“Dug Days” Official Trailer Released for Disney+ Series of Shorts Debuting September 1st, 2021

Hi everyone!

In honor of International Dog Day, Disney+ released a new trailer for Pixar Animation Studios’ “Dug Days”, a series of five shorts that will release on Disney+ September 1st, 2021. Read below for more information from Disney after the trailer!

Bob Peterson, the voice of Dug then and now, wrote and directed the new shorts; Kim Collins produces. It was familiar material for Peterson, who was a screenwriter and co-director on “Up,” which won an Oscar® for best animated feature. He has long understood why fans are so drawn to the character. “Dug is pure of heart—he’s a good soul. I think people enjoy that part of Dug,” says Peterson. “Plus, people love their dogs. We’ve gone to great lengths to include truth in dog behavior, so they see their own dogs in Dug.” 

Coming up with new adventures for Dug was not a problem for Peterson, who kept top of mind the idea that this is Dug’s first time out of Paradise Falls. “Everything is new, and he’s excited about all of it,” he says. “But the smallest things can distract Dug, never mind an actual squirrel.”

All five shorts debut on Disney+ on Sept. 1.
