Stuff We Did: Looking Back at Our Up Adventure

This is another continuation to the "Disney•Pixar Up + Partly Cloudy Now In Theatres!" post. Click on the links to see Upcoming Pixar’s articles from the past which pertain to the subject matter covered:

It’s been a great journey these past two years as we’ve been looking forward to Up’s release, originally set for June 12th, 2009 but then changed to the current date, May 29th.

Remember when you first heard the title of Pixar’s secretive 2009 project? When you found out Pete Docter was back directing, were you extremely excited? I know I was! But what was Up? It could mean ANYTHING! Could it be a movie about birds, the air, or maybe, just maybe a story about an old man who takes to the sky in a flying house for the ultimate adventure?

Then we got this, Original description from TIME: “Pete Docter 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 grand-parents’ 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.”

Remember the first image (above) released? What was the first thought that came through your mind. Then, when the next piece of concept art was put up at WDW did your perception of the movie change?

As you ponder on the questions above, I’ll leave you with the first Up teaser, from then on we really discovered the essense of Up:

And what an adventure it was!

    I wasn’t too excited for Up until the teaser came out and I heard that Pete Doctor was in charge of it. Then I was like, “OMG I can’t wait!”
