The world’s most insane-yet-plausible theory about the Pixar universe has been brought to life.

Jon Negroni’s theory about how every single Pixar movie takes place in the same universe is well worth reading on its own merits, but if you haven’t got the time for it, you can easily watch it.

Encompassing every single Pixar movie to date, we follow the theory from its humble Brave beginnings to the dystopian future of A Bug’s Life and Monsters Inc. and how it manages to go full circle. It’s just as impressive as the first time we read it with the added bonus of seeing the clues hidden even deeper than Pixar’s constant A113 references.

At this point we can only guess where Inside Out will fit into the theory.
