“Dream project announcement. Since 2019 we’ve been working on an animated short film with Disney, told entirely through dance/music (can’t believe I get to type that). And on March 5th, 'Us Again' will play in theaters before Raya and the Last Dragon (wherever theaters are open),” Keone said.

“It will later go to Disney+ in June. There are so many levels to which my heart explodes with joy when thinking about this coming to life, particularly that we can watch our daughter watch this - and that watching the shorts before Disney films have always been something I’ve deeply cherished - but this film and the village of people who helped bring it to life, are so special,” he added.

He also thanked producer Brad Simonsen and director Zach Parrish for trusting them.

“Thank you Zach, Brad and the team for believing in us. The Disney dork in us is floating on animated clouds above space mountain,” he said.

The world-renowned dance couple previously worked with international celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Korean pop superstars BTS and Got7, and Kendrick Lamar, among others.
