I’m going to start by saying that Fan Theories are brilliant. Some are true, and some aren’t but we wished they were true.
These are certain ones I think are quite brilliant.
NOTE: I came up with none of these.
This theory takes the easter eggs in all of Pixar’s films and combines and connects all the films together as all taking place in the same world, showing the conflicts between humans, animals and machines.
NOTE: This was written before “Inside Out”, but “Inside Out” still fits.
How the The Pixar Theory Works on the Human Side:
- In “Brave” (which according to the theory is the first movie chronologically, set in 14/15 Century) we meet the Will-O-Wisps and an old witch who uses doors to travel.
- In “The Incredibles” (1950s/1960s), the humans have super powers but the Artificial Intelligence (Omnidroids) as Mirage says it “Too smart to take orders”, starting a war between Humans and Machines
- In the “Toy Story” (1997-2010) franchise, we are shown humans using and ridding of toys as they grow older, the love for the toys are fueled by Joy in “Inside Out”. Also, Andy has a monster, named Randell.
- In “Ratatouille” (2007), humans and animals interact directly (Remy & Linguini). Some humans accept, and some protest (Skinner).
- In “Up” (2011-2016), Charles Muntz uses machines to make animals talk. The animals become as smart as the humans.
- In “Cars” and “Cars 2” (2100-2200), the humans are all gone (likely in the ship from WALL-E), and the machines keep up the traditions of humans.
- In “WALL-E” (2800-2900), WALL-E and EVE allow the humans to return to Earth and the viewers realize that the humans have been kept captive by the Auto-Pilot, which runs BnL (Buy n Large, who also made Carl in Up to move), making the humans dependent on machines, taking revenge for “The Incredibles” and “Toy Story”.
- In “Bug’s Life” (2898-3000), the humans are just beginning to return to Earth and just aren’t in the movie.
- In “Monsters Inc.” and “Monsters University” (4500-5000), the humans become monsters. Sulley meets Boo, and they form a very strong friendship. Boo, then goes on a mission to find Sulley again, becoming the witch in “Brave”.
How the Pixar Theory works on the Animal side:
- In “Brave” (14/15 Century), we have Mor’du and Merida’s mother, who became a bear from the witch (Boo)’s magic.
- In “Finding Nemo” (2003), Nemo is kidnapped by a dentist, and using intelligence, all the fish escapes the Dentist’s office, during the credits.
- In “Ratatouille”, Remy takes control of a human.
- In “Up”, (2011-2016), the dogs can talk, thanks to tech
- In “Bug’s Life” (2898-3000), with all the humans and machines gone, the animals rule the world.
How the Pixar Theory works on the Machine side:
- In “The Incredibles”, (1950s-1960s) a machine revolts against its master and succeeds.
- In the “Toy Story” (1997-2010) franchise, the toys who move on their own when their owners are not there, and have feelings. I mean look at Jesse and Lotso Bear!
- In “Cars” and “Cars 2” (2100-2200), the cars are the only beings there because the humans in “WALL-E” are already in the ship.
- In “WALL-E”, (2800-2900), after holding the humans in a ship run by machines, the autopilot is defeated by WALL-E and EVE and return the humans to Earth.
- In “Monsters University” and “Monsters Inc.” (4500-5000), the monsters (or evolved humans) depend on children’s screams, but then children’s laughter for energy
- Riley was likely born during our transition between the monsters scaring us and making us laugh.
- Bing Bong was likely partically based on a monster (the legs), and as this video says, it’s likely George Sanderson, the monster who was shaved for having a kid’s sock on him. George made Riley laugh, most likely, as Joy took over Fear as the dominant emotion in people. (NOTICE THE LEGS!)
The Pixar Theory is good. I actually believe it to be true, and to which I congratulate Pixar for planting it all, and I thank Jon Negroni for noticing it all!
This was a long three part essay written on Giant on the Playground defending Syndrome.
