Shedding Some Sunlight on Partly Cloudy!

About a month back we got a tip about Partly Cloudy’s plot. It’s the story of babies being born from clouds, involving storks who deliver them, of course. I was not ready to reveal such things because of confidentiality reasons but now that The Pixar Blog has gotten the plot out in the open, here it goes:

Spoiler ahead!

"Welcome to the world of clouds, where every cloud creates cute, cuddly babies that get delivered to their families by storks.  Every cloud, that is, but Gus.  Gus is the littlest cloud and only knows how to make snapping alligators and spiky porcupines.  Ouch!  For Peck, Gus’s stork and best friend, this means the job can be quite painful.  But as Peck and Gus soon discover, sometimes all you need is a little and you can weather anything!”

End of possible spoilers…

Details like this will be revealed in the brand new Disney magazine, Twenty-Three, a tie in to the new Disney fan club D23. More details about that will be announced during the annual shareholders meeting on Tuesday, March 10th.

Anyhow, the first volume (pictured above) has a bunch of Disney (and Pixar) related articles including a tour of the Emeryville campus, an article on Up featuring director Pete Docter and of course a piece on Partly Cloudy. This article highlights the plot of the short and the meaning behind the story, which is communication, something that director Peter Sohn had trouble with since his family only spoke Korean. In the mag, you can also see a picture of protagonists Gus the cloud and Peck the stork.

It’s quite an interesting combination to contrast Up isn’t it? What do you think?

    What an interesting plot-line. Most adorable, if I do say so myself. I’m curious to see how Mr. Sohn handles the directorial helm….

    Nobody else has anything to say about this exciting new short?

    I’d actually like to read the magazine. it looks interesting, but unfortunately, as always, Australia seems to be in the far reaches of Disney’s love.

  5. The story sounds a bit weird, but I’m sure it will be amazing. This could also be the first time that there are similarities between a Pixar film and the short preceding it. I would love to see the image of Peck and Gus so if someone who has access to the magazine could scan it that would be fab.

    It sounds sweet but strange. I’m not sure. But then again, this is Pixar, so it’s probably amazing. 😛
