78-year-old Carl Fredricksen travels to Paradise Falls in his house equipped with balloons, inadvertently taking a young stowaway.
Co-Director Bob Peterson based Dug's voice on how he'd tend to speak to his own dogs.
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 uses sails to propel and steer his house. While sails don't work if the balloon/house are moving at the same speed as the air mass, they do work whenever the wind changes speed or direction. The house has significant mass (weight) and so does not respond instantaneously to wind changes.
The closing credits are presented as text typed in a scrapbook, with photographs and mementos taped onto the pages.
