Luxo Jr. ★★★½

Luxo Jr. is a definite step up from The Adventures of Andre & Wally B. It really displays Pixar’s talent for putting life into the lifeless, whether it be a lamp, a toy, a robot, or a fish (or a car, I guess). It may only be a minute long, but it’s fun characters, surprisingly expressive animations, and overall charm elevates this short above it’s contemporaries. 

It also lead to what might be the best live-action remake of a Disney property, right here.

Just so y’all know, I am planning on doing these mini reviews for all the Pixar short films that have been released as a bit of a side project. I know these aren’t really the same caliber as my normal reviews and are meant to be more casual, but I have been really busy with personal business as of late, and I haven’t been able to see as many full length movies as I’d like to. So I figured I might just watch these and review/rank them, so I don’t completely disappear from Letterboxd.
