The Mindblowing Video That Links All Disney-Pixar Movies Together

The Mindblowing Video That Links All Disney-Pixar Movies Together

There's a long standing theory surrounding the Disney-Pixar universe and it is pretty simple to understand: Every single movie exists in the same "universe." No, we don't mean our actual universe but a theoretical universe in which all of the characters from all of Disney-Pixar's animated movies all exist in one world where they could all theoretically come into contact with each other, and as you'll see, many actually have...

In fact many have made a game out of finding the hidden clues and hat tips to previous movies and upcoming movies throughout Disney-Pixar's classics and some famous examples that get the fandom really excited include the Nemo teddy bear in Monster's Inc to a carving of Sully in Brave. These traditions have been around for nearly 20 years now and we're convinced the animators simply enjoy leaving small treasures and gems for fans to find and notice and enjoy in each and every one of their magical movies.


So what is the motivation from the animators and what's the story behind this long standing tradition?

Well Disney is no longer leaving us hanging and they've posted a video to the official Toy Story Facebook Page with a loud and proud message that our theories have been correct, they all do exist in one universe!

Wow, this is really crazy to have our little conspiracy theory confirmed, right? Watch the video on the next page and see for yourself!

Here it is in all it's glory:


The video isn't long and takes us quickly through a journey involving every single Pixar movie to date and gives fans the easy answer by showing us all where to find the "Easter Eggs" or hidden gems that bring all the stories together, some might say... full circle.

We're mostly surprised that the media giant shared the video on Facebook first but having our theory confirmed could have been posted anywhere and we'd still be so excited. From the video's beginning with Finding Dory's nod to Inside Out through a whopping 16 connections to other classics.

Of course some of us are still left wanting more because we know that all we truly see here are the connections between the Pixar movies. The movies are quite literally littered with Easter Eggs and hidden gems and this brief video is just a taste of all the clues animators have been dropping us for the last 20 years.


Honestly, it sure seems like Disney appreciates their fans and that they enjoy leaking the information we so desperately want. In the past they've given us other information straight from the source such as how the Pizza Planet delivery truck appears in almost every one of their movies or more interestingly, a few years ago Pixar released a video of their own showing how a toy ball from one of their ORIGINAL shorts (well before the real fame kicked in) has worked its way through many, many Pixar movies including Toy Story and even more recent films as well! What an adorable way for Pixar to pay tribute to its roots in animation!
