The star of Pixar’s ninth consecutive computer-animated hit was a plucky little sentient trash compactor — not much of a looker for a would-be Romeo. His neck suggested a wattle, and his clumsy metal hands could barely grasp the sleek, curved, eggshell-white fins of his lady love, the probe robot EVE. But WALL-E wooed his paramour — and moviegoers of all ages — anyway, even as the film’s story line sparked politicized debate over its depiction of a future Earth laid waste by consumerism. Director Andrew Stanton says he was baffled: ”People seized on things to plead their own cases. I just chose robots to tell a love story.”
