"something more out of life, fearing growing up, fearing the loss of the magic and awe you once had with the world. It's about self improvement, trying to be the best version of yourself, and finding your true happiness."

Literally what you said. 

There's a KEY difference, Matthew.

In Up- Carl through the years HAS conformed, because of circumstances beyond his control. He wants to go on an adventure, but he soon finds the real adventure was his life with his wife. That being said, he's become bitter and sad due to her death- feeling as though the magic, hope, and awe died with his wife. The movie is about recapturing that for him, and finding his happiness without her. 

In Unicorn Store- Kit (Brie Larson) is lost, not because she's lost the magic and dreams in the world- but because she doesn't WANT to lose it. She flunks out of art school, her parents are passive and condescending, and she wants to be something more than just conforming to the suburbia and having that sense of "normality" her parents want for her. She's somewhat childish, but she challenges what it means to be childish- why is colorful childish? why is it childish to dream? In the movie, Brie learns to stop worrying about what other people think and to focus on her own happiness and chase after what she wants. By the end, the side characters also learn to accept her for who she is instead of trying to change that. She wants to see the magic in the world, and she doesn't want cynicism to destroy her. She learns that being an adult is to accept that sometimes you fail and to learn from it, but that doesn't mean you have to give up on your dreams. By the end the unicorn is incidental, its this idea of her childhood dreams that she was seeking- but she realizes that the happiness she receives is not from the mythical creature- but her embracing every part of her that people have shut down for years.

Statistical fact: Cops will never pull over a man with a huge bong in his car. Why?
They fear this man. They know he sees further than they and he will bind them with ancient logic.

Society is binding. Right? It’s filling in the cracks with concrete. Everything’s filed or reported, logged, right?
Chips in our kids heads so they won’t get lost. Society needs to crumble. We’re all just too chicken shit to let it.

Congrats on knowing the definition of a plot. Good thing I'm talking about THEMES.

Themes coexist with plots. The stuff I said about Unicorn Store ARE themes, and since you know what themes are you know that.

Unicorn's themes are the reversal of Ups, and about not conforming. There are no themes against conforming in "Up".

He doesn't want to conform to be a boring old man and let down his wife's dreams.
