‘THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF DISNEY’ SOARS INTO THIRD WEEK WITH DISNEY AND PIXAR’S ‘UP,’ WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3
“The Wonderful World of Disney” continues with Disney and Pixar’s Academy Award®-winning “Up,” WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. Winner of two Academy Awards including Best Animated Feature, Disney and Pixar’s “Up” centers on 78-year-old Carl Fredrickson, a retired balloon salesman who is part rascal, part dreamer and ready for his last chance at high-flying excitement. Tying thousands of balloons to his house, Carl sets off to the lost world of his childhood dreams. Unbeknownst to Carl, Russell, an overeager 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer who has never ventured beyond his backyard, is in the wrong place at the wrong time – Carl’s front porch! The world’s most unlikely duo reaches new heights and meets fantastic friends like Dug, a dog with a special collar that allows him to speak, and Kevin, the rare 13-foot-tall flightless bird. Stuck together in the wilds of the jungle, Carl realizes that sometimes life’s unexpected adventures are the most rewarding ones.
