National Geographic Channel have obviously been heavily inspired by Pixar, and have created a real life version of their movie “Up”.
The inspirational movie follows an old man’s rediscovery of life, as he is thrown together with a young boy as his house is lifted off into the atmosphere by a load of balloons. National Geographic have re-created this beautifully, having built a 16′ by 16′ house to represent the one from the film and lifted it up into the sky with 300 helium filled balloons.
The footage of the event will be released in Fall 2011 on the National Geographic Channel in a new documentary titled “How Hard Can It Be?”.
It makes you think, what other films could be recreated in real life as PR stunts? How long will it be until we see real versions of Wall-E and EVE? With an unlimited budget, what would you like to see re-created in the real world? Let us know in the comments or on Facebook.
