Fans of Disney Pixar movies love to scour the screen in search of the “hidden gems” that filmmakers sneak into each film:
- WALL•E’s explorations uncover a Mike Wazowski antenna ball, paying homage to Monsters, Inc.
- In Up, the classic Luxo Jr. ball can be seen in the girl’s bedroom as Carl Fredricksen’s house flies by her window.
The Disney Pixar epic action adventure Brave features a few such gems, two of which are revealed here:
The Witch, an eccentric crone disguised as a woodcarver specializing in whittling wooden bear figurines and conjuring haphazard spells, showcases her mysterious and inexplicable knowledge of the future with a carved figurine of the infamous Pizza Planet truck, an iconic delivery vehicle that’s appeared in nearly every full-length feature film from Pixar Animation Studios since 1995’s Toy Story.
In addition, a carving of Sulley, the lovable blue monster slated to return to the big screen in Monsters University in 2013, appears on a piece of wood in the home of the Witch, an eccentric crone and woodcarver in the Disney Pixar epic action adventure Brave. Can you spot Sulley?
