Loop is a 2020 American animated short film directed and written by Erica Milsom with the story being written by Adam Burke, Matthias De Clercq and Milsom, produced by Pixar Animation Studios, and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is the sixth short film in Pixar's "SparkShorts" program and focuses on a chatty boy and a non-verbal girl, learning to understand each other. The short was released on Disney+ on January 10, 2020.


Renee, a 13-year-old non-verbal girl, sits patiently in a canoe waiting for a partner while playing with a sound app on her phone. Marcus arrives late and is forced by the camp counselor to partner with her, much to his annoyance. Marcus attempts to speak with Renee, who only mutters and makes noises to voice her pleasure or displeasure at something. When Marcus attempts to show off his paddling skills, Renee begins to moan. Marcus asks Renee to tell him what she wants and she responds by showing a poop emoji on her phone and signaling to a couple of outhouses. Marcus obliges and paddles her to land.
