Inside the First 10 Minutes of Pixar’s Up
Pixar's 2009 movie Up is about an old man who ties balloons to his house and sails off for adventure. That was the basic premise, but the team behind the film knew they had to justify it with a backstory. Why would a grumpy old man decide to just take off? Where did he think he was going? And why use balloons? The answers to all those questions are in Ellie, who wasn't there but gave us all the reasons Carl did what he did. So they devised his life story, jammed into the first ten minutes of the movie. First there was the beginning, when he and Ellie met as children.
