The Pixar Detective, Chapter 20: “Our Fate”

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 since then we’ve finished Part 1 and Part 2!

Both are available as iBooks on iTunes, which you can check out here. If you can’t use iBooks, can also download the PDF versions:

Part 1: (PDF version)

Part 2: (PDF version)

Once you’re finished, check back to our Table of Contents, where we’ll be continuing the story through Part 3. 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 20 Pixar Detective


Wallaby and Mr. Sumner, along with their new allies, Lightning, Rey, and Lotso, are trapped within a prison run by BnL thousands of years in the future. In an attempt to escape, they’ve been cornered by none other than old allies Sadie and Logan, the fierce supers who have been mentally hijacked by BnL’s sociopathic leader, Shelby Forthright.

Chapter 19 pixar detective

Meanwhile, Stevin and Cara are still trapped in the 2800s in search of a way to find their friends and save them. And as always, the main thing on Stevin’s mind is whether or not BnL holds the answers to what happened to Mary, who is still missing.


Part 3 of The Pixar Detective will be released on Tuesday, March 10th. You can use the prompt on the sidebar to subscribe for updates, or just follow me and Kayla on Twitter to stay connected – @JonNegroni – @KaylaTheSavage

  1. Wow!

    That was a great chapter. I imagine I’ll have to read it again to fully soak everything in, though. I’m sad that I have to wait until March, but it will be worth it if Part 3 is as good as this chapter! I’m happy with the conclusion (and epilogue). I’m happy that you didn’t leave us with a bad one month long cliffhanger.

    I hate to point this out after such a great chapter and Part 2, but on page 37 there’s a ‘t’ missing from ‘feet’: “Finally, she gave up and rose to her fee.”

    I’m glad that Jessie made it into the story the way she did. I wonder if she’ll remember Lotso, or is this a different Jessie doll than what Andy had?

    Thank you for a great story so far. I’m looking forward to your books too!

    • Jessie’s owner is Emily, so it’s a different Jessie doll.

    • This is the Jessie doll that we see in Boo’s room in Monsters Inc. There’s a different Jessie doll that is owned by Emily in the 1960s who is eventually passed on to Andy in the 90s and then Bonnie in the 2000s. Two separate dolls.

      Thanks for the catch! I’ll make sure it’s addressed in the e-book. I’ll make sure to provide links to the new Pixar Theory book, of course. It’s a much shorter read than Pixar Detective for obvious reasons 🙂

  2. March?!?!?!?!?!

    What will I read until then…

      • I don’t really like other books, to be honest. I like this one because it feels more like a TV show, and the serial format just works for me.

        • I also feel it is like a TV show, and so will my spinoff. What is odd is that other books I read are like movies.

      • when does your spin off come out

        • Whenever I finish some chapters. There is no set date yet, but I will announce it when I am finished with the chapters. It is coming on Wattpad

  3. That was an awesome chapter, although it wan’t the best yet. Why do we have to wait till march?

    • Sorry for the wait. I know it’s not ideal, but Kayla and I just have a lot to do in the next month. We need this time to complete the Pixar Theory book and then catch up on Pixar Detective so we can be several chapters ahead.

      Glad you liked the chapter!

  4. I just read Chapter 20 at a quick rate, so there are stuff I missed. Anyway, my spinoff is developing slowly. I have some similarities and differences between this and my spinoff. Both will share some characters and story lines, but some scenes may need to be altered or ignored ( I don’t know exactly how the universes will be connected) My spinoff will also be based off more movies, not just Pixar, but it’s story arcs will be based on box office “rivalries” (Once the spinoff starts, you may know the exact movies) and will feature BnL as one of the villains along with another one.

    The spinoff will take time to complete, but March is coming quick, so I need to make progress on it.

  5. She kidnaped herself… I did not see that coming. Jon, as always great job, every chapter I read I just keep wanting more. Can’t wait till part three.
    P.s. Congrats on the publication of the Pixar Theory, I’ll definitely be getting myself a copy.

    • It’s funny because that’s been the idea since day one of writing this story, so getting here feels just…surreal.

      Anyway, there’s definitely more bombshells to hit you guys with when Part 3 arrives! I can’t wait either.

    • So will I, I want to read all the juicy stuff involved in the book.

      Who knows, my spinoff would be inspired by some events in that book. I will look for it.

  6. so is al the one from the toy barn because you said his identity would be revealed in the next chapter but that was ch. 17 or 18 and now it is 20.

  7. so where are the 3 traitors now are they still working for Shelby. if not how did Cochran react to his friends helping anti-futurists if he ever even found out

  8. Hi Jon , I am Brazilian and I follow your book. As I have to use google translator , I understand little. I wonder what exactly happened in chapter 6 where Stevin , Wallaby and Alec go to 1935 .
    I did not like the trip happened and how that rider stuck in Scotland.
    Anthony , when you will publish its spinoff ? I can not stand to wait !

    • The spinoff is really trending! XD Sorry, I need to finish some chapters in order to answer that question.
      Chapter 6 was in Part 1

  9. Willem is Pregnant?

  10. What is with the pregnant thing? Men cannot be pregnant, thought that was common knowledge… Just because they have big bellies does not mean they are pregnant… Anyways awesome chapter Jon!

  11. Hi Jon the story is epic I’m so excited for part 3 btw are you gonna bring back the sadie and Logan from the correct timeline or not?
