      The only Pixar movie I have seen was Toy Story. And I loved it. Pete Docter sounds like he has continued to write imaginative movies that have depth, meaning and content that makes one reflect and think. This is what is needed within the animated “children’s genre” because perhaps the adults have gotten too busy to actually pause and ponder what’s really important in life.

      Awesome. The last paragraph is excellent. And this:

      achieving a long-held dream is not actually the point of being alive.

      Pete Docter worked profoundly for Pixar. Soul & Up has cultivated life meaning in adults & children also.

      How life's mechanism operates our dreams & we feel lucky to achieve it whereas death & life is the ultimate truth presents Soul.

      Then the touching lesson of Up is that life’s adventures don’t always take the form you might have expected or planned.

      Soul & Up both are about characters who come to understand that achieving a long-held dream is not actually the point of being alive.
