Plot

Carl Fredricksen (Jeremy Leary) is a shy and quiet boy who has long idolized renowned explorer Charles F. Muntz (Christopher Plummer). He learns, however, that Muntz was accused of fabricating a giant bird skeleton he had discovered in Paradise Falls, South America, forcing him to return there to capture one alive. One day, Carl befriends an energetic tomboy named Ellie (Elizabeth Docter), who is also a Muntz fan. Detailing her ambitions in her personal scrapbook, she tells Carl of her desire to move her clubhouse to a majestic waterfall cliff in Paradise Falls, and makes him promise to help her, which he does.
Carl and Ellie eventually get married and grow old together in the house where they first met, working as a toy balloon vendor and a zookeeper, respectively. Unable to have children, they repeatedly try to save up for the trip to Paradise Falls, but other financial obligations arise. Just as they're finally about to make the voyage, Ellie becomes ill and dies, leaving Carl a lonely and bitter widower.
As the years pass, the city grows around the now elderly Carl's (Edward Asner) house. Refusing to move, he soon ends up in a tussle with a construction worker over his broken mailbox, resulting in a court order to move him into a retirement home. However, he comes up with a scheme to keep his promise to Ellie: he turns his house into a makeshift airship, using tens of thousands of helium balloons to lift it off its foundations. A young Wilderness Explorer, Russell (Jordan Nagai), is accidentally trapped on Carl's porch after trying to earn his final merit badge for "assisting the elderly".
After getting caught in a thunderstorm, they find themselves landing near a large ravine facing Paradise Falls. With their body weight keeping it from floating away, Carl and Russell harness themselves to the house and begin to walk around the ravine, hoping to reach the falls before the balloons deflate. They later encounter a tall and colorful flightless bird, who is trying to return to her chicks. Russell names the bird Kevin and makes Carl promise to help return her safely to her brood. The group then meets a dog named Dug (Bob Peterson), who wears a special collar that allows him to speak. They later learn that his owner is an elderly Charles Muntz, who has spent many years in Paradise Falls trying to capture a giant bird (who happens to be Kevin).
Muntz invites Carl and Russell onto his dirigible, where Russell innocently reveals his friendship with Kevin. Muntz suddenly turns on the pair, who flee with Kevin and Dug from his army of vicious dogs, during which Kevin is injured in the escape. As they try to get her back home, Muntz catches up with them, then starts a fire beneath Carl's house, forcing Carl to save it over Kevin. Muntz promptly takes the bird and departs. Carl eventually reaches the falls, but Russell has become angry with Carl over his betrayal.
.Finally settled into his home, Carl is sadly pondering over Ellie's childhood scrapbook when, to his surprise, he discovers photos of their married life added in the formerly blank pages, and a final note from Ellie encouraging him to go on a new adventure.^ Stand Up New York - Home - Report Spam New York’s Premiere Comedy Club, Stand Up New York - you never know who’s going to stop by.

Invigorated, he goes to find Russell, only to see him flying away with some balloons to rescue Kevin by himself. Carl lightens the weight of his house by dumping his old furniture and other sentimental possessions, allowing him to give chase.
Russell ends up being captured, but Carl arrives just in time to save him and free Kevin. Muntz then pursues them around the airship until he manages to corner Dug, Kevin, and Russell with a hunting rifle inside the house, while Carl is outside trying to anchor it down. Carl then lures Kevin through a window with a chocolate bar, as Dug and Russell hang onto her back. Muntz leaps out after them, only to snag his foot on some balloon lines and falls to his death. Snapped from its tether, the house descends below the clouds and out of sight.
Carl takes Muntz's dirigible, returning Kevin to her chicks, then flying back to the city. When Russell's father misses his son's Senior Explorer ceremony, Carl fulfills that role himself, to proudly present Russell with his final badge: the grape soda cap badge that Ellie gave to Carl when they first met. Russell and Carl become friends, and Dug makes Carl his new master. As the three set out on many new adventures, the house is shown to have landed perfectly on the cliff over Paradise Falls.

