Characters from the new Disney-Pixar animated comedy “UP” made a surprise visit May 14, 2009 to Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The three characters — (L-R): Russell, an eight-year-old Wilderness Explorer; Carl Fredricksen, a 78-year-old balloon salesman; and Dug, a dog — pose in front of the park’s Sorcerer Hat icon. Beginning May 15, the three characters will make regular meet-and-greet appearances for guests inside the theme park’s “Magic of Disney Animation” attraction. “UP,” the 10th film from Disney-Pixar, debuts in U.S. theaters nationwide on May 29, 2009.
