24 Tiny Details In Disney Movies That Will Blow Your Mind

Diply 5 Mar 2018

One of the best things about Pixar and Disney films is that no matter how many times you watch their movies, you will never find all of the hidden details and Easter eggs. There are just way too many!

Thankfully, I live for quick cameos and subtle references. These are some of my favorites!

1. The beehives in Bee Movie look a lot like gravestones in a graveyard.

This is likely because one of the main jokes in Bee Movie is that bees consider beekeeping to be cruel and exploitative.

I feel like I need to watch Bee Movie again because that movie was honestly ridiculous.

2. Baby Moana shows up briefly in Wreck-It Ralph 2.

That screaming child in Wreck-It Ralph 2 definitely looks a lot like baby Moana.

Obviously, this cameo wreaks havoc with Disney's timeline, but it's still a cute nod to everyone's favorite Polynesian princess.

3. Colette from Ratatouille has a burn mark on her forearm that is typical of people who work in kitchens.

If you've ever worked in a kitchen, then you've probably had this exact burn at least once in your life.

This is a super cool detail that every chef can definitely relate to.

4. The flux capacitor from the Back to the Future series shows up in the train in The Polar Express.

I'm going to need someone to write a quick fan fiction about how Doc Brown's train from Back to the Future Part III becomes the train from The Polar Express.

5. The lantern that Rapunzel touches in Tangled is the the same one her parents launched from the palace.

You can tell because it's the only one that's decorated with the royal seal.

6. Aladdin's magic carpet makes a quick cameo in Moana!

So it's confirmed that these two exist in the same universe.

The magic carpet is definitely looking a little worse for wear in Moana, but that's definitely the same pattern.

7. The last seven numbers on Mirage's business card in The Incredibles spells out "SUPRHRO" on a typical phone keypad. 

Reddit | Sleekeyes

Way to be subtle, Mirage.

Of course, this is a reference to the fact that many of the characters in The Incredibles are superheroes.

8. In Cars, even the airplanes leave tire tracks.

Don't get me started on the flawed logic in the Cars universe, but apparently even the planes are cars in this fever dream universe.

9. In Tangled, when Mother Gothel says, "I love you most," she kisses Rapunzel's hair instead of her forehead.

In fact, whenever Mother Gothel is loving with Rapunzel, it is usually directed at her hair.

Flynn Rider is the opposite and often pushes Rapunzel hair out of her face.

10. This genuinely clever joke in Hercules that went right over my head when I was a kid.

Actually, it would have gone over my head forever if I hadn't found this post.

11. This post about Aladdin that shook me to my very core.

Wait, what? I definitely didn't know this, but it makes so much sense.

I always just figured that Aladdin was, like, underappreciated in his time or something.

12. In Atlantis, King Nedakh is blind because he looked at the crystal during the sinking of Atlantis.

When Atlantis sinks, he rushes over to Kida and covers her eyes, but he fails to shield his own and loses his sight as a result.

13. The bad guys in Disney movies often wear gloves.

In Frozen, Elsa wears gloves to hide her powers, but once she accepts herself, she stops wearing them.

Hans, however, wears gloves throughout the entire movie, so we really should have known that he wasn't a great dude.

14. The batteries used to power Buzz Lightyear are made by the same fictional company that built Wall-E.

Buy n Large is a major corporation whose logo and products often shows up in the Pixar universe, but they are often a lot harder to spot than the Pizza Planet truck.

15. The pattern on Dory's dad is supposed to look like a receding hairline.

Pixar is amazing, so of course they managed to give a freakin’ fish a classic dad haircut. I am too impressed.

16. In Toy Story 3, Nemo makes an appearance, although you might not notice at first.

A sticker of the little fish can be spotted on the side of Andy's toy box.

17. In WALL-E, the adorable robot makes a statue of Eve out of garbage and junk.

Her right arm? It's made with the Luxo Jr. desk lamp. The iconic lamp often shows up where you'd least expect it.

18. Remember the restaurant in Paris in Ratatouille called Gasteau's?

Well, a version of it shows up in Cars 2 and was renamed as Gastow's, because who says cars can't enjoy French cuisine?

19. Fans of the 1988 Miyazaki film, My Neighbor Totoro, will be shocked to know their favorite dust bunny can be seen in Toy Story 3.

It might be an Easter egg that most don't get, but that doesn't make it any less wonderful.

20. Pixar is known for its heartwarming (sometimes heart wrenching) and unforgettable shorts.

So, what else would they do other than title all the books in Toy Story with the title of their favorite short films?