Cast and characters

  • Edward Asner as Carl, a stereotypical old man and the protagonist of the film. He is complete with hearing-aid and walking cane and is portrayed as sour and reclusive, beset on all sides by the loneliness intrinsic to his status as a widower, which in turn has made him obsessed with preserving his home and its environs as a monument to his late wife, showing his amiable amount of dedication. In the early stages of the film, however, Carl is introduced during the 1930s as a wide-eyed boy and aspiring explorer with dreams of following in the footsteps of his hero, famed adventurer Charles Muntz. After watching a news reel about Charles in a local theater, Carl happens upon a decrepit and seemingly abandoned house; to his surprise, a young and rambunctious Ellie, seeking to emulate the workings of Muntz's iconic dirigible, has converted the ruin into a grand club house. The two are fast friends and eventually marry despite the obvious contrast between Carl's conservative timidity and Ellie's eccentric enthusiasm. Excluding a montage detailing their married lives (and showing Carl to have actually been extremely optimistic and caring for the duration), the film deals primarily with the events occurring after Ellie's death: in the main, Carl's attempts to make good on a promise he made to her when the two were still children. By the terms of this promise, and facing forced placement into a local retirement home, Carl resolves to relocate their clubhouse (by then their actual residence) to the summit of Paradise Falls, South America, by literally airlifting it there by use of the very same party balloons he spent his life selling at the zoo where Ellie worked. Docter and Rivera noted Asner's television alter-ego Lou Grant had been helpful in writing for Carl, because it guided them in balancing likable and unlikeable aspects of the curmudgeonly character.[9] When they met Asner and presented him with a model of his character, he joked "I don't look anything like that." They would tailor his dialogue for him, with short sentences and more consonants, which "cemented the notion that Carl, post-Ellie, is a disgruntled bear that's been poked awake during hibernation".[10]
  • Jordan Nagai as Russell, a Wilderness Explorer stowaway on Carl's flying house.[11] He accompanies Carl in order to earn his "assisting the elderly" badge: the only one he doesn't have. Though he has never really been to the wilderness, he is depressed that his father is always too busy to spend time with him; on their journey, Russell makes a comment to Carl that suggests that Russell's father and mother are no longer together.[12] Russell's design was based on Pixar animator Peter Sohn.[13] Docter auditioned 400 boys in a nationwide casting call for the part.[14] Nagai, who is Japanese-American,[15] showed up to an audition with his brother, who was actually the one auditioning. Docter realized Nagai behaved and spoke non-stop like Russell and chose him for the part.[16] Nagai was 8 years old when cast.[14] Docter encouraged Nagai to act physically as well as vocally when recording the role, lifting him upside down and tickling him for the scene where Russell encounters Kevin.[10] Asian Americans have positively noted Pixar's first casting of an Asian lead character,[17] in contrast to the common practice of casting non-Asians in Asian parts.[18]
  • Bob Peterson as Dug, a talking golden retriever[19] with a collar that translates his thoughts into comical-sounding languages (when Russell plays with the collar). He is the odd duck out of a pack of dogs with similar collars owned by Muntz. All dogs of the pack are easily distracted by the mere mention of squirrels. Peterson knew he would voice Dug when he wrote his line "I have just met you, and I love you," which was based on what a child told him when he was a camp counselor in the 1980s. When Alpha is snared in the airship's steering wheel and put in a "dog cone of shame", Dug is declared Alpha, but he is still called (and still likes to be called) Dug. In the closing credits of the film Dug is shown to have had puppies with an unnamed female dog that strongly resembles him. The DVD release of the film features a short called Dug's Special Mission which shows the special mission Alpha gave to Dug during his stay in Paradise Falls. Dug previously appeared in Ratatouille as a shadow on a wall that barks at Remy.[19]
