The Walt Disney Company confirms all PIXAR movies are related
Los Angeles : In a surprising move, the Walt Disney Co. on Thursday confirmed the most feverish of movie fans' conspiracy theories.
They told the world that all of the Pixar movies do, in fact, exist in the same universe, run by an evil corporation inside Buckingham Palace.
The theory which was around for so many years was popularized in 2013 by online film critic Jon Negroni.
Some PIXAR fans have long debated that Room A113 — the classroom at the California Institute of the Arts where many Pixar animators studied — appears in many of the films, along with a Pizza Planet delivery truck.
The speculation was confirmed in two promotional videos published over the weekend — one on Disney's own Facebook page and one on the Facebook page for "Toy Story".
The videos connect "A Bug's Life" to "Toy Story" to "Monsters, Inc." to "Finding Nemo" to "The Incredibles" to "Cars" to "Wall-E" to "Ratatouille," all the way up to the most recent features, "Inside Out" and "Finding Dory."
How? For example in "Up," Carl Fredricksen's truck is outfitted with the same tires Lightning McQueen rides on in "Cars." Also in "Up," we see Carl's house float into the sky from inside the bedroom of a little girl — who's playing with a Buzz Lightyear toy plane and a Lots-O'-Huggin' teddy bear from "Toy Story 3."
Then a soda cap worn as a badge by Ellie in "Up" is from Taste-Like! Grape Soda — which Buzz Lightyear pitches in a TV commercial in "Toy Story."
And, many other points prove that they all are related, well, who knows what other secrets will be tumbled out of the closet when "Toy Story 4" is released in 2019.
So far Disney- which bought Pixar in 2006- have not commented on the speculation.
