At the beginning of May, we had the first info on La Luna, a new short from Pixar.This isn’t going to play in front of Cars 2, but perhaps in front of Brave. The film is a coming of age story about a young boy, and the night on which he is taught the peculiar details of his family’s traditional occupation. There’s a new image from the film below.
Click either of the two images that follow to enlarge.
Here’s the synopsis once more:
La Luna is the timeless fable of a young boy who is coming of age in the most peculiar of circumstances. Tonight is the very first time his Papa and Grandpa are taking him to work. In an old wooden boat they row far out to sea, and with no land in sight, they stop and wait. A big surprise awaits the little boy as he discovers his family’s most unusual line of work. Should he follow the example of his Papa, or his Grandpa? Will he be able to find his own way in the midst of their conflicting opinions and timeworn traditions?
La Luna premieres this week at the Annecy International Animation Festival, which runs June 6-11 in France. Enrico Casarosa directs and is Head of Story; he’s been with Pixar since 2002, starting on Cars, with credits following on Ratatouille and Up.
