Winner of the Best Animated feature film and best scoring, this has to be one of my favorite Pixar Movies! This is a fabulous story about a balloon salesman, Carl Fredrickson, who had always shared a dream with his wife of living in South America at Paradise Falls. Years later Ellie his wife dies, and Carl remembers his promise to taking her to Paradise Falls. At age 78, his adventure begins when he ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away! As you would imagine, Carl is very surprised when he hears a knock at the door hundreds of feet in the air. He finds an eight year old wilderness explorer named Russell and together, they land in South America and have an adventure that neither one could have ever dreamed of!
