One Final Beautiful Look at Pixar's Up in Theaters Soon

In honor of the release of Pixar's UP in just a few more weeks, Disney has unveiled one last batch of beautiful new photos from the movie. Not only do I want to take this opportunity to feature them, as they're just gorgeous, but I want to mention how much I absolutely loved this movie. I had the chance to see it (in 2D) before I left for Cannes, and out of everything I've seen recently, it's my absolute favorite. It's one of the most emotional movies I think Pixar has ever made and later turns into a fantastic adventure in the second half. Especially after seeing these photos below, you won't want to miss it, in theaters starting May 29th!
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.
