* OlderThanTheyLook: Carl is old -- but Muntz was a grown man and veteran explorer when Carl was a little boy, and he makes references to going on safari with TheodoreRoosevelt. The film doesn't explicitly say, but Muntz must be well over a hundred.

* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Charles Muntz [[DisneyVillainDeath plummets to his death from an airship that is about 1000 feet above sea level]]. Interestingly, they sent a few helium-filled balloons down with him, presumably so that if the viewer so chose, one could imagine the villain catching those balloons and securing a softer landing.

''Up'' is {{Pixar}}'s tenth film and their first full-length [[ThreeDMovie 3-D film]]. It has the honor of being only the second animated film to be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, following ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''; it's also the first fully-CGI film to be honored with the nomination. While the film didn't win ''that'' award, it did get Pixar another Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film, as well as the Oscar for Best Original Score for composer Michael Giacchino.

* BloodierAndGorier: While not as extreme of as some examples of this trope, the fact that this film actually depicts blood no less than twice qualifies it for this trope in comparison to other movies from Disney and Pixar. The first instance of blood occurs towards the beginning of the movie when Carl accidentally hits the construction worker with his cane, causing a rather large splotch of blood to appear on his forehead. The second happens after Carl, Russell, Dug and Kevin escape from [[spoiler:Muntz's]] dogs; blood can be seen soaking through the bandage that Russell applies to Kevin's injured leg.

'''''Up''''' (2009) is the story of a septuagenarian named Carl Fredricksen (Creator/EdwardAsner) who had promised his wife, Ellie, that they would one day have an adventure and move to Paradise Falls in Venezuela like their childhood hero, Charles Muntz (Creator/ChristopherPlummer). However, life got in the way of them doing it -- repeatedly -- and she passed away before they could. Carl, guilt-ridden, shuts himself off from society in the house they built together. When land developers threaten and scheme to destroy their home, Carl decides to take action and fulfill his promise to his wife. Being a retired balloon man, he ties thousands of helium balloons -- the leftovers of his old trade -- to his house and sets off for Paradise Falls. He has an accidental stowaway in the person of Wilderness Explorer Russell (Jordan Nagai), who has been trying to earn his "Assisting the Elderly" badge by helping Carl.

* ThemeAndVariationsSoundtrack: The film's theme permeates throughout the soundtrack; it's used to indicate moods melancholic and adventurous, among others, such as when Carl reminisces over Ellie or musters the willpower to go on a new adventure.

* SmallNameBigEgo: By the time the film takes place, Muntz has largely been relegated to history if not outright forgotten, thanks in part to his previous humiliation over Paradise Falls. Even if he did bring Kevin back, few would approve of his methods at all, let alone ''care.''
