We’ve long suspected that every Pixar movie from Toy Story to WALL-E takes place in the same universe.
From a Nemo teddy bear in Monster’s Inc to a carving of Sully in Brave, the animation studio has been leaving hidden gems in their films for more than 20 years.
And there’s a reason for that.
Through a video posted on the official Toy Story Facebook page, Disney would like to let us know that theory we’ve all suspected is absolutely true – the Pixar universe is connected.
Oh my spurs! You ain’t never seen Easter eggs like these, partner. ?

The video, which features short clips from every Pixar movie to date, shows fans exactly where to find the Easter eggs that bring them full circle.
Uploaded on Facebook, it begins by showing that Finding Dory features a nod to Inside Out and goes on to show no less than 16 other connections.
This of course by no means showcases all of the Easter eggs that Pixar has embedded within its films, but it gives us a good idea of just how connected the Pixar universe really is.
Disney has previously revealed other hidden gems, such as how the Pizza Planet delivery truck appears in almost every movie. And a few years ago, Pixar also released a video showing how a toy ball from one of their original shorts has made it all the way into Toy Story and other, more recent films.
