Smash and Grab

2019 | Animation | Short Film


Pixar's WALL-E-Esque Short Film

Smash and Grab are two robots who, true to their names, smash and grab glowing rocks to use as fuel for a constantly moving train on a futuristic Mars-like planet. The two are attached to cords that constantly charge them and prevents them from leaving their jobs. To beat the boredom, the two partake in tossing and catching the rocks to throw into the furnace. After many failed attempts, they succeed and try to high-five one another, but are held back by their charging cords.

Smash and Grab is an experimental Pixar animated short film from a new division of the studio as part of Pixar's SparkShorts series.

Written and directed by Brian Larsen
