Disney has announced that Pixar’s “Dug Days: Carl’s Date” will now release in theaters along with the new animated “Elemental” film. The short was originally scheduled to premiere on Disney+ on February 10th but never arrived on the streamer.
You can check out the poster for “Carl’s Date” below:
The new short, “Carl’s Date,” catches up with Carl Fredricksen (voiced by Ed Asner) and his lovable talking dog, Dug (voiced by Bob Peterson), who were introduced in Pixar’s Oscar®-winning feature Up. Written and directed by Emmy® Award winner Peterson and produced by Kim Collins, 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” and “Elemental” arrive in theatres on June 16, 2023.
