Let’s give a moment to those mothers that can not have a child…
and to the husbands that stick by their wives regardless of wether they can have a child
This was the most realistic Disney movie ever.
yeah the part where the house flies off due to a bunch of balloons was very realistic
Actually they consulted an architect about how many balloons exactly it would take to do that to a house of that exact size and weight. They calculated that moment using a physics engine and took everything into account. Unless a professional architect as well as all of the physics professors who put their effort into that highly advanced physics engine are wrong, that take off was actually very doable and scientifically accurate.
GET WRECKED SON
It just got better
Well someone is about to get wrecked because, yes Pixar did figure out an estimation on how many balloons it would take to lift Carl’s house. And what was that number? Oh about 23.5-26 MILLION balloons. This with your typical party balloons. Wired magazine apparently estimated it would take over 100,000 balloons if you used 3 foot diameter balloons which would be made from a stronger, more durable material. If the house had weighed about 100,000 pounds. But no where did Pixar ever use that amount of balloons in their sequences. Numbers being dropped online said that Pixar had used 20,622 balloons for the liftoff sequence, and most of the other scenes used only 10,297 balloons.
A little over 10,000 balloons may be able to get an adult on the small side off the ground. Mythbusters had done an experiment to see how many balloons it would take a little kid off the ground. I think a four year old? They had estimated it would take 2,000 balloons, and yet it took over 3,000 balloons! They didn’t even give the full number. And they had to hustle because they estimated the balloons would have 6 hours of flying time before helium would begin to seep out of the balloons (these being your regular latex party balloons.)
TLDR; So no, the liftoff scene is not possible.
