Disney is all set to debut its short-film collection, Launchpad’s season two sooner rather than later. Launchpad is a celebration of budding talent from underrepresented creators that would otherwise remain unrecognized. Its season one featured 6 shorts from six directors that brought their vision and perspective on board. This season, the show also has a writing track that gives true meaning to diversity. Season second will consist of six writers, five directors, and a writer/director. Like its predecessor, the second outing is centered upon a theme. This time, the selected contestants have to write stories around ‘Connection.’ Back in February 2022, the anthology series was in the script writing stage, but that was long back. We reckon that things have picked up since then and Launchpad will be back with a bunch of passionate, relatable, and impressive stories that would spark new hopes and magic in audiences.
Read on to know everything about Season two of Disney’s Launchpad.
Season two of Launchpad airing date: When’s the release date of the series?
As of now, there are no specifics about when Launchpad will be out. But we assume that season two will be available to watch until sometime in 2023. Hopefully, if the Covid pandemic causes no production delays at this time, the series will adhere to its airing schedule.
Season one was in the works in February 2020, but it was not premiered until 28th May 2021. But given the production’s benefit of the doubt, season two should not take this long.
Season one of Launchpad is exclusively available for viewing on Disney Plus.
The participants’ scripts are analyzed by Disney’s creative teams. Out of over a thousand applications, only a few make it to the selection process. Later, they are teamed with another budding filmmaker and a creative executive who mentors them throughout the process.
It begins with getting the right director on board to tell a story that has never been told or seen before. The most hardest part is pairing people with one another.
