First Look: Pixar’s New Short ‘La Luna’
Disney has released the first image and synopsis from their upcoming Pixar short La Luna about a young boy coming of age in peculiar circumstances. Directed by Enrico Casarosa (story artist on Pixar films such as Cars and Up), La Luna is only seven minutes long and will premiere in June at the Annecy International Animation Festival which runs June 6-11 in France.
Here’s the synopsis for La Luna:
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?
