Have you ever heard of the Pixar Theory? If not, you’re in for a real treat. First, though, a question: Have you ever noticed how all the Pixar movies seem oddly connected? If you have, you’re not alone, and that is primarily what The Pixar Theory is about. From Toy Story all the way to CoCo, the Pixar Theory is a complex, intricately thought out, and intriguingly pieced together thought process, tying all of Pixar’s little easter eggs together to make sense of a shared Pixar cinematic universe. Ready to hear about the Pixar theory? Here are 25 Reasons The Pixar Theory Might Be True!
The Magic in "Brave"
This movie may explain why many of the creatures are able to act like humans, talk, and behave the way they do. Other than The Good Dinosaur, it’s the earliest setting in the Pixar timeline and features Meridia learning about the magic that can turn her mother into a bear and move inanimate objects.
Much later, in the 1960’s, the “Supers” in the Incredibles movie discovered this magic as human “energy.” However, through Buddy’s inventions of both AI bots and zero-point energy, other things in the Pixar universe began to transpire.
Buy N' Large
Also in The Incredibles, the massive corporation Buy N’ Large is introduced. It plays a prominent role in the Pixar movie universe, especially regarding Buddy’s AI inventions, but more about that later.
The toys in Toy Story clearly have come alive thanks to the magic in Brave. They develop a code of rules and even find that human love is an energy source. Without it, they will lose their purpose and become inanimate collector toys. Oh, and who makes all these toys? Buy N’ Large.
Emotions As a Source of Energy
Along with love being a source of energy, the monsters in Monsters, Inc. create machines that can harness and tap into human emotions for energy. Fear and joy are, of course, two prime sources. This becomes more evident in the movie Inside/Out with Riley’s emotions losing their power when she forgets her past. The Monsters, of course, become a big part of the universe later down the line.
