Have anybody seen the trailer of the new Pixar's upcoming movie, Up?! I don't know what to say, it's Entertaining and Visually Dazzling!!
The movie is directed by Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc.) and his co-Director Bob Peterson (also playing the voice "Dug" in the movie) told a story of Carl Fredricksen, a retired 78-year-old balloon salesman, who finally fulfills his lifelong dream of a great adventure when he ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away to the wilds of South America. But he discovers all too late that his biggest nightmare has stowed away on the trip: an overly optimistic 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer named Russell.
I want to share the experience from my perspective as a movie fan and an artist. The first thing that bang into my head like hammer is the character design for this movie, it is so stylized and sophisticated yet simple and adorable. I don't know how they (at Pixar) capable of creating such design that feels different and stand out from the rest of the other best animation studios in the world. And then of courseit is a tradition at Pixar, the story always plays a big part of the movie, John Lasseter as the executive producer for this movie said that this 10th Pixar feature film is going to be the most funniest and most beautiful of all Pixar's movie.
The second thing about this movie that really caught me as an artist is the characterizations that Pixar put to every single thing in this movie. As an animator myself, there are a lots of talented animators that I envy, and I have the utmost respect for these guys. Every time I looked at the character, it feels so natural and not overacting like most of the animation movie does. And even the voice casting is perfect! everything is coming along together to create this bigger than life animation movie that we could never missed.
Disney•Pixar's Up! will hits the theaters on May 29 to July 23 '09 And it will be the first Pixar film to be presented in Disney Digital 3-D. The film already premiered by opening the 2009 Cannes Film Festival (and it is the first animated film to do so). I recommended everyone to go watch this in Real-D cinema, because the 3D presentation that I got on watching DreamWorks Monsters vs. Aliens in Digital 3-D really gives it a real boost and maximum viewing experience.
