That certainly does tie up a lot of loose ends, don't it?

There was a link a while ago that all Pixar movies are from the same universe, with Boo being the witch in Brave.

This was almost as trippy. Almost.

That lost it for me with the Bugs / Cars thing factored in. This, on the other hand, really works. And shockingly well.

John Lasseter has already pooh poohed this as extreme fanboy nerdism. So I'm gonna go with the guy who was in charge of the movies rather than Dufus McDorklingler's cockamamie theory.

He's probably just mad that he didn't realize it was a theoretical possibility first.

It actually improves the story and there's nothing to contradict it. Why bother worrying if it's intended?

What gets me is how Pixar knew there would be a 2 and 3 after the original. I mean all directors plan for a sequel in some way (see the end of Rock and Rolla among others) but to put such subtle hints as a faded lace part into the hat? I will admit I am not sur eif this is from teh first or second movie.

Knowing little of Toy Story, I thought Jon Negroni was the mom and read the article thinking that this dude must be one hell of a voice actor.

For some reason, I read that whole thing in Vizzini's voice as if he was arguing with the Man in Black...

There are no subtle hints, it's just fan fiction from someone who has too much time on their hands, cherry picking supposed evidence that fits the silly narrative trying to find subtext where there is none.

I mean, how many times have we had this conversation, Mrs. Nesbitt? Well, who knows?

When you can't remember your lives, you can't change your lives, and that is the terrible and the secret fate of all life. You're trapped by that nightmare you keep waking up into."

That's what really got me. The missing lace part really stands out now. It's definitely the same hat as Jessie's in Toy Story 2. It's amazing that we saw the hat with the missing lace first, then the hat with the lace in the sequel. This means something.

answer:

Lazy animators reuse geometry and textures already in their library. No need to model another hat if you already have a prefectly good one all ready to load up.

Look closely at this photo - possibly taken recently, maybe within the last few months.
He has a little fluffy growth of beard around this jawline - a youngish jawline, not quite defined; almost feminine. Either he has just started to grow a beard as puberty has hit and is too lazy to shave, or he has just taken testosterone injections. Note the absence of a protruding Adam's Apple.

The person in the photo is obviously a transgendered individual who loves cartoons. Note he/she never mentioned Jean Claude Van Damme even once in the article. An obvious sign of girly-man tendencies.
 And that, ladies and gentleman, is the true story of  Jon/ Joanna Negroni.

1) If anyone didn't realize that Andy was wearing "a girl's hat," they weren't paying attention.

2) Everything else about that article belongs in the "who cares?" bin.

It couldn't possibly be that Pixar animators reuse basic shapes to avoid drawing new ones, right?

A huge conspiracy covering 20 years of movies is much more believable.
 
2014-02-25 03:20:09 AM
Pizza Planet is in every Pixar flick, which makes me so hope they get a Star Wars movie. I want to see the Planet truck pull up to Vader's house.

And yes, I think Pixar has long done this stuff on purpose. Most of us have jobs and tax thingees to notice, though, as noted in TFA. They have proven themselves to be a creative lot, and i find it hard to believe none of them ever bothered to think about Andy's parents' backstory.

Just cause you didn't, well you probably aren't smart enough to work for Pixar, are you?
