First Look: Pixar's Up Rendered
Last January we brought you a concept art photo from Pixar's summer 2009 movie Up. It wasn't much, but like the statue of Wall-E we had in January of 2007, it's the only thing we have until the teaser trailer shows in front of Wall-E. In connection with the Disney and Pixar press conference held yesterday announcing their entire line-up, a fully rendered version of that exact scene from the concept art photo has appeared - and it looks much better. Again, it's not much, but it's a start!
Thanks to our friends at Upcoming Pixar for finding this photo originally. The first teaser trailer for Up will play in front of Wall-E this summer.
From the Academy Award-nominated team of director Pete Docter ("Monsters, Inc.") and co-director Bob Peterson comes "Up," a comedic adventure taking off (and lifting spirits) in summer 2009. Carl Fredricksen spent his entire life dreaming of exploring the globe and experiencing life to its fullest. But at age 78, life seems to have passed him by, until a twist of fate (and a persistent 8-year old Wilderness Explorer named Russell) gives him a new lease on life. "Up" takes audiences on a thrilling journey where the unlikely pair encounter wild terrain, unexpected villains and jungle creatures. When seeking adventure next summer — look "Up."
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. Up will float its way into theaters on May 29th, 2009.
