If the ‘dog-and-owner’ friendship stories, particularly Roger and Pongo, taught us anything, it’s that a dog is definitely “man’s best friend.” That’s why we’re super excited to see a new take on the man’s best friend story with the Walt Disney Animation Studios short, “Feast.”
Plot: ‘Feast’ is the story of one man’s love life, seen through the eyes of his best friend and dog, Winston, and revealed bite by bite through the meals they share.
Sounds like a clever and heartwarming concept, which means there should be no surprise to learn that the short is directed by Patrick Osborne (who was head of animation for Paperman and an animator on Wreck-It Ralph, Tangled and Bolt). Hit the jump to find out more information about Disney’s Feast, find out when we will get to see it on the big screen, as well as see the first bit of concept art teasing Winston.

Disney has also released a darker version of the upcoming film’s logo:
Feast is gearing up to make its world premiere at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival on June 10th 2014. But we will all get to see the short film in theaters in front of Big Hero 6 on November 7th 2014.
Osborne was nominated for the Visual Effects Society Awards VES Award in 2011 for Outstanding Animated Character in a Broadcast Program or Commercial for Disney’s 2010 animated special Prep & Landing Stocking Stuffer: Operation: Secret Santa for the character of Lanny. Osborne shared the nomination with Tony Smeed, Chad Sellers, and John Wong.
