Are you ready to have your mind blown? Like, in the same way it was blown by the theory that all the Pixar movies happen in the same universe? Well, hold onto your hat – seriously, hats are important here. Jon Negroni pointed out the style of Andy’s hat in Toy Story. It’s red with white trim and looks just like Jessie’s (with the exception of the lace band which could have faded or been lost over time). He starts with that and heads down a trail that makes a good case for Andy’s mom being Emily – Jessie’s previous owner.
More after the break…
Huh. Negroni uses a lot of image evidence from the movies to back up his theory along with this point:
We don’t know the first name of Andy’s mom. We don’t know Emily’s last name. We know that Andy’s hat and Emily’s hat are the same. We know that Emily is old enough to be Andy’s mom. We definitely know that Pixar is perfectly capable of sneaking this in without being overt about it.
