Lou tells the story of an unseen creature in a school’s lost-and-found bin that helps teach a bully a lesson.

From USA Today:

With baseballs for eyes and cloaked in a red hoodie, the title monster keeps a watchful eye on the kids on the playground in secret from his box. A boy named J.J. is a real terror, snatching a video game from his classmate and kicking a girl’s stuffed animal into a basketball hoop, and Lou decides it’s time for a high-jinks-filled comeuppance.

The new short is directed by Dave Mullins and produced by Dana Murray.

Mullins, a Pixar employee since 2000, says about Lou the character.

“I thought it’d be really cool to have a character who could hide in plain sight,” said Mullins. “[Lou’s] purpose in life is to give things back…He gets J.J. to understand that.”

Consider us intrugued! Lou and Cars 3 open in U.S. theaters on June 16th.
