------ New York Comic Con is proud to announce that the first 50 minutes of Disney•Pixar’s 10th film, UP, will screen for the first time at New York Comic Con in the IGN Theater. UP is a comedy adventure about 78-year-old balloon salesman Carl Fredricksen, who finally fulfills his lifelong dream of a great adventure when he ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away to the wilds of South America. But he discovers all too late that his biggest nightmare has stowed away on the trip: an overly optimistic 9-year-old Wilderness Explorer named Russell. From the Academy Award-nominated director Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc.), Disney*Pixar's UP invites you on a hilarious journey into a lost world, with the least likely duo on Earth.
Disney•Pixar’s UP screening will be introduced by director Pete Docter and producer Jonas Rivera on Saturday, February 7 at 6:30pm in the IGN Theater at New York Comic Con. Please note seating is EXTREMELY limited and interested attendees are recommended to arrive at 5:30 PM for a security check-in.
