I rarely enjoy animated films but Up was one of those gems. Similar to the lovable characters from Pixar's The Incredibles, the film manages to tug on the heart strings within the first five minutes. Unlike last year's disappointing Wall-E which was all hype and no substance. The only regret I had was the movie didn't feature enough of Ellie, young or old. I wouldn't mind seeing Pixar return to these great characters and maybe have more flashbacks.
With unnecessary sequels like Toy Story 3 and Cars 2, I would have expected Pixar to move quickly on sequels to their quality films. Monsters Inc 2 and The Incredibles 2 being ones I've been most looking forward to. Up 2 has been added as one of those films in my opinion.
