In the movie Wall-E there are several places which I could not understand.

  1. How did earth change to trash? Did any World-war 3 happen? Or did any Atomic war take place? Did men destroyed the environment totally?
  2. Why Wall-E was made? I suppose to collect the dumps. But who made him and why was he alone? Surely who made Wall-E did not make him alone? Where were others?
  3. Why B&L took the responsibility to bear the expenditure of let mankind survive in their spaceship? It looks like they somehow are responsible for what happen to earth in that movie. But how?

I could not find any answers.

Did you not see all the broken Wall-Es in the movie? –  AidanO Oct 25 '12 at 14:53
    
No. I did not. I have only seen Wall-E(2008). Are there other parts of Wall-E? –  Mistu4u Oct 25 '12 at 15:40

No, it's in Wall-E(2008) if you pay attention. Not even all that hard actually –  im so confused Oct 25 '12 at 15:43

Yeah the movie answers all your questions fairly well, IIRC. –  DisgruntledGoat Oct 26 '12 at 11:53
    
Agreed with everyone else; the entire movie explains all the questions you've asked here. –  Terrance Shaw Nov 3 '12 at 9:21

Wikipedia provides answers:

  • In 2805, Earth is covered in garbage due to decades of mass consumerism facilitated by the megacorporation Buy n Large.

  • BnL evacuated Earth's population in fully automated starliners in 2105, leaving behind trash compactor Waste Allocation Load Lifter – Earth Class (“WALL-E”) robots to clean the planet, but they eventually stopped operating and Earth was left abandoned.

  • One WALL-E unit has managed to remain active by repairing itself using parts from other broken units.


And from the IMDb FAQ:

How was Operation Clean-up supposed to work?

  • According to Andrew Stanton ... the plan for Operation Clean-up ... was to use large machinery to incinerate massive sections of trash at once, after the WALL·E units had cubed and stacked it.

I cant resist asking is there any prequel of Wall-E? If isn't how did wikipedia know about it? Is it based on any famous novel? –  Mistu4u Oct 25 '12 at 14:07

@SubirAdhikari - There used to be a Buy'N'Large website that was used to promote the movie, and it had all these details about Wall-E's world. Sadly, the site has since been taken down. –  System Down Oct 25 '12 at 14:44

@SubirAdhikari - More info about BnL can be found at Pixar Wiki –  Oliver_C Oct 25 '12 at 15:00
