Video Reveals the 'Insane' Connected World of Pixar

Attention, obsessive Pixar fans: There's a non-zero chance Buzz Lightyear and a time-traveling Wall-E could one day meet for lunch in Remy the rat's restaurant. The AV Club reports that—despite being "frankly insane"—something called the "Pixar Theory" started gaining traction on the internet a few years ago. The theory posits that every single Pixar movie takes place in the same universe as part of a bigger narrative. Now Disney has come fairly close to acknowledging that theory as gospel, according to io9.

E! News reports that over the weekend a video was posted to the official Toy Story Facebook page that reveals all of the hidden Easter eggs connecting the Pixar films. A few examples: In Monsters, Inc. Boo gives Sully a stuffed Nemo; a wood-etching of Sully can be seen in Brave; Forrest Woodbush from The Good Dinosaur appears in Inside Out; and Inside Out's Riley Andersen appears in Finding Dory. Entertainment Weekly calls the video "mind-bending." (More Pixar stories.)
