Check out this cool website I found a few days ago!

I think this is so crazy and wild, but what's really weird is that it makes sense! I can't imagine how long it took the person to figure it out. I don't think Pixar was doing this on purpose, but who knows? Anyway, what do you think about this incredibly cool theory?

I have seen this on Pintrest many times. I don't really like this theory. I can understand a few of them co-existing (like Toy Story, Boo's home, A Bug's Life, Finding Nemo, Ratatouille, Up, WALL-E and Brave can all be in the same universe at different times and places). But Cars, Incredibles and the Monsters movies can't be on the same earth as Andy. I think that either each series is in a different parallel universe, or there are several. If they co-exist, then how come there are no evidence of humans in Cars, or historical events in Monsters Inc and University?

I've never liked the theory myself. I think it was way overrated, but that just me [smile]. I don't know how/why it became so well known. I know the person was trying to be clever and kudos for all the thought and time put into it but it didn't do anything for me. It was just WAY to much of a stretch and it made me wonder does this person actually believe what he's writing or is it just to be funny? To me, they are all just Pixar's individual movies, very separate and distinct with hidden Easter Eggs from other films just as kind of a trademark and to be fun, not ever trying to connect all of them together.

I don't actually believe it either, but I just thought it was really cool[smile]. Especially the theory of the Toys picking up some of the witches magic is really stretching it.

I would love to see someone try and fit The Good Dinosaur in all of this.

I don't really get the theory. I just don't see why they need to twist into pretzels to try and fit all the universes into one another when they already can pretty much just be slotted into each other with no problems. Brave's in the past, WALL-E's in the future, Monsters, Inc. is in another dimension, all the others are isolated from the others (actually even those are isolated from the others, excluding WALL-E). There's not really any contradictions you need to explain away. 

Cars doesn't fit, that's the only one that you need nutso theories to figure out.

Personally, I've really disliked the theory since I saw it features on one of those "Things You Didn't Know About Pixar Movies" (that I always know [Winking_zps1d9118ce]), where it was listed as a fact. I know it's not fair to hold that against the theory itself, but I just really hate when people try to pass off things that aren't facts as facts. 

And Mary Gibbs (Boo, but I'm sure we all knew that) did one of those "Ask me anything" things on Reddit, and she had the following to say about the theory;

that theory is ********. sorry

Interesting... I had thought that one was one of the easiest to fit in! What goes on in Inside Out has no effect on the rest of the hypothetical Pixar Universe, except tells us that our Emotions are actual people.

You are right, Bonnie. I always thought the same, that most of them you can just say go together and it makes sense. Not that I believe this theory. [rolleyes]

Also, all those "Bet You Didn't Know" videos never get me either, ha! Mostly its just "A113 shows up in every Pixar film!"

Interestingly, I've met Jon Negroni (the author of the Pixar Theory) and he doesn't really believe that the universes all fit together, he just wanted to have some fun trying to connect the dots in a fan-fiction type story that got way more attention than he could have even imagined. It will be interesting to see if he decides to continue this - I should have asked him since I just ran into him a little over a month ago. He may have answered this elsewhere, but I don't recall.

Wow, that IS interesting. Thanks for sharing! 

Ok, I know how The Good Dinosaur fits into all this-- all the dinosaurs actually are monsters, they just don't live anywhere near Monstropolis. And from what we know, Spot is the only human in the film. So, Spot snuck into the Monster World as an infant and has been living there ever since!

Or, The dinosaurs live in the era right before humans leave Earth, and they are hunted to extinction by the humans. Yeah, makes sense... Ha!

cool article about how Inside Out fits into the universe with the theory's creator:http://moviepilot.com/posts/2015/06/11/how-inside-out-expertly-fits-into-the-pixar-theory-like-it-s-not-even-trying-3298604?lt_source=external,manual

Here are my two cents on the Pixar Theory:

I love it, but I doubt that Pixar filmmakers intentionally made all the films fit together that way. That hugely restricts their ability to be creative and creat a unique world for each film. That being said, I think that The Pixar Theory, or as I like to call it, The Pixar Continuum, I find it a fascinating fan fiction story that gives unique context on all of Pixars movies which allows you to watch them from a different perspective. I'm fascinated to see how Jon Negroni and other dedicated Pixar fans have been able to not only create this extraordinarily detailed theory, but also figure out how to fit in both films released since it's creation (Inside Out and Good Dino). So no, the filmmakers didn't intentionally make each film in one timeline, but it's really fun to be imaginative, ask "What if?" and explore the idea.

There was a funny note about the Pixar Theory in a recent ScreenCrush interview with Toy Story 4 producer, Mark Nielsen. Here's what he had to say about the theory and debunking it...and having fun with it.

Interviewer: I listened to the commentary track that you and Josh Cooley did on the Blu-ray, and you were talking about the antiques shop where much of the second half of the film is set. I’m paraphrasing here, but you were joking about how the goal of that location, because of all the Pixar Easter eggs in it, was to destroy the Pixar Theory.

Mark Nielsen: [laughs]

Interviewer: And then I think in the next scene, Josh jokes that Bonnie’s mom is reading a book called Debunking the Crazy Theory of a Shared Universe.

Mark Nielsen: Yes! Yes.

Interviewer: Now you guys are clearly having some fun there, but I was wondering whether the Pixar Theory did come up during the development of the movie, and what you think about the idea that all Pixar movies exist within a shared universe.

Mark Nielsen: You know, it’s funny. We’ve never taken those ideas very seriously, and we know where a lot of it stems from. We were kind of hoping to debunk it a little bit, we did talk about it a little bit, but that wasn’t a real strong intention going into it. The truth is, what leads to a lot of these theories is the fact that we’ve reused characters and sets from previous movies for efficiency’s sake.

Interviewer: Right.

Mark Nielsen: If you’ve got stuff that already exists, you’re going to just use it instead of building something new, because it’s going to save you time and money. That’s led to us putting a lot of things in films that are from previous films. Without knowing that, if you’re going to look at it, you could read intentionality there that’s not really there. That’s really what’s happened over time.

There’s a girl in Toy Story 4 that looks exactly like Boo because we probably we took that character from our “backlot” and used a character that was based on the Boo model. So we had to ask ourselves “Do we change her out so that she doesn’t look like Boo? Or do we embrace it because it’s kind of fun and people are actually going to think that it might be Boo, and then it’s going to spin out some more theories?” So we do get a kick out of it, and we are entertained by those theories. Sometimes it is fun for us to mess with those theories, even with the things that we are folding into the background.
