When Monsters University arrives in June, audiences will be treated to a new Pixar short film.  The Blue Umbrella will be Pixar’s first attempt to make a photo-realistic film, something that is incredibly hard to do without running into the uncanny valley.  That being said, the first sneak peek that appeared at the Wall Street Journal, gives me hope that new director Saschka Unseld knows what is going on.

It is just another evening commute until the rain starts to fall, and the city comes alive to the sound of dripping rain pipes, whistling awnings and gurgling gutters.  And in the midst, two umbrellas—one blue, one not—fall eternally in love.

From Pixar Animation Studios, director Saschka Unseld and producer Marc Greenberg, “The Blue Umbrella” opens in theaters on June 21, 2013, in front of “Monsters University.”
