New Wall•E Snippet Online: Updated
Aaaaaaawwww

02 October 2007  |  Written by Olly Richards  |  Source: allocine

Update: You can now watch this in much better quality, and in English, here. HD cuteness!

We're going to go out on a limb right now and say that Wall•E, Pixar's next, is going to be wonderful and will make us cry and hoot with laughter in equal measure. This is based on the roughly 40 seconds of footage we've seen so far.

The brief snippet that you can find here at allocine – which brilliantly means 'Hello cinema!' in French – doesn't show much new from the film, but there's a cute little interaction with the anglepoise lamp in the Pixar logo which should brighten a wet Monday afternoon.

Seriously, how cute is this little guy? He doesn't talk, but there's something about the character design that says everything he needs to. When he jumps with fright at nearly squashing his little cockroach pal? Brilliant.

All at Disney and Pixar are reluctant to give away any story details right now, although it's widely known that the film's about a little robot who is the last of his kind on Earth, charged with tidying up the fetid planet, which has been vacated by its grubby inhabitants, all alone. He apparently has an obsession with Hello Dolly and falls in love with a probe robot who is sent to Earth to monitor the clean up operation. It's also said that the film is largely dialogue free, which, given what we've seen so far, could be absolutely fantastic. Can't wait for this one.

RE: RE:
L: ED-209 Does anyone else think that the poster bears a striking similarity to Short Circuit?!sp; I thought exactly the same when I first saw it! Practically like a mini-me version of Johnny No. 5 still think this looks incredibly adorable and I'll look forward to the trailer. More

Number 5 is ALIVE!!
Nice to see that fond memories of the 80s masterpiece, Short Circuit found some friends at PIXAR. Let's just hope they kept Fisher Stevens aloooooooooong way away from the microphone. :-) (I know it's not a remake,sequel, prequel...type thing, dummy.) More

RE: Best Film of 2008?
Aw man, that logo is brilliant! I saw about 5 minutes of the beginning of this at Comic-Con, it looks like it's going to be good! I really like the idea of almost no dialogue. I hope they can pull it off. Wall-E's shape does mirror the anglepoise lamp a bit. More

RE: Best Film of 2008?
I'm really excited about Ratatouille, especially with Empire's glowing review, but now there's already this to look forward to as well. Looks really great. It's cool to get a trailer focusing on those cute little moments. Loved the little interaction with the Pixar lamp, particularly patting it on the head (or whatever you call that bit of the lamp). Looks like it's a good mix of sweet and silly, cute and fun. He's a properly well designed character, those big eyes are great. It's also really o More

RE: A robot has just melted my heart!
L: Acho I loved the previous little snippet that was online for Wall-E, but this is even better looking! Wall-E and the Pixar logo, Wall-E and his beetle - I think I've picked my film hero of 2008 already! (sorry Batman!) p; I think I might have to agree with you there - I just don't know what can surpass that because we've seen what the reboot of Batman is like (if not the actual Dark Knight film), so it won't be that much of a spectacular than if it was Batman Begins being relea More
