La Luna

Pixar Ani­ma­tion Stu­dios has unveiled a syn­op­sis and a new image for “La Luna,” its lat­est short film, which will pre­miere at next month’s Annecy Inter­na­tional Ani­ma­tion Festival.

Sto­ry­board artist Enrico Casarosa directed La Luna, which tells a “time­less fable of a young boy who is com­ing of age in the most pecu­liar of circumstances.”

Pixar’s syn­op­sis states: “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?”

The Annecy fes­ti­val takes place in France from June 6 to 11.

The next Pixar fea­ture film, Cars 2, fea­tures the voices of Owen Wil­son, Jason Isaacs and Michael Caine. It’s slated for the­atri­cal release June 24, with a Hol­ly­wood pre­miere June 18. The short ahead of that film will fea­ture the Toy Story char­ac­ters, and is called “Hawai­ian Vaca­tion.”
