With the crush of news we got today regarding Pixar's upcoming projects (see here and here) we also got some new details regarding Up, in the form of a synopsis.
Up is described as a "comedic adventure" starring a 78-year man named Carl Fredricksen, who's "spent his entire life dreaming of exploring the globe and experiencing life to its fullest". Due to his age, he thinks life has "passed him by". One day, however, a "twist of fate", and an 8-year old "Wilderness Explorer" named Russell, changes his outlook on life. The pair go on adventures, encountering "wild terrain", "unexpected villains" and "jungle creatures".

This movie really seems like it'll be a throwback to old-school Disney storytelling, which I think is great...
