If you saw Brave this past summer, the traditional Pixar short film beforehand was yet another charming installment in the animation studio's long history of brilliant short filmmaking. With beautiful imagery, cute characters and a truly original premise, the Oscar nominated short La Luna might have actually succeeded in showing up the feature length film from Pixar that followed (in fact, Brave probably isn't the best animated feature of the year). While you can catch this short on the Blu-Ray/DVD of Brave arriving November 13th, the full short is now available in full for your viewing pleasure online. It's lovely. Watch!
Here's the full Pixar short La Luna by Enrico Casarosa, originally found via The Film Stage:
A 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. La Luna is written and directed by Enrico Casarosa, a storyboard artist on Up, Ratatouille, Ice Age and Robots, and it will be on the Brave Blu-Ray/DVD, going on sale November 13th.
