  • The True Meaning Behind "Day and Night"

    I felt some very strong, gay rights undertones in this short. They are there. Look for them. Pixar tried to cover it up with the woman on the beach scene, but adults can see past this. This is a short film about acceptance, and in this generation, the biggest issue with acceptance is amongst the gay community. Notice how both "day" and "night" seem equally masculine/femanine. What a coincidence. Of course I am open to other theories.

    As a gay man this was my initial interpretation of the film, and towards the end I felt almost certain this was the concept.

    We all know how smart PIXAR is. They did not sit down at a desk and say "let's make a short film about acceptance" and leave it at that. Acceptance of what? Differences? What kind of differences? How does this relate today? What issues do we have today that have anything to do with accepting people for who they are and who they love?

    Gosh. I really wonder, but I'll be child friendly and shy away from the dreaded "G" word.

    I think it was broader than any one specific issue, just about humanity in general's tendency to reject what they're unfamiliar with and how beautiful it can be when they discover more about it, share ideas, etc. Personally, I interpreted both Day and Night as being male.

      Perhaps, and this is just a suggestion, it is just a short film about day and night? And with all things--we bring to it the perspective of how we see the world. Why should it be an acceptance message? It could very well be. It could be about differences of any sort. I did see that.

      As a writer and artist, I believe to just create and let the message just be. That's the audiences responsiblity to some degree.

      I will say's a great little movie. Look at the rides at Disney's Epcot. All educational...but entertaining. You ride it. You might learn something. It might spark some imagination. But, in the end, it's just a ride--we give it meaning. As we do with this great little flick.

      The allegory comes to mind. Maybe? That might be in there. Something to think about. Good discussion topic.


      PS: Personally, I like to think it was to give the audience something better then that insipid "Knight and Day" Cruise vehicle....
