Wall-E on DVD

From the Humans Who Brought You Finding Nemo and Cars…

The Year’s Most Acclaimed and Original Film
Comes Home -- November 18!

Disney•Pixar’s Box Office Favorite
WALL•E
Out-of-This-World Single, Double and Triple-Disc DVD Releases and
Spectacular Hi-Def Two and Three-Disc Blu-ray™ Versions
Featuring Disney’s All-New BD-Live Network

Hilarious All-New Bonus Short BURN•E Debuts on all DVD and Blu-ray Versions!

BURBANK, California, November, 2008—The year’s most acclaimed and original film, an intergalactic story of the lovable robot WALL•E, comes home to Blu-ray hi-def and DVD -- November 18, 2008, courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, just in time for the holidays. Disney•Pixar's hilarious box-office favorite transports viewers to another galaxy with five different versions. Consumers can choose from two exciting Blu-ray disc versions and from three standard definition DVD versions. Each home entertainment release contains the feature film and a payload of fantastic bonus features, including an exciting all-new animated short film BURN•E, the story of a stalwart repair robot by the same name who is determined to do his job, but is foiled at every turn by WALL•E's adventures aboard the Axiom..*

The stunning Blu-ray release (both two and three-disc versions) of WALL•E offers audiences the chance to really enjoy the true colors, depth and sound exactly as the filmmakers envisioned it! Additionally, the Blu-ray Disc owners in the U.S. have access to Disney BD-Live Network that allows viewers to combine some of today’s most popular interactive communications platforms - chat, video messages, online interactivity, communal gaming and more - with their movie watching experience and provide exclusive access content to receive sneak-peaks of upcoming trailers, downloadable extras and more…

WALL•E is an out-of-this-world action-adventure filled with heart and humor that follows an extraordinary cast of characters on a fantastic journey across the universe. Oscar®-winning director Andrew Stanton’s (won Best Animated Feature, Finding Nemo 2003) beautiful story of WALL•E is a love letter to the Golden Age of sci-fi films. The film’s cast of exciting new characters has thrilled and delighted movie-lovers of all ages while once again showcasing Pixar’s amazing abilities to create entire new worlds.

WALL•E‘s voice cast includes Jeff Garlin (“Curb Your Enthusiasm”), Elissa Knight (Cars), Sigourney Weaver (Alien), John Ratzenberger (Toy Story), Kathy Najimy (“King of the Hill”) and Fred Willard (Chicken Little). Academy Award®-winning sound designer Ben Burtt (the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises) provides the endearing voice of WALL•E, the little robot who never quits.

In its theatrical release, WALL•E wowed critics everywhere with its adventurous story, combined with cutting-edge animation and an imaginatively detailed vision of the future. Claudia Puig of USA TODAY praises the film’s “breathtaking visuals” and gives it “4 out of 4 stars.” “WALL-E is a movie you want to discover,” enthuses Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly. The Wall Street Journal‘s Joe Morgenstern calls it “A stunning tour de force,” while Boston Globe film critic Ty Burr, dubs the film “A major visionary work, a sci-fi parable of astonishing scope and depth that is anchored by an adorable bucket of bolts.”

WALL•E Synopsis

After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, WALL•E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. EVE comes to realize that WALL•E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet’s future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, WALL•E chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most exciting and imaginative comedy adventures ever brought to the big screen. Joining WALL•E on his fantastic journey across a universe of never-before-imagined visions of the future, is a hilarious cast of characters including a pet ****roach, and a heroic team of malfunctioning misfit robots.
