The Blue Umbrella: Hi-Res Still and Official Synopsis

Earlier, a short clip from the newly revealed Pixar short, The Blue Umbrella, was made available. This afternoon, Pixar has released a hi-res still, and the official synopsis for the short:

Still from new Pixar short The Blue Umbrella

It is just another evening commute until the rain starts to fall, and the city comes alive to the sound of dripping rain pipes, whistling awnings and gurgling gutters. And in the midst, two umbrellas — one blue, one not — fall eternally in love.


The short is also now confirmed to be playing before Monsters University in theaters this summer.

Several months ago, rumors began circulating about a Pixar short in development involving otherwise inanimate objects and a rainy city. The tumblr blog related to the project has now confirmed that this was the rumored project.
