WATCH: Check out this clip from beautiful new Pixar Short The Blue Umbrella

January 27th, 2013 by Marc Comments

When Monsters University opens this summer, Pixar will have a short before it, as is their norm. And it looks like it’s going to be a beauty…

The six-minute Short will be called The Blue Umbrella. And on my, it looks so, so, well, real…

Apparently the love story of two, em, umbrellas, this looks like it is going to be a real treat. In fact, I think I’m more excited about this from first time director Saschka Unseld than I am about Monsters University.

Watch and enjoy…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
