Ocurrió durante la pasada edición del Comic Con de San Diego. Fue la presentación del teaser trailer de ‘Up‘, la nueva película de Pixar dirigida por Pete Docter (uno de los directores de esa maravilla que responde al nombre de ‘Monsters SA‘. No muestra gran cosa, sólo la idea que había dejado planteada en muchas de las fotografías que se han podido ver.
«Our hero is the 78-year-old Carl Fredricksen (voiced by Edward Asner), a short and square little man who walks with a cane. When he was young he met a girl and fell in love with her. Her dream was always to explore Paradise Falls in Venezuela, but unfortunately life got in the way and it never came true. Now Carl is an old widower and he sets off on his own to head down to South America to live out that dream before his life ends. Most of the movie takes place in the wonderfully envisioned mountains of Venezuela, where Carl eventually lands after his house sails south…Along the way, Carl meets numerous other characters and creatures. One of them that Docter showed us was a young, chubby 9-year-old boy named Russell. He’s collected all the merit badges (for the Wilderness Club) except one – assisting the elderly. So he stows away in Carl’s house and floats with him down to Venezuela as well.»
