Seventy-eight year old Carl Fredricksen travels to Paradise Falls in his home equipped with balloons, inadvertently taking a young stowaway.
The first Pixar film with the Luxo Jr. ball since The Incredibles (2004). Although, in The Incredibles (2004), it only appears in the short film, Jack Jack Attack, and it appears in an Alternate Opening of The Incredibles (2004). Up is on the other hand the first movie with the Pixar ball since Finding Nemo (2003).
Movietown News presents, "Spotlight on Adventure." What you are now witnessing is footage never before seen by civilized humanity: a lost world in South America. Lurking in the shadow of majestic Paradise Falls, it sports plants and animals ...
It is never shown how the balloon canopy was ever created or if it was done in a single night. It would be impossible for Carl Fredricksen to have done it himself or even be able to tie it down since it has the obvious ability to pull the house from it's foundations. There was no way that was depicted for Carl to know how many balloons were needed to be powerful enough to float his house, let alone lift it from it's foundations. Also, there is no mention of where the numerous empty tanks of helium that appear in his yard came from.
The closing credits are presented as text typed in a scrapbook, with photographs and mementos taped onto the pages.
