The first photo from Pixar's upcoming 2009 film Up has been revealed. As of right now, all eyes and ears are set on Pixar's Wall-E, due out this summer. As was the exact same last year, the first concept art photo for Wall-E was revealed in January and now the first concept art photo of Up has been revealed this January. To be clear, this is apparently just a concept art photo. At first I was taken aback by the fact that it wasn't Pixar's typical CGI look, but that explains why.
Thanks to our friends at Upcoming Pixar for finding this photo originally. The first trailer for Up will play in front of Wall-E this summer.
Up is Pixar's 10th animated film that is scheduled for release on June 12th, 2009. In this "coming of old age" story, a seventy-something hero, alongside his clueless wilderness ranger sidekick, travels the globe, fighting beasts and villains, and eating dinner at 3:30 in the afternoon. In short, it's about an elderly man who lives in a house that "looks like your grandparents' house smelled" and fights beasts and villains all around the world.
