Hal is a character in the 2008 Disney/Pixar film WALL-E. He also makes a cameo in Ratatouille and Wreck-It Ralph

Role in the film

He is a cockroach that is WALL-E's friend and pet. Hal is extremely resistant: although he gets stepped on by WALL-E and shot by EVE, he suffers no harm.

Hal likes eating Kremies as his food. He stays on Earth when WALL-E leaves the planet because WALL-E orders him to do so.

After the Axiom landed on Earth, Hal quickly approached the broken WALL-E and EVE, and returned to WALL-E's transport vehicle.

Trivia

  • Although Hal is never referred to on-screen by name, he is named after producer Hal Roach. This also provides homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey’s HAL 9000.[1]
  • The chirps that Hal makes were created by speeding up sounds made by a raccoon.
  • Hal and the Kremies he eats/sleeps in references the myth that roaches and Twinkies (what inspired Kremies) are the only things that can survive the apocalypse.
