Yesterday we shared a hi-res still with you of the new short, The Blue Umbrella, from Pixar Animation Studios. Today we are pleased to bring you another still from the short, this one an aerial view of the street where we catch a glimpse of Blue and Red amongst the sea of black umbrellas.
Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have provided us with this still from their upcoming short, The Blue Umbrella, which will play before Monsters University in theaters beginning June 21, 2013. The full synopsis for the short is as follows:
‘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.’
Additionally, the Wall Street Journal has recently debuted a clip from the short which can be seen embeddedbelow:
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment today announced that Wreck-it Ralph from Walt Disney Animation Studios would be available for digital download on February 12, nearly one month before the 3D Blu-ray and its variants are available to purchase on March 5.
According to the announcement, the download (available as both high definition and standard definition formats), will include all of the aforementioned Blu-ray bonus features with exception to the Disney Intermission featuring Chris Hardwick.
This move marks a first for the company, although the move is not unprecedented as Disney was one of the first to release Blu-ray discs weeks before their DVD-only counterparts and is indicative of the company moving closer to the Disney Movies Anywhere initiative.
Ahead of any official announcement, we have received a list of the bonus features that will be available when Wreck It Ralph from Walt Disney Animation Studios becomes available to own on 3D Blu-ray on March 5 (now available for pre-order).
First up is confirmation that Paperman, the groundbreaking short that played before Wreck-it Ralph in theaters will be included as one of the Blu-ray bonus features.
The Blu-ray will also include Disney’s new favorite element, Disney Intermission, which is a special viewing mode that takes place when you put the film on pause. This time around, Disney Intermission consists of ‘The Gamer’s Guide to Wreck-It Ralph,’ hosted by Nerdist Chris Hardwick.

Just in time for the theatrical release of Monsters, Inc 3D featuring alumna from next year’s prequel, the Monsters University campus store is now stocking its popular 4-armed hoodie, just almost in time for the holiday season.
We first reported on the Monsters University merchandise some time before the viral site went — well, viral, but it’s seemed to go under the radar that despite a couple of items that appeared to be jokes, the site’s Campus Store is a fully-functioning shop filled with (mostly) real products and serviced by Disney Store.
