In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
As a boy, Carl Fredricksen wanted to explore South America and find the forbidden Paradise Falls. About 64 years later he gets to begin his journey along with Boy Scout Russell by lifting his house with thousands of balloons. On their journey, they make many new friends including a talking dog, and figure out that someone has evil plans. Carl soon realizes that this evildoer is his childhood idol.
One of Carl's brochures for Paradise Falls has an image based on the Sunny Miami figurine from Knick Knack (1989). See more »
The age time-lines of the characters don't add up. When we see Carl as a child, Charles Muntz is a late middle aged man. But when they meet, they are about the same age. This is because the plot was slightly different in an earlier version of the movie. In that version, the birds' eggs would keep you alive for ever if you ate them, which is why Muntz was so interested in the bird, and the reason why he is still alive when Carl meets him. Pixar eventually decided to drop the concept about the eggs, but by then it was too late to change the part about Muntz still being alive and healthy. So they kept him in the final version and deliberately ignored that he should actually have been decades older than Carl. See more »

I was luckily able to catch a screening a few weeks ago here in Houston.
As an avid lover of Wall-E, I felt Pixar could never reach those heights again.
I was wrong.
UP's story will probably seem peculiar at first glance. An old man as a protagonist? It definitely blew my expectations. The first 5 minutes demolished every other Pixar feature just because it was the first time I cried in a theater.
This just shows how much heart there is to the movie. I really don't want to get into specifics because of spoilers but the movie literally has everything.
Amazing visual effects.
Breath taking action.
All those combined equal something special. Today's movies like to blow you away with gimmicks, Pixar is different. Each movie shows soul and UP definitely has it.
I can't wait until it comes out so I can see it in 3d, im bringing everybody.
