Disney Pixar’s WALL-E is the story of a robot named WALL-E who is the last working robot on Earth. He discovers a new purpose in life when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. EVE comes to realize that WALL-E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet’s future, and races back to space to report to the humans. Meanwhile, WALL-E chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most imaginative adventures ever brought to the big screen. We recently discovered some fun facts about this cute movie and want to share them with you!
- Several items and characters from past Pixar films can be found in WALL-E’s trailer and in the trash scattered on Earth. If you look closely, you’ll see Rex from Toy Story, a Buzz Lightyear lunch box, Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc., and the bug zapper from A Bug’s Life to name a few.
- There are roughly 1000 unique props in WALL-E’s truck. It took a team of 5 modelers and 5 shading artists more than a month to create them.
3. WALL-E has a cruising speed of 20 mph and a top downhill speed of 35 mph.
4. WALL-E stands for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class.
5. EVE stands for Extraterrestrial Vegetation Evaluator.
6. The Axiom has roughly 80 decks.
7. All of the past captains of the Axiom are named after Pixar employees.
8. Audio Designer Ben Burtt created 2,400 sound files for WALL-E. He was also the sound designer for the first Star Wars film, which had approximately 800 sound files. This film has more force field noises than any film Ben Burtt has ever worked on.