    • Peterson also voices Alpha, a talking Doberman Pinscher[19] and the leader of Muntz's pack of dogs. Pete Docter has stated that Alpha "thinks of himself as Clint Eastwood", but despite his menacing appearance, a malfunction in his collar occasionally causes his voice to sound comically high-pitched and squeaky, as if he had been breathing helium. The normal voice for his translator chip is a resonant, intimidating bass; Russell notes that he likes the faulty voice better. With both voices, Alpha has a roundabout speech pattern that causes his sentences to be longer than necessary. It should be noted that Alpha is the character's rank in the pack, as well as his name. At the end of the film, Alpha is shown to have returned with Carl to the US and is seen both at Russell's graduation ceremony with cone still attached and at the end credits along with Carl and the other dogs in a senior center.
  • Pete Docter as vocalizations for Kevin, a large, flightless tropical bird. Russell impulsively gives the bird a male name, only later learning that Kevin is female. Near the end of the film, it is shown that Kevin has three baby tropical birds[20] The bird's iridescent appearance is based upon the male Himalayan Monal Pheasant,[21] although its physical appearance is more similar to the prehistoric flightless bird Kelenken.
  • Christopher Plummer as Charles F. Muntz, the main antagonist. He was an adventurer Carl and Ellie admired when they were children.[22] He departed for South America after scientists claimed he had faked his discovery of the skeleton of a 13-foot tall bird (Kevin's species), vowing to find a living specimen. Unfortunately, the countless years he spent there has made him greedy, paranoid and homicidal, believing anyone who came to Paradise Falls was after the bird to steal his glory; he then murders them. He is an avid dog lover and inventor, being able to train them to do practically anything, and has invented devices that translate their thoughts into speech. He mans the airship Spirit of Adventure, which also serves as his home during his long stay in South America. The airship has been customized to his liking, equipped with dog walkers, a mini-museum of creatures he has acquired in his adventures, and small docks for biplanes. The name of the ship may have been inspired by Charles Lindbergh's plane Spirit of St. Louis.[19] Pete Docter compared Muntz to Charles Lindbergh and Howard Hughes.[11]
  • Elizabeth Docter as Ellie, a young girl always seen to be in a hyperactive state. She quickly becomes best friends with Carl when he stumbles upon her clubhouse (which was then a dilapidated old home). After many years of being best friends, Ellie and Carl later fell in love and got married, and remained happily so despite their inability to have children. Even as adults, the couple continued to relive aspects of their childhood adventures, from turning the clubhouse into their permanent residence, to their work together in the South American section of the city zoo, to the reenactment of their promise to travel to Paradise Falls (which was never fulfilled). Although Ellie has no speaking lines through her adult years, it is clear that she retained much of the exuberance and energy of her youth. She passes away prior to the film's events, inspiring Carl to go on his journey. The voice actor is the director's daughter,[23] who also provided some of the drawings shown by Ellie.[24]
  • Jeremy Leary as Young Carl, Ellie's husband as a child who, at the time, was very timid and shy. He and Ellie became best friends after he wandered into her clubhouse.
  • Delroy Lindo as Beta, a Rottweiler,[19] and a member of Muntz's pack of talking dogs.
  • Jerome Ranft as Gamma, a Bulldog,[19] and a member of Muntz's pack of talking dogs. Jerome is brother to the late Joe Ranft and also part of Pixar Animation.
  • John Ratzenberger as Tom, a construction worker who asks if Carl is ready to sell his home.[19]
  • David Kaye as the newsreel announcer.
  • Mickie McGowan as Police Officer Edith, a police officer who gives Carl a court order to move into a retirement home.
  • Danny Mann as Construction Worker Steve, a construction worker with whom Carl gets into a fight.
  • Donald Fullilove as Nurse George, a nurse sent to pick up Carl and take him to a retirement home.
  • Jess Harnell as Nurse AJ, a nurse sent to pick up Carl and take him to a retirement home.
  • Josh Cooley as Omega.
  • Pete Docter as Campmaster Strauch, Russell's campmaster seen at the end of the film.
Additional characters were voiced by Mark Andrews, Bob Bergen, Brenda Chapman, Emma Coats, John Cygan, Paul Eiding, Tony Fucile, Teresa Ganzel, Valerie LaPointe, Laraine Newman, Teddy Newton, Jeff Pidgeon, Jan Rabson, and Bob Scott.

