In the distant future, a small waste-collecting robot inadvertently embarks on a space journey that will ultimately decide the fate of mankind.
To achieve the filmic look, the Pixar animators brought in some vintage 1970s Panavision cameras - similar to the ones used to shoot the original "Star Wars" (1977) - and shot some imagery to get an idea of what it should look like.
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 sent to find evidence of life on earth, but she shoots at WALL·E and the cockroach before establishing that they are friendly. In one of Shelby Forthright's video messages, he states that the EVE units were looking for evidence of ongoing photosynthesis, i.e. plant life, which WALL·E and the cockroach are not. This is further supported by the meaning of "EVE" as "Extraterrestrial Vegetation Evaluator": EVE's mission is to find not just any life, but specifically plant life, which would show that Earth has a theoretically sustainable ecosystem again. Animal and artificial life are more likely to be a threat to her than evidence of a healthy planet.
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.
