In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
Carl Fredricksen as a boy wanted to explore South America and find the forbidden Paradise Falls. About 64 years later he gets to begin his journey along with a Boy Scout named Russel with help from 500 balloons. On their journey they discover many new friends including a talking dog and Carl and Russel figure out that someone evil plans. Carl soon realizes that this evildoer is his childhood idol. Will they be able to defeat him and will they find Paradise Falls?
A subplot involving Carl keeping one of Kevin's eggs (which could reverse the aging process) from Charles Muntz was conceived in the early stages of production, but never scripted, due to it being (in director Pete Docter's words) "too bizarre". See more »
The phrase "Jiminy Cricket" was used in common slang as a euphemism for "Jesus Christ" (in context of a "cuss" word) since the 1920s. The expression is spoken in movies like The Brave Little Tailor and The Wizard of Oz. Pinocchio had a character named Jiminy Cricket who was named after the expression, not the other way around.

I was luckily able to catch a screening a few weeks ago here in Houston.
As an avid lover of Wall-E, I felt Pixar could never reach those heights again.
I was wrong.
UP's story will probably seem peculiar at first glance. An old man as a protagonist? It definitely blew my expectations. The first 5 minutes demolished every other Pixar feature just because it was the first time I cried in a theater.
This just shows how much heart there is to the movie. I really don't want to get into specifics because of spoilers but the movie literally has everything.
Amazing visual effects.
Breath taking action.
All those combined equal something special. Today's movies like to blow you away with gimmicks, Pixar is different. Each movie shows soul and UP definitely has it.
I can't wait until it comes out so I can see it in 3d, im bringing everybody.