Production

The main character Carl Fredricksen is partially based on Spencer Tracy.[25]
The fantasy of a flying house was born out from director Pete Docter's thoughts about escaping from life when it becomes too irritating,[11][14] which he explained stemmed from his difficulty with social situations growing up.[26] Writing began in 2004. Actor and writer Thomas McCarthy aided Docter and Bob Peterson in shaping the story for about three months.[16] Docter selected an old man for the main character after drawing a picture of a grumpy old man with smiling balloons.[16] The two men thought an old man was a good idea for a protagonist because they felt their experiences and the way they affect their view of the world was a rich source of humor. Docter was not concerned with an elderly protagonist, stating children would relate to Carl in the way they relate to their grandparents.[11]
Docter noted the film reflects his friendships with Disney veterans Frank Thomas, Ollie Johnston and Joe Grant (who all died before the film's release and thus the film was dedicated to them). Grant gave the script his approval as well as some advice before his death in 2005.[27] Docter recalled Grant would remind him the audience needed an "emotional bedrock" because of how wacky the adventure would become; in this case it is Carl mourning for his wife.[16] Docter felt Grant's personality influenced Carl's deceased wife Ellie more than the grouchy main character,[27] and Carl was primarily based on Spencer Tracy and Walter Matthau, because there was "something sweet about these grumpy old guys".[25] Docter and Jonas Rivera noted Carl's charming nature in spite of his grumpiness derives from the elderly "hav[ing] this charm and almost this 'old man license' to say things that other people couldn’t get away with [...] It's like how we would go to eat with Joe Grant and he would call the waitresses 'honey'. I wish I could call a waitress 'honey'."[28]
The filmmakers' first story outline had Carl "just want[ing] to join his wife up in the sky," Docter said. "It was almost a kind of strange suicide mission or something. And obviously that's [a problem]. Once he gets airborne, then what? So we had to have some goal for him to achieve that he had not yet gotten."[23] Docter created Dug as he felt it would be refreshing to show what a dog thinks, rather than what people assume it thinks.[29] The idea derived from thinking about what would happen if someone broke a record player and it always played at a low pitch.[16] Russell was added to the story at a later date than Dug and Kevin;[16] his presence, as well as the construction workers, helped to make the story feel less episodic.[23]
.Carl's relationship with Russell reflects how "he's not really ready for the whirlwind that a kid is, as few of us are".[27] Docter added he saw Up as a "coming of age" tale and an "unfinished love story", with Carl still dealing with the loss of his wife.^ Up (2009) - Report Spam Plot: In this "coming of old age" story, a seventysomething hero, alongside his clueless wilderness ranger sidekick, travels the globe, fighting beasts and villains, and eating ...

