The Incredibles 2 is on the way, and so is Toy Story 4 - too big old Pixar sequels speeding at us at a rate of knots, how exciting. First up is The Incredibles 2, the second installment in the superhero franchise, set to hit cinemas in July, and we’ve got top secret intel that points to a sneaky little Toy Story 4 Easter egg in the flick, amongst the usual deluge of hidden references.
Nathan Fariss, the sets supervisor, talked to BuzzFeed about what to expect, and started with the famous Pizza Planet truck from Toy Story, which has popped up in WALL-E, Cars, Finding Dory and Brave:
“The Pizza Planet truck is in there, but it’s in period, we did make it an appropriately-themed truck.
“I like if possible to hide that Pizza Planet truck pretty good.”
Another tidbit that sneaks into a lot of Pixar films is the ‘A113’ reference (taken from the classroom number used by character animation students at the California Institute of the Arts) - it’s appeared in all of the films so far. Fariss has confirmed it will also appear.
And finally, there’ll be a nod to Toy Story 4, as Pixar often includes an Easter egg to whichever film is up next on the slate (Doc Hudson from Cars in The Incredibles, Nemo hanging on the wall in Monsters. Inc), and there’s no change here. Fariss says:
“It probably won’t make any sense until Toy Story 4 comes out.
“I didn’t even know anything about it before. You might see it and go, ‘What the heck is that?’ And then move on.”
So good luck spotting that one, basically. The others might be easier to find though, so get those peepers on the lookout, Mr. Telescope!
