Partly CloudyCourtesy of AICN comes this image from the Disney/Pixar short Partly Cloudy that will play in theaters prior to UP.

Welcome to the world of clouds, where every cloud creates cute, cuddly babies that get delivered to their families by storks.  Every cloud, that is, but Gus.  Gus is the littlest cloud and only knows how to make snapping alligators and spiky porcupines.  Ouch!  For Peck, Gus’s stork and best friend, this means the job can be quite painful.  But as Peck and Gus soon discover, sometimes all you need is a little teamwork and you can weather anything!

First Look: Poster for Disney’s Old Dogs (John Travolta, Robin Williams)

Old Dogs PosterTwo best friends — one unlucky-in-love divorcee (ROBIN WILLIAMS) and the other a fun-loving bachelor (JOHN TRAVOLTA) — have their lives turned upside down when they’re unexpectedly charged with the care of six-year-old twins while on the verge of the biggest business deal of their lives. The not-so-kid-savvy bachelors stumble in their efforts to take care of the twins (newcomers ELLA BLEU TRAVOLTA and CONNER RAYBURN), leading to one debacle after another, and perhaps to a new-found understanding of what’s really important in life.

Opens November 25.
