A new trailer for "Blush" shows the first look at Apple TV+'s first animated short film produced in partnership with Skydance Animation.

The short trailer, uploaded to the official Apple TV YouTube channel, shows an astronaut's encounter with a pink alien on a tiny, desolate planet.

The short is written and directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Joe Mateo. According to Apple, the story shares Mateo's "deeply personal journey of healing, hope and the undeniably human moments of being rescued by love."

"Blush" joins several other animated originals slated to debut on Apple TV+, including two John Lasseter-produced films: "Luck" and "Spellbound." It also joins existing animated Apple originals, including the Academy Award-nominated "Wolfwalkers."
