In Pixar’s Up (Disney, 5.29.09), a grumpy old guy (voiced by Ed Asner) leaves home and visits the far-away jungle (the Amazon, I’m guessing — Africa is too scary and political) by tying several hundred balloons to his house and floating off into the wild blue yonder. Her accidentally takes a lovable obese kid (a relation of one of the WALL*E teletubbies) along for the ride. Christopher Plumber will also voice a role. The HD stereo version of the teaser went up on 11.8.
Up is being co-directed by Pete Docter and pic’s screenwriter Bob Peterson.
