If you enjoyed the story and animation of La Luna as much as I did, you will most definitely want to pick up the La Luna storybook. This book is filled with 40 pages of watercolor artwork by Writer/Director, Enrico Casarosa and is just as beautiful as the rendered short. On the Disney website (now sold out) you can purchase the La Luna storybook (signed by Enrico Casarosa himself) and Bambino plush as a set. Alternatively, you can purchase the (un-autographed) La Luna book on Amazon.
Below you can see the signature signed in what appears to be a silver sharpie. This is such a treasure!
"It's something that is a little more slow-paced and poetic, something that makes you smile and think rather than just laughing," said Casarosa in a recent interview (the link has been removed since the NASA site no longer is hosting the interview).
The Bambino plush is 12" in height and is stitched to perfection - from the hat to the patches on the overalls. Even the star in Bambino's hand is reminiscent of the magical evening that we were a part of while being immersed in this Pixar short. This is a definite collectors item for every Pixar fan.
After you order your Book and Plush Bambino, don't forget to check out our review of the La Luna short.
