From release/information:

The folks at Disney/Pixar are very happy today.

The Cannes Film Festival has announced that the studio's new movie, Up, will open the festival on May 13. In Up, 78-year-old Carl Fredricksen fulfills his dream of a great adventure when he ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away to the wilds of South America, only to discover that he has brought with him his biggest nightmare, a 9-year-old Wilderness Explorer stowaway. It's the first time an animated film has opened Cannes, the first 3D film to open Cannes and Disney's first opening night film ever.
