One of the things that impresses me most about Pixar as a production company is their attention to detail and their ability to deliver a product time after time that continues to give more and more. For example, with every one of their DVD releases thus far they have always included an additional short film that features one of the main film’s characters. If you remember back to last year with Ratatouille, its release to DVD contained a never-before-seen animated short called “Your Friend the Rat,” which featured more of Remy and his brother Emile.
For the DVD release of WALL-E, which will undoubtedly be closer to Christmas since the film doesn’t hit theaters until this Friday, Jun 27, they are rumored to be preparing a short film called “BURN-E.” And according to a report over at Pixar Planet, BURN-E is about a second cute little robot:
Though the scoring to Wall-E finished the end of April, we went back today (Wed) to record music for a small little short that’ll be an extra on the Wall-E DVD when it comes out. The short is called “Burn-E” and is about a robot named… you guessed it… Burn-E. Music was by JAC Redford (orchestrator on “Wall-E”) and though I didn’t catch the director’s name, he came out at the end to say hi. Nice that there are some extras planned for the DVD. Of course Wall-E itself will be out in theatres in… less than 10 days!
And while we don’t have any details beyond that, we are completely entranced by all things WALL-E at this point as it appears to be one of Pixar’s more beautifully animated works to date.
In other WALL-E related news, our friends over at Slashfilm pointed us in the direction of a beautiful set of posters from artist Eric Tan, who has done posters for everything from Raiders of the Lost Arc to The Incredibles to X-Men. Just click on the posters below to see more.
