Disney has today announced that Kevin from Disney•Pixar’s “Up!” will be appearing at Disney's Animal Kingdom in February 2019.

"UP!" has a growing presence at the park, with Senior Wilderness Explorer Russell and Dug greeting guests on Discovery Island, and appearing in the recently reworked bird show “UP! A Great Bird Adventure.”

My apologies, I didn't see the 'i' dotted with a heart.

This looks cool. Just keep any chocolate away. ;) We love Up!. I watch Dug's "squirrel joke" almost daily, I kid you not. I love his almost-evil "ha... haha...ha..." as he walks off.

With what hands??? 12, 2019

She's looks great. Meet and greets are cool but they really need more roaming characters in the parks too. Just choose ones that don't have to sign autographs

You assumed her gender. Kevin is a girl. Triggered!

Does he sign signature books?

So in a way, this is sort of like Lucky 2.0. With the explorers(?) walking him around. Very neat!

I like that it's walking around and not hidden inside a meet & greet!

I think UP is a great movie for Disney's Animal Kingdom. I think the Wilderness Explorer game around the parks is a great use of the property, I just wish they'd decide on either the movie or the Maharajah story line for the bird show. Mixing the two is a disjointed mess.

It's probably been said before but why not just bite the bullet and turn Dinoland USA into UP!'s Paradise Falls? "A South American land that Time Forgot!" Instead of continued IP integration and bombardment throughout the park just give them their own land and be done with it.

I'm sure while Good Dinosaur was in production, some concepts must have been made for it to be integrated / overlayed in some way in Dinoland
