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. Each new chapter will be released every two weeks, so don’t forget to come back for more!
You can read some of the chapter below, but you can only read the full chapter by clicking the PDF link. 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.
Stevin Parker (the first) was considered to be the world’s greatest detective for many years, mostly due to his impeccable solving of what was famously nicknamed “The Dinoco Incident,” in which an insurance agent tried to con the government out of millions of dollars in the 1960’s with reptile oil he allegedly sourced from a pipeline overseas. Parker foiled his plan by pointing out the man’s concoction was nothing but snake oil (almost literally), thus elevating himself to a comfortable status and authority as one of the world’s brightest investigators.
But this story isn’t about Stevin Parker I, or even Stevin Parker II. No, our tale begins with a person who is much less impressive, if only because he neither has a bowler hat or fancy magnifying glass. He doesn’t even have a red corvette to get him to school on time, but that is definitely because he’s not old enough to have a driver’s license. No, this story is about Stevin Parker III, and it’s also about how even the greatest detectives can be 15-years-old and failing calculus. Click here to continue reading.
