I heard about this book as I was watching countess YouTube videos on several Pixar theories. I can honestly say that this book is a lot of fun to read and makes.
I can honestly say that this book is a lot of fun to read and makes some really good points. There were a few times where I felt that some of the inferences were a bit far stretched and didn't quite make sense, but over all this is a fantastic read if you are a Pixar lover.
Mar 18, Pablo V rated it really liked it. When Pixar bean on the door and her angry bush said the get out!!
Aug 09, Mike Mulvey rated it it was ok. I can feel the author's author's enthusiasm in Pixar movies, but the central thesis of the book takes second place to this enthusiasm. The book rambles. This is unfortunate because his thesis is very intriguing: I'd love to see a revamped, tightened-up, second edition of this book because it has a lot of potential. View all 6 comments.

Love the theory. I first looked into this when it became quite popular just after and was immediately hooked.
Negroni's passion for the Pixar universe is spellbinding and really allows you to believe in the whole connected universe. I hope the Pixar producers have read this and are keeping it in mind! Dec 21, Ken rated it it was amazing. Mind Blown! I've even checked to see if the recent releases also fit and they do, a couple of the links are slightly tedious but certainly a fun way to look at all these movies. I really want to watch them all again now!
Feb 07, Graham rated it really liked it. This was a fun and interesting read. I read the theory a few years ago when it went viral but this book goes into more detail and fixes any loopholes originally present.
As a huge fan of pixar movies I was completely engrossed in this book from the very start. A must read for any pixar enthusiast! Jul 06, Noah Hunt rated it it was amazing. I loved this and even though Picard says it's not true it makes perfect sense it was great.

Does that make this review kinda biased? I'd praise it even if I never knew the guy. It's an equally charming and compelling read, an infectiously creative love letter to An extensive, thorough, engaging, deeply researched, very thoughtful, highly inspired and at times surprisingly bleak claim-to-fame fan-theory-to-end-all-fan-theories even though, ironically, it played a major factor into our ongoing Internet obsession with fan theories from my fellow Cinemaholics host Jon Negroni.
It's an equally charming and compelling read, an infectiously creative love letter to the magic of Pixar. If you're truly a fan, I'm certain you're going to love this book. Beautiful illustrations from Kayla Savage throughout as well.
Totally loved it! I had to wait for years to be able to download it and have the enough time to fully read it and understand it. It was hard avoiding all of the updates on the newer movies but now that I'm done I can't wait to catch up with them. Completely worth the wait!
Feeling lucky of having one of the last printed copies of the Totally loved it! Apr 30, Senuri Silva rated it it was amazing. Loved every single mad second of reading this book! How lucky were we to grow up with these stories! Oct 16, Claudia rated it liked it. Crazy but super cool.
Reminded me of the films that made up my chilhood. I really want to watch them now! Mar 13, Emily rated it it was amazing.
Mar 07, Ron rated it really liked it. An enjoyable read if you are interested in The Pixar Theory. An updated edition is needed even though the author has added additional information regarding newer Pixar films at his blog. Feb 21, Morgan rated it really liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. My sister and I read this together. We really enjoyed the Incredibles analysis especially since The Incredibles 2 is going to in theaters soon! This analysis really makes a lot of sense and adds a lot of detail.
I can't wait to see The Incredibles 2!!!
After that, I thought the line of thought broke down a bit. Besides that, it was very interesting. There are no animals or humans in this version of Earth because they're all gone, but we do know that the planet still has many human influences left. In Cars 2, the cars go to Europe and Japan, making it plain that this is all taking place on Earth as we know it.
So what happened to the cars? We've learned by now that humans are the source of energy for the machines. That's why they never got rid of them.
In Wall-E, they point out that BNL intended to bring the humans back once the planet was clean again, but they failed. The machines on Earth eventually died out, though we don't know how. What we do know is that there is an energy crisis in Cars 2, with oil being the only way society trudges on despite its dangers.
We even learn that the Allinol corporation was using "green energy" as a catalyst for a fuel war in order to turn cars away from alternative energy sources. That "clean" fuel could have been used to wipe out many of the cars, very quickly. Have you ever wondered why Wall-E was the only machine left?
We know that the movie begins years after humans have left Earth on Axiom, governed by the AutoPilot another A.
Could it be that Wall-E's fascination with human culture and friendship with a cockroach is what allowed him to keep finding fulfillment and the ability to maintain his personality? That's why he was special and liberated the humans. He remembered the times when humans and machines lived in peace, away from all of the pollution caused by both sides. After Wall-E liberates the humans and they rebuild society back on Earth, what happens then? During the end credits of Wall-E, we see the shoe that contains the last of plant life.
It grows into a mighty tree. A tree that strikingly resembles the central tree in A Bug's Life.
That's right. The reason no humans exist in A Bug's Life is because there aren't a lot left. We know because of the cockroach that some of the insects survived, meaning they would have rebounded a bit faster, though the movie had to be far enough in the timeline for birds to have returned as well. But there's more. There's something strikingly different about A Bug's Life when compared to other Pixar portrayals of animals.
