** After the house lands, the rest of the film is a succession of Chekhov's Guns being fired. First, [[spoiler:the Adventure Book appears again, and Carl finally turns the page. Then Russell uses the balloons and leaf-blower. Dug hides under the porch, as Russell did earlier. Dug uses "point!" again, followed by "who wants the ball?". Dug ends up fighting Alpha, and utilizes the cone of shame -- Alpha's higher voice returns. Carl uses the Wilderness Explorer call to motivate Russell in climbing the hose. Russell then uses '''SQUIRREL!''' Finally, the chocolate returns]].

Added DiffLines:

* RecurringCameraShot: One occurs during the marriage life montage at the beginning, as the couple are going up to their hill in the park with the tree on it, first with Ellie running up to it with Carl lagging behind, then as an elderly couple with Carl at the top and Ellie, who is beginning to fall ill, running behind right before she collapses.

* ShootTheShaggyDog: Charles' life becomes this. He starts off as a brilliant inventor and famous explorer, goes to this paradise and brings back a skeleton of an exotic creature, only to be called a fraud, be stripped of his title, and when he goes to clear his name, he gets [[spoiler: stuck there for decades, loses a lot of his dogs, spoiler:goes completely nuts, and when he finally has a chance to bring back proof he ends up getting killed. And even if he ''did'' succeed, everyone he was trying to prove himself to would be long dead, and the modern day community would condemn him for killing or capturing an endangered species, and for his antiquated GreatWhiteHunter tendencies]].

* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: WW1 era fighter planes whose guns seem to otherwise act like normal weapons shoot darts. The in-world logic is that the planes were designed for a NonLethalKO of Kevin, given that we see them earlier in the traps. Interestingly, in the climax they go to the detail of showing the copper shell ejecting and damage to the house from [[spoiler:Muntz]]'s rifle.
** In a case of RealityIsUnrealistic, one model of WW1 airplane was deployed with darts. Just instead of darts-guns, the darts were to be dropped from above in the hope of deflating and crashing the enemies airships.[[http://www.cracked.com/article_19349_the-top-8-unintentionally-hilarious-vehicles-ridden-into-war.html]]

** Ellie means "shining light", which leads to FridgeBrilliance in the scenes following her death. When Carl is alone in bed and later by the table, the sun is shining where Ellie used to be, literally symbolizing how the "light" of his life is gone.

''Up'' is {{Pixar}}'s tenth film and their first full-length [[UsefulNotes/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.

For information about the short ''Partly Cloudy'', which played before the film, see PixarShorts. For the unrelated Granada/BBC documentary series, see ''Series/{{Up}}''.
