Just today, Pixar released a brand new short titled Purl following Purl, a pink ball of yarn who gets a job in a fast-paced, high energy, bro-tastic start-up. Yarny hijinks ensue as she tries to fit in, but how far is she willing to go to get the acceptance she yearns for, and in the end, is it worth it? The full short is currently up on YouTube for all to enjoy:

In Pixar’s Instagram post, they also hinted that the short will be released as part of the Disney+ streaming service library once it launches in late 2019.

Purl was directed by Kristen Lester, produced by Gillian Libbert-Duncan, and is part of Pixar’s SparkShorts series.

What do you think of the short? Should we advocate for more yarn inclusivity in the workplace?

Surprised at the language – the BMW joke as an example.

Completely agree. For Disney to release this under one of their youtube channels, knowing kids will watch, is unacceptable. Once upon a time, you could trust Disney for clean family entertainment. No more.

Do we really need yet ANOTHER female empowerment piece. I’m so sick of it all, and I am a WOMAN. It’s all so hokey and forced. This was a total waste of time. It felt like I was watching a public service announcement about equality in the workplace. Are women this insecure about their place in the workplace .. or even in the world?! I’m tired of every underlying theme of every single movie being “women and girls can do it too”. *yawn* Yes. We know. Let’s move on people.

Oh my. What a poor attitude to have.
