Pixar’s Next: Wall*E

August 28th, 2007 | Category: Lost Films

If any of you (and you all have no excuse) saw Pixar’s “Ratatouille,” you more than likely saw the trailer for next summer’s Pixar flick, “Wall*E,” about a tiny garbage disposal robot left all alone on an abandoned earth.

No movie next year, save maybe “Indy 4,” fills me with more excitement already. From all the details coming out-how the entire first third of the movie has no dialogue, how most of the dialogue in the movie is basically R2-D2 noises and bleeps, the incorporation of live actors (a first for Pixar) and more. Pixar has the best track record of any Hollywood studio currently, and to see them willing to risk so much with their next movie is worth early celebration, in my opinion. They really care about what they’re making, and it’s easy to love what they put out.

Take for instance this, http://buynlarge.com/, the early website for “Wall*E.” If you can find another website for a movie that’s more creative and more lovingly detailed than this, well, I’ll let you into a Lost Film for free. That’s a promise.

Check out the robotics section: my favorite is Nanc*E, the nanny robot.

Why don’t all studios care as much as this about what is, essentially, their legacy? I don’t know. But if they all did, the entertainment industry would finally be more than Entertainment Tonight manipulation, and would be something actually worth talking about on a daily level.

So thanks, Pixar, for being better than everyone else.
