Rated PG (for action and peril). Comedy Starring Ed Asner, Jordan Nagai, Christopher Plummer, John Ratzenberger. Directed by Pete Docter.
Ed Asner lends voice talent to the wistful and occasionally melancholy tale of an old man's efforts to float his home to a remote South American cliff on a bouquet of helium-filled party balloons. Along the way, he meets a young scout looking to earn the final good-deed badge on his uniform, a giant presumed-to-be-extinct bird, and a band of dogs with electronic speech-enabled collars that grant them the ability to speak to humans as well as to each other.
