Wall-E — the third trailer is now up!


Click here for the newest trailer for Pixar’s WALL-E. The graphics look fantastic, of course, but the story — more of which is revealed here than in any previous trailer — remains something of a mystery.

Incidentally, the bit with the bra reminds me of something I read in Entertainment Weekly — way, way back in 1992 — about the making of Disney’s Aladdin, and the improv that Robin Williams did there:

Williams was especially fertile extemporizing as still another character, the narrator whose comic sales pitch (“Look combination hookah and coffeemaker!”) opens the movie. “We brought Robin in, pulled the sheet off a bunch of props and let him go to town,” says Goldberg. Sometimes he went a few towns too far. “He pulls up a bra and comes out with, ‘Look at this, a double slingshot!’ Then he looks at it kind of pensively and says, ‘I should have called her.’ We almost used it.”

One wonders if that would have been going “too far” nowadays!

MAR 13 UPDATE: Jim Hill looks at how this trailer downplays “the more controversial aspects” of the movie’s “social satire”.

MAR 14 UPDATE: Chris Thilk finds “Judeo-Christian overtones” in this trailer that, I must admit, never occurred to me — though I have previously noted the character named EVE and the implicitly spiritual, even theological, distinction made in an earlier trailer between what WALL-E was “built” for and what he was “meant” for.
