On a recent trip to Disneyland, I was bummed to find that the animatronic version of Wall-E wasn’t at the park to greet me. I guess he was too busy doing TV spots like the example below…

I almost can’t contain my excitement for “Wall-E” and if that pesky Batman film wasn’t releasing next month, that little boxy guy could be accepting my award for “most anticipated film of the summer”. Below is the continuation of my Q and A via phone with Ben Burtt for “Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”. He was kind enough to do a little bit on “Wall-E” but since its not as long as my “Skull” interview I scavenged the interwebs for some more Burtt nuggets. Luckily, fellow sound obsessed blogger Matteo Milani of USOproject.com has picked through the online trash to find a few more Burtt treasures, which can be found HERE. Also, canmag.com has a brief interview with the man, HERE.
