Set to debut this week at Annecy, Pixar has finally released some information and images from its next original animated short, La Luna.
Here’s how the studio describes the short:
Directed by Enrico Casarosa
Produced by Kevin Reher
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?
This film is the first directing assignment for Casarosa, who’s been at Pixar since 2002. With Toy Story Toons shorts set to run before Cars 2 and The Muppets, look for La Luna to be attached to next summer’s release, Brave. Until then, keep an eye peeled at your favorite animation festivals for a chance to see La Luna early.
Here are the images and the poster for La Luna.
