After the death of his wife, a 78-year old former balloon salesman sets out to fulfill their lifelong dream of having adventures and reaching Paradise Falls.

Who is in it?

Carl Fredericksen opens the door and sees Russell who begins to recite a welcoming and introduction of his pursuit of a badge for “Assistance of the elderly” from a Wilderness explorer book. After shutting the door, he reopens seconds later, and Russell begins the piece again from the top. Carl attempts to close the door, but does so on Russell’s leg. Carl opens the door again, and Russell begins from the top once again.

Up is just another film that displays Disney’s excellence in regards to animated films. Up, similar to its plot, is an adventure that gives the viewer a great story, while including some simple, yet hilarious, comedy.
The characters in the film are well defined, and most importantly very creative. Such aspects such as the Dogs having translators around their necks that reflect a dog’s thinking makes Up awesome. The characters are also well defined with well told backgrounds and personality that brings the story to life and makes you feel for Carl and Russell on their adventure.
All of the awards, accolades, and hear-say that the film received is well deserved. Up is a phenomenal film that is must see.
