  • 10 Incredible Pixar Theories

  • 10 Edna Mode the hero

  • If you're certain to take one thing away from The Incredibles, it's this: Edna Mode

  • HATES capes

  • And who could blame her? She's seen hero after hero she kitted out with capes get taken

  • out because of them. It can't be nice to know that someone to get sucked into a jet

  • turbine just because you wanted them to look fabulous.

  • But some online theorists have claimed that Edna used this bitter knowledge to help save

  • the day from Incredibles villain Syndrome.

  • They claim that Syndrome would have likely gone to Mode for his super suit. After all,

  • she is the only superhero costume designer around. And Syndrome was an obsessive Mr.

  • Incredible fan, and probably would have wanted the hero's tailor making his outfit.

  • Knowing that Syndrome was becoming a villain, Edna opted to break her rule and fit him with

  • a cape, hoping it would hinder his evil plans.

  • And it totally works. Syndrome's cape gets sucked into an engine, and he goes down in

  • exactly the way Edna's previous customer did.

  • In a film full of super-powered people, the real hero is a tiny fashionista.

  • 9 Bing Bong the monster

  • You might think that a film that mostly takes place inside a little girl's head would

  • be pretty hard to connect to any other movie. But online fan theorists claim that another

  • Pixar classic is linked to this movie through one character: Bing Bong.

  • He may be an imaginary friend in Riley's head, but some people have claimed that the

  • pink elephant was originally a member of Monsters Inc.

  • The theory goes that Bing Bong was one of the monsters sent through to make children

  • laugh after the end of the film. Bing Bong was assigned Riley, and she was so taken with

  • the monster that, when she got too old for him to keep visiting, she invented an imaginary

  • friend based on him.

  • That would explain why the only things in the Pixar universe that look even remotely

  • like Bing Bong are the characters from Monsters Inc.

  • 8 Up is imaginary

  • It's not exactly ground-breaking to point out that the beginning of Up is really, really

  • sad. Those 5 minutes are so famously heart-breaking that even non-Pixar fans have seen - and blubbed

  • to - those opening scenes.

  • Well, brace yourself because we're about to make them even sadder.

  • This theory posits that old man Carl actually dies alone in his house, shortly after being

  • given an eviction notice.

  • According to this argument, the rest of the film is just Carl's dying dream of going

  • into the afterworld.

  • This would explain some of the more unrealistic elements of the film, like the talking dogs

  • and the multi-colored rainbow bird. Oh, plus the whole flying house thing.

  • The dream theory would also explain the importance of the house and the appearance of Russell.

  • Carl was on the verge of losing everything, and so in his dying fantasy he gave himself

  • the two things he cared about more than anything else: the house he shared with the love of

  • his life, and the son he could never have.

  • Carl passed away lonely, in a house about to be torn away from him. It's no wonder

  • the old man chose to give himself some closure with his dying breaths.

  • 7 Boo is the witch from Brave

  • No doubt the more Pixar obsessed of you will have heard ofThe Pixar Theory”.

  • In essence the theory is a grand unifying story, one that brings all 14 Pixar movies

  • together into one cohesive universe. We'll talk more about that idea later, but this

  • aspect deserves its own entry.

  • Monsters Inc. fans will remember the little girl Boo, and how heartbroken she was when

  • she learnt that her monster Sully would no longer be visiting her.

  • Well, this theory suggests that Boo was so obsessed with finding Sully again that she

  • spent decades trying to find a way. Eventually, she either discovered one of the film's

  • portal doors or invented her own. And that's where things get really crazy.

  • The theory claims that Boo accidently ended up using these doors to travel through time

  • and space to medieval Scotland. From there she used her advanced technological

  • knowledge to gain powers that would have seemed like witchcraft at the time. That's right,

  • she becomesthe witch from Brave.

  • This theory seems crazy, but there are a couple of things that give it weight. Like why else

  • would the witch have an etching of Sully on her wall? And how else would she know about

  • modern-ish companies like Pizza Planet?

  • It's still pretty out there. But could the thing tying the entire Pixar universe together

  • be one giant story of love and devotion?

  • 6 Andy's Dad

  • Disney has been criticized for wiping out its mother characters left and right. But

  • something most people don't think about is that arguably the most famous Pixar movie

  • of all time is missing a dad.

  • In Toy Story we see Andy, his mother, and his sister. But one character we never see

  • is Andy's father. This absence got numerous theorists wondering just what happened to

  • the guy, but one theory has proven more popular than the rest: that he's dead.

  • Andy's dad passing away would explain why Andy's mum doesn't want to wear her wedding

  • ring and even why she has the family moving houses in the first film: the mum is trying

  • to move on.

  • It would also explain why Andy's favorite two toys, Woody and Buzz, are strong male

  • figures. Without a father, Andy is looking for a surrogate paternal influences to look

  • up to.

  • There was even a theory that Woody was originally Andy's father's toy, and that he was passed

  • down after the dad died of polio. However, Toy Story's co-writer Andrew Stanton has

  • come forward to debunk at least that part of the theory.

  • 5 Incredibles Powers Personality

  • We've already established that all it takes to be a hero in The Incredibles universe is

  • a sewing kit and a boatload of sass.

  • But most of the caped, or cape-less crusaders do rely on superpowers for their do-gooding.

