One of the benefits of seeing a new Pixar movie in theaters is catching the short film that plays before the feature. The studio has churned out gems like Day & Night, Partly Cloudy, One Man Band, in front of some of their biggest hits, and this year in front of Brave the wonderfully charming short La Luna was featured. The short has now been released online in full, so if you missed director Enrico Casarosa’s gorgeous pic in theaters, now’s the time to rectify that. Not only is the story top-notch, the film also includes a great guitar-infused score by Michael Giacchino. Though it ultimately lost the Best Animated Short Oscar to William Joyce’s moving The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, it’s still a swell piece of work that’s well-worth your time.
