Pixar's next short, PARTLY CLOUDY (to play proceeding UP) is an up-in-the-skies fable about how storks and cloud people work together to deliver babies of all shapes, sizes and species.
"Everyone knows that the stork delivers babies, but where do the storks get the babies from? The answer lies up in the stratosphere, where cloud people sculpt babies from clouds and bring them to life. Gus, a lonely and insecure grey cloud, is a master at creating "dangerous" babies. Crocodiles, porcupines, rams and more -- Gus's beloved creations are works of art, but more than a handful for his loyal delivery stork partner, Peck. As Gus's creations become more and more rambunctious, Peck's job gets harder and harder. How will Peck manage to handle both his hazardous cargo and his friend's fiery temperament?"
Announced officially along with many other pieces of news at Tuesday's Disney investor's conference, PARTLY CLOUDY is directed by Peter Sohn and produced by Kevin Reher.
UP will debut May 29 in theaters.
