The chaps over at Disney Pixar aren’t usually content with creating one masterpiece when they create a new feature length movie, they insist on creating a ‘short’ before each one. In the case of Up, Partly Clowdy which was directed by Peter Sohn.

Today, have released that the Short placed before Toy Story 3 will be called Day & Night and is directed by Teddy Newton. My personal favourite short was called Lifted and was placed before Ratatouille. I’ve just had a little look and although I can’t embed it, you can head over here to view it.It was so good that it won the best animation short at the Oscars in 2007. You can see the full list of Pixar’s shorts on wikipedia here.

Day and Night Synopsis: When Day, a sunny fellow, encounters Night, a stranger of distinctly darker moods, sparks fly! Day and Night are frightened and suspicious of each other at first, and quickly get off on the wrong foot. But as they discover each other’s unique qualities–and come to realize that each of them offers a different window onto the same world–the friendship helps both to gain a new perspective.

Toy Story 3 is released 23rd July.
