We have obtained a first look at the upcoming Pixar/Disney 2-D animated film Up. We get the following pic and plot synopsis thanks to our friends at the movieweb:
This coming-of-old-age story revolves around a seventy-something guy who lives in a house that “looks like your grandparents’ house smelled.” He befriends a clueless young Wilderness Ranger and gets into lots of altercations. Says Pixar: “Our hero travels the globe, fights beasts and villains and eats dinner at 3:30 in the afternoon.”
This picture, is a picture, of a picture that currently hanging in Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida. Thanks to the awesome power of the internet, we are able to have a look for ourselves. It isn’t much of a sneak peek, we see the backside of the film’s main character and some airplanes – but it is a start at least.
I am pumped that the Pixar/Disney team are dedicated to putting out 2-D films. I love 2-D animation and think it is hilarious that Pixar, (the 3-D lords) are the ones to champion Disney’s renewed cartoon focus. It will be interesting to see a septuagenarian hero in action, and with luck we will have more interesting pictures to show you shortly.
