The Married Life Montage in Pixar’s Up

There’s a short new article appearing in the Entertainment section of the Los Angeles Times specifically about the poignant, critically-acclaimed four-minute-long montage that anchors Carl’s story early on in Up (termed “Married Life” on the Up soundtrack).

Pete Docter and Jonas Rivera share their thoughts on the various aspects of the montage, such as the inclusion of the heartrending scene of Ellie crying at the doctors’ office after having a miscarriage and the use of particular colors to assist in illustrating the various stages of Carl and Ellie’s life together.
