First image of Pixar’s Blue Umbrella, the short attached to Monsters University

One of my favorite things about Pixar, and recently Disney, is the animated shorts that are attached to their movies. My recent favorite was Paperman, a short that played before Wreck-It Ralph about a man who falls in love at first sight and tries to get the attention of the woman with paper airplanes.

Disney has released the first image of Pixar’s Blue Umbrella, a short that is being attached to the front of Monsters University.


As with Paperman, it looks like we’ll be getting another love story.

Here’s the synopsis:

“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.”

I just hope Rihanna isn’t going to be featured in this.

It is being directed by Saschka Unseld, and you’ll be able to check it out on June 21, 2013.