[30] He cited inspiration from Casablanca and A Christmas Carol, which are both "resurrection" stories about men who lose something, and regain purpose during their journey.[31] Docter and Rivera cited inspiration from the Muppets, Hayao Miyazaki, Dumbo and Peter Pan. They also saw parallels to The Wizard of Oz and tried to make Up not feel too similar.[32] There is a scene where Carl and Russell haul the floating house through the jungle. A Pixar employee compared the scene to Fitzcarraldo, and Docter watched that film and The Mission for further inspiration.[33]
The character Charles Muntz, who resembles Kirk Douglas,[34] comes actually from Howard Hughes and Errol Flynn.[35] An inspiration for the name of this character was cartoon producer Charles B. Mintz, who stole Walt Disney's hit character Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, forcing Disney to create replacement character Mickey Mouse. Mintz, like Muntz, did get his comeuppance in real life.[36]
Docter and eleven other Pixar artists visited tepuis in Venezuela in 2004 for research
Docter made Venezuela the film's setting after Ralph Eggleston gave him a video of the tepui mountains.[11][27] In 2004, Docter and eleven other Pixar artists spent three days reaching Monte Roraima by airplane, jeep and helicopter.[19] They spent three nights there painting and sketching,[37] and encountering dangerous ants, mosquitos, scorpions, frogs and snakes. They also flew to Matawi Tepui and climbed to Angel Falls,[19] as well as Brazil. Docter felt "we couldn't use [the rocks and plants we saw]. Reality is so far out, if we put it in the movie you wouldn't believe it."[25] The film's creatures were also challenging to design because they had to fit in the surreal environment of the tepuis, but also be realistic because those mountains exist in real life.[27] The filmmakers visited Sacramento Zoo to observe a Himalayan Monal Pheasant for Kevin's animation.[1] The animators designed Russell as an Asian-American, and modeled Russell after similar looking Peter Sohn, a Pixar storyboarder who voiced Emile in Ratatouille and directed the short Partly Cloudy, because of his energetic nature.[14][38]
Docter wanted to push a stylized feel, particularly the way Carl's head is proportioned: he has a squarish appearance to symbolize his containment within his house, while Russell is rounded like a balloon.[10] The challenge on Up was making these stylized characters feel natural,[11] although Docter remarked the effect came across better than animating the realistic humans from Toy Story, who suffered from the "uncanny valley".[27] Cartoonists Al Hirschfeld, Hank Ketcham and George Booth influenced the human designs.[16][22][31] Simulating realistic cloth on caricatured humans was harder than creating the 10,000 balloons flying the house.[26] New programs were made to simulate the cloth and for Kevin's iridescent feathers.[20] To animate old people, Pixar animators would study their own parents or grandparents and also watched footage of the Senior Olympics.[9]
A technical director worked out that in order to make Carl's house fly, he would require 23 million balloons, but Docter realized that number made the balloons look like small dots. Instead, the balloons created were made to be twice Carl's size.[39] There are 10,927 balloons for shots of the house just flying, 20,622 balloons for the lift-off sequence, and it varies in other scenes.[19]

Music

Up is the third Pixar film to be scored by Michael Giacchino, after The Incredibles and Ratatouille. Giacchino wrote a character theme-based score that the filmmakers felt enhanced the story of the film. At the beginning of the movie, when young Carl is in the movie theater watching a newsreel about Muntz, the first piece of music heard is "Muntz's Theme", which starts out as a celebratory theme, and echoes through the film when Muntz reappears 70 years later. "Ellie's Theme" is first heard when she is introduced as a little kid and plays several times during the film in different versions; for instance, during the sequence where Carl lifts his house with the balloons, the theme is changed from a simple piano melody to a full orchestral arrangement. Giacchino has compared the film to opera since each character has their own theme that changes in shift during a particular moment in the story. There are several examples of character themes changing in emotional shift during the movie:
  • When Carl meets Muntz, a romantic version of "Muntz's Theme" expresses Carl's joy in finally meeting his hero.
  • When Muntz lifts his lamp and shows "the wall", "Muntz's Theme" plays in a minor key with a lot of dissonance to express his twisted nature.
  • At the end of the film, during the climactic battle between Carl and Muntz, the orchestra plays "Ellie's Theme vs. Muntz's Theme."
This type of compositional technique is called thematic transformation, a technique pioneered by Ludwig van Beethoven and Franz Liszt, and is commonly used among large-scaled classical music compositions, in which more than one theme is involved and related together in a single piece of music.
The score was released as a digital download on May 26, 2009, three days before the film opened in theaters. It won the Academy Award for Best Original Score, the Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack Album, the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score and the 2010 BAFTA Award for Best Film Music.

