The-Blue-Umbrella-PosterOpening in front of Monsters University this summer, The Blue Umbrella marks the latest short film from Pixar following the Oscar-nominated Paperman (which you can and should watch in full here).

The first clip debuted online earlier in the year, and now Vulture have given us a rather wonderful poster for the short, ahead of its premiere at the Berlinale this week.

“From Pixar Animation Studios, director Saschka Unseld and producer Marc Greenberg, “The Blue Umbrella” opens in theaters on June 21, 2013, in front of “Monsters University.”

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.”

Saschka Unseld makes his third short film here with The Blue Umbrella. And it marks his first time at the helm for Pixar, having worked in recent years as an artist for the studio on the likes of Toy Story 3, Cars 2, and Brave.

The Blue Umbrella will be premiering at the Berlin Film Festival this week. It will then be seen on the big screen attached to Monsters University, which is set for release on 7th June in the US and 4th July in the UK. For now, here’s the great first poster. And following it is the first clip to remind you of what we have to look forward to.
