Film Theory: Wall-E's SECRET Villain (Disney Pixar's Wall-E)

Eric Beilmann

I wonder why all that garbage is still even there. The time it takes for plastics to biodegrade completely is about 450 years and it can happen much faster in the right circumstances such as direct sunlight. So those towers that have a lot of surface area that can get direct sunlight are going to be weakening and collapsing all the time. Glass garbage would still be around but instead of stacking huge towers of it you can just grind it up back into silicone dioxide or basically sand.

The main problem I had with the microbots was how strong they are and how much weight they can carry without being crushed, not how difficult the computation behind their functionality is.

Huh- I kinda thought the point that the BnL corporation being the real villain was obvious? Especially when you consider that even when there was proof brought to the "head AI" of the ship, it refused to let them go home. Not to mention, this would be reflective of real life too- the majority of the harmful waste produced in the world, is produced by about a hundred corporations. Yet most conservation media portrays it as a problem created by the average citizen. Wild, right?

Replying to my own thought- it's actually hilariously telling, in some capacity, that the humans on the ship actually seem extremely minimalistic in life style. They have their chairs (which, if I remember correctly, act as a bed, computer, telephones, and dresser), their jumpsuits, and the cookie cutter style rooms. All of it seems to be devoid of personality or customization. and I don't recall seeing any stores selling anything like knick knacks or clothes, or anything at all. So the concept of it being wholly the problem of the corporation, really fits with this.

Mat Pat... Your Theory is Wrong! and here is why... If BNL really wanted to make money they wouldn't go to space because it would give them neutral profit. All the fat people in space don't have jobs because the robots work. therefore they can not earn money for themselves. since they still consume BNL, BNL must either A: Give their products away for free. Or B: the consumers have a "Universal Income" as Elon Musk says. But if they had a universal income, it would be from BNL because they're the ones who rule the spaceship. Besides, even if BNL did get profit, which is impossible, then WHAT THE HELL WOULD THEY SPEND IT ON? Since everything is given to BNL on a silver plater already, Earth or space, it makes no sense to spend money going to space.

So matpat one question if everyone on earth is in space and bnl controls everything wouldn’t the concept of money be irrelevant? At that point bnl wouldn’t have any need for it and it’s not like anyone who isn’t a robot works on the ship so they wouldn’t be able to make money anyway also keep up the good work

But the question is, how would they profit. I am assuming that the starships dont cost money. If they did, then a very small amount of people would be able to afford it, since they dont work up there. And even if they did turn a profit, what would they do with the money. They killed the whole planet. The dollar would be worthless because it isnt backed up by anything. And their plan cant be to seize power once they reach earth, because the plan was never to return anymore. So I mean sure BNL could, but the question remains why they would

But if BL is all about money. What are the people on the ship doing to make money to pay for all the goods? Or is their waste fuling the ship at the same time. And if so, is tge money just going around in circles? And what the hell are the people in charge buying with all the money? Seems like the passengers allready live like kings. So..... BL wants money just so it can live a life of servitude? I dont get it. Please respond

I was thinking on the BnL's Monopoly and I think that it is very stupid, what is the point of have all the money and the audience if you are practically the planet, you don't have rivals, don't need innovation get the most richest person in the planet does not have sense if you are de only and can't be with an other person and a plan like that need to many years, that means that the original main behind the plan are dead even his grandsons are dead, so What is the point?

B n Large, your very best friend...you know I won't even pretend to understand how the economics behind this actually work. That line alone makes me think this theory is plausible. The fact it's still being repeated seven hundred years later makes this theory terrifying. Best case scenario I guess is that Buy N Large's main players died rich while their scheme kept running without them, leaving humans to gradually return to an Earth that was not in fact uninhabitable and start things up again with most of the world's knowledge ready for them with just a word. But even then, the Buy N Large plot is probably lost to history and thus likely to happen again...

The generation of trash isn't linear, but exponential with the "economy growth". 100 years ago the rate of trash generation wasn't even a tenth of what it is now. Plus 0,0005 isn't 1/20th of 1%. 0,05% is 1/20th.

If you have the collectors edition of Wall-E there is a set of featurettes on the 2nd disc that actually alludes to BnL. They are called the BnL shorts (they are essentially a set of spoof ads and video memos) but if you listen carefully, this theory is actually confirmed by PIXAR.

Why would they make the Wall-E robots as well, though? (If I remember correctly, BnL made them too) They cost money while not providing much profit (I think), and they probably make the "dumpster cities" harder to form.
