‘Inside Out’ Easter Eggs

Inside Out is Pixar’s latest movie, about what goes on inside a young girl’s mind. Her emotions are the main characters, each one of them performing different duties for Riley, the 11 year-old girl they inhabit. Riley isn’t too happy because they just moved to San Francisco. When Joy is lost in the recesses of Riley’s mind, it’s up to the other emotions to hold down the fort until Joy can make her way back.

Inside Out was directed by Pete Docter, who also directed Up. His daughter was the inspiration for the movie.

Pixar (and Disney, for that matter) is notorious for including Easter Eggs in their films. For instance, you will find “A113” in every Pixar movie; it represents the classroom at California Institute of the Arts where Brad Bird and John Lasseter (Pixar folks) studied character design. Here are Easter Eggs for you to spot in Inside Out.



PICTURE THIS

The background memories on shelves inside or outside of Headquarters are shots from the “Married Life” scene in Up.

ROAD TRIP

As Riley and her parents trek to San Francisco, they come across birds on a telephone wire from production designer Ralph Eggleston’s 2000 short film For the Birds.

GLOBAL DÉCOR

The globe in the Riley’s classroom has been used in all the Toy Story films.

FAMILIAR FASHION

STUCK ON YOU

Some of the background city cars of San Francisco have bumper stickers from Cars.

TECH SAVVY

Dad’s company, Brang, is a nonsense word intended to sound like a startup that would fit in with the San Francisco tech scene.

SIGN HERE

A sign on a parking meter in San Francisco reads, “Quarters and Dollar Coins or Barter During Burning Man.”

IT’S ALL ABOUT LOCATION

As a tribute to the Walt Disney Family Museum, the filmmakers set Riley’s hockey rink in the exact spot the museum is located in San Francisco.
