Pixar’s UP

Filed under: movie — Tags: , , , , , — yaadayaada @ 12:53 am

My cousin’s husband works for Pixar. Thanks to him, we got to go for a free preview of UP. We saw the movie yesterday. The movie is great! It has a good mix of sentiments and fun. The little boy Russell is funny to watch. The bird Kevin is so colourful and cute. Ellie is also very cute even though she has only less screen presence. I especially liked Frederikson smelling of prune juice. Ha Ha Ha!!

The short movie before UP, Stork story Partly Cloudy was beyond cute. Loved it. Don’t know how people can be this creative and funny.

It was fun watching the movie in the midst of the creators. It was great watching the family/friends of creators clap when their names appeared on the credits.

The Pixar office is so nice with the 20 feet table lamp and the ball outside the lobby.



The lobby outside the preview theatre is full of life size characters from Pixar movies. Sully, Mike Wazowski, cars, etc. Since I have a broken ankle, couldn’t go up and see the other characters. May be next time. Time to start inviting the Pixar cousins home for dinner regularly. 😉

    Did you see any celebs?

    It was at Pixar’s development center. So pretty much everyone there were techies. Also it was a friends and family event. So no red carpet and such! 🙂
