La Luna App, Now An Enchanting Interactive Story

The new La Luna App, La Luna: The Story Project, was inspired by Disney-Pixar’s Academy Award®-nominated short film La Luna, originally released with the film Brave in June, 2012.

If you saw Brave, you probably remember this lovely film about the day “Bambino” goes to work with “Papa” and “Nonno.” They have a very special job involving a boat, brooms, a very tall ladder, the moon, and tons of stars.

La Luna: The Story Project brings this charming tale to life and includes both a theatrical version and a storybook version. The La Luna app also features an exclusive behind-the-scenes look into how the story was created.

Please click through the gallery below to learn more about its features. It is truly special — don’t miss it!

    Enjoy the story, La Luna, in three different ways:

    1. The original version, just like you saw it in its theatrical release.

    2. The storybook version. Read it like a traditional book while enjoying gorgeous original watercolors (you can switch back and forth between the watercolor and film versions).

    3. Interactive story. Follow along as the narrator tells the story.
