    More BURN•E Details? [Updated]

    BURNE, Rumors, WALL-E

    Posted by Thomas • June 26, 2008

    /Film reader DC sent into the site some more information on BURN•E.

    In the feature film there is a sequence where Eve and WALL-E fly around the Axiom Starliner, and enter through a door locking a poor welder bot on the outside of the ship. The bot bangs his fists against the door after he realizes that he has been locked out.

    says the article. /Film adds that bot is complete with a logo akin to our mockup (pictured). Read the article to see what /Film’s Peter Sciretta thinks the short will be about. 

    UPDATE: An anonymous comments points out that BURN•E can be seen in the "A Space Journey In Sound" featurette quite clearly at about :58 seconds.

    Next Pixar Short: BURN•E

    BURNE, Short Film, WALL-E

    Posted by Thomas • June 20, 2008

    A Pixar Planet Forum member, miafka, who is a member of the orchestra for WALL•E, pointed out today some information about the next Pixar short film.  

    Though the scoring to Wall-E finished the end of April, we went back today (Wed) to record music for a small little short that’ll be an extra on the Wall-E DVD when it comes out. The short is called "Burn-E" and is about a robot named… you guessed it… Burn-E. Music was by JAC Redford (orchestrator on "Wall-E") and though I didn’t catch the director’s name, he came out at the end to say hi. Nice that there are some extras planned for the DVD. Of course Wall-E itself will be out in theatres in… less than 10 days!

    says miafka. Hopefully more information on this soon. 

    Thanks Martin.
