Wall-E

New this month Trivia: The first Pixar film to be nominated for six Academy Awards.

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.

Trivia: WALL-E stands for "Waste Allocation Load Lifter - Earth Class," EVE stands for "Extra Terrestrial Vegetation Evaluator," and M-O stands for "Microbe Obliterator," confirmed in Cineworld Unlimited Magazine.

Trivia: Because of Ben Burtt's work in the Original Star Wars Trilogy, the film was jokingly referred to as R2-D2: The Movie among the staff.

Trivia: Wall-E's love of "Hello, Dolly" is a shout out to creator, Andrew Stanton's high school theater work, according to a local newspaper story (www.eagletribune.com).

Trivia: When EVE unsuccessfully scans the porta-potty for plant life (in the shot immediately before scanning the Apollo command module), it sounds as if she rattles off a very un-ladylike "F-bomb" in disgust. Turn up the volume to hear it. Fairly prominent in the version that airs on the Starz cable channel.

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.

Trivia: The rat-sized mechanic robots on the Axiom are designated REM-E, in reference to Remy, the lead character from Pixar's previous film Ratatouille.

Trivia: When Wall-E opens his truck for the first time in the film, we see several wide shots of the interior. In the first close up shot of the shelves containing Wall-E's treasures, there is a shelf containing two bowling pins. Look between the heads of the pins and you can see Rex from Toy Story sitting on the shelf between them.

Trivia: Red, the unicycle from Pixar's short 'Red's Dream' makes an appearance, lying on his side, in WALL-E's home. He's seen briefly when WALL-E shows EVE his treasures.

Mistakes

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.
