Up to open Cannes

Disney/Pixar’s Up will open the Cannes Film Festival on May 13.

The movie is the story of a 78- year old man Carl Fredricksen (voiced by Ed Asner) who rigs helium balloons to his house and flies to South America.

Up is the first animated film to open the festival. It is a definite change of pace from Blindness, which opened the 2008 festival. It opens in the United States on May 29.
