Finding Secrets in Finding Nemo

Finding Nemo 3D in Theaters - Dory knows where to go!

On September 14, 2012, Finding Nemo 3D swims onto the big screen, immersing the next generation of clownfish fans in Pixar's underwater world. Its been nine years since Nemo originally graced movie theaters. Disney·Pixar's 3D re-release gives this generation of little hatchlings their own chance to get caught in the current for the first time.

Whether its the first time or the fiftieth screening, Finding Nemo has dozens of entertaining Pixar secrets and hidden details to search for on the big screen.

Buzz Lightyear, Little Mikey & the Pixar Beach Ball appear in the dentist's office.After being placed in the aquarium, Nemo looks out into the waiting room and sees a Buzz Lightyear action figure and toy plane from Pixar Studios' Toy Story (1995). Behind Buzz is the dentist office's toy chest, hidden inside (upper left of opening) are Mike Wazowski's plush Little Mikey from Monsters, Inc. (2001) and the red star beach ball from the short film Luxo Junior (1986).

An algae covered Sunny, from the Pixar Short Knick KnackAs Gil goes over his escape plans with Nemo, he envisions the aquarium covered in green filth. An algae covered Sunny, from the Award-Winning Pixar short Knick Knack (1989), appears as the figurehead on the aquarium's pirate ship.

The Pizza Planet Truck from Toy Story appears in Finding Nemo.The Pizza Planet Truck featured in Toy Story (1995), has appeared in every Pixar Studios animated feature except The Incredibles (2004). The iconic yellow delivery truck is seen through the eyes of a bagged fish, as Gil continues to discuss the aquarium escape.

Mr. Incredible cameo in the dentist's office.In addition to remembering prior films, Pixar's animators have a tradition of recognizing upcoming works with secret cameos. Brad Bird's The Incredibles (2004) earned a Finding Nemo cameo, as the next planned Pixar release. As the dentist and a screaming Darla deal with Nigel, Gil and Nemo, a young patient in the waiting room reads a super Mr. Incredible comic book.

Luigi from Cars & Cars 2 drives past the escaping aquarium fish.Another pre-release cameo features Luigi, the Casa Della Tires shop owner from Cars (2006) and Cars 2 (2011). The yellow Italian Fiat appears just before the Finding Nemo credits, driving by Gil and the escaping aquarium fish.

A Sulley toilet seat cover in Partysaurus Rex gets fans excited for Monsters University and Monsters, Inc. 3D.To fish for bigger audiences, Disney·Pixar will also release its newest short Partysaurus Rex (2012) with Finding Nemo 3D. The Toy Story-inspired short features the short-armed Rex as a mean, green, party animal. Don't forget to keep those eyes open for a few more Pixar secrets and details, like Bonnie's Sulley patterned, furry toilet seat cover.

Hidden Disney·Pixar - From Cars 2 to Brave

Walt Disney Studio artists were famous for hiding inside jokes or placing caricatures of each other in their cartoons or animated films. Pixar's animators, having some of their own fun, created their own tradition by hiding references to upcoming films in previous releases.

In Toy Story 3 (2010) one of the Sunnyside preschoolers wore a Lightning McQueen t-shirt, paying homage to the upcoming Cars 2 (2011). Prior to that, Disney·Pixar's UP (2009) featured a pink Lots-O'-Huggin' Bear from Toy Story 3, which appeared in a little girl's room with the Pixar ball - both visible as Carl & Ellie's house flew through the city.

As Disney·Pixar's thirteenth animated feature premieres in theaters on June 22, 2012, here's a flashback to BRAVE's first Easter Egg, a hidden cameo in 2011's Cars 2.

With the World Grand Prix shifting to Great Britain, the villains attempt to destroy Lightning McQueen and any support for alternative fuels. With Mater & Lightning flying through London's streets, Holley clears a path by pushing Dr. Z's henchmen, Acer and Grem, into the Left Turn Inn.

As the villainous pair crash into the Left Turn Inn, they end up spilling dozens of pints on the pub's patrons. As soon as the oil spill clears, clearly visible is a Scottish tapestry featuring the fearless highland family from BRAVE as cars.

TRON {easter eggs}

We sat down to watch the original TRON released in 1982. To our surprise there is a Hidden Mickey in the film!

 

About 3/4 into the movie when the Solar Sailor is gliding across the grid, look for Mickey in the landscape!

 

An added surprise! On the bridge of Sark's battle cruiser there is a diagram. On the right you'll see and hear Pac-Man, "womp womp!" ;)

The Little Mermaid {Easter Eggs}

Summer is here, and we generally avoid the heat and crowds of Disneyland Resort. To pass the time we've been introducing our boys to our Disney movie collection. While they are enjoying the films, I am easter egg hunting!

Let's take a look at The Little Mermaid, one of my favorite Disney movies!

I'm not going to mention this...

or what may or may not be the minister's knee (which Snopes.com has proven false btw). I did, however, discover a few really good hidden gems with the help of Eeggs.com!

In the beginning of the movie when King Triton makes his grand entrance into the concert hall look for fab three -- Mickey, Donald and Goofy all in a row! They are to the left of King Triton, closer to the left corner of your screen. On the right side of Triton, closer to the right corner of your screen, you can find a merperson wearing Mickey ears!

Fab three to the left, Mickey ears to the right

This next egg can only be seen in slow mo. When Ariel gives up her voice to Ursula she signs a contract to seal the deal. At first you see the top of the scroll, then it quickly drops down to the bottom. Slow it down you'll see in the middle of the scroll inbetween some writing is a Mickey head!

I hope you enjoyed these as much as we did! Happy hunting! ºoº
