These shorts have been hilarious and heartfelt, and from the details we’ve read, Carl’s Date is going to be packed with plenty of these moments. Many fans have speculated about Carl’s dialogue with the passing of Ed Asner. Director Bob Peterson confirmed that Asner recorded new lines for the short before his passing and did an amazing job!
Read the full synopsis below, and be sure to watch Carl’s Date when it premieres February 10, 2023, exclusively on Disney+.
In Pixar Animation Studios’ special short, “Carl’s Date,” Carl Fredricksen reluctantly agrees to go on a date with a lady friend—but admittedly has no idea how dating works these days. Ever the helpful friend, Dug steps in to calm Carl’s pre-date jitters and offer some tried-and-true tips for making friends—if you’re a dog.
How come it hasn’t been released yet?
Great question. It was in the monthly Disney+ and Hulu email. I saw you posted in the forum as well that it was removed from the Disney Media Press site, too…so, it will be interesting to see what happens with the short. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if it hits on Valentine’s Day?
