Sadly, Disney and Pixar are limiting their participation at next week’s San Diego Comic Con (they are saving their previews and scoops for the D23 event next month in Anaheim). However, if you are in L.A. and skipping the Con, you have a unique opportunity to see the latest short from Pixar ahead of everyone else.
On Thursday July 21st, the North American premiere of La Luna will screen as part of the opening night program at the LA Shorts Fest. A special presentation of “The Making of Pixar’s La Luna” by its director Enrico Casarosa will take place on Sunday July 24th at 12 noon. The presentation will be “loaded with original artwork and insightful looks into Pixar’s production process”. Casarosa will “discuss the journey that led him to create this very personal short, and demonstrate the singularly artistic style by which the film was crafted”. Tickets go on sale July 14th online, the screenings will take place at Laemmle’s Sunset 5 in West Hollywood. If you aren’t at Comic Con, I’d recommend checking this out.
