Toy Story 3 9 Toy Story 3 Easter Eggs Revealed

Instead of waiting for IMDb users to smoke out the Easter eggs, Disney Pixar has revealed some interesting hidden facts from the upcoming Toy Story 3.

The studio has released a plethora of featurettes and character-specific videos, but now we’ve got something to truly engage the audience. Instead of taking away from its focus, these little “Easter egg” finds should help promote the anticipation.

Fans of the franchise will recognize most of the list, and if you watch the first two films before going to the theater it should enhance your viewing experience even more.

Be sure to commit these to your memory, so when Toy Story 3 hits theaters next weekend you’ll be ahead of everybody else.



•    There are more than 300 stickers in Andy’s room.
•    The pins on the map in Andy’s room correspond to the hometowns of ‘Toy Story 3′ production staff.
•    A few pieces of art hanging on the walls in Andy’s room were actually created by ‘Toy Story 3′ art coordinator Erin Magill when she was in high school.
•    Andy has a banner hanging on one of the walls in his room that reads “P.U.” P.U. stands for Pixar University, a professional-development program for Pixar employees.
•    Above Andy’s closet is a street sign for W. Cutting Blvd., the street on which Pixar’s original headquarters were based.
•    Hidden in Andy’s bedroom is a hint at a new character in next year’s ‘Cars 2.’
•    The number A113, which refers to John Lasseter, Brad Bird, Pete Docter and Andrew Stanton’s former classroom at CalArts, makes an appearance in every Pixar film. Despite the years that have passed, Andy’s mom hasn’t changed her license plate, which still reads A113. In ‘Toy Story 3,’ however, Andy’s mom has a new license plate frame that reads “Tiger Pride,” which is a reference to director Lee Unkrich’s hometown of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and his high school mascot, the Tiger.
•    The Pizza Planet Truck, which first made an appearance in the original ‘Toy Story,’ has made a cameo in nearly every Pixar film. It also appears in ‘Toy Story 3,’ providing a bumpy ride to some traveling toys.
•    Sid, the mean kid who liked to destroy his toys in ‘Toy Story,’ is all grown up as well, and he makes a cameo in ‘Toy Story 3,’ wearing his signature skull t-shirt. Sid’s cameo is voiced by 27-year-old Erik Von Detten, who at the age of 13 was the original voice of Sid in ‘Toy Story.’

There are also a few interesting tidbits from the production of Toy Story 3. For instance, when you hear the Jack-in-the-Box yell, “New toys!” that is actually director Lee Unkrich’s voice work.

Also, in what could very well be a record, Toy Story 3 has 302 characters. Somebody should research that incredible number and see if it holds up in the Guinness Book of World Records.

An unrelated fact I found to be cool was a crossover cameo for the Lots-o’-Huggin’-Bear. He can be seen in Up, sitting on the little girl’s bedroom floor as Carl and his floating house fly past her window.

What do you think of all the Easter Eggs and Fun Facts? Do they enhance your experience with Toy Story 3 or will you wait for the DVD to look for them all?

Toy Story 3 hits theaters and IMAX in 2D and 3D on June 18, 2010.

  1. I’m definitely gonna see toy story,but now I’m really excited about it. I’m gonna look forward to the pizza planet truck and Sid! There are already reviews and they say it’s better than the first two and that’s saying alot! I’m gonna see it as many times as I can! I’m also gonna get the bluray wen it comes out!!!!!

  2. Pixar usually puts future movie characters in current movies. For instance, Nemo was in Monsters Inc and Mr. Incredible was in Finding Nemo. So it is no surprise that Lotso showed up in another movie.

  3. BTW,I love how pixar shows there characters in other movies and how they show a short cartoon before every movie!!!!

  4. Super excited for this, and super excited to be able to take my daughte to her first movie! Going to go saturday morning so as not to disturb anyone with a 2 year old freaking out about the toys on the screen!

  5. It’s great you’re taking your daughter to the movies for this one Zach,so wen she’s older you can tell her this was the first movie she seen at the big screen! It’s gonna be great everyone,trust me!!!!

  6. I can’t wait to see Toy Story 3 and just hearing Cars 2 gives me good chill bumps. We are definitely going to see this in the theater. I will look for the easter eggs but I am not going to search to where I miss out on the story line. I am fine waiting till the Blu ray to come out to really focus in on finding them. I am not a very observative person, so seeing these things doesn’t come naturally for me.

  7. Isn”t 15 new characters? What about the clown toy that initially tells Woody about the story of Daisy and how she abandoned him, Latzo, and big baby?

  8. There’s another one when the toys are in the caterpillar room and are looking over at the butterfly room through the window, you can see Boo from Monsters Inc. playing with a Mike Wazowski toy. Pretty sweet :)

  9. omg it so sad but i love it
