"UP" The Movie; A Contemporary Parable?

In my constant pursuit of elite intellectual endeavor, I often watch cartoons and animated films. I recently watched the animated Disney / PIXAR movie "Up". In the movie, the main character, Mr. Fredrickson, flies his house off in search of "Paradise Falls" via the transport method of thousands of helium filled balloons. After much adventure with his sidekick, Russell, he ends up losing his house.
.
Russell: Sorry about your house Mr. Fredrickson.
Mr. Fredrickson: You know. It's just a house........
.
Hmmmmm. The imagery and timing is a little more than coincidental, methinks. Was Disney / PIXAR making a social / economic commentary about the housing bubble and it's consequences?
