Disney/Pixar Unveils WALL-E

Pixar Wall-E

[Update: Click here to view the WALL-E Trailer] - Over the years we’ve seen a bundle of robot films, from the adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot, the Terminator series, and the forgettable Short Circuit films. An upcoming film about a robot uprising (starring Shrek-star Mike Meyers) is also in the works.

One of the most promising new films may be WALL-E, a new Pixar
animated film slated for release in June 2008. TIME Magazine drops a
few hints about the flick in its June 18th issue that presents this
summary: “The year is 2700. WALL• E, a robot, spends every
day doing what he was made for. But soon, he will discover what he was
meant for.”

This sounds a bit like the “exploited robot seeks
freedom” storyline we’ve seen elsewhere, but you have to
admit that Pixar’s track record is phenomenal. Mark your
calendars, as this one will likely be worth a trip to the local
super-uber-megaplex to see on the big screen. (Source: TIME Magazine, /FILM) - [Jeff James]
