From Disney•Pixar comes “Up,” a comedy adventure about 78-year-old balloon salesman Carl Fredricksen, who finally fulfills his lifelong dream of a great adventure when he ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away to the wilds of South America. But he discovers all too late that his biggest nightmare has stowed away on the trip: an overly optimistic 9-year-old Wilderness Explorer named Russell.

From the Academy Award®-nominated director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.”), Disney•Pixar’s “Up” invites you on a hilarious journey into a lost world, with the least likely duo on Earth.

Fun Facts

John Ratzenberger is tapped yet again to lend his voice, this time as Construction Foreman Tom.
Ratzenberger is the only actor to voice a role in all of the Disney•Pixar films.
Award-winning composer Michael Giacchino has received numerous accolades for his work on previous Disney•Pixar films “Ratatouille” (GRAMMY® Award winner, Best Score Album Soundtrack; Annie Award winner, Best Music in an Animated Feature Production; Oscar® nomination, Best Original Score) and“The Incredibles” (Annie Award winner, Best Music in an Animated Feature Production; GRAMMY nomination, Best Score Album Soundtrack).
Up is the first Pixar film to be given a PG rating since The Incredibles.
When the house first takes off there are 20,622 balloons on the house.
Near the beginning of the movie you can spot the Pizza Planet truck from Toy Story on the street below the house, and also in a parking lot towards the end.
Apart from Dug, all of the dogs are named after letters from the Greek alphabet.


Russell: Sometimes, it's the boring stuff I remember the most.

Dug: I hid under your porch because I love you.

Ellie: Thanks for the adventure. Now go have one of your own.

Charles Muntz: You know Carl, these people who come here, they all tell pretty good stories. A surveyor making a map, a botanist cataloging plants, an old man taking his house to Paradise Falls. And that's the best one yet. I can't wait to hear how it ends.

"Our hero travels the globe, fights beasts and villains and eats dinner at 3:30 in the afternoon."


The number of balloons attached to the house change frequently throughout the movie.

The house door sometimes has 3 doorknobs, but other times has 4.

The ambulance that arrives when young Carl breaks his arm has a modern siren rather than the mechanical sirens used during the 1930s.

The flag on Russell's boy scout uniform should face backwards rather than forwards as it does.
