About 4 years ago, I released a theory saying that the movie Wall-E was about cannibalism. It was likely what solidified my place as King of Ruining Your Childhood forever. Theorists, today I am doubling down on that theory. The proof is in the pudding, or rather, it is in the cup. Where does the food come from and what is in it? Get ready for another heaping helping of people!

But what about the fact that the humans when starting out were not as heavy as they are when we meet them and they would get heavier over time so there would at least be a decent amount of passenger loss

But Matpat it can't cannibalism because on Disney + Pixar in real life Has two episodes of wall-e The first episode was wall-e giving a ring back The second episode was About the food and every was saying it every taste like the food That was on that ship

Also if u remember there Is two doors in that go to space The trash and that short wall e movie They could have throw the body out there And ik u would say there was nothing there Wall-E and Eva was in space but they could have been moving the ship as will

But if AI is controlling everything then isn’t it possible that they could be maintaining farms that the passengers don’t even k about?

At the end of the movie, when they come back to earth and the people come off the ship, you can see in the background an old lady coming out, using a walker. Its the only old person i saw, old enough to need a walker. She also had gray hair. Since i only saw one though, im sure this theory still stands.

but this suggest that by eating people, theres free/purpetual energy which goes against the laws of thermal dynamics.

Fungus could support a large population if provided enough water. I'd argue that with the advancements they had at the beginning of their journey they could easily have modified fungus genetically to provide all the nutrition needed. Some fungi can even produce fibrous structures which is possible what we saw the robot chopping up. Maybe this is how they have gotten so far as fungi can both produce oxygen and a stable food source. What do you guys think¿
But… in order to reach and maintain that high a weight, you’d have to eat a LOT more than 2000 calories, let alone 1400

Ok. But remember, Mary lived on the ship her whole life, right? So why didn't she notice the giant pool in the middle of the ship? Or why did the captain of the ship not know about the jogging track? People only look at there screens, and never noitice anything else. So it woulkd be possible to fit a food section on this massive ship with put people knowing about it, and robots taking care of it. Yes. The ship is BIG, so the planners might have added a plant section to the ship in order feet to feed people. After they realised it was longer than 5 years, they reprogrammed it So the robots would know how to take care of plants. However not many food items involve plants, it all junk food, so idk, maybe they crammed 1000 animals into the ship like cows and chickens and they reprogrammed the robots to help reproduce the animals. Besides, elders might be in a different part of the ship doing bingo or something. We never see all of the ship, so it's possible. I rarely disagree with Mat pat so this is new. Keep ruining my childhood I love ur videos goobye

To be fair, we see that some passengers didn't even know they had a pool. And with everything automated, the reality is that there could very well be a robot automated farm around there somewhere. The pilot himself says that the only thing he does around there is make the daily announcements. So while, yes, if there was anything like a farm, he would be the one to have the best chance of knowing, but the reality is that these people seem to barely know how the ship works or physically is feels like a major flaw to the whole "this guy doesn't know what a plant is" bit. In regards to the lack of visibly old people, I would argue that these people are living terribly unhealthy lifestyles and live dramatically shorter lives. Alternatively, they have amazing health cosmetic care and simply don't visually exhibit signs of age. Furthermore, there would be no natural waste products if they were using it all in the development of a farm of sorts. It's a fun little theory, but it has some holes in it for me personally.

How can there be no old people aboard the Axiom and they also have a lifespan of 150? It would make your theory make even more sense if they had a lower life span and would also be logical because while eating other humans might be efficient it's obviously not healthy

8:35 That’s weak sauce. Man was living on average of 912 years before the Genesis Flood. And close to 600, 400, 200, 100 years after the Flood. With multiple generations in each hundredth interval. The 4 generations after Noah lived longer than the next 6 generations after them.
The Unvlog Channel
He didn't account for previous generations eating dead bodies, did he?
The Unvlog Channel
this theory seems pretty good, but relative to other theories of his that are good it feels more like connecting random plot holes into a conclusion when pixar clearly intended there to be AI-controlled hidden farms or an actual futuristic replenishing buffet or something.

How do they get passed the first 120+ years if they originally only had 5 years food supply? Would enough people have been dying in the first 100 years? It seems like a long gap to have gone without a steady food supply.

If they thought about a worst case scenario and couldn’t come back to earth there plan for unlimited food is cannibalism. They thought about everything else, even if the robot acted on its own it must of had a back up plan for food.

But to be fair, one of the characters says “I didn’t know we had a pool” Wouldn’t it be possible they didn’t notice a farm either?
Sibbidy Day ago
@Rafael Euzebio yeh I feel like that’s actually what happened. Everyone who I told this to could come up with a counter expect the straw thing, and they never explain it in the film as well
Rafael Euzebio
@Sibbidy He said that for oxygen production. Each adult human consumes 8 times of oxygen than a tree can produce, but i think that a farm is would be possible But that doesn't explain why they eat everything trough a straw, so the cannibalism is still possible
Sibbidy 11 days ago
He did say there would need to be more plants than humans so not at all. Also they didn’t know what a single plant was so they would’ve noticed at least one during their time on the ship

Austin James

Ok, clearly it's gonna be near-impossible to disprove this theory by going at the same perspective as Mat, so let's take this from a different point of view: Is there anything that truly confirms there isn't any plant life on the Axiom? Yes, the captain doesn't know what a plant is, but that doesn't necessarily mean there aren't plants on board. The captain barely knows the controls of the ship, so it's just as likely that he doesn't know the complete layout. Just like how cities and farms aren't located in the same areas, it's possible that the passengers are held in one area and plants in another, cultivated, cared for, and transported to the passenger area via robots. And, what's better, the cultivation area wouldn't even need to be that big, compared to the whole ship. They would only need to cultivate a select few plants, in order to account for all the necessary nutrients. Not to mention, the ships first took off in 2105, 84 years in the future from our current year, and with how quickly technology is advancing it's likely they'd've created a super food, one that provides all necessary nutrients, and even if they didn't have that in 84 years from now, they'd still have 5-10 years to create it (how long it would take for the original solid food supply to run out). Also, about the dead body issue, NASA is planning a system where they freeze the bodies of astronauts and have a robotic arm break the body apart. The Axiom likely implemented the same system, with the bits of the body then being expelled from the ship. This is a great theory and all but, after looking at the facts and possibilities, it just seems like a bit of a stretch to say wall-e is about cannibalism.

Okay but what about reproduction, we don’t see any hospital related places, only a part where babies in a nursery kind of place exist- so where do they come from? Is motherhood and fatherhood just nonexistent? You never see pregnant people on the ship.
Arnar Þór Skúlason
I feel like everyone forgot about algae and fungi... Sustainable, not plants, algae grow by photosynthesis and fungi on waste, together produce all necessary nutrients required by the human body and so on. Perhaps they originally had some other rations as well but the most logical thing to do is to have a backup plan (e.g. bioreactors) Incase they had a prolonged journey.

Matpat is a legit and fun film critic, but not really a biblical scholar (no offense is intended). May i suggest listening to the June 7, 2021, "One Creation Story or Two", podcast of the Bible Project. Now, you don't have to believe in the authority of the bible to learn about it, in this case, understanding the biblical creation narratives in their cultural context. And who knows? It might help you with understand Pixar movies.

but if a weight is high, the amount of calories to be taken will also be high. at least he's the same weight and still can't walk, otherwise he gets weaker. That's about 5000 calories for a 200-kilogram person. so i think it's a calculation error
