45 Minutes of Up at WonderCon

Convention, Jonas Rivera, Pete Docter, UP

Posted by Martin • February 20, 2009

It has just been announced that the first 45 minutes of Up will be shown at San Francisco’s WonderCon!

The screening should be similar, if not the same as, what press and fans saw at this year’s New York Comic Con. So if you are in the area and dying to see more of Up, but willing to wait a few months to see the full film, go ahead and watch the preview.

It’ll be held at the AMC Loews Metreon on Saturday the 28th starting at 7:30. I’d advise you to get in line as soon as the Up panel featuring Pete Docter and Jonas Rivers is over (from 3:30 to 4:30) to guarantee one of 250 available seats.

Anyone planning to attend?
