Disney and Pixar join forces for this computer-animated tale about a wide-eyed robot who travels to the deepest reaches of outer space in search of a newfound friend. The year is 2700, and planet Earth has long been uninhabitable. For hundreds of years, WALL-E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) has been taking out the trash, and collecting precious knick-knacks in order to stave off the boredom of his dreary routine. Little does WALL-E realize that he has recently stumbled onto a secret that could save planet Earth, and once again make the ravaged planet safe for all humankind. When highly advanced search robot EVE makes friends with WALL-E and realizes the value of his remarkable discovery, she excitedly races back to let the humans know that there's hope for their home planet after all. But after centuries alone in space, WALL-E can't stand the thought of losing the only friend he's ever known, and eagerly follows her into the deepest reaches of space on the adventure of a lifetime. Along the way, the friendly trash-collecting robot who has always known what he was made for gradually begins to understand what he was meant for. Finding Nemo director Andrew Stanton returns to the helm for this family-friendly sci-fi adventure featuring the voices of Fred Willard, Jeff Garlin, and Ben Burtt.~Jason Buchanan

The artwork isn’t very good. They could have put a HD photo from the movie and it would have been marvelous. It would sell out. Same with the other Pixar steelbook releases the art work is average and lazy to me.
Both the audio and video quality of this Blu-ray release of Wall-E is superb. The regular blu-ray comes with a DTS-HDMA 5.1 audio track, and put to the test it sounds great on my surround sound system. The picture quality is also a big plus for the blu-ray. As for the 4k blu-ray, it has Dolby Atmos, which I can't really test, but i'm assuming it's also as good, if not better than the DTS track. The HDR of the movie isn't really noticeable in my opinion, but it does get pretty bright and has better colors.
Wall-E has never looked or sounded better than in this 4K release, the picture and sound clarity blew me away and is well worth the price to upgrade over previous releases. Easily one of Pixar's best films (for me, it's the best they've ever made), it's social and political themes are eerily prophetic, and the main character is one of the most lovable in all of animation. Don't miss it!
Though this one isn't near and dear to my heart, I wholeheartedly appreciate this
Pixar movie for it's intelligent, visual storytelling and endearing robot characters. Romeo & Juliet have got nothing on WALL-E & Eve!
This new 4k release is a solid one. The 4k video offers a nice improvement over the Blu-ray with a clarity uptick and strong HDR bump in the colors. There is a fine ATMOS track but if you don't have the right equipment to listen to it, the original, demo worthy 5.1 DTS HD Master Audio track is also included on the 4k disc. All special features from the previous Blu-ray are on featured.in this release as well.
4k release - 8/10
This is simply my favorite Pixar film ever and I’m so happy it finally released on 4K UHD Blu-ray. If you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for? The design of this steelbook matches the rest of then Pixar films that also released recently in 4K steelbooks.
In a distant, but sadly not so unrealistic, future where mankind has abandoned earth because it has become covered with trash from products sold by the powerful multi-national Buy N Large corporation, WALL-E, a garbage collecting robot and others like it has been left to clean up the mess. Wall-E is a great emotional and meaningful superbly animated story packed with fun and humor for all ages. This movie succeeds on every front! Don’t miss it.
