Seventy-eight year old Carl Fredricksen travels to Paradise Falls in his home equipped with balloons, inadvertently taking a young stowaway.
Russell is Pixar's first Japanese/Asian-American character voiced by an Asian-American actor, Jordan Nagai.
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 ...
Carl's house starts flying at the moment when he releases the balloons from the chimney; assuming that all balloons were already inflated and stored inside the house, this should have made the house float hours before already, regardless of whether they are inside or outside the house. However, it appears the balloons were in a giant sack in the backyard, and could have either been tethered down securely, or compressed to reduce lift.
The closing credits are presented as text typed in a scrapbook, with photographs and mementos taped onto the pages.
