Pixar's upcoming robot movie, Wall•E ("Wally") has now got a teaser poster, which Upcoming Pixar has shared. Does it look familiar? There's definitely a little Short Circuit going on there, and something else, which I can't, for the life of me, think of right now. But aside from just the look of the new teaser poster, there's also Wall•E himself, who looks like a smushed version of Number 5.
According to the teaser trailer, which is mostly exposition with only a little peek at the robot, the idea came together during a brainstorming session years ago, when the creators came up with A Bug's Life, Monster's Inc., and Finding Nemo. (They best get brainstorming again if this is their last!) So, it seems this little flick is about a robot who has been working for many years, but discovers his true calling much later in his metal life. Considering the fact that this is a robot romance, and he meets a cute robot named Eve, do they learn how to get it on and make robot babies -- the next form of evolution? Who knows? Whatever the case might be, we'll find out next year. Wall•E is scheduled to hit theaters on June 27, 2008.
