Storyline

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, ...

Trivia

Director Andrew Stanton explained why he used excerpts from Hello, Dolly! (1969) in an interview: "When I got to 'Hello, Dolly!' and I played 'Put on Your Sunday Clothes', and that first phrase 'Out there...' came out, it just fit musically... I finally realized, 'You know what, this song is about two guys that are just so naive, they've never left a small town, and they just wanna go out in the big city for one night and kiss a girl. That's my main character.' And then my co-writer, Jim Reardon, said, 'You know what, he could actually discover an old tape in the trash, and that's how he got inspired by it, and it's a great way to show that he's got a romantic slant.' So we started looking at the movie, and when I found the other song, 'It Only Takes a Moment', and saw the two lovers holding hands, I realized, 'That's a perfect way for my main character to express the phrase 'I love you' without being able to say it.'" The vacuuming robot that follows WALL-E and EVE has a robotic version of the song "Put On Your Sunday Clothes" (from the "Hello, Dolly!" It's the first two lines of the song's chorus in electronic form. Stanton came up with the idea of using 'Put on Your Sunday Clothes' from "Hello, Dolly!" as he had portrayed Barnaby Tucker in a 1980 high school production. Hello, Dolly! (1969) composer Jerry Herman allowed his songs to be used in the film without fully realizing how or why. When he saw how they worked in the film, he claimed it was "genius". See more »

Goofs

For the ship to have survived 700+ years in space, everything would have to be recycled (including the passengers). Dumping huge amounts of trash out in space would eventually deplete the ship of materials needed to maintain operations. This is likely a metaphorical/stylistic decision by the filmmakers, as a reflection of the "Consume and discard" BnL attitude that led to the desolation of Earth in the first place.

We also don't see enough detail of the ejected garbage to tell whether it actually represents the full variety of waste the ship would have produced (for example, there doesn't seem to be any water in the garbage); it's possible that some things are recycled while others are jettisoned. Furthermore, "outer space" isn't as empty as we imagine it to be; many basic elements could theoretically be harvested from the ship's surroundings, and the ship could have capabilities for using that material that we simply don't see.

Alternate Versions

End credits for international versions feature additional credits footage with dubbing information for each language. This footage also contains animation of WALL·E not seen in the English version of the film: WALL·E in 80s CGI graphics style compacts two vertical rows of different objects into cubes of garbage. Eventually, two WALL·A robots collide in the front of the screen, closing the credits. See more »

Pixar does it again!
8 June 2008 | by DrWetterSee all my reviews

I just returned from an advanced benefit screening of WALL*E, and I want to be careful not to spill too much regarding the movie. I had the added privilege of watching the film at Pixar, which in and of itself, was amazing.

This picture is not a cartoon; it is a film. In fact, it even has the LOOK of film. One of my complaints of more recent 3-D/CG animated films (not from Pixar) is that they all seem to look the same... clean lines, crisp colors, and very "virtual", for lack of a better term. WALL*E transcends the typical look of CG animation, and has a true to life "grit." The creators at Pixar are true artists, and are indeed masters of their craft. Not only are they masters of the technology, they are masters of telling a story. WALL*E is no exception.

The best way to describe the film is as a science fiction, comedy, dramatic love story. WALL*E, as a character, has dimension, personality, and heart... pretty impressive given that he is essentially a trash compactor. It is true that there is little dialogue in this feature, but I personally did not feel it detracted from the story at all.

WALL*E is very much a different Pixar film from it's previous features. I will be curious to see how it is received by others, but in my opinion, I think Pixar has stayed true to itself, demonstrating a commitment to telling great stories and pushing the edge of technology to leave your jaw dropping! My most sincere compliments to Andrew Stanton, Jim Morris, John Lasseter, Ben Burtt, and all the creative forces at Pixar. Can't wait to see what the future brings...
