As a childhood Disney fanatic, Pete Docter probably didn't expect to be where he is today. Where is that, you might ask? Well, in the director's chair on Pixar's latest smash hit.
Pixar's 10th animated feature film Up has been selected to open the 62nd Festival de Cannes on May 13. While Cannes has always been animation-friendly (Disney's "Dumbo" in 1947, 2001's "Shrek" and last year's Waltz With Bashir all made their way into the Official Selection), it is the first animated film to actually open the festival. Serious props to our friends across the Bay.
