Would you like an early look at the Pixar short film that will front this summer's Monsters University? Then here's a little clip...
Aside from the global success of its features, Pixar has a worldwide reputation as a maker of classic short films. Often serving as a proving ground for new CG technology, or a launch platform for debutante directors, these shorts - from the seminal Luxo Jr to last year's La Luna - have become a vital part of the studio's history.
Pixar's next short film, The Blue Umbrella, will appear in front of Monsters University this summer, and as the clip below proves, Pixar still has the ability to tell concise, gentle stories with little more than a couple of everyday objects.
