[Highly rated reviewer]this film was recently showcased at the Cannes film festival and is superb.
Up features the voices of Edward Asner, Christopher Plummer, Bob Peterson and Jordan Nagai.
Up is a computer-animated comedy-adventure about a cranky old man called Carl Fredricksen (voiced by Edward Asner) and an overeager Wilderness Explorer Scout called Russell (voiced by Jordan Nagai) who wants to earn his 'assisting the elderly' badge which is the only one that he does not have.
Carl wants to keep a promise to his deceased wife Ellie to fly to Paradise Falls in South America - so he devises a way to keep this promise by creating a makeshift airship using thousands of helium balloons which will lift his house off its foundation.
Russell meanwhile has stowed away on the porch of the house after being sent on a snipe hunt by Carl the day before.
Both are now aboard the floating house suspended from helium balloons on an adventure of a lifetime.
Well worth watching !
