Check it out!

We finally get to see a little more story and additional characters but it seems like Pixar wants to keep the plotline a surprise, which is the way it should be.

I'm not blown away by the trailer, but I have a feeling it's going to rule the box office this summer. Should be big!

Looks good! And very different from the other Pixar movies. Interesting use of the music from "The Great Escape".
It seems like Andrew Stanton was one of the first Pixar directors to sort of break away from tradition by not using Randy Newman, and not having "outtakes" over the credits for "Finding Nemo".
But how much do you want to bet that WALL-E finds the remains of a pizza delivering truck in the ruins on Earth?

"WALL * E" trailer soft-pedals the more controversial aspects of this new Pixar film

Pixar does it again.

Creating yet another original story with a very appealing likeable main character.
Very cute [cheers]

I saw the model remote toy for Wall*E at an electronic expo last month here at Disney on the main lot.
Not a small toy. Should be in demand from the toy collectors, as it looks very cool.
You'll probably have to take a few Mcfarlenes down off the shelf to make room for it though.

The guy who needs more credit is Ralph Eggelston, Art Dirtector extraordinaire. On Wall-e, he was kind and supportive of my stuff, yet I never felt like my stuff got lost in the shuffle of Visual Develpoment. As a consequence I see a lot of my designs on the Earth portion of the trailer, and I must say that it is all due to Ralph. He asked for me based on the stuff I did on Incredibles, and I had a lot of fun on the picture working with him.

Looks a-mazing.
This is gonna be their biggest money maker yet.

They are wasting a lot of money on trailers.. I don't know anyone who doesn't want to see it already.

I read that Jim Hill article, and it made me even more anxious to see the film. I love how Wall*E depicts the humans of the future ... [no spoilers please] ... Stanton isn't afraid of pushing the envelope that's for sure.

I'm kind of glad the marketing dept. decided to omit most of the human scenes from the trailers, as it would probably create unnecessary controversy. It also instills a sense of mystery around the movie which is rare these days with plot revealing trailers.

[Edited spoilers]

This does look great! For sure looks like it will push the bounds a little. While I did enjoy Cars and Ratatouille I have not felt this pre release excitement since the Incredible.

You mean how 700 years into the future, everyone will look like Jim Hill? [funny]

Didn't Pixar go into outer space at the beginning of Toy Story 2.

Or doesn't that count since that was a video game?

You know, what I'm really liking about WallE is how it relies so much on pantomime and body language! Character animation is based on this core and it's refreshing to see that it is at the heart of bringing this character to life!

So far this seems (crossing my fingers) like this movie is a break from WAYYYYYYYYYYYY over used dialog in the past several animated films.

For example: When Wall-E is in the girl robot's spaceship, and Wall-E pats on the empty seat space next to him. That is a million times more charming & universal then, hearing a celebrity voice saying, "Hey Baby, why don't you just sit your sweet cheeks down here next to me!?"
