Apple confirmed this afternoon with a press release the arrival of the short film ‘Blush’, which represents a first step in the multi-year collaboration between the Skydance Animation studio and Apple TV +. Skydance Animation is the studio that John Lasseter, responsible for the mythical Disney and Pixar films, carved out with other CGI animation geniuses.
In ‘Blush’, Lasseter worked with Joe Mateo (‘Big Hero 6’), with what will be a short film by the hand of Oscar and Emmy Award winners. At the moment, the only image of the short is the one you see above, and the release date is not yet known.
The first step for a repertoire of great animated films
What we do know is the synopsis: An agricultural astronaut finds himself stranded on a dwarf planet where he tries to survive as best he can. In your endeavor, you will be visited by an “ethereal visitor” who will introduce you to the joys of creating new life from scratch after a disaster.
“ Blush ” will premiere exclusively on Apple TV +, where we will also see future versions of Skydance Animation in the form of animated feature films “with the quality of movie premieres“. At the moment we know of two such films, both with a premiere slated for 2022: ‘Luck’ (the story of the girl who has the worst luck in the world) and ‘Spellbound’ (the adventure of a girl. who wants to break the curse that has broken his kingdom in two).
