What if mankind had to leave Earth, and somebody forgot
to turn the last robot off?
Academy Award-winning writer-director Andrew Stanton
(Finding Nemo) and the inventive storytellers and technical geniuses at
Pixar Animation Studios (The Incredibles,
Cars, Ratatouille) transport moviegoers to a galaxy not so
very far away for a new computer-animated cosmic comedy about a determined
robot named WALL•E.
After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was
built for, WALL•E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class)
discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he
meets a sleek search robot named EVE. EVE comes to realize that WALL•E has
inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet's future, and races back
to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly
awaiting word that it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, WALL•E chases
EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most exciting and
imaginative comedy adventures ever brought to the big screen.
Joining WALL•E on his fantastic journey across a
universe of never-before-imagined visions of the future, is a hilarious
cast of characters including a pet cockroach, and a heroic team of
malfunctioning misfit robots.
Filled with surprises, action, humor and heart, WALL•E
was written and directed by Andrew Stanton, produced by Jim Morris,
co-produced by Lindsey Collins and features original and innovative sound
design by Academy Award-winner Ben Burtt (Star

So far Pixar’s record – both critically as well as
has been near perfect . Right from Toy Story through Finding
Nemo to Ratatouille, Pixar has yet to stumble. Sure, Cars may
not have been that good and Ratatouille underperformed slightly at the
office, but hey! Cars was still a whole lot better than a lot Pixar’s
competitors’ output (Shrek 3, Ice Age) and Ratatouille still made good
So can Pixar do no wrong? Nope, doesn’t look like it . . .
