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!

    Yeah not like this theory can be debunked when the captain says "Regenerative food buffet." and the computer replies unchanged. Then again in the same scene he asked about passenger count which is also unchanged.

  • Kozan

    If the humans don't know they're eating humans because the robots take care of everything, isn't it possible that the robots grow plants that the humans have no idea about?

    What if, since autopilot was instructed not to let humans go back to earth and didn’t tell the captain, just made a farm and hid it? And for the old thing, what if they just stay inside? Yknow… cause they’re old?

  • Ineichen

    I'd say the only real flaw with the theory is the negative medical side effects of cannibalism and a questionable nutritional value.

  • TC

    That was the first think i tought but than i realized some other stuff. First i have to say that is a right theory, my one is that they made a farm with wheat parnips and some more food like bananas or apples, but most importantly they also made a pig, a cow, and a chicken farm. I saw that there are many parts of the spaceship that where not accesible, and i think that is a room to put the human bodies and dispose without anyones vision. I also noticed that a great fertilizer is chicken, that means that their farms could work. they COULD make flavored human meat with what they have, but there would be no way to not smell it, IT IS IN YOUR FREAKING MOUTH AND FLAVOR/ODOR IS CONNECTED. BUT they would have to go to earth, considering that minerals would be necessery but in not a very large scale and they could live 700 years if they just used some other stuff i found. With the cows, pigs and chicken Some VERY caloric food can be made like butter and with the vegetable farm cereals that are also caloric. That would make obesity very quickly. I saw someone talk about artificial flavors but they are limited as they use too much minerals i saw someone say they had no plants, the robots could be doing it all. So they would NOT eat themselfes Also there is probably human bodies being used in the garden, just in a lower scale considering that they had to rise their lifetime, a normal human is about 120 years Ok they could need sun light, But the garden is probably on a glass place hidden. IF you don't believe this just remember from another reply that they need oxigen so there must be hidden plants somewhere and they gotta survive The bones will be composted for calcium. Earth might be not fertilizeble cuse of all the trash consuming earth, so they can't go back Yet If there is someting that the humans might notice remembre that the robots do all teaching. Now the most difficult one to debunk: The placebo effect. Well First needed to explain is they probably have some GREAT ADVANCED fertilier so that the Super Garden could work, Continuing on placebo, i think the placebo and faking food theory is actually half right. Like why would they do pizza flavor, for exemple? But if they had the materials some food is actually cheaper. So they are using placebo to but butter and other caloric materials into it but IT JUST ISN'T HUMAN MEAT. and they are making all on cups with straws because of that, get it? Okay most of this coment got deleted and i have to say MOST of stuff there is right, i think they have something to stop eldery cuse there is no elder captain on the scene(this is about the plant farm theory, this was control c control v)

  • Carrisebear

    What about the mass die off of all civilization? When the Axiom lands on Earth, I have zero confidence in them surviving more than 2 days. Without plants there’s no oxygen on Earth and the air is too toxic to breathe. There is nothing to eat. They have had no exposure to weather so when the big dust storm comes (as it seems to every day) they will stupidly stare at it in wonder and not seek shelter. They have no food, and no water. Their emotional resilience to deal with tough situations is non-existent.

    Your theory can't be correct. First of all for example when people knew there will be a lockdown because of covid 19 what we did is panic buying and bought everything that we need. I assume that something similar happened here they bought as many food as they can store on the ship that will last as long as it needs to last. When it comes to preservation I don't think I saw any ref on that movie but it's on the future I'm sure they got mote technologies in terms of preserving food. 2nd theory Maybe there is plants & animals but they're hidden in a secret room that only android / robots can access. Dead people theory Maybe they are just cremating them in the exhaust of the ship just like Yondu's cremation in guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2

  • kemo_2001

    this theory is scientifically very flawed, it violates the law of conservation of energy, if you have 10 people who only eat each other there total energy will still remain the same so you cant make them 11 by making babies because you cant make energy out of nothing, the number of humans eating each other will decrease generation after generation because calorie burning from moving/breathing

    There is a hole in this theory human bodies use calories for other functions like creating heat meaning they lose calories slowly so even if they eat each other they need some other source of food to make up for all the other burning calories

  • Edo Pronk

    He isn't completely wrong. For flights to mars they experiment with food based on bacteria which feed on methane. And that methane is produced by bacteria feeding on.... Human excrement. And I imagine on a longer voyage that will also include human bodies. So in a convoluted way, he isn't completely wrong.

    Well sure there’s no elderly people but think of the ships that went back to earth at the start of the film. Yes they went to check for life but why would the auto pilot send ships to earth if there not supposed to return what if they went back for some food. Also there’s no way that we got shown the entire ship so in theory we could have farms on there. But hey that’s just a theory a film theory and cut. Please make sure mat sees this I think it breaks the theory of cannibalism

    This is weird to me cuz we humans can clearly make artificial food. Humans need the essential minerals and vitamins right? So we can totally produce that in a lab. Even now we can produce artificial flavours which are similar to the original food, like chemicals which taste just like orange etc. Like even i remember in one of the episodes of Doremon 😂😅 Nobita was given just a CUBE that tasted like spicy rice, desert, and something else as well. So why in the Axiom they weren't producing pills or cubes or something like that. Maybe they are, only in liquid form that is. And about the dead bodies, maybe they burn them for the spaceship fuel or something 🤷🏻‍♀️😂

  • killshot7

    just watched your wonka vision episode on food theory and realized that this is in the far future where technology like this has definitely evolved, so im wondering if something like this might've been on the ship and could've been a substitute or even the main food supplier
