Movie Night: Up

May 12, 2011

On our April 29th movie night, we watched the Disney film Up.

From wikipedia: 

“Up is a 2009 computer-animated comedy-adventure film produced by Pixar Animation Studios, 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 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 overwhelmingly positive reviews, 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.”

A house is hovering in the air, lifted by balloons. A dog, a boy, and an old man hang beneath on a garden hose

This movie is adorable! It’s extremely charming, moving, and a lot of fun. I would highly recommend it for any age, and I see why it made the Top 250 list.

    Never mind the fact that Carl looks a lot like your grandfather! 🙂
