Okay, that headline might have taken things a bit far. But anything Pixar related has me salivating, and this poster for the company’s newest short film is no different.
Here is the synopsis, pulled from Blue Sky Disney…
“Everyone knows that the stork delivers babies, but where do the storks get the babies from? The answer lies up in the stratosphere, where cloud people sculpt babies from clouds and bring them to life. Gus, a lonely and insecure grey cloud, is a master at creating “dangerous” babies. Crocodiles, porcupines, rams and more — Gus’s beloved creations are works of art, but more than a handful for his loyal delivery stork partner, Peck. As Gus’s creations become more and more rambunctious, Peck’s job gets harder and harder. How will Peck manage to handle both his hazardous cargo and his friend’s fiery temperament?”
Sounds pretty classic. Actually, it sounds like a great starting point for a feature. But I guess Pixar has so many great ideas they can’t stop for each little gem and spin it into 90 minutes.
Plus they have to make Cars 2.
Ah well. It will be great, and here is the first still (blown up a bit) from the short, courtesy of AICN. Click to make bigged.
