The Pixar Detective: Chapter 1

Hey everyone! Welcome to The Pixar Detective, a serial novel I put together based on the Pixar Theory. The following is a fictional story that explains the theory that all of the Pixar movies are connected and exist within the same universe, using original characters and artwork. The story answers a lot of questions you may have about this theory, but through its own ongoing narrative.

The story originally launched in April, and we’ve recently completed Part 1!

It is available as an iBook on iTunes, which you can check out here. If you can’t use iBooks, you can also download the PDF version. 

Once you’re finished, check back to our Table of Contents, where we’ll be continuing the story through Part 2. A new chapter is released every two weeks on Tuesdays. And please be sure to leave your feedback in the comments for us to read through. Enjoy!

Chapter 1: The Great Detective

Written by Jon Negroni. Illustrations by Kayla Savage. 

     The most brilliant detectives in the world are not the individuals with the biggest brains or even the most advanced gadgets and gizmos, although having a magnifying glass with an electronic interface is always useful for finding your way around a particularly messy crime scene.  The best detectives aren’t necessarily organized, tidy, punctual, or easy to get along with. Even the most successful detectives tend to find themselves relying on more than just being familiar, easygoing crime-fighters. No, the world’s greatest detectives are the most imaginative risk-takers that have ever decided to look through a magnifying glass, and we know this for certain because a great detective doesn’t decide to live a life of solving mysteries.  The greatest detectives have the truly important mysteries thrust upon them, and they probably wouldn’t have it any other way.

  1. I’m just wondering…is chapter 6 up yet? Cause you said that you would post it on June the 17th and it is now the 25th, but I can’t find the link. Thank you


    • If you go to the homepage, you’ll see that chapter 6 is the featured article! To make things easier, I’ll be making a table of contents soon.


  2. I JUST realized who Mary is, because of her name. You see it on one of the drawings of the movie it was in. Great integration!


  3. Definitely imagine that which you stated. Your favourite reason appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to take into
    account of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed at the same time as other folks consider concerns that they plainly don’t know about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as smartly as outlined out the whole thing with no need side-effects , other folks could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thank you

    • I wasn’t sure how to answer your question. So I asked our illustrator, Kayla Savage. She said, “Yes.”

      I guess that settles that.


  6. I just saw the short Lifted again and the way the flying saucer leaves the guy’s house with just his bed and a huge crater all around him looks a lot like what happened to Mary’s house. Could it be that she was abducted by aliens?
