Disney Pixar’s Spark Shorts is a subcategory of Pixar, specializing in short films. According to a statement from Jim Morris, the president of Pixar via their website, the program is “designed to discover new storytellers.. these films are unlike anything we’ve ever done at Pixar, providing an opportunity to unlock the potential of individual artists and their inventive film making approaches on a smaller scale than our normal fare.” Written and directed by Rosana Sullivan, and produced by Kathryn Hendrickson with help from the studio, Kitbull has certainly made a mark on the Internet since it was released.

Kitbull starts off with a stray little kitten finding solace in the backyard of an owner who had just brought in a pit bull. Throughout the development of the relationship of the two characters, we see images of the dog being chained outside to sleep, trained to be violent (as he rips the head off of a stuffed animal), and thrown outside in the storm with slash marks on his body. The film does, however, end on a happier note, the unlikely pair become friends despite all odds and with the help of the kitten, the pit bull manages to escape from his abusive owner. Both the kitten and pitbull are adopted by a kind, new couple and I’m not too proud to admit that I sobbed like a baby watching the wholesome ending.

Although emotional, this is still a short film geared towards kids. After deciding if it is age-appropriate or not for your child, watch it and have a conversation with them about animal abuse. This may be something you have already done if your family follows a vegan diet. If not, this could be a possible avenue to lead into the discussion of the different perceptions of abused pets versus abused farm animals.
