I've never seen 'Up'. I heard it was depressing in the beginning and I have a problem watching depressing stuff because I get down easily. Then stay there. Truthfully, I've never been able to pick myself back up after watching Atreyu lose Artax to the Swamp of Sadness in 'The Neverending Story' (links to you crying your f***ing eyeballs out for the rest of the day -- watch at your own risk, toughguy).
Bangerter Homes, the developer, sought out permission from Disney before building the 2,800 square foot Up! House replica (I'm actually amazed that they got the go ahead) and just recently finished the exterior. The interior still needs some work but they'll be following the movie's blueprints, if you saw it in the movie, you'll probably see it in this house. The developers are being mindful of every little detail--the weathervane, the garden hose, everything.
The house, located in Herriman, Utah, has an asking price of $400,000 and will open up for tours on July 29th to August 14th
The 'Up' house aside, WHYTF did I just watch that Artax video again? My whole day is pretty much shot now. I'd expect four REALLY depressing articles after this one if I were you. Knock knock. "Who's there?" God I just want to sleep forever.
Hit the jump for a couple more shots of detail reproduction and a video news report.
Thanks to LC, who knows the original Pixar concept was to have a house that burrows under the ground like a mole.
