EXCLUSIVE: It’s all about connection in Season 2 of Disney+’s Launchpad.
The collection of live-action shorts is set to debut on September 29, and Deadline has an exclusive look at the posters for all six — Project CC, The Ghost, The Roof, Beautiful, FL, Black Belts and Maxine.

Launchpad Season 2 is a collection of live-action shorts from a new generation of dynamic filmmakers. This season showcases six writers, five directors and one writer-director from underrepresented backgrounds who were given the opportunity to share their perspectives and creative visions.
Continuing the goal of Disney’s first season of Launchpad, which was to diversify the types of stories that are being told by giving access to those who historically have not had it, the second installment focuses on the theme of “connection.”
