Quotes

Newsreel Announcer: 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 ...


Goofs

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.
