The Pixar Theory Timeline

Pixar Theory TimelineSince the initial release of The Pixar Theory, there have been countless changes and updates to the timeline. Since it can get a little complicated (and nutty), I put together a new and improved outline that follows the book and includes all of the recent and upcoming Pixar movies. Enjoy!

Keep in mind that this is not the full theory. There’s plenty I don’t go over here and there are many missing connections between movies I don’t bring up, so if you want the full Pixar Theory experience with connections, Easter eggs, and explanations for what’s going on, click here to check out the book.

And that’s the Pixar Theory. In a nutshell. A very very very long nutshell. Hope you enjoyed reading it as much I did laying it out, and if you have any questions, confusions, or frustrations, feel free to hit me up in the comments or dig into the full book, which does a lot more to explain what in the world is going on in this timeline.

Thanks for reading this. Seriously. You can subscribe to my posts by clicking “Follow” in the right sidebar.

  1. So, does that mean you and MatPat will begin a Pixar Theory battle to see whose Pixar Theory is better? This will be so exciting! I hope MatPat is reading this right now and starting to create his own Pixar Theory! This will be fun!


      1. That theory doesn’t actually make sense. The movie explains on its own that the Axiom has the technology to convert solar power into artificial energy, enough to sustain the lives of the entire crew in an infinite loop with “artificially flavored food.” Suggesting they’re cannibals is just silly reaching without any evidence to back it up.


  2. Nice timeline, I love the layout. I have one nitpick though. Toy Story 3 can’t take place in 2007. On Andy’s bulletin board, there are concert tickets dated 2009. This would mean that, if the movie takes place 11 years after Toy Story 2, Toy Story 2 would take place at its release year and Toy Story would be in 1998. Up would take place somewhere in the 2010’s.

    1. I consider it headcanon because the animators still chose to make her so similar to Boo. She even reenacts a scene from Monsters Inc. and says “Boo.” Not a dealbreaker for me, but I still love the idea that it’s her, there.


  3. yeah you got it wrong mat pat proved that cars are the evolved form of the insects in bugs life
    so please fix the timeline


    1. Zootopia is not Pixar. Zootopia was made by Disney. Planes is only technically included due to it being the EXACT SAME setting and tone as Cars.
