Hitting theaters in front of Elemental on June 16, 2023, the new Carl’s Date trailer has just dropped. We cannot wait to see all of the humor and emotion of Dug and Carl (once again) up on the big screen.
If there’s one thing we know about Dug (who we were first introduced to in the movie, Up), it’s that he’s a good dog. And, as we learned in the series of Dug Days shorts, Dug will do anything to help out Carl in his own dog way.
“Carl’s Date,” finds Carl reluctantly agreeing to go on a date with a lady friend—but admittedly with no idea how dating works these days.
CARL’S DATE TRAILER
We were lucky enough to have watched Carl’s Date at a recent visit to Pixar Animation Studios – you can read our review here.
CARL’S DATE SYNOPSIS
This year, Pixar Animation Studios resumes the magical moviegoing tradition of pairing their feature film with an animated short—like 2018’s Oscar®-winning “Bao” that accompanied “Incredibles 2” in theaters. Releasing in front of “Elemental” is a new short that catches up with Carl Fredricksen (voice of Ed Asner) and his lovable talking dog, Dug (voice of Bob Peterson), who were introduced in Pixar’s Oscar®-winning feature “Up.”
Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® Award winner Bob Peterson and produced by Kim Collins, this all-new short, “Carl’s Date,” finds Carl reluctantly agreeing to go on a date with a lady friend—but admittedly with 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. “Carl’s Date” opens in theaters in front of Disney and Pixar’s “Elemental” on June 16, 2023.
