Reason No. 673 why Pixar is the greatest studio on the planet.

Ten-year-old Colby Curtin was dying of a rare form of cancer, but she had one last wish before her death: To see the new Pixar/Disney movie Up.

But she was too ill for a trip to the theater, so when Pixar heard about it, they flew a rep to Colby's house in Huntington Beach, CA, for a private screening in her home. Colby died seven hours later.

"When I watched it, I had really no idea about the content of the theme of the movie," Colby's mother, Lisa Curtin, told the Orange County Register. "I just know that word ‘Up' and all of the balloons and I swear to you, for me it meant that (Colby) was going to go up. Up to heaven."
