The future of Pixar Animation Studios is looking bright with the release of their latest short on Disney+, Nona.
As part of the SparkShorts program, which develops and brings through new storytellers, it marks the directorial debut for Louis Gonzales whose worked as part of the animation team on a number of movies including Incredibles 2.
We were fortunate to have a chat with Louis Gonzales and producer Courtney Casper Kent about the journey of making Nona and more.
Also part of the SparkShorts program is Twenty Something – you can check out our interview with its director, Aphton Corbin, here.
A grandmother, Nona, plans to spend her day off by shutting out the world to watch her favourite TV show, “E.W.W. Smashdown Wrestling.” However, when her 5-year-old granddaughter Renee is unexpectedly dropped off, Nona is caught between her two favourite things.
