Talk to your kids about…


What does WALL-E learn about human interactions from watching the video of the musical Hello Dolly? How does he try to emulate that in his relationship with Eve? Although he has all the stuff in the world, why does he still crave contact with another being?

How do the film’s producers develop their characters’ personalities, even with very little dialogue? How do facial features, tone of voice and inflections all contribute to communication?

The moviemakers address social concerns such as consumerism, waste, interference from big business, lack of physical fitness, institutionalized childcare and the addiction to screens and virtual worlds. Which of these issues do you think is our biggest concern? What changes should be made to protect our current society from ending up like the characters in this film who are forced to flee from Earth?
