Ewok + R2D2 = WALL-E

A service robot inspired by Broadway musicals might not sound like ingredients for a top drawer voyage of self-discovery, but WALL-E is one of the great sci-fi movies of all time.

Twenty minutes into Pixar’s near photo-realistic creation I realised my jaw was hanging down as the animators succeeded so masterfully in bringing life to this cute mobile garbage truck.

Look out for cameos from Sputnik, the Apple ‘sound’ and music from 2001:ASO. The latter coming not, as expected, when WALL-E traverses Saturn’s rings but rather when man enters his own 29th century final frontier: walking.

Irony, humor and animation beyond spectacular, the garbage trucks outside theaters will be chock full of ticket stubs.
