The official trailer for Blush has debuted ahead of the romantic space story’s debut this Friday, October 1. The Apple Original Films and Skydance Animation-produced short will roll out globally on Apple TV+.
Blush follows the journey of a stranded horticulturist-astronaut’s chances for survival after he crash lands on a desolate dwarf planet. When an ethereal visitor arrives, the once-lone traveler discovers the joy in building a new life and realizes the universe has delivered astonishing salvation.
The CG-animated short is written and directed by Joe Mateo, a veteran Disney Animation artist whose story and screenplay credits include Prep & Landing, Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice and Meet the Robinsons. Blush is produced by Heather Schmidt Feng Yanu and executive produced by John Lasseter.
