Filmmakers take pride in making their art as realistic as possible. That means character research and meticulous details that only the most eagle-eyed viewers are bound to notice. Even so, those details, specific scenes, and even camera angles are picked for a reason.
From the historically accurate “sniper bruise” in Saving Private Ryan to the scientifically accurate display of electrocution in Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse, only experts would catch these details the first go around.
The Dog Breeds Were Specifically Chosen In Up
Dog lovers might have caught on to the reason behind the specific dog breeds in Up. Otherwise, Pixar fans are about to have their mind blown! The animators chose the specific breeds of Doug, Alpha, Beta, and Gamma, for a very literal reason, to show how one can track the tropical bird better than the others.
While Alpha, Beta, and Gamma, are Doberman, Rottweiler, and English bulldog, respectively, Doug is a goofy golden retriever. The thing is, while the three “evil dogs” are in a hunting party, they’re unable to track the bird because, ironically, Doug is the only hunting breed!
