As if you weren't already champing at the bit to see UP, but here's an extra reason to rush to the cinema. Partly Cloudy is the new Pixar short that screens before the feature and it is, quite simply, delightful.
Harking back to the days of Dumbo, or even Lambert the Sheepish Lion, Partly Cloudy tells the tale of cloud-come-baby sculptor, Gus and his trusty delivery stalk Peck. Alas Gus has quite a talent for creating the feistier of Mother Nature's species, and so Peck must fulfill his duty under increasingly challenging circumstances!

I think I may have run out of superlatives for Pixar. So to director Peter Sohn and his crew I shall simply say, bravo! Bravo indeed!
