Set in a galaxy not so very far away, Disney/Pixar's "WALL.E" is an original and exciting comedy about a determined robot. After hundreds of lonely years 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 is whisked back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word on board the luxury spaceship Axiom that it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, WALL.E chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most incredible 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 cockroach, and a heroic team of malfunctioning misfit robots.
"WALL.E" is the latest film from Academy AwardR-winning writer-director Andrew Stanton ("Finding Nemo"), who joined Pixar in 1990 and went on to write the first five Pixar features, co-direct "A Bug's Life," executive produce "Monsters, Inc.," and win an Oscar for Best Animated Feature for "Finding Nemo." Jim Morris was the film's producer, with John Lasseter serving as executive producer.Tickets are now on sale at the El Capitan box office (6838 Hollywood Blvd.), on line at www.elcapitantickets.com, or by calling 1-800-DISNEY6.
