Salt Lake City, UT – Pixar writer and director Pete Docter says 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 was part of the teams that created Monsters, Inc. and WALL-E and he directed Pixar's latest film "Up," which opens around the country today. Docter joins Doug 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. (Rebroadcast)

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