Unless you were too busy daydreaming about football this Sunday, you were probably sitting at home (or you might have heard about it on the news) watching the 2008 Oscars telecast and watching Pixar’s latest, the sci-fi-themed “Wall-E” take the Oscar home in the Best Animated Feature Film category. The category was pretty slim pickings this year, with “Wall-E” up against “Bolt” and “Kung Fu Panda”. The Oscars website has the acceptance speech by “Wall-E” director Andrew Stanton. It’s below. My producers Jim Morris and Lindsey Collins should really be up here to accept this with me. It’s been such an inspiration to spend time with a character who so tenaciously struggles to find the beauty in everything that he sees. It’s a noble aspiration to have at times like these.

Pixar’s “Wall-E” doesn’t open until June 27, 2008, but here’s your look at the film’s final poster (thumbnail to your left, bigger version below).

But soon, he will discover what he was meant for, as he adventures across the galaxy chasing his dream. Featuring the voice talents of Jeff Garlin, Benjamin Burtt, and Fred Willard, and directed by Andrew Stanton. Get walled in June 27, 2008.

Written and directed by Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo), the animated adventure features the voices of Fred Willard, Jeff Garlin and Ben Burtt. Wall-E cleans up June 27, 2008. Via:
A second trailer for Pixar’s animated “Wall-E” has arrived online, and it fleshes out (no pun intended) the storyline some more. We learn that Wall-E is a robot sent to Earth to clean up the mess humans left behind after we have abandoned the planet entirely; but something happens and Wall-E develops a “personality”, turns out to be very curious. Later, a second robot, Eve, shows up, and Wall-E falls in love. He ends up hitchhiking on her ship as she rockets off Earth and, presumably, that’s where the story continues in the movie. The year is 2700. WALL*E, a robot, spends every day doing what he was made for. But soon, he will discover what he was meant for. Some stills from the trailer:
If you were watching the Superbowl over the weekend, then you might have seen the latest trailer for Pixar’s sure-to-be newest hit, “Wall-E”.
