Continuity mistake: When Wall-E presents Eve with the plant, he is facing her directly. When Eve is later viewing the footage from her security camera, Wall-E is shown facing at an angle towards the left of the screen, instead of straight ahead.

Suggested correction: Not really I mean they disappear but they fade away.

They fade yes, but then they all simply vanish at the same time.

Continuity mistake: When Wall-e is climbing the ladder on the space ship, he climbs nearly to the top. Then he is knocked down from the force of the take-off. Then in the next shot, he is back at the top. (00:31:40)

Continuity mistake: When Eve fires a shot at the tanker they show an overhead view of the scene - there are three other tankers sitting on the starboard side of the exploded tanker. When the tankers fall like dominoes there are now four of them next to the exploded tanker.

Suggested correction: There is correct number of ships, but more likely wrong ship is burning in second image.

How so? You can see 3 tankers + the burning one in the first and 4 + burning tanker in second one.

And as an added note, the screenshots don't do the mistake justice. When the tanker first explodes it lights the entire area up more than is shown.

Trivia: "A113" is the code for AUTO's directive to stop the humans returning to earth. This is a reference to the classroom at the California Institute of the Arts where character animation is taught and is placed in films as an inside joke by many alumni of the course, appearing, for example, in every Pixar film to date. A fuller list of appearances can be found here. (01:05:00)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Eve meets the cockroach and Wall-E, after blowing up the tires Eve approaches Wall-E. We get a shot from Wall-E looking down Eve's gun, and her eyes are squinted and challenging. The shot changes to the side so the cockroach can jump to Wall-E, and her eyes are softer and more neutral- then the shot changes back to looking down the gun and they're challenging again.

Continuity mistake: We see Wall-E chucking stuff into his cooler. The items inside the cooler are constantly changing position. Most noticeable is the rubber duck. (00:11:00)

Factual error: As a trash compactor Wall-E does not function logically. When he fills his chest compartment with garbage and runs his internal compactor, the cube that exits his body is the same volume as the trash he puts in, despite that trash having been compacted. He does not add extra trash to fill the empty space after running the compactor - there are three scenes that show him filling up only once with loose garbage and then ejecting a densely compacted cube. (00:02:30)

Suggested correction: You haven't noticed the exact shape of his body. The back sticks out a tad. Garbage fills the space and the back pushes in to compress it.

You've missed the point of the mistake here. The cube that is ejected is the same size as the compartment. Wall-E puts loose fitting items into the compactor with gaps between items but once it's been crushed and compacted it's exactly the same size as before. It should be smaller.

Trivia: EVE's iPod-like design can be attributed to the fact that she was designed by the same man who designed the iPod, Johnny Ive.

More trivia for Wall-E

Question: Just a question about the remarkable resemblance to Johnny Five from the Short Circuit films. Is Wall-E intentionally modeled this way or is it just a coincidence they look so alike?

Answer: It certainly wasn't intentional, although the director, Andrew Stanton, has acknowledged that he did see Short Circuit many years ago and agrees that it could well have been a subconscious influence. WALL-E was principally designed with the job that he does in mind - the design brief was to consider WALL-E as an appliance first, what he would need to look like in order to do his job efficiently, then work out how to read emotion into the character after that. Stanton has stated that the chief inspiration for WALL-E's eyes came from a pair of binoculars, which he decided looked happy or sad depending on which way up they were.
