Whether you’ve just been curious or you have your own theories about it, the idea of whether the Disney movies are at all connected has likely crossed your mind. Many have posited that the people behind our favorite animated flicks leave “easter eggs“—treasures that are hiding in plain sight—in the films they create (Mickey’s appearance in “The Little Mermaid,” Lady and the Tramp’s appearance in “101 Dalmations,” for example). Well, finally, the Disney Pixar Company is here to confirm all of your suspicions! In a video posted to the “Toy Story” Facebook page, the company officially confirms that easter eggs exist in its flicks. And not only that, it shows you where to find them. There’s an extreme level of subtlety, so don’t worry if you’ve never picked up on these clues before. For example, who would have known that Sulley from “Monsters Inc.” actually appeared in “Brave”?
Pretty out of this world, right? Yes, but certainly not outside of Disney’s incredible land of make-believe. The video shows a whole host of examples from various films, and each and every one will blow your mind.
You may even have to watch the video a couple times through because, let me tell you, you’re certainly not expecting these, and you have to look closely to catch them all. Then, replay, you know, just to let it sink in.
Told you it was incredible! Makes you want to go back and re-watch them all, doesn’t it? Now that you have the official confirmation that Pixar does this with essentially every film, you can try to be on the lookout for this sort of thing from now on. Watch the video below to see 150 more hidden Pixar easter eggs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=18&v=ejgaEbKT1sA You have to wonder if the Pixar creators are doing this not only for amusement but for efficiency. Why bother drawing a new toy for a kid’s room in a passing scene in “Up” when you can just use existing toys from “Toy Story,” right? The next film to be released, “Coco,” comes out Nov. 22. Watch it very carefully to see if you can find the character that’s making a cameo!
Something tells me you may even have to watch it a few times, but as with most Disney movies, I’m sure it’ll be something you’re happy to do! [h/t: Hello Giggles]
