How trippy would this have been had PIXAR gone ahead and followed this story through?

The film was to see an egg laid by Kevin being a fountain of youth. “Muntz wanted the egg because it was this youth potion that made you grow young,” says Docter. Carl was supposed to be protecting the egg throughout the movie.

Fortunately, the team realized it might have been a little over the top for such a heart-breaking movie, and opted to drop it from the final production.  However, you will get to see the storyboard sequence and director commentary when UP hit’s Blu-Ray this fall.
