Pixar Animation Studios, the innovators behind Toy Story, Finding Nemo, and Ratatouille, created its latest genre-defying film with an intriguing and unorthodox question in mind: What if mankind had to leave Earth, and somebody forgot to turn off the last robot? WALLE (Waste Allocation Load Lifter-Earth Class) is this last, soulful robot. When his lonely work is interrupted by the arrival of the sleek probe-droid EVE, a rollicking adventure across the galaxy ensues. The Art of WALLE features the myriad pieces of concept art on which this fantastic, futuristic film was built, including storyboards, full-color pastels, digital and pencil sketches, character studies, color scripts, and more. Astute text-featuring quotes from the director, artists, animators, and production team-unearths the filmmakers' historical inspirations and recounts the creative process in intimate detail. This richly illustrated portal into the artistic spirit of Pixar reveals a studio confidentlypushing the limits of animation.
Tim Hauser has been a writer, creative executive, and producer in animation for over 20 years. He lives in Los Angeles. Andrew Stanton is the director of WALL.E and Finding Nemo, and is the co-director of A Bug's Life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Every bit as engrossing as the film was! When you tell people that the first 30 minutes of a Pixar animated film has no talking, they understandably will be hesitant to watch it... which is their loss! This "Art of" book is every bit as enchanting as the movie, itself. The concepts art for Wall•E,it(him)self is amazing to see. Two thumbs WAY up for this book!

Editorial Reviews

REBECCA MURRAY, ABOUT.COMThe perfect companion piece to PIXAR's animated science fiction tale, The Art of WALL-E is not just a pretty coffee table book. The Art of WALL-E is a fascinating look behind the scenes at the origin of WALL-E and the film's development.Tim Hauser's The Art of Wall-E (Chronicle) provides a mesmerizing behind-the-scenes look at the movie's origin and creation, lushly illustrated with reproductions of concept art (storyboards, character sketches, and full-color pastels, and more) accompanied by production crew quotes. The coherent text traces the importance of visual storytelling in the film, which has very little dialogue, touching on silent movie comedians, pantomime acting, and the creative freedom of animation. This handsome volume will appeal to teens interested in the history of cinema, movie production, and animation, and would make an intriguing addition to classroom studies in these areas. - School Library Journal
