'The World's End': Cornetto Trilogy Tie-Ins, References, & Cameos

What defines a trilogy? A continuous narrative told over the span of three films, or recurring details and motifs? The answer is 'both', of course, but Edgar Wright's celebrated Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy - comprised of Shaun of the DeadHot Fuzz, and capstone entry The World's End - happens to fall into the latter category.

Each film is self-contained, and respectively they tell stories of zombie apocalypses, small-town conspiracies, and homogenizing alien invasions. Yet they still make up their own varied trilogy courtesy of countless elements, themes, and ideas shared and explored across all three pictures - and Screen Rant has diligently catalogued the best of them.

From repeat-use of the same cast members from picture to picture, to the ever-present delicious frozen treat from which the series derives its name, here's our list - in no particular order - of the references, cameos, Easter eggs, and tie-ins of the Cornetto Trilogy. Note: this post contains minor SPOILERS for The World's End.
