I’m stunned at how much emotion the little robot can convey. Unlike the very anthropomorphic characters of Robots, Wall-E looks a lot like a realistic robot. And yet, it is full of expression, even in a still image like this. And I think this combination is at the center of why the character seems so interesting to me.
This poster doesn’t add much to the one we had before, but it does advance the job of getting the public acquainted with the main character. And I’m happy to say that I’m looking forward to this movie more than ever.
