Up

Seventy-eight-year-old Carl Fredricksen (voice of Edward Asner) has always wanted to see South America, so he ties thousands of balloons to his house and heads UP and away on the adventure of a lifetime. All seems to be going according to plan until the elderly man discovers some excess baggage, in the form of a pesky nine-year-old named Russell (voice of Jordan Nagai), who has inadvertently come along for the ride.