  • And that raises an interesting question, where are all these powers coming from, and why

  • do all these different characters get the powers they did?

  • Well, theorists online have claimed that, while they don't know WHERE superpowers

  • come from, the specific powers each individual gets is linked to their personality.

  • After all, each of the heroes does seem to have a gift that matches up remarkably well

  • with how they act in the world. Frozone has ice powers and is cool. Dash has super speed

  • and is hyperactive. And Violet can turn herself invisible and is shy.

  • Thanks to superhero profiles provided on The Incredibles DVD, we know that even minor characters

  • fit this pattern. Blazestone has fire powers, and a fiery temper. Hypershock can shake the

  • ground with earthquakes, but has a dangerous, unstable personality. There's even a character

  • called Meta Man with flying, super strength and x-ray vision powers. His personality?

  • Indecisive.

  • This theory, as well as the Meta Man entry specifically, also help explain why Jack-Jack

  • seems to have a near infinite array of powers: he hasn't formed a personality yet.

  • 4 Wall-E destroyed the world

  • It may be a light-hearted little story about an adorable trash bot trying to help mankind.

  • But Pixar's seemingly innocent robot romp also has a much darker side.

  • We're talking about the theory that Wall-E helped doom the Earth. The argument goes that

  • Wall-E is responsible for deliberately killing off all his fellow cleaning droids. After

  • all, he is the only one left. And we do see him emotionlessly ripping old parts out of

  • broken down robots to keep himself alive.

  • Why did everyone's favorite robo-pal start taking out his colleagues? Well we see in

  • the movie that he's a bit of a hoarder, collecting trinkets and special items to put

  • in his collection. The theory goes that the other cleaning bot, being cleaning bots, tried

  • to throw his collection in the trash, and that Wall-E responded by deactivating all

  • of them.

  • Not only would this idea make Wall-E a MUCH more sinister character, but it would also

  • mean he's partly responsible for humanity being unable to return to Earth for centuries.

  • After all, how is the entire Earth supposed to be tidied up if one of the cleaners is

  • busy taking out the others?

  • 3 Sid is the hero of toy story

  • Sid seems like an undeniable villain in the first Toy Story movie. But has the guy been

  • given an unfair wrap this entire time? Well, this theory about the Toy Story series certainly

  • claims so. You see, Sid wasn't necessarily ever that

  • bad of a guy. Yeah, he mangled some toys as a kid. But as far as he knew, he was just

  • messing with inanimate objects.

  • When Sid learns that the toys are alive, he's clearly distressed. Obviously would that information

  • shock anyone, but Sid suddenly realized he'd been destroying innocent, living things.

  • So the theory goes that Sid devoted his life to making amends for what he did as a child.

  • That's why we see him briefly as a garbage man in Toy Story 3. As the only man in the

  • world aware that toys are alive, Sid has committed himself to stopping damaged but still alive

  • toys being thrown into the incinerator.

  • If only Andy's toys had been thrown in the right trash pile at the end of Toy Story 3.

  • Woody and Buzz might not have as close to destruction as they did.

  • 2 Cars

  • We said we'd return toThe Pixar Theory”.

  • Though there's not enough room to discuss all the intricacies of the incredibly detailed

  • argument here, the fate of humanity is always worth chatting about. And this part of the

  • theory has some pretty interesting things to say about what happens to our plucky little

  • species.

  • In Wall-E we learn two important things: that AI exists and that mankind has been forced

  • off the planet by pollution.

  • So, what's left on Earth? Obviously just sentient technology right? Sentient technology

  • like the cars from Cars.

  • What makes this theory all the more compelling is that Jay Ward, creative director of the

  • Cars franchise, has all but confirmed it.

  • In an interview in 2017, Ward said: “If you think about this, we have autonomous car

  • technology coming in right now. It's getting to the point where you can sit back in the

  • car and it drives itself.

  • Imagine in the near-future when the cars keep getting smarter and smarter and after

  • one day they just go, ""Why do we need human beings anymore? They're just slowing us down.

  • It's just extra weight, let's get rid of them.”

  • You heard it here first. Self-driving cars will kill us all.

  • 1 Nemo love

  • Head's up, this theory is probably the most messed up entry on this list. If you like

  • Finding Nemo and don't want it ruined forever, you might want to get out of here. After liking

  • and subscribing of course.

  • We all remember Finding Nemo as the quest of a father, Marlin, to find his lost son,

  • Nemo. But what if we told you Marlin's reasons for wanting to rescue his son weren't to

  • do with parental affection, but an altogether different kind of love.

  • You see Marlin and Nemo are clownfish, a species that can spontaneously switch genders when

  • there are no viable breeding partners around. In other words, if almost an entire colony

  • of clownfish is wiped out, say by a hungry barracuda, and only two males remain, one

  • will switch gender so the pair can mate.

  • Yep, that would mean that the real reason Marlin is so desperate to find Nemo is so

  • one them can switch genders, and they canumproduce more fish.

  • Yeah, maybe don't share that theory with your little cousin next time he watches the

  • film at Christmas.

  • So, those were 10 Incredible Pixar Theories. Which cartoon conspiracy surprised you the

  • most? Did we leave any weird theories off the list? Let us know in the comments below.
