Article on upcoming Pixar movies including this one

Pete Docter, the Pixar lifer who made "Monsters Inc.," and co-director Bob Peterson are preparing this "coming-of-old-age story" about a seventysomething 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 alter kocker altercations. Says Pixar: "Our hero travels the globe, fights beasts and villains and eats dinner at 3:30 in the afternoon."


Intriguing.

If there's one thing Pixar hasn't done yet, it's those wacky exotic environments. Jungles and savannahs, and the arctic. Yay old people!

Pixar's stuff is always high quality, so I'll probably check this out eventually. If not in theaters, on DVD for sure.

The only Pixar film I didn't like initially (haven't seen Cars, yet) was Monsters Inc. First time I watched that I thought it was awful, but I caught up with it again last year and its a really, really good film. Works better without the expectations being so high, but Goodman/Crystal make a terrific double act, and the stuff with the kid is well-played in terms of the saccharine - underplayed content.

This one sounds quite cool too. It does depend on whether they can do a film that's a little less goofy and a little more witty though.

Has this been posted yet?

Upcoming Pixar reports that the upcoming 2009 Pixar animated film "Up" looks to be based on one of history's most famous stories - "Don Quixote".

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra's classic novel follows a man who has read so many stories that he becomes convinced he is a knight and sets off, along with his earthy squire Sancho Panza, in search of adventure. They begin with his attack on windmills that he believes to be ferocious giants.

For almost six decades the Walt Disney Company has been trying to turn Don Quixote into an animated feature film, but without success due to the almost episodic nature of the story.

"Monsters, Inc." director Pete Docter helms the project which will get a release on June 12th 2009.

Good luck, Peter Docter. Maybe you can escape the Quixote jinx...

Hey, I'm not complaining or trying to say it's not computer animated or nothin', just asking whether I was the only one who thought it looked like it had a hand-drawn look (not necessarily meaning actually hand-drawn) to it.

It's not just you. I think it looks more like flash animation though.
I'm pretty sure it's concept art, as was stated before.

Yah, Pixar does the majority of their work in traditional 2d animation initially. At least, I remember hearing that during a commentary, or saw it in some special. I forget.

I dunno, what are you "huh"-ing? The 2D animation? They do. They don't always do a full color version of it from what I understand, maybe it's a rough pencil animation, but much like using mo-cap to get a good foundation (tee hee), they do 2D animation to get the "feel" of the scene's flow.

• UP (Domestic Release Date: May 29th, 2009, Disney Digital 3-D) Pixar Animation Studios Director: Pete Docter Co-Director: Bob Peterson Producer: Jonas Rivera Writer: Bob PetersonVoice Talent: Ed Asner, Christopher Plummer, John Ratzenberger, Jordan Nagai

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.

Ed Asner as Carl Fredricksen is great casting.

Not exactly. They thumbnail keys but nobody at PIXAR does their animation in full drawings first not even rough pencil tests. Most wouldn't even scan their keys in, they only use them as a really basic guide to plot out where they are going in a shot.

I absolutely love the premise of this movie, LOVE it. I honestly love all animation of this kind, pixar and dreamworks etc. It looks funny in the same mould as a lot of their other stuff that adults can enjoy, gotta be a fan of the notion of a house taking off due to helium balloons; I think this is a fantastic and magical idea. It's so simple, but it will come across well and look the part.


This is probably, maybe, the film I'm looking forward to the very most!
