Pixar surprised fans yesterday by bringing to light an upcoming short, La Luna, complete with a still and intriguing synopsis. After a short is announced, further details always begin to trickle out. La Luna is no exception.
Pixar just revealed the artistic title card for the film shown above. A trusted source, who has seen La Luna, adds that the title "is VERY appropriate" (emphasis theirs). So it definitely has something to do with the moon—'la luna' in Italian and Spanish.
Kevin Reher, who produced shorts Day & Night and Partly Cloudy, has been named as producer. He hinted at the film's setup in an interview back in February:
"The new [short] we're finishing production on now... it's beautiful, it's lyrical, it's very different from all the other ones. It's amazing how easy it can be when you just have three characters and two sets."
Finally, La Luna's total running time is 6:53, making it Pixar's longest theatrical short film to date by nearly one minute.
