“‘Carl’s Date,’ the short film preceding Pixar’s ‘Elemental,’ brings back the beloved characters from ‘Up’ in a touching story set entirely on a sidewalk. Ed Asner returns as Carl, who faces a nerve-wracking social encounter. With the comical advice of his loyal dog, Dug, the film strikes a balance between humor and emotion. It also serves as a sneaky introduction to the ‘Dug Days’ spinoff series. While enjoyable, the promotional aspect may overshadow ‘Elemental.’ Nevertheless, the clever script and Dug’s translation collar voice infuse the short with a unique bittersweet charm. This film reminds us of the evolving Disney content landscape, blending nostalgia with a forward-looking perspective. Visit HDtoday for more!
