The Antique Shop in Disney Pixar’s Toy Story 4 contains Easter Eggs from every Pixar movie! Check out the details and some of the Easter Eggs.
If you are a Disney Pixar movie fan who enjoys looking for hidden Mickeys, Easter Eggs and hidden references in their movies, then you are going to love Toy Story 4 and particularly the Antique shop in the film. A few months back, I visited the Pixar campus and learned all the intricate details that went into one of the most difficult sets in Toy Story 4, the Antique shop. One of the reasons the Antique shop was one of the most difficult sets to antimate is due to the amount of items located within it. This also leads to a perfect opportunity for animators to place all the Easter Eggs within it! In fact Director Josh Cooley stated at the Toy Story 4 press junket in Orlando last week, “If you pause any frame in the story (Toy Story 4) you’ll see something in the background. From every movie Pixar’s ever done, there’s something in the antique store.”
The biggest challenge in the antique store is the fact that it contained over 10,000 items and props. The store became so difficult to keep track of that set directors started calling the sections within the store “neighborhoods” and each neighborhood was marked with different color carpets. Each neighborhood within the antique store also had a specific theme such as “the kitchen wares”.
With 10,000 items to find and shop for, after awhile they became “lazy” as Josh Cooley says and went with items they already were familar with, ie Easter Eggs from other Pixar films! Let’s take a look into some of the Easter Eggs we already know are within the Antique Shop!
In the Toy Story 4 trailer is where we first spot Tinny from Pixar’s 1988 animated film Tin Toy. Tinny is not only seen as an Easter Egg in the film but it was also added to the new Toy Story 4 Mattel seven-inch line of figures. You will also want to keep an eye out for:
A painting of the Up dogs playing poker
Carl and Ellie’s house from Up
Bing Bong’s rocket from Inside Out
A record of “Remember Me” from Coco playing on a gramophone
A pinball machine from the aquarium from Finding Nemo
Elastigirl’s Elasticycle from Incredibles 2
A scream canister from Monsters Inc
Casey Jr. cookies from A Bug’s Life
While the Antique store contains Easter Eggs from every Pixar movie, it also contains other fun little mentions. Such as the Oakland A’s legend Henderson in bobblehead form seen above. And even the Antique store address is the same street number address of Pixar. Pixar also has been known to throw in some Easter Eggs from upcoming films, which the next slated Pixar movie to be released is Onward. However, when asked about that the only clue we received is it is NOT in the antique store.
