Pixar's Adventures with Carl and Russell - First Aid

As part of on-going promotion for Up, Pixar has debuted the second video in the Adventures with Carl and Russell series (now called UPisodes). The first video, Animal Calls, can be seen here. These videos are content created purely for promotional purposes and are not scenes from the movie itself. This episode today shows us what happens when Carl gets a scratch and Russell comes to the rescue with his Wilderness Explorers first aid kit. These videos are pretty fun to watch and show us more of the character dynamic between Carl and Russell. I just hope they actually help convert a few people into big supporters of Up.

Watch the second episode of Adventures with Carl and Russell - First Aid:

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.

Shoot! I cannot wait for this movie!!! Pixar has never failed me yet, and while I was originally skeptic of this one, these little shorts have gotten me super excited.

this is ridiculous! the sheer amount of balloons necessary to lift a man is enormous. i mean, you see those guys who sell balloons and they have loads in their hands and don't even lift the slightest bit off the ground. imagine trying to lift a HOUSE!!! are there even that many balloons in existance?!? is this old guy hording the world's balloons? that's not to be commended. think of all those poor kids with no balloons at their parties - worldwide! harsh man, really harsh. that kid was probably trying to get some balloons for his friends to play with when he got carried away with that creepy old guy! it reminds me of the twilight zone in a way

Very funny, like what they did for WallE. I usually hate all of Pixar's promo stuff for some reason but fall head over heels for the movie. I am loving this promo stuff for UP so is that a bad sign????

#2 - I don't think that's a racist question. Russell does look Asian, and as the mom of two Asian-American kids, my thought when I saw the first trailers was to be somewhat surprised and pleased. You might not be able to realize how very cool it is for kids to go to the movies and see a kid - even an animated one! - who looks like them. And look - no accent or nerd glasses and he's not just the sidekick! I'm not going to comment on it like it's a big deal to my kids, but seeing white kids in the lead of practicallly every show or movie is something white kids can take for granted. I have to give kudos to Pixar for thinking about making the normal (albeit funny) all-American kid in their new film someone who's not blonde and blue-eyed.

Russell is based off one of the animator’s of Pixar, Pete Sohn, who voiced Emile in Ratatouille.

Russell is indeed Asian. He is based on Pixar animator, Pete Sohn, who is Asian. The creators have indeed confirmed that he is Asian. See this interview. It is clear that Russell is Asian - you can tell by the eyes and the spiky black hair.
