Inspirational thinking on taking creative risks

We recently saw the new animated film UP. We hadn't watched anything but the teaser and didn't know what the story was all about, we just knew, because it was Pixar, it was going to be good. Original story, amazing animation and rounded character development. There are so many animated films out there that don't take the time to let you care about their characters! With how much work goes into animation, it seems a waste to dip below Pixar's winning standard.

I obviously have a great amount of admiration for Pixar and their creative wellspring so it is always interesting to hear how they do things...
