4/13/09: Pixar's Pete Docter and "Up"

Carl Fredricksen, the grumpy, 78-year-old balloon salesman in Pixar's latest film \"Up,\" is voiced by Ed Asner.


By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Pixar writer and director Pete Docter has said he loves animation because even though you know it's not real - you get sucked in and you fall in love with the characters anyway. Docter created the award winning Monsters, Inc. and WALL-E, and next month, he's back again with Pixar's latest film, Up. Pete Docter is in Utah, and joins Doug in studio to talk about imagination, adventure and his newest creation, a grumpy 78-year-old balloon salesman who sets out to fulfill his life-long dream.

"Up" opens around the country May 29th. Click here for more information.
