Throwback Thursday: Pixar’s Up

Pixar's Up

When Up was first announced, I was one of the many folks who thought this would be Pixar’s first flop. Boy were we wrong about that. It’s a charming tale throughout, where the adventure isn’t just one of geography. Since Up is a movie about life, love, humanity and adventure, you will cry, laugh and scream.

Product description:

From the revolutionary minds of Pixar Animation Studios and the acclaimed director of MONSTERS, INC. comes a hilariously uplifting adventure where the sky is no longer the limit. Carl Fredricksen, a retired balloon salesman, is part rascal, part dreamer who is ready for his last chance at high-flying excitement. Tying thousands of balloons to his house, Carl sets off to the lost world of his childhood dreams. Unbeknownst to Carl, Russell, an overeager 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer who has never ventured beyond his backyard, is in the wrong place at the wrong time — Carl’s front porch! The world’s most unlikely duo reach new heights and meet fantastic friends like Dug, a dog with a special collar that allows him to speak, and Kevin, a rare 13-foot tall flightless bird. Stuck together in the wilds of the jungle, Carl realizes that sometimes life’s biggest adventures aren’t the ones you set out looking for. Including the hilarious short film “Dug’s Special Mission,” UP reaches new heights on Blu-ray(TM) and DVD. “You will want to see it again and again,” raves Christopher Kelly of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. It’s adventure that will send your spirits soaring!
