Do you like adorable things that run at a convenient length of precisely 6 minutes and 57 seconds? You do? Then check out the brilliant Pixar short La Luna, which has been made available to watch online for your viewing pleasure (and can be seen below).
La Luna originally proceeded Pixar‘s Brave when it went into theatres earlier this year. Whereas that film turned out to be a somewhat less than satisfying venture for the world’s greatest animation studio, La Luna emerged as the highlight of the experience, despite being almost 10 times shorter than the feature it was attached to. Quality, not quantity, people. Don’t we always tell you that?
La Luna tells the story of three generations of men who… well, they don’t exactly have a normal job, but let’s just say it involves using a ladder to climb up onto the moon. And that’s just for starters. Inspired by the work of Japanese animation genius Hayao Miyazaki and directed by Enrico Casarosa, La Luna has been nominated for an Oscar in the animated shorts category at this year’s awards.
What do you think, Pixar fans? Super-magical, isn’t it?
