The next animated short film to be released by Pixar is “La Luna”. Directed by Enrico Casarosa and produced by Kevin Reher, La Luna is expected to be released in front of the Pixar film “Brave.” I’ve been a long time fan of Casarosa’s blog and sketchbooks.
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?
