  1. This is a pretty minor comment considering the scope of your Pixar theory, but I feel the need to point it out anyway: Though you repeatedly emphasize that the postcard from Ellie and Carl on Andy’s wall suggests that Ellie was still alive during the time of Toy Story, I completely disagree. In fact, I think it’s more likely that Ellie is already dead at this point, and that Andy is keeping the postcard as a sort of memento after her death. The mere fact that Andy has chosen to hang the postcard on his wall rather than having it on a desk or somewhere in the mess of his bedroom clearly suggests to me that the postcard has been elevated to keepsake status, most likely due to her death (as Priscila before me commented, Ellie might have been an aunt or cousin or something of Andy’s, hence his possession of the card in the first place).
    This just occurred to me as I was reading; I have yet to ponder the implications of Toy Story 3 occurring after Up chronologically (though this wouldn’t even necessarily have to be so). Obviously, I could be completely wrong; I just thought it might be an interesting detail to ponder. I love the theory, by the way.


    • Though this in no way impacts the “Pixar Theory”, I do not think the postcard is evidence enough to determine the placement of Toy Story 3 and Up. However there is evidence that they are around the time of the BnL take over; Buzz has BnL batteries. I also am wondering if anyone can explain this to me: if the tree planted after the return of the Axiom is in fact the very same one appearing in a Bug’s Life, how can it exist in Up, before WALL-E?


  2. In the pixar detective, it states in chapter 2 that Mary wants to leave San Francisco In the summer. But it also states in the pixar detective, there was a map of Australia in her class room, she knows tons about Australia, and she wants to move to the Great Barrier Reef. Is it set in Australia or not? This would help for setting visualisation and character vocalisation, (especially since I’m Australian myself.) Thanks

    • Thanks for your input Harry! The class they’re in is Geography, which is why a map of Australia is on the wall. Sorry if that was unclear! The characters live in San Francisco, 100%


      • I found this so interesting! This led me to keep looking at these so called “easter egg.” I saw a picture of Luigi from Cars driving by the window outside the dentist in Finding Nemo. I am wondering how that is possible according to this theory, which by the way im completly obsessed about.

    • the Pixar theory is impossible because In Toy Story 2, Mrs. Potato Head can be seen reading from a storybook of A Bug’s Life. it says in the Pixar theory that bugs life happened after wall E BUT TOY STORY IS HUNDREDS of years before wall e


  4. Hi Jon! Nice bio. and a wonderful site. First of all, thank you for visiting my site the other day. I really appreciate the support. Secondly, I have a friend, a 22-year-old young lady who is an artist and has a website on which she displays some of it.

    If I’m not imposing, would you like the address to the site so you can look the work over? I know she has a desire to work for Pixar…

    Just let me know what you think. Sincerely, there is no pressure to do anything here!

    Thanks again,
    Steve Pejay


  5. I agree poor Andy would love to have a Dad. Mom needs some companionship too – with some fresh Ray-O-Vac batteries Buss Lightyear could take her to infinity and Beyond…


  6. Hi! I enjoyed your theory on Pixar it is a very unique and entertaining story. I’m only 14 so some of this stuff is hard for me to get my head around. Although, I do agree with your theory, the one thing I don’t get is why boo got older as she went back in time.



  7. I would just like to offer up a theory of my own…I think Pixar is building up to one last movie called Boo’s Travels. This movie will document Boo’s travels through time and it will also explain how each Easter egg got to each movie and why. Just my thoughts….


  8. Jon i have new evidence to show im not sure if you noticed but at the end of cars they show 3 cars typed movies named “Toy Car Story” i mean how would they even know that and that’s not even it they also show “Monster Trucks Inc.” and a “A Bug’s Life” (i have no idea why they named it that ) so i understand if somehow they have like an idenic memory for toy story thing but since a bug’s life and monster inc. are way in the future this makes no sense. take it to thought thanks(:


  9. Jon, I have been following Moviepilot Animation on Facebook for a few months now, and have constantly seen them post your articles about movies in general and specifically Pixar :) I only today have discovered your site and I have to tell you that I have been browsing and reading it for the past 2 hours! I am fascinated with The Pixar Theory and some of the other posts such as about Andy’s mom and dad, and as you have said, they are actually blowing my mind! I consider myself quite the movie buff and thoroughly enjoy all your posts about movies. I have saved your book The Pixar Detective to begin reading shortly :) I wanted to let you know how much of an impact you are making and applaud you on your dedication to the subjects. Thank you very much for adding the the wonderful world of movies that I love!
    Nikita K.


    • Haha, wow it’s not usual for people to find my work on Moviepilot first! Thanks for taking the time to read my crazy ideas. I hope I keep putting out more cool ideas for you guys :)


  10. Pretty cool site
    I actually stumbled upon it by accident, I was looking for a site to review a book and stayed much longer than I expected. While I’m here could you possibly review my poetry book “There is one here for you”
    It is available free today 20th of November and 21st November in Kindle books?
    I’d really appreciate any honest feedback/criticism.
    Thank you kindly,,,, and if you can’t review it that’s ok too.
    Take care

    Sorry about the plug
