Walt Disney Pictures has unleashed the full press kit for the upcoming Pixar film Up, which hits theaters on May 29th and will be making its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival tomorrow, May 13th. Inside said press kit they’ve included the final batch of images, 38 in total. Among the images are some really neat behind the scenes pics of directors Pete Docter and Bob Peterson and voice stars Ed Asner and Jordan Nagai, along with some cool concept art and some final shots from the film. Early buzz on Up is that it is yet another beautifully crafted work from Pixar and fits perfectly as their 10th film.
Another special note should be paid to the fact that this is Pixar’s first 3D film. And even though Roger Ebert contends that we can all experience it in 2D and still get the full power of Pete Docter’s splendid film, I am very anxious to see Pixar cross over into that third dimension. Though for the record, I’m more excited to see it blasted onto an IMAX screen in 2D.
