Pixar's anime Up remix is both bizarre and exhilarating

If there's one film sequence guaranteed to make you cry, it's the first ten minutes of Pixar's Up. Charting the lives of Carl Fredericksen and his wife Ellie, the opening montage is a masterclass in capturing the highs and lows of marriage. Was it crying out to be turned into a high-octane anime mashup? Nope, but that doesn't mean we don't love Pixar's bizarre new offering.

The studio has created an official 'Up Remix' which re-renders Up in a more traditional 2D style (think Studio Ghibli) and distills the entire film into a 90-second anime opening sequence. (Check out our best laptops for video editing if you're inspired to knock together a remix of your own.) Still haven't seen Up? Grab yourself a Disney Plus subscription to get involved.