Unlike Ratatouille, Up, and Finding Nemo, the bugs have many human activities similar to what the rats in Ratatouille were just experimenting with. The bugs have cities, bars, know what a bloody mary is, and even have a travelling circus. This all assumes that the movie is in a different time period. The other factor that sets A Bug's Life apart from other Pixar movies is the fact that it is the only one, besides Cars and Cars 2, that doesn't revolve or even include humans.
The reason I am so inclined to push the idea is because of how different the bug world is from the "animal" movies. No other Pixar movie has animals wearing clothing, wild inventions, animals creating machines, or so much human influence like bars and cities.
In Finding Nemo, the most human thing we see is a school, and even that is pretty stripped down. But in A Bug's Life, we have a world where humans are barely even implied. At one point, one of the ants tells Flik not to leave the island because there are "snakes, birds, and bigger bugs out there. Yes, there are some humans, like the kid who allegedly picked the wings off of the homeless bug, but that still fits in a post Wall-E world.
Also, the bugs have to be irradiated for them to live such long lifespans. The average lifespan of an ant is just three months, but these ants all survive an entire summer and allude to being around for quite some time.
One of the ants even says he "feels 90 again. Humanity, machines, and animals grow in harmony to the point where a new super species is born. The monsters civilization is actually Earth in the incredibly distant future.
Where did they come from? It's possible that the monsters are simply the personified animals mutated after the diseased earth was radiated for years. I would guess that it took hundreds of years after Wall-E for the animals to become monsters] The alternative could be that humans and animals had to interbreed to save themselves. Gross, I know, but plausible since the lines between animals and humans are constantly up for debate in Pixar.
Whatever the reason, these monsters seem to all look like horribly mutated animals, only larger and civilized. They have cities and even colleges, as we see in Monsters University.
I haven't settled on a theory I really like yet, but I'm leaning towards the idea that monsters and machines eventually forgot that they need humans and got rid of them again, not realizing their mistake until all humans died out, leading to the necessity for time travel.
Another explanation is that humans just couldn't survive on Earth anymore.
Humans are the source of energy, but thanks to the machines, again, the Monsters find a way to use doors to travel to the human world.
Only, it's not different dimensions. The monsters are going back in time. They're harvesting energy to keep from becoming extinct by going back to when humans were most prominent. The peak of civilization, if you will. Monsters must have relied on anti-human instincts to believe that just touching a human would corrupt their world like it did in the past. So they scare humans to gather their energy until they realize that laughter green energy is more efficient because it is positive in nature.
So, they falsely trained monsters to believe that humans are toxic and from another dimension, making it suicide for a monster to interact too much with their world. As you can see, the trailer looks exactly the same, except the one in A Bug's Life is noticeably older and more decrepit, while the one in Monsters Inc. Look at the picture above. The one on the left looks older and more rundown.
Even the vegetation is noticeably dryer and there's less of it. The trailer on the right has humans and the frame even includes tall grass and a tree hanging overhead. I disagree based on how barely intact other buildings were in Wall-E. They also bring up the bug zapper that is powered by electricity. The zapper could easily be solar powered, just like Wall-E.
The bugs probably used it as a light source to signal other bugs to "Bug City. By the end, humans, animals, and machines have finally found a way to understand each other and live harmoniously.
And then there's Boo. What do you think happened to her?
She saw everything take place in future earth where "kitty" was able to talk. She became obsessed with finding out what happened to her friend Sully and why animals in her time weren't quite as smart as the ones she'd seen in the future.
She remembers that "doors" are the key to how she found Sully in the first place and becomes Yes, Boo is the witch from Brave. She figures out how to travel in time to find Sully, and goes back to the source: The will-of-the-wisps. They are what started everything, and as a witch, she cultivates this magic in an attempt to find Sully by creating doors going backwards and forwards in time.
She probably went back in time to the Dark Ages to get more magic from the will-o-wisps. In Brave, you can briefly see a drawing in the workshop. It's Sully. We even see the Pizza Planet truck carved as a wooden toy in her shop, which makes no sense unless she's seen one before If you look closely, you can see the carved truck below.
You remember Merida opening doors and the witch constantly disappearing? It's because those doors are made the same way from Monsters Inc. They transport across time and that is why Merida couldn't find the witch. I barely scratch the surface, but a great theory offered by some that I support is that these easter eggs are planted by Boo either intentionally or accidentally as she travels through time to find Sully.
Some support for that is the fact that every easter egg in Brave lies in her workshop. I like to think so. He surely reunited with her at least once as a child at the end of Monsters Inc. But her love for Sully is, after all, the crux of the entire Pixar universe.
The love of different people of different ages and even different species finding ways to live on Earth without destroying it because of a lust for energy. And that is the Pixar Theory. More will be added to it, undoubtedly, when Pixar's next movie The Good Dinosaur comes out in They have humans as pets in this alternate reality. My theory is that this "alternate universe" explains why so many things in Pixar's universe are different from ours.
It's because evolution was never interrupted by a world-wide catastrophe. Humans evolved into supers and animals gained sentience faster, accelerating the apocalypse for resources that could do the same to our timeline.
Oh, and Dinoco from Toy Story is a loose, but fun connection to speculate on. Thanks for reading!
