13 ‘Pixar’ Movie Easter Eggs You Might Have Missed


There's no denying it, pretty much everyone out there loves 'Pixar' movies. From 'Toy Story' to 'Monsters, Inc.' to 'Brave', there's something for everyone to enjoy. What makes them such great movies is that they can be enjoyed over multiple viewings due to all the detail that is put into every scene. In fact, animators at Pixar love to put little extras, or 'Easter Eggs', into their movies, which can easily be missed, even if you've watched the film several times. Sometimes these are sneak-peaks of the next movie they're working on, or throwbacks to old movies, or even recurring themes that are featured in all or most Pixar productions. We've got thirteen of those Easter Eggs right here, which you may well have missed! Take a look!
