Disney fans who head out to theaters to see Raya and the Last Dragon will also be treated to a brand new theatrical short titled Us Again.
On Monday (February 15), Walt Disney Studios announced the upcoming release of Us Again— the studio’s first all new theatrical animated short in five years.
The upcoming short is directed by Zach Parrish, who is no stranger to Walt Disney Animated studios. Parrish previously worked as the head of animation on Big Hero 6, in addition to spearheading the Short Circuit film, Puddles.
For Us Again, Parrish teamed up with award winning choreographers and dancers Keonean d Mari, as well as Captain Marvel composer Pinar Toprak, who created a score reminiscent of 60s funk and soul.
Set in a vibrant city pulsating with rhythm and movement, Us Again centers on an elderly man and his young-at-heart wife who set about to rekindle their youthful passion for life on one magical night. Together, the pair reminisce while they dance across the cityscape, recalling memories and feelings from their youth.
Disney fans who head out to theaters to see Raya and the Last Dragon on March 5 can look forward to catching Us Again on the big screen just before the feature film starts.
Those who can’t make it out to theaters for Raya and the Last Dragon will be able to catch Us Again when it debuts via Disney+ in June.
