Check This Out: Concept Art Sketches of Carl from Pixar's Up
Fellow Pixar fanboy Peter of SlashFilm came across some wonderful concept art sketches on display at an exhibit at Walt Disney Studios (via IMDb). As we already know, Pixar's latest film Up is about a grumpy old man named Carl who floats down to South America in his house. There's a great sequence at the beginning of the film that follows Carl from when he is a kid until he becomes the grumpy old man, and you get to see him throughout all ages of his life. For those who haven't seen that sequence, this is your chance to see what Carl looks like over the years. Beyond that, these are just incredible sketches and amazing to see anyway.
By tying thousands of balloon to his home, 78-year-old Carl Fredricksen sets out to fulfill his lifelong dream to see South America. Right after lifting off, however, he learns he isn't alone on his journey, since Russell, a wilderness explorer 70 years his junior, has inadvertently become a stowaway on the trip.
Pixar's Up is directed Pete Docter, one of the original Pixar members who directed Monsters, Inc previously and wrote the stories for Toy Story and Toy Story 2. The film is co-directed and written by Bob Peterson, who also wrote Finding Nemo. Disney will debut Up in theaters everywhere on May 29th this summer.
