Disney Launches iPad App Based On Oscar-Nominated Pixar Short Film 'La Luna'
Disney has just released a brand new iPad app that revolves around one of my favorite short films of all time, "La Luna." The app is called La Luna: The Story Project, and it serves as a companion app for the 2011 Pixar computer-animated short film that was paired with "Brave." Written and directed by Italian storyboard artist Enrico Casarosa, "La Luna" is the wonderful tale of a young boy who learns about the value of personal identity in the unlikeliest of places: the moon. (The title of the short is Italian for "The Moon.") [caption id="attachment_465174" align="aligncenter" width="480"] La Luna: The Story Project[/caption] Weighing in at a hefty 432MB, La Luna: The Story Project offers a new interactive storybook experience that features original artwork by Casarosa himself. The app lets you:
La Luna: The Story Project is available now in the App Store for $3.99. The app requires iOS 5.0 or later, and is compatible with iPad 2, third-generation iPad, and fourth-generation iPad. "La Luna" was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film last year. But it lost to "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore," which has its own interactive storybook app for iPad. "The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore" is a production of Moonbot Studios, which recently collaborated with Chipotle for the iPad game Chipotle Scarecrow and its companion animated short film, "The Scarecrow."
