Carl’s Date | Official Trailer : Starring Ed Asner, Bob Peterson

A beloved character Carl Fredricksen from “Up” is floating back to the big screen in a new theatrical short film, “Carl’s Date” which is produced by Pixar Animation Studios. 

A new short opening in theaters in front of Disney and Pixar’s “Elemental.” Written and directed by Bob Peterson and produced by Kim Collins, “Carl’s Date” goes home with Carl Fredricksen (voice of Ed Asner) and his lovable talking dog, Dug (voice of Peterson).

The New trailer catches up with widower Carl – who famously reflected on his life with dearly departed love Ellie in an iconic montage in “Up” – and his lovable dog Dug as they embark on a new adventure about dating.

“Miss Meyer likes me and wants to go out on a date,” Carl tells Dug in the trailer, later proclaiming, “I don’t know how to date!”

Carl attempts to prepare for his date by frantically picking flowers from his garden, with adorable commentary from Dug who says he doesn’t find this “fun at all.”

The short features the voice of Hollywood legend Ed Asner as Carl, a role Asner previously voiced in 2009’s Oscar-winning movie “Up” and in the 2021 Disney+ original series “Dug Days.” Asner died in August 2021 at 91.

Carl’s Date” director Bob Peterson confirmed that Asner’s authentic voice is featured as Carl, saying the filmmaking team was able to record with Asner just months before he passed away.

Carl’s Date” will debut in theaters on June 16, showing before the animated Disney Pixar feature “Elemental.
