Pete Docter (USA, 2009) 90 min
Associate Producers Jim Morris and Denise Ream expected to attend
The latest from the creative geniuses at Disney-Pixar is Up, a comedy adventure in which 78-year-old Carl Fredricksen fulfills his lifelong dream of a great adventure when he ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away to the wilds of South America. But he discovers all too late that his biggest nightmare has somehow been stowed away on the trip: an overly optimistic eight-year-old Wilderness Explorer named Russell. Directed by the Academy Award–nominated Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc.), Up is a riotous romp into a lost world, with the least likely duo on Earth.
