Since the release of Toy Story, Pixar’s very first film, the animation studio has become famous for including a series of consistent Easter Eggs in each one of their films and shorts. From relevant inside jokes, to hidden references to other films, Pixar has turned the practice into an art form, keeping the world on their toes with each release, as fans scour the films frame by frame in search of the newest hidden gems.
So, when it came time to capture Toy Story Land for placement on Google Street View, the team at Disney saw an opportunity to bring the iconic tradition to life in a brand-new way. Working hand in hand with Pixar, Disney identified eight unique Easter Eggs, and hid them throughout the land on the day it was captured.
The Easter Eggs include:
- A guest posed as Sid, the main antagonist from the first Toy Story film.
- A sports jersey bearing the name “McQueen” and the number “95”, in reference to Lightning McQueen, the protagonist from the Cars franchise.
- A guest playing Miguel’s guitar, a major piece from the film Coco.
- A toy version of the Pizza Planet truck, which appears in each Pixar film.
- A shirt featuring the Buy n Large logo, a fictional brand spanning across the Pixar films.
- “A113”, a hidden sequence appearing in each and every Pixar film.
- A pair of guests holding umbrellas in reference to the Pixar Short, “The Blue Umbrella.”
- A backpack draped with a luggage tag featuring Nemo.
