One of the great things about Pixar DVDs is that they always include an additional short film that is somehow related to main film. And with WALL-E, Andrew Stanton enlisted directing animator Angus MacLane — who, in my opinion is going to be the next big Pixar director — to direct BURN-E, a Rosencrantz and Guildenstern-esque side story about a little repair robot whose world is also impacted by WALL-E and EVE. As you will see, we do meet BURN-E very briefly in the actual film but we never get to see his entire story. This short film gives us a hilarious look at what happens to him. It has made its way online courtesy of Videolog.tv. Check it out below.
WALL-E hits DVD and Blu-ray on November 18th.
