Veteran actor, Christopher Plummer, sadly passed away yesterday at the age of 91 due to complications from a fall.
Mr. Plummer (1929-2021) had a filmography of over 200 films including Battle of Britain, The Return of the Pink Panther, The Man Who Would Be King, Murder by Decree, Ordeal by Innocence, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Malcolm X, 12 Monkeys, National Treasure, Beginners, The Man Who Invented Christmas, All the Money in the World, and Knives Out. But his most famous role was arguably that of Captain Georg von Trapp in the 1965 musical film, The Sound of Music.
He was also no stranger to animation lending his voice to multiple animated films including An American Tail, Rock-a-Doodle, Babes in Toyland, My Dog Tulip, 9, The Legend of Sarila, and The Star. But, his most famous voice role was arguably that of the villainous explorer, Charles Muntz, in Pixar’s Up.
Our thoughts go out to his family and friends. He shall be missed.

I’m turning 23 next Sunday 💜
Happy early bday!
Sounds like a productive career. 91 is a great age. I knew I recognized the name from the credits to An American Tail as Henri, but I did not know he was also Muntz. I might have to see if I hear any of Muntz’s voice when I rewatch an American Tail like I do every February.
He did have a productive career indeed. In An American Tail, he uses a French accent, so it probably won’t sound like Muntz at all.
Just checked There was one happy line where I heard Muntz’s excitement at meeting Carl for the first time. That was it.
What a great legacy in film he leaves behind.
