Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

This unpredictable digital series is a fun forum for unbridled creative expression, and the talented writers behind these diverse stories don't disappoint. Because each one is unique, it's hard to gauge a viewer's interest in them ahead of time. The good news about short-form work is that if you turn out not to be a fan, you haven't devoted a movie-length amount of time to watching it. The bad news is that some of them are so well done, you leave wishing they were longer.

The fact that recognizable Disney faces are involved in the project virtually guarantees kids will want to check out the shorts, and there's no doubt they'll be entertained by most of the stories. Whether they'll get anything substantial out of them is less certain, since that doesn't seem to be a strong focus of most. Even so, the creativity on display in Free Period is impressive, and it's always fun to see familiar actors and actresses in new roles.
