The Pixar Detective, Chapter 8: The Hexagon

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!

pixar detective chapter 8



Stevin, Alec and Wallaby continue their perilous search for Mary, who has presumably gotten lost in time. Along the way, our gang finds themselves in 1935, tracking down the past version of the only person who left a trace in Mary’s room, where she was last seen.

Mr. Sumner.

Only, it’s not a person. Our heroes have found someone who claims to be a monster from another world. His name is Mr. Sumner, and he claims that in a mysterious government facility, he was forced to engage in experiments meant to transcend time. To find out what happened to Mary, the gang must take Mr. Sumner to this facility and find a way to communicate with his future self.

Meanwhile, a villainous mastermind who simply goes by “The Maestro” is concocting a plan to create an army of “supers.” His prime research subject is a young girl named Sadie, who has a mysterious power known as Dominion. The Maestro has placed three new agents on an unknown mission surrounding this experiment: Willem, Flo, and Peaches. And, of course, their mission takes place within the same government facility our heroes are about to invade: the Hexagon.

Extra Credit!

Why is this government facility called “The Hexagon?” You may have guessed that it has a lot in common with “The Pentagon,” which is the real-life headquarters of the U.S. Department of Defense. Of course, the Pentagon itself wasn’t built until the 1940s, as opposed to the fictional Hexagon that takes place within a city called Metroville (sound familiar?) in 1935.

  1. Jon, you and Kayla are amazing at what you do! You are doing amazing art and what I am reading is awesome! For part 1, I am thinking “The Detective, The Assistant, and The Magician”

    • Thanks Anthony. Sadly, Kayla suffers from being overwhelmingly humble and refuses to think you guys love her. I will, however, make sure she reads this comment!

  2. YAAS CHAPTER 8! YOU GUYS ARE AWSUMMM ^_^ Kayla’s an incredible artist and both of you are really good authors. This thing is like my new ff. 😛 Can’t wait for July 29 😀

    • She really is the best. I mean three sketches for one chapter? I’m still impressed.

  3. PLOT HOLE:Morbiose is not a real word, I checked the dictionary and it was not in there.

    • Haha don’t worry Anthony, that was intentional. The point was to paint the Maestro as a character who is obsessed with “his” version of reality.

      • OHHHH! I get it now, thank you for explaining that. Love those cliffhangers and story arcs.

      • This guy looks like Robert Parr’s boss, Mr. Huph.

  4. Why is the tat on her left arm when you say it’s on her right? Js.

    • It’s right from Willem’s perspective, but left from hers. In other words, I have some editing to do…

      • LOL ok haha I get what u mean

  5. Um…. Isn’t 1935 during the Great Depression?

    • Oh yeah, I almost forgot, how did Hexagon have the money to do all this during the Great Depression, let alone have the futuristic technology to do it?

  6. Poor Sadie, she seems to be having a bad time at the hexagon….. How sad. Dude, sometimes you can be depressing.

    • You gotta admit though…Not as depressing as half the stuff Disney does to its characters. Remember Lion King?

      • You are right Jon, the stuff with Sadie is ineffective compared to what happened to Mufasa or Bambii’s Mother.

      • Yeah you have a point, thanks for not only pointing that out, but responding to my comment!

  7. Hi, Jon! Great chapter, but I have a question that didn’t seem to fit in any other relevant post: When will you be addressing Planes F&R? It probably sucks but I can’t wait to see what add-ons to the the theory you come up with.

  8. Today is July 29th, should there be a new Pixar Detective Today?
