The final trailer for Pixar's forthcoming masterpiece, Wall-E, is now online in HD Quicktime. We're salivating at the prospect of Pixar taking on the science fiction genre properly - who else remembers the brilliant sci-fi opening to Toy Story 2? It's going to be a good movie summer!

Wow! Its ages since I've seen anything Wall-E related and this is just breath-taking. I actually welled up a little at the genuine cuteness.

Given the almost photorealism of the world in some places, I was a tad annoyed when that stylised, blobby human showed his face, but I can't say i'm surprised and frankly its a minor issue.

I am so going to see this!

I love Pixar films and I would have said my favorite is Toy Story just because its one of the few disney classics I was able to actually see in theaters(in Disney World of all places), but I think Toy Story 2 is an all around better film in terms of its themes and characters. The barbie scene in the toy store is hilarious.

But honestly, I really like all the Pixar films, excluding Cars and Monster's Inc. which I haven't seen.

Apparently Wall*E was one of the original stories pitched when they thought of what movies to make when Pixar was formed, so I doubt I will be dissapointed.

It looks like it will be a great addition to Pixar films (Cars being the only Pixar I didn't like).

Since it comes out the day after my birthday, I'll probably go see it.

Not the only time, but to be honest I hardly go to the cinemas as is (maybe 10 times a year).

I'm pretty convinced from this trailer now I'll really enjoy the film.

I can't wait. Hope to take my 4 year old niece to see it... I'm sure she'll love it, her favorite film is Finding Nemo so this could be quite fitting.

Wall-E looks a lot like the Nintendo Robot from the 1980s as well as Johnny 5. I will therefore love it more.

This year just seems to get better by the day! My favorite Pixar film is Finding Nemo, I believe I've watched it at least over 6 or 7 times. razz

Wall-e looks frighteningly similar to Johnny 5 (with Short Circuit being perhaps the greatest movie of all time wink ), but it still looks like a badass movie.

I'm incredibly afraid this will be another "Cars", since it was birthed from the same minds that seem to have lost their momentum inside Pixar. Toy Story and the lot just don't work and aren't made like they used to be.

Don't get me wrong, every Pixar movie has been fantastic if not close to it, but there are obvious better ones than others. I was more than happy Brad Bird picked it up two fold with "The Incredibles" and "Ratatouille". I can only hope Wall-E ends up on the side of the Toy Story movies and "Finding Nemo".

The only "Cars" that Pixar made was "Cars", Atom. No loss of momentum, just one small falter.

I would consider "Monsters, Inc." to an extent on the lossy end of Pixar as well. I'm more partial to the newer Pixar creative minds. Like I said, all of the movies are great, but there are obvious better ones. The 'John Lasseter, Joe Ranft, etc.' group's last work was "Cars", so I would consider momentum of the 'Americana/social lesson' story (Toy Story, Toy Story 2, A Bug's Life, Monsters, Inc.) from the group to be lacking in the last work. Brad Bird has seemingly filled this in with his two movies.

Thus, I'm worried about "Wall-E" as the last work, "Cars", was extremely lacking. I hardly see how that comment is -1'able.

Personally Cars is the only one I don't love (and I actually didn't completely hate it), I've yet to see Ratatouille (can't wait to). I've been excited for Wall-E since it was announced, I love the concept of a Pixar robot movie, everything looks beautiful, cute, etc. However, I hope this trailer didn't do the film justice, because right now it looks meh. This is the only thing that has thrown me off it. It looks incredible, and I will definitely see it as I love Pixar, but it doesn't look all that interesting or engaging to me.

Monsters, Inc. is actually probably my second favorite Pixar film (second to The Incredibles).

Heh, you're an unfair -1 magnet, smile I agree, I don't see how that post deserved any positive or negative rating.


As for the trailer, my internet's having speed problems and I haven't been able to watch it yet. sad

I've removed the -1 from Atom's earlier post, as it was indeed rather ridiculous.

Isn't Wall-E being done by Andrew Stanton, who did Finding Nemo? I agree that Lasseter's films have had something of a 'only one idea' feel to them, but Nemo was really quite brilliant, so I have high hopes for Wall-E.

Id have to say Ratitoulle has been my favorite. All of the films are so great, and so family based that it'll warm your heart. I always have liked Ratitoulle becuase of its original-ness and whenever I watch it, my dad always grills a beautiful steak and my mom always makes corn on the cob and I always grab a bottled coke. Its always a great night whenever I watch it!

Incredibles is also fantastic. Great storyline, nothing like Pixar has ever made before. The effects and animation are simply amazing. Toy Story is simply a classic. Wasn't that like, the original/ first animated movie?

All Pixar and Pixar Disney pictures are always great. The animation is so persice you wouldn't even know the difference between that and reality!

I think he did. I always watch the behind the scenes. I think he did different things for both movies, even more Pixar movies in fact!however, in all of them I think he did different things.

I seriously don't know what to expect from this and I still don't see the point of this. BUT I'll find out eventually.

I absolutely loved Ratatouille. It wasn't too 'kiddy' and it made me so... damn... hungry.

Wall-E looks great. Pixar has never worked on a Sci-Fi movie, and this really excites me. Isn't this Pixar's last movie that was thought up that one day? I remember seeing a bunch of napkins with all the Pixar masterpieces on it that was created at a lunch.
