This article discusses the Disney+ short film Remembering and will cover the release date, the premise, the trailer, and other details about the film.
Remembering is a short film directed by Elijah Allan-Blitz that will try to answer questions like “where do ideas come from?” or “where do they go when they’re forgotten?” It was officially announced in August, when Disney announced their slate of content coming on Disney Plus Day.
From Disney Plus, here is the official premise: “The story follows a writer (played by Academy Award winner Brie Larson) who loses a very important idea when her phone rings. Personified as golden light, this lost idea is found by the writer’s inner child, who takes us on a journey through The World of Imagination. It is easy to lose touch with this world, but each of us can be inspired by it—if we just remember.”
Is there anything else to know?
Yes! While the short film will apparently be a criticism of how much attention we pay every day to our phones, Disney Plus will encourage some of its subscribers to use it while watching Remembering. What does this mean? Apparently, the short will come with a first-of-its-kind Augmented Reality app, where the experience is shaped by the movie’s moving images. Select Disney Plus subscribers in the U.S. will be able to interact with the story by scanning the TV to extend The World of Imagination into their living room.
Remembering release date and where to watch
Remembering will premiere on Disney Plus on September 8. This is also known this year as Disney Plus Day, a day that the company describes as a celebration of the streaming service across The Walt Disney Company, where a lot of content will premiere on the platform. Other content coming to Disney Plus this day includes the behind-the-scenes documentaries on Obi-Wan Kenobi and Thor: Love and Thunder. The company will also have surprise announcements, special promotions, and perks for subscribers. This is the second iteration of the event — last year, it happened on November 12, on the two-year anniversary of the release of the platform in the U.S.
Director: Elijah Allan-Blitz.
Is there a trailer?
No. Since this is a short film, we probably shouldn’t expect a trailer. Disney Plus has only released a still picture from the short, which you can check out here, though it’s always possible they debut a 30-second sneak peek shortly before Disney Plus Day.
