In the distant future, a small waste-collecting robot inadvertently embarks on a space journey that will ultimately decide the fate of mankind.
The production had to cheat on the shot from Hello, Dolly! (1969) which features the lovers holding hands. In the 1969 film, there is no close-up of this hand-holding, so Pixar were luckily allowed to take the original film element and go in a little tighter on it.
Voice in commercial:
Too much garbage in your face? There's plenty of space out in space! BnL StarLiners leaving each day. We'll clean up the mess while you're away.
WALL-E records part of the the song "It Only Takes A Moment" from "Hello, Dolly!" and then plays it when he goes outside to look at the night sky. When he replays the song, it starts from an earlier point than when he hit the record button.
During the first half of the credits when the humans are seen rebuilding the world, they start off as the large people they are in the movie and gradually become thinner and more fit as the credits and artwork progress as the work gets them back into shape.
