Frozen is an absolute runaway hit, but no movie is perfect. The good folks at Screen Junkies are going to show you just how not perfect the animated movie is with their latest Honest Trailer. They make some very good points, like what the heck was up with those magic troll rock creatures?

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.

Disney and Pixar’s animated films take place all over the world. You’re not the only one to wonder exactly where, either. DeviantArt user Eowyn Smith took the 44 Disney animated features and 13 Pixar animated features and pinned them to their stated or implied locations. The above map lays it all out. I love seeing how it breaks down, and I’m surprised to see how many films are in North America as compared to Europe. Smith breaks down the movies by continent in written form over at DA, and research like this makes my inner Disnerd smile.

We see plenty of themed photos for weddings and engagements, but this series of photos styled after the movie Up is in celebration of a couple’s 61st wedding anniversary. The idea came from their granddaughter, Lauren Wells, who arranged the whole thing to make up for the couple having only one photo of their wedding day after being stood up by their photographer.

Wells, an event planner, coordinated everything from flowers to vintage props and arranged for it to be photographed by Cambria Grace Photography. The result is a wonderfully sweet series of pictures that will warm your heart.

The skills of legions of artists and writers was completely unnecessary because these simple Microsoft Paint drawings with snarky captions perfectly capture these Pixar movies. All Pixar really needed was BuzzFeed writer Matt Bellassai who clearly missed his calling creating profanity-laced animation for the kiddies.

I would fork over serious cash to see a Marvel movie or animated series illustrated in Pixar’s distinctive style. It would be all the fun. Artist Phil Postma has applied his skills to the challenge and you’ll recognize characters across the Pixar universe combined with Marvel characters such as Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Ant-Man, and more.

These fantastic mashups are the work of deviantArtist renegade21 who has taken the characters from Pixar movies and dropped them into your favorite games. He’s clearly put a lot of thought into his choices, like Buzz Lightyear as Commander Shepard and a Red Dead Redemption Woody, which are absolutely perfect.

What if all the Pixar movies took place in the same universe? On the surface, it doesn’t seem to make any sense. They’re all in such different locations and there are talking fish and cars and futuristic robots and living toys and magic. It’s a lot of puzzle pieces to squish together into a tidy theory. However, writer Jon Negroni has done it. He’s built “The Pixar Theory,” and his musings cover every Pixar film since Toy Story.

Whether you end up agreeing with him or not, just the possibilities and points he brings up will blow your mind.

It all begins with Brave. The setting during the Dark Ages represents the earliest time period Pixar has explored, and Merida comes across magic that turns her mother into a talking bear. The key word there is magic. Negroni goes forward through time and looks at the place of each movie within the universe and whether humans are present, etc. He dives deep and builds a somewhat convincing case. There’s enough solid points that you just have to wonder.

Check out the theory on Jon Negroni’s website and let us know whether you think it’s possible all the Pixar films are connected.

Pixar’s Monsters University already has an incredible cast, but I admit to letting out a squee when I read that Nathan Fillion is going to be part of that cast.

Nathan will be playing Roar Omega Roar’s MU fraternity president Johnny Worthington. He’s the dashing horned one next to Sully in the picture.

Also announced as joining the cast today were The Office’s John Krasinski and Pixar vet Bonnie Hunt. Add to that the fact that Alfred Molina and Helen Mirren are also joining the cast and I’m a pretty happy girl.

I think the eyebrow lift in the picture is my favorite thing. That is sooooo Nathan.
