For the Love of ‘The Blue Umbrella’

Last night, the kids and I saw ‘The Blue Umbrella’, the Disney Pixar short that precedes Monsters University. It is AMAZING. Even my 5 & 7 year old were WOWED by this story which is a “love declaration to the rain” according to Director Saschka Unseld. My kids are thrilled to OWN their very own blue umbrella that Pixar gave me on my trip to the press junket for Monsters University. Isn’t this umbrella and photo of the kids sweet?


You can read more about this incredible Pixar short in my interview with Director Saschka Unseld here. Monsters University is a fabulous must see family movie and The Blue Umbrella is a beautiful piece of cinematic magic that is not to be missed too!

Here’s a quick taste of ‘The Blue Umbrella’ in this trailer here.

Catch The Blue Umbrella in theaters before watching Monsters University starting June 21st, 2013.
