The four great­est Pixar shorts

GT (UK) - - SCREEN -

The only thing bet­ter than a new Pixar film? The short that ac­com­pa­nies it – and Find­ing Dory is no dif­fer­ent, with the ex­em­plary, adorable Piper pre­ced­ing the main event. It was a hard choice, but these are Pixar’s great­est shorts to date… La Luna (Brave): A dreamy, jaw-drop­pingly re­alised tale about three gen­er­a­tions of an Ital­ian fam­ily tasked with sweep­ing shoot­ing stars from the sur­face of the moon. So many feels. The Blue Um­brella (Mon­sters Univer­sity): A short so spec­tac­u­larly re­alised that many couldn’t even tell it was an­i­ma­tion; Pixar mar­ried tech­ni­cal wiz­ardry with a purty score in style.

Partly Cloudy (Up): The joy­fully dys­func­tional tale of a parental cloud who gives a ha­rangued stork ba­bies to de­liver is as emo­tive as it is amus­ing. In short, Pixar at its best.

For the Birds (Mon­sters Inc.): Slap­stick mixes with char­ac­ter aplenty in this mini-story of a bunch of bick­er­ing birds bal­anc­ing on a wire, and their an­noy­ance at a gi­ant bird who wants to make friends.
