Where's A Cannes Opener When You Need One?

Jim here. Couldn't resist that one. Yes, Pixar's UP is opening the Cannes Film Festival in ummm, somewhere in France... the city's name escapes me right now, but they speak French very well there. This is the first time EVER that an animation has opened the iconic event and it is no wonder that it is in 3D. This is, after all - the Year Of 3D.

And wouldn't you know it, Disney has opened up their photo vault and given us some more images to stare at as we await the opening of UP at our local theaters. Check them out below.

I can tell you that UP is a VERY impressive effort from Pixar. I have seen the opening 45 minutes or so AND another 5 or 6 minutes of the action packed finale - certain things remain clear: There is only one Pixar. It is evident when you see their work and let me tell you that in 3D - it's mesmerizing. The storyline is top quality as you would expect and quite emotional; it was not the movie I thought it was going to be from the outset. And isn't that what movies are supposed to be all about? Pleasant surprises. It is the animation to beat this year.

Go see UP when it opens on May 29. You'll be glad you did. Pixar's UP brings joy to sorrow and dimension to life!

You Pixar fans UP for this one or what??
