In the distant future, a small waste-collecting robot inadvertently embarks on a space journey that will ultimately decide the fate of mankind.
WALL-E uses the Pixar trademark lamp from Luxo Jr. (1986) as one of his EVE sculpture's arms.
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.
EVE is shown as one of many bots to be sent to one of a multitude of possible life sustaining planets. When EVE returns to the Axiom and presents the plant, the ship automatically assumes it is from Earth. If the ship was programmed to return to Earth upon receiving a plant of any origin, sending multiple EVE bots would serve no purpose. However, when the captain analyzes the dirt WALL-E left on him, the computer describes the dirt as "Earth"; the Holo-Detector most likely is able to similarly analyze the dirt the plant is growing in. Also, nothing in the film actually states or shows that the EVE probes are investigating any planets other than Earth; it's more probable that multiple probes are instead being dispatched to a variety of locations on Earth. If you're looking for evidence that plants are again growing on Earth, it doesn't make much sense to send a single probe to investigate the entire planet. It makes even less sense to look for active vegetation on Earth by sending probes to places that are not Earth. EVE units are probably delivered to various locales on Earth periodically to check for plant life. The speed with which the shuttle returns to pick up EVE after she signals it suggests that it didn't go very far away, and it costs a lot of energy for a rocket to "turn around" on a moment's notice when it's heading away, so it's unlikely that it was en route to another star system; it was probably in a holding orbit around Earth, Luna, or Sol, from which it could easily return without excessive energy expenditure, waiting for either the next scheduled probe drop or a signal from a probe indicating that it found something.
In the international versions, additional credits with dubbing information are shown after the main credits, during which Wall-E turns different objects into cubes of garbage. At the end, two gigantic Wall-A robots collide in the front of the screen.
