In the distant future, a small waste-collecting robot inadvertently embarks on a space journey that will ultimately decide the fate of mankind.
The matching spelling to WALL-E's name is actually WALL·E.
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.
The original plan called for a mere five year trip, but the video instructions about the return to Earth show the same level of bone loss as the actual 700 year stay in space. Worse yet, such a short trip doesn't justify sending EVE probes at all, because, as we find out later, some people (including the president) have remained on Earth for these five years (the ship left in 2105 and the last message was sent in 2110). Evidently, the EVE program and the corresponding video were made in case the trip lasts indefinitely, possibly after it became clear that operation "Clean-up" is failing, but before it failed completely (or perhaps even afterward, but they forgot to cancel the previous order of not returning to Earth).
The end credits features a "mosaic" of a family of turtles (and an orange clown fish), a reference to Andrew Stanton's earlier film, Finding Nemo.
