out.

This featurette goes behind-the-scenes of the first season of Launchpad, which will consist of six short films based on the theme “Discover.” That sounds broad enough that you can do a whole lot of things with it, which I suppose is the point. Disney+ is also already looking ahead to season 2, which is based around the theme of “Connection” and includes a writer’s track. Disney+ will be accepting submissions for that season beginning today through June 11 right here.

Here’s a breakdown of the season 1 films/episodes:
