Pixar's 'La Luna,' Timeless Coming of Age Fable from Director Enrico Casarosa

Thompson on Hollywood

Here’s a first look at Pixar’s latest short film, La Luna, which landed an Oscar nomination after premiering at the Annecy International Animation Festival. The short’s director and Head of Story, Enrico Casarosa, began with Pixar in 2002, working as a story artist on Cars, followed by Ratatouille and Up. La Luna marks his directorial debut, and he is currently serving as Head of Story on an upcoming Pixar film.

The synopsis for La Luna, a “timeless fable of a young boy who is coming of age in the most peculiar of circumstances,” is below.

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.  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?

I’m so looking forward to this! Pixar studios has made a name for themselves by putting quality, and beautifully written films out there for the public! Every single film that I’ve seen has NOT disappointed! I loved each of the films that Casarosa has worked on, and I’m certain that his directorial debut will be filled with the same “go get ’em” talent that he’s displayed so far! Thank you! I will be there with bells on!
