Exclusive: Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera Talk ‘Up’


For Pixar fans, another year of waiting is over as the latest feature film Up is released in theaters. Earlier this week, director Pete Docter and producer Jonas Rivera sat down with a selection of the press and animation students at the University of Cincinnati to talk about the new film and the buzz at Pixar.

Fat Guys at the Movies co-host Kevin Carr was on hand to capture the event on videotape, with selections presented here for your amusement. Find out the inspiration for the film, its journey to the 3D screen and how many balloons it really takes to life a house in the air.

Up opens in Disney Digital 3D nationwide on May 29.

Kevin Carr crawled from the primordial ooze in the early 1970s. He grew up watching movies to the point of irritation for his friends and was a font of useless movie knowledge until he decided to put that knowledge to good use. Now, Kevin is a nationally syndicated critic, heard on dozens of radio stations around the country, and his reviews appear in a variety of online outlets. Kevin is also a proud member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association (BFCA), the Online Film Critics Society (OFCS), and the Central Ohio Film Critics Association (COFCA).
