Pixar's 'Kitbull' Is An Animated Short Filled With Heartfelt Lessons

After the overwhelming hype from "Endgame," most, if not all, of the subsequent movies failed to meet the increased expectations of fans. You may be one of these many fans, wondering when the next big hit movie will come out.

Instead of forcing yourself into this cyclical state of boredom, look no further than "Kitbull," an animated short film by Pixar. No, it is nowhere near the same length as "Endgame," nor does it have the same amount of action-packed scenes. However, the allure of this short film are the arrays of emotions you will go through. You may have thought the "I love you 3000" messages and the death of a particular beloved Marvel figure (not naming who for the few that still haven't watched the movie yet) made you cry, but "Kitbull" will pull your heart's strings like you never knew before.

Obviously, I am not here to spoil the nine-minute clip. What I will go through here is mention a two of the biggest messages that Pixar attempts to address with "Kitbull."

Don't judge a book by its cover

This message may be one of the biggest cliches that you likely heard a million times before in your life. However, we all know that this message does not tangibly play itself out in reality. Whether it be due to that individual's past or a reputation that lingers around people with a certain trait, much of society is quick to judge. Pixar does a fantastic job portraying the true personality that lies behind one's mere physical or peripheral view. After realizing this fact, the protagonist goes on to break this barrier and kindle a relationship without any prejudices.

No type of abuse is accepted

Pixar also focuses heavily on discouraging people against any form of abuse. You're bound to have "your feels be hit hard" once you see the struggles that the victim goes through. Being something that many of us can relate to a personal level, the next key step that we need to implement is to do whatever we can to stop preventable abuse from other people, which is exactly what the protagonist does. Being mere bystanders is not okay. We "bystanders" need to change to activists and become the initiators of compassion.

So please, take nine minutes out of your day to watch what may be one of the best short animated films you have watched. Don't forget some tissues while you're watching!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
