This weekend at Comic-Con, Pixar previewed footage from their next film, “Up”
Up is Pixar’s 10th animated film that is scheduled for release on May 29th, 2009. In this “coming of old age” story, a seventy-something hero, alongside his clueless wilderness ranger sidekick, travels the globe, fighting beasts and villains, and eating dinner at 3:30 in the afternoon. In short, it’s about an elderly man who lives in a house that “looks like your grandparents’ house smelled” and fights beasts and villains all around the world.
Up is co-directed by Pixar regulars Pete Docter, who directed 2001’s Monsters Inc, and Bob Peterson. The screenplay for the film was also written by Bob Peterson, who wrote 2003’s Finding Nemo.
