Inside Out Easter Eggs

Inside Out Easter Eggs

Pixar loves to hide Easter Eggs in their films and it is now one of the secret addictions we have when seeing their movies. Not only is their animation getting better and better on every movie, but their catalogue of items to hide in films is also growing. There are a handful of set things you should expect as easter eggs in Pixar films. References to A113, The Pizza Planet Truck, John Ratzenberger and a character from the movie that will be released after the one your watching. This is where we will start.

This is the trickiest Easter Egg to spot, so I’ve coloured the Characters in. Rex and Woody are camouflaged in the Camouflage T-shirt this kid is wearing.

Sunnyside Daycare in Toy story 3 has almost the same climbing frame. The difference is that their slide has a twist in it. If your a believer of the Pixar Theory, there will be a link and some evolution there too.

Pizza Planet Truck

I know it’s Toy Story related and should have been added up there!
3 different scenes with the Pizza Planet Truck and this is where you’d find more movie references too. The Memory Orbs.

It wouldn’t be a Pixar movie without John Ratzenberger. John appears in the end of the movie, where he installs an upgraded console.
