Andrew Stanton interview

On Collider.com, Cal Kemp speaks to Andrew Stanton, writer-director of the new Pixar film, Wall-E.
...everything I wanted to do was based on the love story. I wanted the last robot on earth. That was the sentence that we came up with in '94. I have to get everybody off the planet. I have to do it in a way that you get it without any dialogue. You have to be able to get it visually in less than a minute. So trash did that. You look at it, you get it. It's a dump and you gotta move it. Even a little kid understands that. And that makes WALL-E at the lowest of the totem pole and allowed him to sift through everything that we've left on the planet to show you that he's interested in us. So I had to look at everything from the point of view of what will you get visually without having dialogue describe stuff to you.
Thanks to Billy Mernit for the link.

Wall-E opens in the UK on 18 July.
