• WALL-E details

WALL-E Synopsis


WALL-E stands for Waste Allocation Load Lifters -- Earth Class, and the film is about a future in which Earth has become so overrun by trash that it’s uninhabitable for humans. 700 years before the movie takes place, the entire human race lives in an orbiting space ship, and sends robots down to the planet to clean it up. Flash to the present, and the project has failed. Only one robot is left on Earth still at work cleaning the place, and his name is WALL-E. WALL-E, a robot, spends every day doing what he was made for. But soon, he will discover what he was meant for.



It’s a testament to the amount of faith Disney must have in the newly acquired guys of Pixar that they’re letting them actually make and release this movie. Not because it’s about robots. If last summer’s Transformers box office has taught us anything, it’s that robots are an easy sell. Once they graduate from dinosaurs, every little kid wants his own robot, and WALL-E is just the right size to feed those pre-adolescent robot fantasies. Robots are no risk, but making a silent movie definitely is.

Pixar is proud of it, and they’ve been pretty open about describing WALL-E as a “space-set remake of a 1931 Charlie Chaplin film about a blind girl wooed by a tramp she mistakenly believes is a rich man.” That’s right, this little robot is a stand in for Chaplin, and rumor has it that a good portion of the film will be almost entirely silent, except for whatever bleeps and boops a humble robot might make alone on an abandoned, garbage dump planet.

Will audiences be able to handle it? At this point does Pixar even care? They’re on a roll which is almost unprecedented in the history of Hollywood, with an unbroken string of both critical and financial hits. Pixar can afford to lose money on one, quirky little art project. If that’s what WALL-E is, I’m sure the industry will get over it, eager to cash in on whatever their next brilliant idea is.

Ultimately though, taking risks like this is what has made Pixar what it is. They’ve always taken chances, pushed the envelope, and it’s paid off. Unlike almost everyone else who’s making family oriented movies, they’re never content to stick with a formula, or shove out a movie full of princesses and singing just because they know kids will shell out money to see it. WALL-E is just another extension of that philosophy, that refusal to conform, that determination to drive for innovation which, hey was once embodied by the Walt Disney run Disney company. Maybe that’s why Disney bought them out, and then handed the keys to the Magic Kingdom over to Pixar’s executives. Pixar is making more than movies, they’re making magic. WALL-E, perhaps more than any of their other recent instant classics, is a symbol of their dare to be different philosophy, and it’s bound to be sprinkled with plenty of Pixar fairy dust.

It's fantastic, and utterly appropriate, that these guys started off building R2D2s, since that little droid pretty much held the title for cutest on-screen robot until WALL-E came along in 2008. And as someone who knows pretty much nothing about robotics, engineering, physics or robot technology

In a stroke of genius, Hansen decided to combine the new space exploration horror flick with Pixar's beloved Wall-E. While the two films couldn't be further apart tonally, the visuals selected from the animated gem work so unbelievably well with the audio from Prometheus that it actually creates a whole new film that I would totally pay money to see.

Hey, at least we have further proof that the people at Pixar aren't just geniuses, but soothsayers; they predicted our blobby future on board the Axiom, totally unaware of what vegetables were, and we all scoffed and said it was ridiculous. Now we live in a world where pizza is a vegetable. Your hoverchair is surely headed to the production line any day now

Last night I caught Wall-E airing on ABC Family, and I posted the following challenge to everyone on Twitter: "Name me a scene in the Pixar canon better than Wall-E and Eve's space dance, I dare you." If you're not familiar with the scene I'm referencing you can watch it below, though for God's sake pick up the DVD or Blu-Ray and watch it in the resolution it was intended for; it's worth it, I promise. Anyway, apparently everyone loves to talk about Pixar when the gauntlet is thrown down, as I got a flood of responses from people with their own picks for Pixar's finest moments. And surprisingly enough, there was kind of a consensus about how wrong I was: a whopping 13 of the 40-odd responses singled out the opening "Married Life" montage in Up as the best thing Pixar has ever done. You can also watch it embedded below, though you probably know by now you ought to have tissues ready. Here are some of the other most popular responses; nearly all of the picks came from Wall-E, Up, Ratatouille or one of the Toy Story movies; Cars, Finding Nemo and A Bug's Life were left out entirely. What do you guys have against Dory the fish exactly? The "incinerator scene" from Toy Story 3: 5 votes The end of Toy Story 3: 5 votes The third act of The Incredibles (there were a lot of varied individual picks here): 4 votes Jessie's "When She Loved Me" flashback in Toy Story 2: 3 votes Wall-E and Eve's space dance (the right answer, you guys!): 3 votes Anton Ego's flashback to childhood in Ratatouille: 3 votes The opening scenes of Wall-E: 3 votes The final shot of Monsters, Inc.: 2 votes Doubtlessly you have a favorite that's not on this list; single-vote entries include "when EVE sees the replay of her security camera footage with WALL-E," "the part in UP where he finds out what's in his wife's book," "the scene in Toy Story when Buzz discovers that he is not a toy and then jumps off the ledge, losing his arm," "Dash/Violet's chase and escape from the Incredibles that leads into the family being reunited," and, uh, "Am I allowed to grandfather clause in Iron Giant? Because...that. All of that." Clearly this argument needs to continue in the comments, and what else do you have going on this Memorial Day holiday?
