The Pixar Theory

I have written several posts on my favorite Pixar movies: Wall-E, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc., The IncrediblesUp, and the Toy Story trilogy. I have even stated those films as some of the greatest films of all time.

I would say I'm a decent Pixar fan. I've seen every movie. I have almost all of their films on DVD or BluRay. I was always sure there are much, much bigger and obsessed fans of their films out there in the  world.

And then I read this: The Pixar Theory by Jon Negrioni.

If you've seen the Pixar movies, or are just a sucker for movie-related conspiracy theories, I highly recommend reading that post. 

A lot of his theories are just wishful thinking. But they are really imaginative. Pixar is known to fill up their movies with hidden easter eggs. These easter eggs are references to their other movies. Most people ignored those references as just playful gags from the Pixar team. But this theorist asks a different question: What if those references are part of a larger story? 

I won't try to summarize his essay, but I'll give you the theory itself: Every Pixar movie is connected and shares the same universe and timeline.

What's even scarier? It's our very own human universe.

Oh, and there's an awesome time travel theory in there as well. 

Give it a read, you won't regret it.
