I don’t know what it is about Pixar’s upcoming Wall-E, but he’s such an endearing robot and the movie isn’t even out yet. I think people respond to him in a way that they haven’t responded to an animated character before. It’s like there is this strange connection for the little guy. We’ll see if that carries over when the movie comes out.
Disney and Pixar have created a live action Wall-E and the little guy is just as cute.
