Is Burn-E 2008's third-most-adorable robot? Discuss.
- Video Games
The most adorable and second-most adorable — I’ll let you decide who’s in which place — have to be Wall-E and EVE, from Pixar’s super-awesome Wall-E. Just thinking of them makes me let out a little “Awww.” And NASA’s late Mars Phoenix Lander is a strong third-place contender after them. So sad! But I think the bronze is gonna have to go to my new pal Burn-E, the star of a seven-and-a-half-minute short that Wall-E lead animator Angus MacLane directed for the new Wall-E DVD. You can check the little guy out below (h/t) if you can’t wait to buy the DVD next week. Burn-E, whose adventure takes place at the same time as Wall-E, is a repair robot on the Axiom spacecraft. All your favorite human and technological characters make cameos as he struggles to fix a broken gizmo of some kind. And there’s a very nice score by Wall-E orchestrator J.A.C. Redford. Pretty great stuff, no?
UPDATE: Broken YouTube link replaced with a new one below. If this one disappears, too…well, go out and buy the DVD next week!
