Does the theory explain why almost everyone is white?

You can't just ask Pixar why they're characters are white.

Sometimes I wonder what it is that drives people to do world-buildling exercises like that. Like it all has to be connected somehow...

It explains why inanimate objects and animals in Pixar's animated features are personified.  Animals and objects in EVERY animated feature are personified.  Put down the bong, dude.  Clean it out.

dude needs to look up "anthropomorphism" in a dictionary.

oh, and there's nothing wrong with it. Using anthropomorphic rats to tell a story is a very good way to get kids to follow a moral story.

He hit some derp moments but overall it was entertaining and I still need to see brave damnit.

I always thought they included something from their next movie and references to past movies just for fun

its called a movie universe!

his next article is on how ALL THE JAMES BOND MOVIES ARE RELATED!!! GASP!!!

or EVERY STAR TREK MOVIE HAS THE FEDERATION!!

Sad thing is, I was kind of with him right up to the "airplanes decided to start killing superheroes in The Incredibles" part.

That was his entire point.  Usually, you don't have dissimilar movies from the same studio all in the same world.  No one expects that all Warner Brothers movies exist in the same movie universe, for instance.

Reminds me so much of those crazy LOST theories before Season 6 ruined the show with its hocus pocus.

I can point to a gaping flaw in his logic, however-  Pixar makes more than feature-length films. How in the world does the film where the three guys go up in space to the moon fit into this continuity? (I'm sure he'll work up an explanation if we ask.)

The carving of Sully and the Pizza Planet truck toy in the witch's hut blew my mind.
 
2013-07-12 09:52:08 AM  
This is terribly, terribly uncreative. It's literally a cataloging of every instance he could find where one animator said, "This scene needs an X", and another said, "We have an X in the other movie we could use." The entire page, from the stock font title, down to the conditions laid out in which he'll follow your Twitter, is the work of a child-man unaware that he has long since drifted into self-parody and death. I am going to have to spend some time reflecting on what I saw before I can find sleep again.

I'm not an easter egg guy, but Wall-E (2008) can be quickly seen in Toy Story (1995).  That's the most mind blowing reference I know of for Pixar or Disney.

Wasnt Brave the second to last Pixar movie? If it was, then Sully was placed there because Monster Inc's prequel, Monster U, was coming up next and Pixar always puts a character from their upcoming movie in the previous one. Could be a nod to that tradition.

One of the coolest Disney Easter eggs I know of can be seen waiting in line on Star Tours in Hollywood Studios (MGM) where a few cases of luggage come through security and you can see Mister Incredible's super suit, Wall-E and other Disney characters.

Those are films made by the inhabitants of the Pixar universe

Why would this be any kind of revelation.  Obviously this would be true, as many of the same employees worked on films throughout the years and frankly it is their universe to write however they choose.

That was a fun little read.
 
2013-07-12 12:09:56 PM  
That was actually fun and interest albeit a bit tenuous in spots where he stretched to make things connect. I would love to see some of the Pixar people's reaction to this. I tend to imagine a lot of what he saw as connections are really just the writers and animators having fun referencing other works they did. I have a feeling they may not have built the overarching arc that the writer here suggests, but if they did... impressive connections he made.

In either case though, he really needs to invest in some good sunglasses and go outside. I imagine the amount of time he's spent in a basement with only monitor and TV glows around him would cause his eyes to explode if he tried to expose them to direct sunlight immediately. There's a huge interconnected world out there and he could probably find a way to be useful in it if was willing to enter it.

Basements? I thought he would of gone to Starbucks. I mean, with a simple laptop and a portable DVD player, he could of written this in public and make it look like hes important some how too.

Both of these. It felt like one of those grand unifying conspiracy theories that is somewhere around 50% mundane semi-coincidences, 40% messy stretches (the edits in blue where he struggles to dream up reasons for huge problems are sometimes painful to read), and 10% mind-blowing good (or at least entertaining) stuff.
