YesAsia Editorial Description

Pixar's latest CG-animated masterpiece Up finally takes flight on home video! The first Pixar production to be presented in 3D, Up was the opening film to the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, the first ever animated film to have such prestige. Despite Pixar's near perfect track record, the pairing of a grumpy old man and an Asian kid as the protagonists has raised certain concerns over the film's commercial prospect. But the film ended up winning unanimous critical acclaim and the second-highest box-office gross for the animation studio (behind only Finding Nemo), proving once again that storytelling is paramount, and that Pixar can seemingly do no wrong.

Co-written and co-directed by Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc.) and Bob Peterson (Finding Nemo), Up tells the emotionally uplifting story of retired balloon salesman Carl Fredricksen, who in his younger days promised to take his wife to explore the Paradise Falls in South America. Now a 78-year-old widower leading a lonely life, Carl decides one day to finally make good of his words - by tying thousands of balloons to the house to lift it up from the ground. What he didn't expect is that he has a surprise companion in 8-year-old Russell, who has stowed away inside his house. Together the duo flies southward, heading for the Paradise Falls, and the adventure of their lives...

Pixar - they do animation right
Ever since the premise of Up was known, this editor has been sold. Pixar's 2009 masterpiece is about a grumpy old man who gets out of his rut to embark on the journey of his life, all in honor of a promise he made to his wife before she died. If you think the subject matter sounds more at home with a Clint Eastwood starring vehicle than a Disney cartoon flick, you're not alone. It was deemed such a bold move for an animated pic to use a senior citizen as the main protagonist that certain financial analysts, advertisers, and toymakers sounded the alarm towards the prospect of the movie prior to its release, despite the proven success of Pixar's repertoire.

But what was proven, once again, is that Pixar's doubters were wrong. So far the animation powerhouse can turn anything into gold with their magical touch. Next time if they decide to make a movie about a fallen leaf or bird droppings or a piece of breadcrumb, we can safely bet that it will be a movie sparkling with family-friendly entertainment values and heartfelt emotions. And these qualities are what Up has in spades. In the opening sequence, a dialogueless montage of scenes introduces us to our hero Carl Fredricksen.

We see young Carl meeting the sassy girl Ellie, the two falling in love, their wedding, and the married life that followed. They both longed for adventures in the exotic South America, but that remained a dream throughout their marriage. And when the dream finally seemed about to be realized, Ellie got sick and kicked the bucket soon afterwards, leaving poor old Carl alone in his life. The couple's stories, their joy and woes, are effectively condensed into 10 minutes of pure animation genius, all told with breathtaking visuals and music rather than words. The enchanting beauty of the almost silent narrative in Wall.E makes a stylish return here - and that's just the prologue to the main story of Up.

The movie shifts its tone, abruptly but not jarringly, when the crutch-bound Carl is finally Up for the quest for South America. What ensues is a fantastical adventure as we follow Carl's flight inside his balloon-buoyed drifting house, with an eight-year-old Asian kid hitching along for the ride. From here on, the imagination of the Pixar animators kicks into overdrive. For instance, the talking animal - a staple of traditional children animations - is given a humorous take here that even the most cynical viewer would find disarmingly appealing.
