BLUSH: A New Short Film From Skydance Animation Has Been Announced For Apple TV+

Apple TV and Skydance Animation have teamed up to release films under their new banner, and the first project of theirs is an animated short called Blush which has just been announced for streaming!

It has been announced that a new animated short titled Blush is on the way from Skydance Animation. The short will be the first of many animated projects to come to Apple TV+ under their new combined banner.

The official press release promises that this will be the tip of the iceberg for the plans for Apple Original Films and Skydance Animation. Described as 'the first short film to debut as part of an expansive multi-year partnership,' it seems as though Blush is ushering in something exciting for fans of Apple.

Fans of intergalactic adventures will find this one interesting as it follows a horticulturist-astronaut's adventures after crashing on a desolate planet. Through an ethereal figure he meets, his journey for salvation seems as though it might pay off after all.

You can see the official announcement from Apple and Skydance below.
 

From Apple Original Films and Skydance Animation comes “Blush,” the beautiful first short film debuting as part of an expansive multi-year partnership to deliver groundbreaking, premium animated films and theatrical-quality animated television series in over 100 countries on Apple TV+. 


“Blush” follows the journey of a stranded horticulturist-astronaut’s chances for survival after he crash lands on a desolate dwarf planet. When an ethereal visitor arrives, the once-lone traveler discovers the joy in building a new life and realizes the universe has delivered astonishing salvation.


The inaugural Apple/Skydance short film is written and directed by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Joe Mateo (“Prep & Landing,” “Big Hero 6”), and shares the storyteller’s deeply personal journey of healing, hope and the undeniably human moments of being rescued by love. Mateo developed “Blush” alongside the Skydance Animation team and the film is produced by Heather Schmidt Feng Yanu (“Toy Story,” the “Cars” trilogy) and executive produced by Oscar® winner John Lasseter (“Toy Story,” “Monsters, Inc.,” “Cars”). “Blush” joins highly anticipated Apple/Skydance features “Luck” and “Spellbound,” and the animated series “The Search for WondLa,” with several more feature films and television series to be announced over the term of the pact. 


“Blush” follows Apple’s recent Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature for “Wolfwalkers,” the latest film from two-time Academy Award-nominated director Tomm Moore and director Ross Stewart.

What are your thoughts? Is this an animated project you find yourself interested in, or are you looking forward to what else might be available from Apple and Skydance in the future?
