First reports from 'Up' test screening

Blogger Larry Fire writes about his experience at an early test screening of Up (which will be in theatres on May 29 of next year) that took place yesterday evening.*

Not to be confused with a press screening of the completed film, a test screening of an animated movie includes not only the completed parts but also storyboards and unfinished animation.

Fire's positive account just sent my heart racing. He writes, in part:
"The movie plot was completely original but somewhat dark with many adult themes (aging, loss, separation and unfinished promises). Both my wife and I welled up at a few scenes..."

Oops, sorry. I seem to have blacked out for a minute from the excitement and hit my head on the keyboard :)

Glad to see Pixar movies are starting to use adult themes.

I mean they were always fun for adults to watch which was the great thing anout them. But Wall-e's mature elements made the film great and made us more attached to the characters so I'm hoping this'll turn out great as well!
