Pixar unveils Easter eggs from its biggest movies

Pixar Unveils Easter Eggs From Its Biggest Movies

Just in time for Easter, Pixar is out with an Easter egg hunt of its own, unveiling some of the hidden references placed in many of its biggest movies.

Ever since the studio's first movie ('Toy Story') came out, the company has been hiding lots of sneaky little 'treats' in their films. The concept of adding an 'Easter egg' to a film isn't new: Slate points out that it happened as far back as in " 101 Dalmatians, which features blink-and-you'll miss them cameos from several Lady and the Tramp characters."

In the video, Lee Unkrich, the director of 'Toy Story 3,' mentions the Pizza Planet truck and A113, the famous classroom at California Institute of the Arts where many Pixar directors went to school. A hint for the first few spots? Keep your eye on that bouncing ball ... it appears in a lot more films than you probably ever realized.

There are tons of references from Pixar movies past and probably some teases of movies yet to come in this clip. How many can you spot?

Check out the full video here:

Pixar is an amazing company that takes pride in there work. If they want to hide something from a previous movie in a new film then more power to them for doing it. For them it's a fun little game.

While not being obssesive about spotting Pixar's "Easter Eggs", I've always enjoyed the subtle local references that show up in their films...like the Incredibles being in Oakland, and Emeryville closing for the big race in Cars.

Heh, heh. I noticed the Pizza Planet and bouncy ball cameos awhile ago, and they are both brilliant.

Oh, but there's more! Later in "Finding Nemo", a little boy in the dentist's waiting room is reading a Mr. Incredible comic book, and when Lightning and Mater are through Radiator Springs in "Cars 2", the movie on the sign is 'The Incredibiles'. NTM the Luxo ball isn't the only toy Boo hands Sulley at the end of "Monsters, Inc."... the squeaky toy is Nemo, and the doll is Jessie from "Toy Story"! Really tricky one here: Next time you watch "Brave", look for a little wooden Pizza Planet truck in the Crafty Carver's shop!

What is with this obsessive compulsive bs of "having" to find every error in a film or every little detail. Are you people to the point in your lives that you "have no lives" seriously? its JUST A MOVIE this is not real life move on. WOW get a life.
