Director Saschka Unseld has been teasing his recently completed short film, The Blue Umbrella, since last year, but there is much that we still do not know about the upcoming Pixar short. We know that it will star a blue umbrella which becomes smitten with a red umbrella, and that it will expectedly have fantastic visuals. Now, we know what the title treatment will be, which you can take a peek at after the break!
Pixarblog shares the image above (hi-res version will hopefully be coming soon), which was sent out by Disney/Pixar to the press in Germany. It is a fairly simple representation of the title, but it remains to be seen whether the final version that will be released to the public will have its color or other aspects altered before the short is released.
The Blue Umbrella will premiere at the Berlin Film Festival next month, and will play alongside Monsters University worldwide beginning this June.
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.”
