Pixar Gives Magazine Sneak Peek at "Wall*E"
Pixar recently screened the first 35 minutes of Wall*E for AWN’s Bill Desowitz, who reports on it here. Sample description:
We begin in space, of course. Beautiful images of stars, a nebula and other iconic celestial shots as we hurl rapidly toward Earth. But wait: What’s that song about being “Out There”? “Put on Your Sunday Clothes” from Hello, Dolly!? What a hilarious juxtaposition as we meet WALL•E picking up garbage and all sorts of human thingamabobs that would make Ariel envious, with a likable roach on top of him as his lone friend. We glimpse the robot at work, gathering garbage at the dump, and compounding it for easy storage and disposal. Junk is piled high in trash towers in this abandoned city, as live-action promos featuring Fred Willard promise adventure in space on the Axiom cruiser. Evidently that’s where all the humans have gone.
There follows an extensive talk with Andrew Stanton.
