In February at Disney’s Social Media Moms Celebration, we were treated to the experience of previewing this short film. I was not only amazed at what went into the making of this short, but meeting and hearing from the writer/director Dave Mullins was an experience of a lifetime.
This film about a bully, and a schoolyard playground,where the toys come to life to help teach a bully a lesson in tolerance and love, is just incredible. A red hooded monster named Lou, who lives in the “Lost & Found” box, tries to stop a bully named J.J. from destroying his classmates’ beloved toys.
Not only did this short film hit the nail on the head about how bullying hurts, it taught us why the bully does what he or she does, what he or she has gone through to bring them to this place. This film had me feeling for those bullied as well as for the bully himself.
As a former teacher, this lesson is all to many times forgotten. We want to blame the one that is hurting others, but most times, that’s the person hurting the most. Lou teaches us that, it showed us how the playground toys helped Lou to become a better person.
Animation at its best as only Pixar and this brilliant writer, director, producer can do. This short film touched and taught me and I’m certain it will have that same effect on you….Lou, in theaters this Friday, June 16, 2017.
Cars 3 comes out Friday, June 16th and this short film before the “main event” will steal the show in my opinion. It will definitely have you leaving the theater with a new perspective on kids and the struggles they deal with on a daily basis, some more than others and how helping each other can be just what is needed to heal the void.
I can’t wait to see again and remind myself that this short film is not only entertaining but teaches an incredible life lesson few have been able to explain in this way.
Dave Mullins is not only brilliant, but he is the most humble and kind person , I’m so glad I had the incredible opportunity to meet and have Dave autograph my poster of Lou.
In theaters June 16,2017.