How it works:
- Let’s start with what Syndrome was doing: Killing supers when the government didn’t want supers in the world.
- The government never told any super about what was going on. The government probably funded Syndrome. At the end of the film, the government CLAIMED they would arrest Syndrome. They likely respected Syndrome and would have let him go, but that’s another theory I’m trying to piece together.
- Syndrome took out the most threatening or wild card supers: Psycwave (Mind Control. Massive threat), Everseer (mind reader and future seer), Macroburst (Wind control), Phylange (Sound control), Blazestone (Fire), Downburst (Gravity control), Hypershock (Earthquakes), Apoglee (Gravity control), Stormicide (Wind bursts), Gazerbeam (Laser eyes), Gamma Jack (Radiation). Most are either emotionally unstable, threats to society or are in situations that could unset said supers.
- He took a massive risk by telling Mr. Incredible to kill Mirage, but he knew his weakness. Mr. Incredible wouldn’t kill if he could help it.
- He did not know there were kids on the plane, he did not know if Elastigirl was being honest.
- Sending out the Omnidroid into the city was Syndrome trying to prove that people with supertech was better than superhumans
- He kidnapped Jack-Jack because, let’s face it. The Parr family was quite dysfunctional.
I think had Syndrome never used the operation, I think the Bob and Helen split. On the other hand, if you combine Tony Stark and Hitler, you have Syndrome. But no matter what, Syndrome FAILED, and massively failed.
The theory shows Marlin going through the five stages of grief.
How the theory works:
- The cold open is Marlin losing his family
- The first stage of grief is denial. Marlin saves Nemo (which by the way, is latin for no one)
- The second stage is anger. Marlin in bitterness doesn’t give Nemo any freedom, who in bitterness goes and touches the “butt” (or boat) and is kidnapped.
- The third stage is bargaining. The turtles, Dory & the sharks try to teach Marlin that it doesn’t matters anymore (Turtles & Dory) and not everything is as it seems (the sharks).
- The fourth stage is despair. Nigel takes Marlin to Nemo, only to see him almost die.
- The final stage is acceptance. He realizes that he needs to let Nemo go to school.
Basically, “Finding Nemo” is based on the “Frozen” song, “Let It Go”.
Or… “Finding Nemo” and “Frozen” are the same movie.
Good, Bad or Ugly?
It’s good. It’s very interesting.
The 12th Doctor is currently played by a character from a 10th Doctor episode.
The first Doctor met the 2nd, 3rd and 5th Doctors…. the 5th Doctor met the 6th… who met the 10th Doctor… who met the 11th Doctor.
At the end of season 3 of Doctor Who, Captain Jack mentioned that he becomes the Face of Boe, leaving us pondering how he came to that, and we met the Headless Monks.
- Dorium was in leagues with the Headless Monks and he sold River Song a time manipulator, which he plucked off the wrist of a handsome time agent (possibly Captain Jack)
- Captain Jack WAS as time agent and he had a time manipulator in the end of season 3
The theory suggests either Mulan or Mushu is the Great Stone Dragon.
“During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.”

Mulan didn’t want her father to go to war, figuring he would die, so she prays in front of the Great Stone Dragon, and the spirit passed on to her and she goes to war.
Theory #1: He made the whole story up
Theory #2: The Merchant is the Genie
Riggan planned his death and foreshadowed it, failed the first time, and succeeded the second try.
- The end of Riggan’s play has the main character shooting himself (maybe Riggan was suicidal from before the beginning)
- Jake, the agent represents reality. He sees things as they normally should be. He sees Riggan ripping up his room, throwing around things.
- The drummer shows foreshadowing. Whenever there is drumming, something important happens within a few minutes
- Blue represents dreaming. When Riggan’s girlfriend tells Riggan he’s pregnant, it’s blue, and she was never pregnant.
The darker the colour, the more confident the character is. Fletcher wears black all movie long. Neiman wears darker clothes as the film progresses.
