WALL-E is one of the important classics and contemporary films that will be added to the Criterion Collection. A bunch of extras will be included in the special edition 4K Blu-ray release of the movie.

The film has been released in 4K before, but the box art for the Criterion version is better than the standard 4K version. The set comes with a three-disc set that includes a student film, a documentary on Pixar, and script notes, as well as a slightly better HDR master.

Seriously, this is such a fun cover.

WALL-E is the first Disney/ Pixar movie introduced to the collection, and is one of only a few animated movies. It's hard to think of a Pixar movie that's more deserving, despite being extremely short on dialogue, it's able to capture the attention of kids and adults alike.

WALL-E will be available from Criterion on November 22nd, along with a 4K restoration of Malcolm X.