Among the children's books published in conjunction with the film is My Name is Dug, illustrated by screenwriter Ronnie del Carmen.[41] Despite Pixar's track record, Target Corporation and Wal-Mart will stock few Up items, while Pixar's regular collaborator Thinkway Toys will not produce merchandise, claiming its story is unusual and will be hard to promote. Disney acknowledged not every Pixar film would have to become a franchise.[1] Promotional partners include Aflac,[42] NASCAR and Airship Ventures,[43][44] while Cluster Balloons will promote the film with a replica of Carl's couch that will be lifted by hot air balloons, that journalists can sit in.[45]
In Colombia, unexpected publicity for the film was generated due to the uncanny similarity of Carl Fredricksen with Colombian ex-president Julio César Turbay Ayala.[46][47]
Director Pete Docter intended for audiences to take a specific point from the film, saying:
Basically, the message of the film is that the real adventure of life is the relationship we have with other people, and it's so easy to lose sight of the things we have and the people that are around us until they're gone. More often than not, I don't really realize how lucky I was to have known someone until they're either moved or passed away. .So, if you can kind of wake up a little bit and go, "Wow, I've got some really cool stuff around me every day", then that's what the movie's about.^ Hey, Wake Up Frankie is all about cutting edge fashion for your room.

[54] The film also holds a score of 88 on the review aggregator website Metacritic as of August 1, 2009 (2009 -08-01).[55] Film critic Roger Ebert has awarded the film four out of four stars.[56]
The Hollywood Reporter lauded the film as "Winsome, touching and arguably the funniest Pixar effort ever, this gorgeously rendered, high-flying adventure is a tidy 90-minute distillation of all the signature touches that came before it."[57]
Although the San Francisco Chronicle noted that the film "contains many boring stretches of mindless freneticism and bland character interaction," it also declared that there are scenes in Up of "Such beauty, economy and poetic wisdom that they belong in any anthology of great movie moments...to watch Up with any attention is to be moved and astonished by the economy with which specific visuals are invested with emotion throughout [the film]..."[58]
.Variety enthused that "Up is an exceptionally refined picture; unlike so many animated films, it's not all about sensory bombardment and volume...Unsurprisingly, no one puts a foot wrong here.^ Hey, Wake Up Frankie is all about cutting edge fashion for your room.

Vocal performances...exude a warm enthusiasm, and tech specifications could not be better. Michel Giacchino's full-bodied, traditional score is superlative..."[59]
Dug, the talking canine, was awarded the Palm Dog Award by the British film critics as the best canine performance at Cannes Film Festival. Dug beat out the fox from Antichrist and the black poodle from Inglourious Basterds.[60]
In addition to the positive critical reviews the film received, Up highlights Pixar's corporate image as an altruistic company through its charitable acts. In June 2009, a 10-year-old girl from Huntington Beach, California was suffering from the final stages of terminal vascular cancer. It is reported her dying wish was to "live to see the movie" despite the advanced stage of her disease. However, due to her deteriorating condition, the girl was unable to leave the family home. As a result, a family friend contacted Pixar and arranged for a private screening. A Pixar employee flew to the Huntington Beach home with various Up tie-in toys and a DVD copy of the film. The child could not open her eyes, so her mother described the film to her scene by scene. The young girl died approximately seven hours after the screening ended.[61]

This was a stronger return than analysts had been expecting.[62] The film had a small drop-off of 35% over its second weekend, earning another $44,244,000.[63] Initial estimates projected the film holding on to the #1 spot in its second weekend, but revised figures placed it in second, less than $1M behind the Warner Bros. comedy The Hangover, but over $25M ahead of the Will Ferrell remake of Land of the Lost.[64] In its third weekend, the film experienced an even smaller decline of just 30%, again trailing The Hangover by just a few million to place second.[65] Making $30,762,280 that weekend, it is the eleventh biggest third weekend ever for a film.[66] .As of December 20, 2009 (2009 -12-20), the film has a total of $293 million in the United States and Canada and $430 million in other territories for a world-wide gross of $723 million.^ NetZero is available in more than 6,000 cities across the United States and in Canada.
