If your tear ducts are in need of exercise, simply watch a Pixar movie. This is a tried and tested formula. It never disappoints.

Just consider Pixar’s most popular releases, such as Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Up, and WALL-E. If you’ve seen any or all of these films, chances are you shed tears at some point while watching them. And Pixar is at it again.

This time around, Pixar has released an animated short that does not at all fall short of its most ardent supporters’ expectations. And it’s free to view on Youtube. That generosity alone should be enough to tug at your heartstrings.

This latest Pixar release is called Kitbull. It’s a 9-minute short film packed with all of the essentials of an engaging Pixar creation. You have your sympathetic characters, your engaging plot and storytelling, and, of course, your superbly rendered animation. But at its core, Kitbull’s appeal lies on its implicit advocacy.

Kitbull is about an abused pit bull. After having been treated by life quite unfairly, he regains his footing with the help of an unexpected friendship. Essentially this is a story about resilience, empathy, and compassion.

Pit bulls are quite misunderstood. Many people fear them. Kitbull addresses this misguided assumption, alongside many other issues, such as animal cruelty and prejudice.

This movie is essential viewing. It’ll take so little of your time but you’ll definitely walk away with lots of character-building thoughts to mull over.
