WALL•E (or Wall-E) is a warm, endearing, delighting story about purpose and the incomparable, irrational power of love. Arriving in 2008, released between Ratatouille and Up, an unparalleled period of quality for Pixar animation, WALL•E is something very special indeed. Previously release by Disney on 4K, it’s been released again on Ultra High-Definition disc as a Criterion edition, an historic first, this set is packed with special features old and new, looking the very best I believe it possible can for our home theaters, and one hopes simply the first Pixar film to get the Criterion treatment. In short, this release is on point!

Thanks for the review Neil. I had no idea this was coming and from Criterion to. I haven’t seen this movie since it’s release and initial blu ray. I just might be upgrading.

A nice look back at a modern classic - great review, Neil.

I have a very mixed relationship with Pixar films. Most of them miss the mark for me, but Wall-E was the first (and perhaps only) one that I truly connected with. The film’s first half is so astonishing that I’m almost let down when humans show up in the second half - I’d have loved to have seen a version of this without people or speaking roles - but I’ve mostly made my peace with that storytelling choice in the intervening years.

So it’s stated it was previously released by Disney in 4K but no comparison in its picture quality to the former release?i i.e. is it noticeable??

I don't have either disc, but I would assume they'd share the same master.
