Pixar Fan Theories That Just Might Be True

And one that, thankfully, is probably not.

  1. 1

    Edna Mode hates capes because she lost someone she loved to the inside of a turbine engine.

    Edna and Stratogale were a couple, and Edna never got over the heartbreak of her death. Why else would she be SO against capes? From a pure design standpoint, they're fabulous.

  2. 2

    Andy's father is dead.

    This theory is sadder (what else can we expect from Pixar), but actually makes more sense than the one that suggests his parents are divorced because it explains why he didn't show at Andy's birthday party.

  3. 3

    Sully was skinned to make a toilet seat cover.

    We all hope this one is NOT true because it's so DARK! Tumblr user rantingrandall pointed out this toilet seat cover in Partysaurus Rex, which would be no big deal if Randall hadn't once said this to Sully: "I heard humans skin monsters and make toilet covers out of their fur...." Not cool, Pixar. This one is NOT COOL!

  4. 4

    Carl is dead.

    This Sixth Sense-esque twist has Carl dying in his sleep after the court gives him his walking papers. Russell is his angel who will earn his wings (aka his Helping the Elderly Badge) by helping Carl cross over. Thanks, Pixar fans. You managed to make this movie even sadder.

  5. 5

    Bing Bong did NOT die.

    No need for sadness, guys! If you believe the "all Pixar movies exist in the same Universe" theory, then you must know that Riley met Bing Bong when he came into her room to scare her, so he's not dead, but still working at Monsters Inc. ... Unless of course someone used his skin to make a toilet seat.

  6. 6

    Anton Ego's mother is the trigger happy old lady from the cottage.

    Remy steals his recipe book from her house at the beginning. When Anton eats the ratatouille, he flashes back to his mother's kitchen. Why? Because he'd eaten that exact recipe before.

  7. 7

    Wall-E killed all the other Wall-Es.

    There is a really depressing (even for Pixar standards) that Wall-E. Thankfully, reddit user, kirlts, pointed out that the video game was based on an earlier draft, and in the game, all the other Wall-Es died in a sandstorm... not at the hands of a cannibalistic, killer robot. Phew.

  8. 8

    The witch from Brave is a time traveller.

    It seems obvious. 1. She's magical. 2. There's a carving of an SUV on her work table. 3. She knows an awful lot about modern call answering systems. But this theory goes even further. Okay. Here we go. The witch disappears at doorways. Who else does that? The staff at Monsters, Inc. Who was real good friends with those guys? A little girl named Boo. Ergo (ipso facto) Boo is the witch from Brave.
