Ellie Fredricksen is a character who, despite being dead before the events depicted, plays a significant role in the 2009 film Up. She was the wife of Carl Fredricksen. Only as a child is Ellie heard, as she is voiced by Ellie Docter (as a child), the director's daughter, but doesn't speak for the rest of her appearances during her life sequence.

Background

Ellie first met Carl as a child when he wandered into her clubhouse. The two became close friends after realizing they shared a similar admiration for explorer Charles Muntz (who later in the movie becomes the main antagonist). Ellie made promises with Carl by saying "Cross your heart?".

Eventually, Carl and Ellie were married, but were unable to have children. They constantly tried to arrange a trip to Paradise Falls, but every time something always happened to prevent it. After Carl finally managed to acquire a ticket, Ellie died of old age and an unknown illness.

Trivia

  • Ellie has full speaking lines during her childhood years, but has no dialogue in her depicted adult years.
  • Ellie's name is based off her voice actress, Elie Docter, Pete Docter's daughter.
  • In Toy Story 3, a signature of Carl and Ellie Fredricksen was seen in Andy's room.
  • Ellie has her own musical theme composed by Michael Giacchino that's first heard when she and Carl meet as children and plays several times throughout Up after her death, particularly when Carl gets the house up in the air with the balloons and during the climactic battle between Carl and Muntz as it plays against Muntz's theme.
  • Ellie is the fifth Pixar character to die, after Combat Carl, Hopper, Coral and Syndrome.
  • Her middle and maiden name are unknown.
