Pixar readies La Luna short at the D23 Expo for Disney’s Brave in 2012


Pixar readies La Luna short at the D23 Expo for Disney's Brave in 2012

One obvious highlight of Disney’s 2011 D23 Expo, in addition to all the regular House of Mouse awesomeness, was the almost-secret screening of La Luna, the Enrico Casarosa CG animated short from Pixar. Readying itself for a big screen debut in front of next summer’s Brave, La Luna follows a long line of beautiful Pixar shorts, from Jack Jack Attack, to Burn-E, to Mike’s New Car, Hawaiian Vacation, Presto, Boundin, and so many more; each typically featured in a spot before one of Pixar’s big films. The 4 minute tale focuses on a young boy, who reveres his father and grandfather, following in their footsteps where possible. Not in a big, adventurous way, or a grand story with many cinematic plotpoints… just a simple, brief, and beautiful tale. Take a look at a sneak peek clip, then get ready for the full deal, with Brave.
