Pixar Animation Studios released a trailer for Carl’s Date. Opening exclusively in theaters on Friday, June 16, in front of Disney and Pixar’s Elemental, Carl’s Date marks a return to the studio’s tradition of pairing its feature films with animated shorts on the big screen.
Written and directed by Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® Award winner Bob Peterson, and produced by Kim Collins, Carl’s Date goes home with Carl Fredricksen (voiced by Ed Asner) and his lovable talking dog, Dug (voiced by Peterson), who were introduced in Pixar’s Oscar®-winning feature Up. Carl reluctantly agrees to go on a date with a lady friend—but admittedly has 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.
“Elemental” is an all-new, original feature film set in Element City, where Fire-, Water-, Earth- and Air-residents live together.

Directed by Peter Sohn, produced by Denise Ream, p.g.a., and executive produced by Pete Docter, “Elemental” features a screenplay by John Hoberg & Kat Likkel and Brenda Hsueh with story by Sohn, Hoberg & Likkel and Hsueh. The film’s original score was composed and conducted by Thomas Newman.
