Up will be Pixar Animation Studios' 10th feature film. Pete Docter is directing the film and Bob Peterson is the co-director and writer. Jonas Rivera is the producer and it features the voices of Ed Asner, Christopher Plummer, John Ratzenberger and Jordan Nagai. The film is set to be released on May 29, 2009 and will be the first Pixar film released in Disney Digital 3-D.
As described in the Disney press release:
From the Academy Award-nominated team of director Pete Docter ("Monsters, Inc.") and co-director Bob Peterson comes "Up", a comedic adventure taking off (and lifting spirits) in summer 2009. Carl Fredricksen spent his entire life dreaming of exploring the globe and experiencing life to its fullest. But at age 78, life seems to have passed him by, until a twist of fate (and a persistent 8-year old Wilderness Explorer named Russell) gives him a new lease on life. "Up" takes audiences on a thrilling journey where the unlikely pair encounter wild terrain, unexpected villains and jungle creatures. When seeking adventure next summer -- look "Up."
