I keep getting more and more excited about this film. Disney and Pixar’s Up looks like it might just be the coolest and most original film from the team yet. Sure, on the outside it seems like an odd concept for a kid’s movie. Guy flies away in his house after his wife dies and a little kid get stuck on his porch… Hilarity ensues. I can’t imagine what the pitch meeting was like but the final result is stunning from what I can tell.
Sadly, with the demise of Jun Planning, it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing any real toys from the film, but maybe if it does well enough, that will change.
Check out the new featurette they just released on the character of Dug, the talking dog.
