I have gotten a bunch of e-mails complaining that the trailer is old, but it isn’t. This new trailer is just very similar to the previously released teaser. The end of the trailer with Wall-E looking to the sky is exactly the same. What is added with this new release is the new Pixar intro featuring WALL-E and his discovery of his bug friend. You can read a lot more about the plot and characters of the film from the Pixar presentation at Comic Con through this link. I really think this might be Pixar’s best movie yet. You can watch the previous teaser trailer at this link.

What if mankind had to leave Earth, and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off?
Academy AwardÂ®-winning writer-director Andrew Stanton (“Finding Nemo”) and the inventive storytellers and technical geniuses at Pixar Animation Studios (“The Incredibles,” “Cars,” “Ratatouille”) transport moviegoers to a galaxy not so very far away for a new computer-animated cosmic comedy about a determined robot named WALLâ€¢E.
After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, WALLâ€¢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 WALLâ€¢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, WALLâ€¢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 WALLâ€¢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 cockroach, and a heroic team of malfunctioning misfit robots.
Filled with surprises, action, humor and heart, WALLâ€¢E was written and directed by Andrew Stanton, produced by Jim Morris, co-produced by Lindsey Collins and features original and innovative sound design by Academy AwardÂ®-winner Ben Burtt (“Star Wars,” “Indiana Jones,” “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial”).
