At the 2020 Investor Day, Disney unloaded plans for all of its major brands to create new films and TV shows into the foreseeable future. Pixar, though once a holy protected brand, was no different. The animation studio announced three new animated series coming to Disney Plus in the next few years. Don’t confuse them for Planes the other Disneytoon spinoffs.
The first is a series about the lovable golden retriever Dug from Up. Called Dug Days, each episode focuses on Dug and Carl encountering something new in their quaint suburban world. Like puppies and fireworks! Dug Days is premiering in fall 2021.
The second series brings back Lightning McQueen and Mater as they go on a cross-country road trip, meeting new characters and old friends. It’s set to premiere in the fall of 2022. Ka-chow.
The last series is the first totally original TV show from Pixar. Inspired by different perspective of team meetings, Win or Lose follows a co-ed middle school softball team in the week leading up to their championship game. Each episode comes from the perspective of a different character viewing the same events and highlights the little challenges of life. It’s set to premiere in fall of 2023.
