The Future According to Pixar: A WALL.E Study Guide

Screen Education
Issue 51 (2008)

Abstract: What do you think Earth will look like in 700 years? That is the question that the animators of the Disney/Pixar film WALL E (Andrew Stanton, 2008) have tried to answer. The animators used contemporary issues like garbage disposal, obesity problems and the effects of big corporations and excessive consumerism as the basis for their science-fiction story. Although the film is certainly attractive to children, its themes are quite sophisticated. WALL E is a wonderful opportunity to help students understand the language of film, while, at the same time, celebrate the terrific art of animation and the storytelling process.
