The Pixar Theory

By Jon Negroni

Every Pixar movie is connected. I explain how, and possibly why. Several months ago, I watched a fun-filled video on Cracked.com that introduced the idea (at least to me) that all of the Pixar movies actually exist within the same universe. Since then, I’ve obsessed over this concept, working to complete what I call “The Pixar Theory,” a working narrative that ties all of the Pixar movies into one cohesive timeline with a main theme. This theory covers every Pixar production since Toy Story.

  1. That Terminater poster is wrong. In the Dvd commentary, Cameron said he wanted Lance Henrickson to play the Terminated, he even has some concept art showing this. He wanted the Terminated to look like everyone else, to not stand out, but the studio wanted it to be someone more imposing.

  2. Face off with stallone & schwarzy would have been awesome !
    Kevin costner in air force would also have worked
    Star wars with kurt russell woul have been interesting, more serious

  3. I’d love to see Hook with Bowie and Kevin Kline, for real.

  4. Read that Pixar Theory thing just the other day, although it seems a bit forced I think it’s pretty cool

  5. I don’t get the Doc Brown poster. Anyone care to explain?

    • He wasnt able to fix what he was supoose to fix in the past so therefore there was a rippled effect that happened that allowed such crap to be released…

      • Oh so it’s not a direct reference from the movies, more implied.
        I can understand the first two, but after that it’s not so bad – but to each their own.

  6. I’d love to see Hook with Bowie and Kevin Kline, for real.

  7. Nice car

  8. Read that Pixar Theory thing just the other day, although it seems a bit forced I think it’s pretty cool
