WALL-E is the latest animated film from the American company Pixar, which also made Toy Story (1995), Finding Nemo (2003) and The Incredibles (2004).

It came out in the United States in June this year, and in many other countries soon afterwards.

Just like Pixar’s other animated films, WALL-E tells a story that both adults and children can enjoy. Although it has a serious message, showing what might happen to our planet if we don’t take care of it, there is also a lot of humour.

The story begins on Earth about 800 years into the future. There are no humans any more because they all left in spaceships in the 22nd century, when terrible pollution made it impossible to stay. They thought they would only be away for a few years and left behind thousands of robots to clean up the mess they had made, but the pollution was so bad that they couldn’t return.

Now, 700 years later, all the robots have stopped working – except one, WALL-E, who spends most of his time picking up rubbish and putting it into piles. He has developed feelings and is very lonely, with only a pet cockroach for company.

Then, one day, a female robot, EVE, arrives in a spaceship. The humans, who are still living out in space on other spaceships, have sent her to see if there is any sign of life on Earth.

WALL-E  falls in love with EVE, but it seems she does not feel anything towards him. When a spaceship comes to pick EVE up, WALL-E decides to take a chance and follow her into space – and that’s where the comic adventure really starts.

WALL-E and EVE go to a much larger spaceship with a population of humans and robots. We see how living for 700 years away from their planet has changed these humans: they spend their time in chairs that float just above the floor, and have become so fat that they cannot even stand without the help of the robots. Some of the other robots are very funny, such as little M-O, who hates dirt and rushes around the spaceship cleaning things.

WALL-E starts to influence both the humans and the other robots in important ways, but this is not the place to say what happens at the end of the film: let’s just say it’s a happy ending for WALL-E himself, and that there are positive changes in the humans’ behaviour.
