Product description

Pixar Animation Studios, the innovators behind "Toy Story", "The Incredibles", and "Ratatouille", has again reinvented the genre with "Wall.E". When a robot searching for a connection finds EVE, a sleek female probe-droid from outer space, he embarks on an adventure-filled journey across the galaxy. Inspired by classic films, and a brave venture in its own right, Wall.E is set to awe audiences in July 2008. The "Art of Wall.E" includes more than 250 imaginative pieces of concept art, including storyboards, full-color pastels, digital and pencil sketches, character studies, color scripts, and more. The astute text - featuring quotes from the director, artists, animators, and production team - unearths the filmmakers' historical inspirations and reveals a studio confidently pushing the limits of animation.

Review quote

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.
