- “Toy Story 4 (will go) without an animated short when it enters theaters June 21… That makes it the first Pixar movie without one since the original Toy Story in 1995, which was only paired with Tin Toy on its home video releases, not in theaters,” according to Slate.
Recent Pixar films included shorts right beforehand, including “For the Birds” before “Monsters, Inc.,” and “Presto” before “WALL-E” and “Bao” before “Incredibles 2.”
Yes, but: Not all shorts have done well in the eyes of critics. Just look at “Olaf’s Frozen Adventures,” which aired before “Coco.” The short film received a lot of negative reviews. It was later pulled from theaters, too.
