Robot Love

A nice interview with Andrew.

Andrew Stanton never set out to dwell in the idea of mankind in ruin.   In the early days of the project, the “robot love story” or “Trash Planet” wasn’t going to be a film that elevated the animation genre or exposed the potential dangers we face if we keep staying plugged in, hooked up and immobile.   It was going to be the next movie in the Pixar lineup, thought up by Andrew Stanton and Pete Docter at the infamous lunch meeting.  Years later, after both had gone and done other things, it was Stanton who picked it back up and along with co-writer Jim Reardon, turned it into a masterpiece.
