Why Is WALL-E Rated G?
Spending a lifetime alone on a deserted planet, WALL-E amuses himself by collecting garbage including a brassier that he temporarily uses as a headpiece. The film’s limited dialogue leaves little room for language concerns other than some brief arguing. However, the characters often experience moments of peril. They are hunted down by other robots, caught in sand storms, electrocuted, hit by lightening and pushed into a garbage disposal. One character repeatedly shoots with the intent to destroy. A robot falls from a great height and smashes on the floor below. Disobedient robots are imprisoned. Brief, violent interactions occur between human and computerized characters.
In the short film, Presto, which proceeds WALL-E, a magician and rabbit are involved in numerous altercations. Characters are electrocuted, smashed, dropped from heights, hit with objects, and exposed to other types of vaudeville violence. A man has his fingers caught in a mousetrap, and is humiliated and taunted by his assistant.
