U is for...........Up.
The best animated movies work on multiple levels, and Up is both a fun movie for kids, and a deeply moving film for adults.
The best movies give you something to talk about, and I have had so many great conversations about Up with the girls. One day Scout asked me why Mr. Fredrickson used a walker in the beginning of the movie. This led to a discussion about symbolism. I didn't have to tell the girls why he used that walker. I asked a few questions and they were able to figure out that the walker was a symbol for giving up, and that by the end of the movie, Mr. Fredrickson didn't need that walker because he had decided to enjoy his life again.
Not bad for a cartoon.
What's your favorite animated movie?
