Last year, we introduced the “Direct Your Disney Side” project, in which our Yellow Shoes Creative Group (partnered with McGarry Bowen and Adolescent Films) worked with three tween filmmakers to bring their #DisneySide-inspired short films to life.

The final short in the series, “Soar,” will appear in theaters nationwide starting today, as a part of the NCM First Look pre-show content (which will run before film previews begin). “Soar,” by 15-year-old Claire Jantzen, tells the story of a female heroine who braves many dangers and villains to rescue a boy and fly off to a happily ever after.

Watch the other shorts in this series here:


  • I love it it is so cool

  • Neat short. I like the style of filmmaking, too; it’s like an evolution of the style of the early Alice Comedies.

  • *Claire Jantzen (correction on the name). Wonderful!!

  • That is spectacular.
