In order to power the city, monsters have to scare children so that they scream. However, the children are toxic to the monsters, and after a child gets through, 2 monsters realize things may not be what they think.
The toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care center instead of the attic right before Andy leaves for college, and it's up to Woody to convince the other toys that they weren't abandoned and to return home.
In a distant, but not so unrealistic, future where mankind has abandoned earth because it has become covered with trash from products sold by the powerful multi-national Buy N Large corporation, WALL-E, a garbage collecting robot has been left to clean up the mess. Mesmerized with trinkets of Earth's history and show tunes, WALL-E is alone on Earth except for a sprightly pet cockroach. One day, EVE, a sleek (and dangerous) reconnaissance robot, is sent to Earth to find proof that life is once again sustainable. WALL-E falls in love with EVE. WALL-E rescues EVE from a dust storm and shows her a living plant he found amongst the rubble. Consistent with her "directive", EVE takes the plant and automatically enters a deactivated state except for a blinking green beacon. WALL-E, doesn't understand what has happened to his new friend, but, true to his love, he protects her from wind, rain, and lightning, even as she is unresponsive. One day a massive ship comes to reclaim EVE, but WALL-E, ...
According to Andrew Stanton's director's commentary, the names and (caricatured) likenesses of past Axiom captains are from Pixar writing team members. The years listed for each captain seems to be term of service, not lifespan, as there is no overlap of years. The average term of service is 135 years. The years add up to 666. Within the portraits, Auto develops from a small light and becomes brighter with each succeeding captain. The obesity of the captains grows at the same rate, showing a correlation between reliance on autopilot versus actively moving. See more »
EVE's facial dirt markings disappear and re-appear. EVE gets several dirty markings on her otherwise pristine white exterior while in the garbage hold. A long dark stain runs down the right side (her left) of her "eye screen". When she flies WALL-E and M-O out of the garbage hold into the corridor, and is photographed aiming her weapon at the steward robot, and in shot when locking the steward away, the marking is clearly gone. Immediately after, as she is flying down the corridor, followed by a growing group of faulty robots, the mark reappears. During the battle with the large contingent of steward robots, in the beginning when she shoots a steward, the mark is gone, but as she shields herself when the 'massage' robot is let loose, the mark reappears.

During the first half of the credits when the humans are seen rebuilding the world, they start off as the large people they are in the movie and gradually become thinner and more fit as the credits and artwork progress as the work gets them back into shape. See more »
Awesome new Pixar feature on its way to amaze yet again
I just saw the screener in the theater and was amazed. I am the kind of person that has never liked science fiction movies. I have tried all the famous movies in this genre, like Star Wars, The Matrix and A Space Odyssey and hated all of them. Next to me in the theater were a couple of Sci-fi-lovers and they loved Wall-E beyond belief. I did too, however. Wall-E is: A) A great story B) Packed with fun and humor C) Built up with memorable characters D) Fun for all ages E) Revolutionary in animation techniques
The world Pixar creates is so credible, you forget it is animation. Thumbs up for Wall-E as well, he is such a cute and adorable character, you will fall in love with him immediately. I loved EVE as well.
