Up, Up, and away!!!

A house is hovering in the air, lifted by balloons. A dog, a boy, and an old man hang beneath on a garden hose. "UP" is written in the top right corner.Up is a 2009 American computer-animated comedy-adventure film produced by Pixar, distributed by Walt Disney Pictures and presented in Disney Digital 3-D. The film premiered on May 29, 2009 in North America and opened the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, becoming the first animated and 3D film to do so. The film was director Pete Docter's second film, the first being 2001's Monsters, Inc., and features the voices of Edward AsnerChristopher PlummerBob Peterson, and Jordan Nagai. It is Pixar's tenth feature film and the studio's first to be presented in Disney Digital 3-D, and is accompanied in theaters and DVD releases by the short film Partly Cloudy.
The film centers on an elderly widower named Carl Fredricksen and an earnest young Wilderness Explorer named Russell who fly to South America by floating in a house. The film has received universal critical acclaim, with a rating of 98% on Rotten Tomatoes (the best reviewed wide-released film of 2009 on the site), and grossed over $731 million worldwide,making it Pixar's third-most commercially successful film, behind Finding Nemo and Toy Story 3.

What do you think about that? It's an amazing movie for the whole family plus everyone get's a kick out of it.

A-Z Question:
Have you seen Up? If so, whats your favorite part? If you haven't seen it, why not?



  1. I know I'm in the minority, but this is not one of my favorite Pixar movies. It was just a little too depressing for me.

  2. I have yet to see it, but I reference the dog-translating collar all the time.


  3. Ooooh I love Up! I love all of the talking dogs, especially Doug :) It's very sad at the start, though!

  4. It sounds so adorable, and for as much money as it made, I am surprised I never heard of it until now. I really do live under a rock.
