Pixar latest Spark short “NONA” is the story of a grandmother called “NONA”, as she plans on spending her day off by completely turning off all the distractions from the outside world, to watch her favorite show “E.W.W. Smash Down XVII”, which also makes her feel connected to her deceased husband, but the reality plays out a little different than she planned. Her 5-year-old granddaughter RENEE is dropped off at her place, as her mother needs to work and if anyone whose ever been kept in charge of taking care of a child knows for a fact that kids require a lot of attention.
What follows next is a series of incidents that keep distracting her while unfolding the beauty of human connections. The people of Pixar are pros at tugging your heartstrings with the simples of stories and animations that deliver and hit you with all the emotions, and they deliver the same with their new SparkShorts as well. The art and stylistic approach for every PIXAR SparkShorts is different from one other and their approach for “NONA” can be described as “PIXAR in the early 2000’s” and without a single line of dialogue, between the characters and with very expressive animation, the story of “NONA” is brought to life.
Director Louis Gonzales gives a few scenes in this SparkShorts by giving us little visions of how Nona sees the world through her mind. With a closer look at things in Nona’s living area, you can also observe that there are a lot of squares around her, while also driving the point of how closely she feels connected to wrestling. All in all, the short is a heart-warming and charming look into the life of a woman whose plans are upended with a very sweet underlying message that can be noticed and understood about LIVING IN THE MOMENT and making new memories with your loved one’s.
NONA is currently available to stream on Disney Plus.
