Pixar’s newest critical darling, La Luna, is currently vying for an Academy Award in the Animated Shorts category. It is in a unique position for a Pixar short – all recent shorts from the animation studio have been released widely before being nominated, but La Luna will not get its wide release until June of this year. This means that many have yet to see the beautiful new short. A brief clip was released last year after the announcement of the film’s existence, but it provided more character development than plot. Now, Disney/Pixar has unveiled a new clip, which you can view in HD after the jump!
Note that the following clip gives away an important plot detail, so if you would like to go in not knowing anything about La Luna, I would suggest waiting until the short hits theatres.
For everyone else, check out the stunning clip below:
