WALL-E is about the most unconventional animated feature film you will likely ever encounter. It’s strange, it’s moving, it’s powerful, and it’s pretty darn spectacular. Realistically speaking, this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise considering this is big-budget Pixar/ Disney all the way, was done by the director of Finding Nemo, and boarded by the creative storytellers behind Cars and Ratatouille.
By now you’ve read that there is bare minimum dialog in this picture and it is the first of its kind to integrate live-action segments with computer generated imagery. It’s set in the distant future on a nearly unrecognizable earth and humanity, in an evolved state of disability no less, doesn’t even make an appearance till the latter portion of the film. A majority of the lead character’s interaction exists between a silent robot and a cockroach and yet despite these areas (or perhaps because of them), WALL-E delivers heart-warming entertainment in spades.
The plot takes place approximately seven hundred years in the future, and finds the earth over-run with garbage/ devoid of plant and animal life; the consequence of years of environmental degradation and thoughtless consumerism.
