Actually, I think it's better for Pixar to contrast their shorts and feature films with totally different themes, which has been the pattern so far...

Nothing like sci-if. 8D

I agree. This short, "Presto" in comparison to Wall•E really reminds me of the contrast between "Boundin'" and The Incredibles. As soon as Boundin' ended, the theme completely changed. I believe Brad Bird acknowledged that in the TI commentary.

But anyway, I can't wait to see it! It looks really cute. It is definitely something I could imagine Pixar animating.

Yeah I like to see a little variety. I honestly dont remember any of their shorts having the same theme as the movie they were placed with...

Also there is a pattern of short films on the topic of the feature film, like Mike's New Car, Jack-Jack Attack and etc. So we may see a short film of WALL-E, meaning that we may get one Sci-Fi short film this year.

I like the idea of this. Very Pixar-ish, indeed. Looks good to me!

That's true. They do seem to be making a short for every film they put out right now. Maybe it'll give them something to put on the dvd since there's next to nothing now.

I'm sure they did Lifted so they could make the gel aliens as a test since they were originally going to appear in Wall-E. (I like them having contrasting shorts too :o )
