Pixar has reimagined one of its most heartwarming films as a Japanese animation show, proving that differences in aesthetics and presentation can completely change the mood of a story.
The animation studio has turned the story of Up into a dramatic anime title sequence, complete with fast-moving visuals and head-banging music.
“Time to (re)mix it up!” the company shared. “Inspired by Japanese-style animation, this new twist on a pixel-perfect adventure is one you don’t want to miss.”
Viewers are first jogged through a preview of Carl and Ellie Fredericksons’ childhood and married life, similar to the start of the original 2009 film.
The rest of the video is a delightful synopsis of the entire movie, zipping you through the adventures of Carl, boy scout Russell, Doug the dog, and the balloon-hoisted house.
The grumpy old man ultimately cultivates a soft spot for the chirpy boy, stepping in to become Russell’s caretaker.
Watch the alternate-reality film below.
