The Pixar films are connected.
This is an inarguable fact, as that weirdly popular Pizza Planet car, dozens of other easter eggs, and prolific, uncanny voice-acting of John Ratzenberger demonstrate. Shut up, no you are the nerd.
Just how connected the films are has been a topic of great debate here on the internet, with a bunch of theories floating around about how every film since ‘Toy Story’ tells a different part of a broader, scarier tale of the robot/animal/toy apocalypse.
But whether the easter eggs are just a bit of fun or Something Else Entirely, a new vid from Pixar demonstrates that there a bloody shitload of them. Enough to show a unique connection between every goddamn film, by the looks of it.
We see everything in the vid, from a patchwork of the ‘Brave’ family appearing in ‘Cars,’ to Doug the good dog from ‘Up‘ chasing the filthy rat from ‘Ratatouille,‘ to a memory in ‘Inside Out’ of a dinosaur from that film no one saw, ‘The Good Dinosaur’.
And while it’s honestly just a fun bit of trivia, I am taking the video as absolute confirmation that the films tell one single, allegorical story and we’re all going to end up as those sedentary humans from ‘WALL-E’. Give it a squiz below and decide for yourself.
