As Lillian Baker and I (plus my entire family) eagerly await the debut of Ratouille from Pixar, Variety reports that the studio’s 2009 release will be Up. This will be about "a 70-year-old man who teams up with a wilderness ranger to fight beasts and villains." The script is by Bob Peterson, and Peter Docter is the director. He did Monsters, Inc.
The premise doesn’t sound that exciting to me, but neither did the story of a a few fish when i first heard it. And Finding Nemo was great. Hence, I have high hopes for this.
Next summer, Pixar’s pic is Wall*E. In 2010, look for Toy Story 3.
