Disney Plus’ new short 22 Vs Earth drops on the streaming service today, April 30th. Since the success of Soul movie, even winning an Academy award this month, fans have been drawn to Tina Fey’s character 22. The new short is just over 5 minutes long and follows 22 as she puts together a group of Souls who are against the planet Earth. It is an adorable short, and of course I had to collect some of my favorite quotes from it. Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to interview director of the new short, Kevin Nolting and find out some fun facts, Easter Eggs and more! Check out the details of my interview on 22 Vs Earth quotes, Easter Eggs and more!
22 Vs Earth Easter Eggs
Everyone loves a good Easter Egg, especially when it comes to Disney movies, so I had to ask 22 Vs Earth director Kevin Nolting if he would share any fun Easter Eggs we can look out for in this short. He was able to share one of them with us, he was able to incorporate his favorite movie Apocalypse Now, into the short and there was even a quote in the short where you will hear Souls yelling out the phrase. There are some other Apocalypse Now references and Easter Eggs, such as the name of the group 22 creates is named APOCALYPSE, which is a very cute acronym.
More Easter Eggs Spotted
- The young Souls wear masks which resemble The Incredibles masks.
- When 22 takes the Souls to the cafe, there is a trolley car which resembles The Trolley Car Cafe at Disney World.
- There is a balloon which resembles the balloon in the Disney PIXAR’s film Up.
- When 22 tells the Souls to steal items, there is a fire truck shown which resembles Red from Disney PIXAR’s Cars movies.
- There is a horse in the room which 22 gathers with the Souls, which may be an accolade to the horsemen from Apocalypse.
- In the room where 22 gathers with the other Souls in Apocalypse, name tags are dorned on the wall. One has to wonder if those are the names of anyone who worked on 22 Vs Earth and/or Soul movie?
