primitive animation
22 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

George & A.J. are staff from Shady Oaks Retirement Village who are supposed to bring in Carl Fredricksen. They are shocked when he flies away with his home. One week later, they are to bring in Mrs. Peterson but she escapes with her cats pulling her home away. Others do their own escapes in their own special ways until Shady Oaks itself is rocketed away with oxygen tanks. Then Carl returns in the blimp crushing George & A.J.'s van.

The animation is more primitive and similar to animated storyboards. It ties in with the movie 'Up'. It has a fun premise building upon the movie. The characters are good. The primitive animation does limit its appeal and there are obvious differences from the movie. I'm guessing this short was done before or during the making of the movie and some of the differences can be contributed to changes that naturally happen in any production.
