Taking a glimpse into what could be a future illustration of our planet, WALL-E does a great job of portraying the consequences of humanity’s poorly made decisions. It all starts with WALL-E left by himself after the earth was declared unsustainable. He is left there to clean up all of the waste while humans hang out in a spaceship, the Axiom, somewhere in space and await their return home. During his lonely mission, he encounters a sleek new robot girl named EVE, in which he develops a crush for. WALL-E and EVE then develop a friendship and find themselves in quite the adventure.

Later on, EVE gets deployed to earth in an attempt to search for any signs of life. When EVE first landed, WALL-E was in love at first sight. In an attempt to impress her, WALL-E invited her over to his place where he showed off his collection of interesting things he found while sorting trash. When EVE is presented the seedling, she is programmed to automatically collect the sample and go into standby mode to wait for the human ship to pick her up. WALL- E couldn’t stand to see his crush leave him so he grabbed onto the hull of the ship and followed her.
The Axiom, the humans’ new ‘temporary’ home, is a ship somewhere in interstellar space. The vegetation sample was to be taken there for further processing and ultimately to decide if the humans should return to earth or not. Aboard the Axiom, robots and humans are...
