Concept Art And Character Maquette For Pixar’s La Luna

First officially revealed this week, La Luna will be the new, original short film from Pixar and director Enrico Casarosa. We already posted an image from the film, alongside this official plot blurb:

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?

As it turns out, some concept art for this film has been online for a very long time – three days under one year, in fact. As Little Bleeder Jumbo Roni reminded me, we got our first look at the cast of La Luna courtesy of behind-the-scenes photos for Teddy Newton’s Day and Night.

Here are the images in question, then a readjustment of the concept art pieces and maquette photos, to make them clear.

That sterling photoshop work was done by PixarBlog in Germany. I’m having quite the German day today.

And thanks to Pixar Planet for the official La Luna logo.

Now, there’s a lesson here, and it’s that you should always look closely at the work animation studios have pinned to their walls. It’s something I’ve always taken heed of when actually allowed into these places – but the cruel thing is, I’m under embargo just by being there, so I can’t pass on much of what I see…

Suffice to say: there are animators, and they are working on some very exciting things, and one day, these things will be public and then we’ll be able to talk about them. There’s one UK director working on something, here in the UK, that I really can’t wait to see go public. It’s not this director’s first feature, but it’s their first animated feature and, not to put too fine a point on it, it looks really incredible…
