Yesterday I was lucky enough to get tickets to an early screening of Pixar’s latest feature, Monsters University, the prequel to their 2001 blockbuster Monsters, Inc. As I made my way along London’s Southbank towards the British Film Institute, my excitement grew as this wasn’t just a screening of the film but also a Q&A session with the film’s producer Kori Rae and its director Dan Scanlon.
Pixar has released the details for the monstrously fun music that will be part of this summer’s Monsters University. From the music that we’ll hear when seeing the film, to the film’s official original soundtrack album, to the music that will be included in the attached short The Blue Umbrella, it sounds like the film will definitely be a feast for the ears along with the eyes and funny bone.
The Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film (aka ITFS—International Trickfilm -Festival Stuttgart) wrapped up over the weekend. The popular festival, now in its 20th year, sponsors screenings and competition programs in nine different animation categories along with an audience award. ITFS also offers lectures and workshops, as well as school and studio presentations.
As much as fans look forward to Pixar’s feature length films, there’s always equally as much excitement about the short films that accompany them. With Monsters University is the next Pixar film to find its way to the silver screen (on June 21,2013) and the short accompanying it will be The Blue Umbrella (directed by Saschka Unseld). However, if you happen to find yourself in Austin, TX during this year’s SXSW Film Festival, you’ll get a chance to see the short stand on its own two feet.
