Carl Fredricksen, a 78-year-old balloon salesperson, is about to fulfil a lifelong dream.

Tying thousands of balloons to his house, he flies away to the South American wilderness.

But curmudgeonly Carl's worst nightmare comes true when he discovers a little boy named Russell is a stowaway aboard the balloon-powered house.

‘A hugely enjoyable work, whose care, craftsmanship and creative courage are rarely found in mainstream films – animated or otherwise’ – Cosmo Landesman, The Times

‘The latest computer-animated adventure from Pixar Studios has a simple premise that should enchant viewers of all ages, fusing childhood fantasies of escape with adult feelings of melancholy and regret’ – Jake Wilson, The Age
