What We Can All Learn From Pixar's WALL-E

February 20, 2020

WALL-E, which is short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class, is the last functioning robot on the planet.

The film begins on an Earth that has been entirely abandoned by humans.

WALL-E’s wish for companionship is fulfilled when another robot called EVE arrives on Earth.

Embedded within this tale of action, heroism, and romance are some very hard-hitting societal critiques that make viewers reflect on the direction in which our world is headed.

The most obvious statement made in WALL-E is the dangerous potential of consumerism. 

The human beings in the film have been reduced to helpless, unthinking blobs with no ability to take care of themselves.

While WALL-E may be a G-rated animated movie, it contains messages that should resonate with viewers regardless of age.
