In 2805, Earth has become uninhabitable; all humans reside on ships in space, while trash-compacting robots work to clean up the destroyed planet. So much time has passed that a sentient (and hopeless romantic) WALL-E is the only robot left, befriending only a cockroach. One day, a new robot named EVE arrives from space to inspect Earth for signs of life, which WALL-E has unknowingly stumbled upon. Having developed an attachment to her, he follows EVE back to space to help save the planet, falling in love in the process. Disney Pixar's WALL-E premiered in 2008, receiving numerous awards and nominations upon its release.
