Not only are the clever folk at Pixar responsible for creating some of the most memorable animated movies of all time, it appears they’re also big kids at heart.
An Easter egg hunt!
It’s long been known that Pixar leaves hidden nods to other movies or projects in its work, known as ‘Easter eggs’. For instance, there’s a plush Nemo toy in a Monster’s Inc scene. Sometimes they’re easy to spot, and at other times they’re a ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ scenario.
Now the magnificent movie-making magicians behind some of our children’s favourite animated films have released an intriguing video showing just how each of its movies are linked. Did you know that the lead character from Inside Out is actually at the aquarium in Finding Dory? Or that there’s a link between Brave and Cars?
