New Up Clip, Production Featurettes, Interview and More

A ton of new Up content has been released on IESB.com including a new clip from the movie and three production featurettes.

First off is this new clip, Pursuit, from Pixar’s 10th film! This is a chase scene featured briefly in the trailer in which Muntz’s dogs chase Carl and company. Watch it below, YouTube version used for convenience:

IESB also has a 15 minute featurette (split up into 3 parts) going through all stages of production. Watch how Up came to be throughout the years of development and production. Featuring storyboards, concept art, animation, effects, reference shots, voice acting, music (you can hear many tracks and part of a song from the Up soundtrack, I’m going to predict is called "Adventure is Out There") and more. Watch Part 1 of the video embedded below. Part 2 can be found here and Part 3 is over here. Beware of possible spoilers:

Last but not least, Pete Docter sat down with IESB for this insightful interview, it includes some significant spoilers so be careful!

Related: Just as a side note, the Official Up Website now contains a profile of Charles Muntz, go to the characters section of the site and scroll to the right to see it.

    does anyone else feel that these clips are going a bit overboard now! i mean that i love Up so far by what I’ve seen, but do you think we have all seen too much?

    I haven’t watched any clips since the first mention of Snipes, neither will I watch this one as I feel that these chunks would ruin my enjoyment of the film especially since all these clips will keep playing in my mind until the UK premiere in october!

    I was just wondering if anyone feels the same way or am i just blurting out randomness?

    @ximonb I agree, I am purposely avoiding clips now because I want a holistic viewing experience that isn’t cluttered with out of sequence clips that may ruin my perception of the film and how it will play out.

    I will say they do have a number of mild spoilers, and for those who don’t want to be given these little pieces of the puzzle, it can be a bit ‘overboard’.

    On the other hand, having seen the completed film recently, I can tell you that by watching these clips (and anything else on the internet for that matter) you cannot in any way know enough to spoil the film.

    I saw 20+ unfinished minutes of Ratatouille at Pixar several months before it came out and for me it made me appreciate the film all the more when I saw the completed work.

    I guess it comes down to if you are a ‘want to know the behind-the-scenes of everything’ or a ‘knowing too much ruins it for me’ kind of person.

    Wow! These scenes are breathtaking! I especially love the conversion of Ellie’s theme to an action song.

  5. Bryko614 says:

    By the way, HUGE spoilers in the production featurettes, including major story arcs for Kevin and Carl!

    There’s a better version of this clip at: http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1810014785/video

    It’s called “Get Back.”

    Beautiful. The film-making process at Pixar, from script… to storyboards… to the final feature, is engaging and is a joy to watch, if but only within a few minutes of footage. I still can’t get over that music….

    As others have said, don’t watch any of the featurettes if you wish to remain surprised by some of the elements in the film. (I didn’t even bother looking at the screen at one point.)

    Overall, each clip was most enjoyable, despite the spoilers. Thanks for posting up this information, martini!

    Ok… the marketing guys need to stop with all these clips! Are they afraid that we’re going to stay away? The more clips I see of something, the less chance I have to be surprised. I’ve already given in and seen ‘Russell’s entrance,’ as well as ‘Snipe Hunt.’

    I managed to stay clear of previews for Star Trek…

  9. Mitch says:

    uruseiranma – I agree in that the marketing crew is going overboard, but it’s ultimately the choice of the individual whether he/she wishes to watch the clips or not. Heh.

  10. Simon-Simon says:

    That chase-scene was out of this world! Why oh why do I have to wait almost six freakin’ months for this movie?! It’s so unfair!

  11. Simon-Simon says:

    Wow after reading all of the comments I’m having a real hard time deciding what clips to watch! I mean does this 15 featurette feature huge spoilers? Or just small ones? And does it contain less spoilers then the interview?

    Have you seen this? It features one painting of Carl by Pete I’ve never seen before.

    Guys- think about it. The Pixar marketing people are marketing to more than just us Pixar geeks. Although the average human admires Pixar, they aren’t out there viewing every last little tidbit of UP info. Let’s not forget, these ‘spoilers’ generally have to be sought out and clicked on to be viewed. No one at Pixar is force-feeding this stuff to anyone.

    There are demographics who might respond to certain kinds of marketing efforts, such as these clips, more than other kinds of marketing.

    Just sayin’.

    PS: The link posted above is great. (and no spoilers)

    “Pixar marketing people”

    Disney markets the films for Pixar. It’s completly up to Disney as to how the films are marketed.

    I’d read that Nate Wragg had left, but didn’t know that Lou Romano had been let go from Pixar as well.

    Thier book is on amazon.
