These 12 short films are sure to mesmerize and charm both kids and adults. Familiar faces from "Cars" and "Toy Story" make appearances, plus there are some truly lovely new characters, like the sweet boy in "La Luna," who learns how to clean the moon. What Parents Should Know:
Parents need to know that "Pixar Short Films Volume 2" is a collection of 12 short animated movies made by the world's leading animators at Pixar. A few of the shorts will seem familiar to those who've seen Disney/Pixar films on the big screen, because they preceded full-length theatrical features. There is some mild cartoonish violence in a few of the shorts, but it's of the slapstick variety that is more humorous than upsetting (like when a rock nearly flattens the dogs in "Dug's Special Mission"). Although they're short, many of the films encourage the importance of unconditional friendship and loyalty. —Common Sense Media
