Before I start gushing over this like a madman, I'll pony up a few details about this amazing clip. Here's a short clip of Pixar's new short The Blue Umbrella, directed by Saschka Unseld, which will play before each screening of Monsters University (just like La Luna before it) and is Pixar's attempt at getting closer to photorealism.
Now that the info's out of the way...it looks so GORGEOUS. The short will follow a cute little blue umbrella that falls in love with a red umbrella (so cute), and I'm sure those cute expressions are going to get even cuter by the end of the short. Pixar's shorts are always stunning, in story and style, so I'm expect nothing but the best. Part of me would even be okay if they'd only release short films from here on out...but only if they're this promising.
