Indiewire/Thomson on Hollywood has revealed a still and synopsis from a previously secret Pixar short film, La Luna, likely attached to Brave in 2012.
“La Luna is the timeless 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,” reads the synopsis.
“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?”
Directed by Enrico Casarosa, with music by Michael Giacchino, La Luna will premiere at the Annecy International Animation Festival this June.
La Luna is Casarosa’s directorial debut. He joined Pixar in 2002 and has since worked as a story artist on Cars, Ratatouille, and Up. He is currently head of story on an unnamed Pixar film.
