Disney's Up Was Inspired By A True, Bad Ass Woman Who Wouldn't Go Back On Her Word For Big Bucks!

up inspired by true story

This is AH-MAZING! What a bad ass woman!

Remember Disney's movie UP? Ya know, where the guy refused to move from his home for a skyscraper to be built and eventually flew his house to South America using balloons?

Well, apparently the movie was inspired by a true story!

Not the flying a house with balloons part, the whole refusing to move from/sell a house part!

Reportedly, the story is based on 84-year-old Edith Mcefield who refused $1 million dollars for her home AND said no repeatedly to moving away from it in order for a company to build a shopping center.

So they built the complex AROUND her house!

PLUS, not only was Edith a complete BAMF about this issue, but she was also a spy for the British intelligence during WWII and sent to Germany as a music student to spy on the Nazis!

How AH-MAZING!!!

When Edith was asked why she didn't want to move, she gave the most heartwarming answer ever.

She said:

“Where would I go? I don’t have any family and this is my home. My mother died here, on this very couch. I came back to America from England to take care of her. She made me promise I would let her die at home and not in some facility, and I kept that promise. And this is where I want to die. Right in my own home. On this couch.”

Such a strong woman!!

We love it!
