Remember a while ago when we told you about Disney’s Launchpad, and how hyped we were about it? Well, we’re now a lot closer to it! Disney released a new trailer and we’re freaking out all over again because it looks amazing! And of course, we needed to share that with you all.
As we draw closer to May 28, we get more excited to see such different perspectives taking the screen. This featurette also gives us a glimpse of the people behind each short film, talking about the experience of making their films. Spoiler: they’re all lovely people!
Disney’s Launchpad has another little surprise for us: their applications are open for season two! From now until June 11, if you’re a director who can present a different perspective from the usual, go for it! All you have to do is go to their website, read the applicant criteria, and follow the next steps. We can’t wait to see what other wonderful stories come to Disney+ via Launchpad.
Here’s a quick rundown of the main criteria for applying: be from an underrepresented background/having a unique perspective to share; have permission to work in the US; be 21 or older as of December 1, 2021; have at least one scripted live-action production (with a duration of at least five minutes); and if you’re applying with a partner, you two must have a history of working together.
We’ve officially started a countdown for season one of Disney’s Launchpad around here, but what about you? Will you be checking it out as well? Tell us in the comments or tweet us @TheHoneyPop! We’ll love to hear from you.
