Hey, I've seen that before! Pixar reveals a bunch of movie Easter eggs

Characters or items from one movie will show up in another. And the cycle continues.

There's been an internet pop culture theory out there for awhile that all of the Pixar films exist within the same universe. It's sort of a stretch at times, but it's a fun read.

And while Pixar this week didn't quite go that far, they did release a video hinting the movies are connected – or, at the very least, the Pixar employees had fun sneaking little nods to other movies into whatever they were working on.

The video was uploaded by the Toy Story Facebook page Sunday. You can also watch it here:

Pixar Easter Eggs

Oh my spurs! You ain't never seen Easter eggs like these, partner. ????

Posted by Toy Story on Sunday, January 15, 2017

Some of these are extremely subtle – like the shadow of a dog in Ratatouille is the chatty dog Dug from Up. (Or maybe just his shape was used again – it's unclear what the exact extent of the connection is.) Some are a little easier to spot, like Nemo or Jessie dolls showing up in Monsters Inc.

Anyway, it's great fun seeing some of these characters pop up in other movies. And the video isn't even 3 minutes long, so give it a watch.
