LA LUNA

Why Watch? Being paired with Brave earlier this year got La Luna in front of plenty of audiences, including all those who contributed to the $532 million worldwide gross of Pixar’s princess story. But there still might be a few out there who have not seen this wonderful little coming of age tale. Found via The Animation Blog, here’s the full version of La Luna to light up the world.

He will now be on your iPad, should you choose to download him. Ebert’s Greatest Movies app has hit iOS devices, recommending to you all the greatest that cinema has to offer. Think of it as a Cliff’s Notes version of his books, and a great cheat-sheet for filling up your Netflix queue.

What is Movie News After Dark? It is (d) all of the above. “La Luna is the timeless fable of a young boy who is coming of age in the most peculiar of circumstances.” That’s the opening of the synopsis to Pixar’s La Luna, the short that will play the Annecy International Animation Festival next month in France. It’s our adorable headlining image. (Courtesy of Walt Disney Pictures)
