If you’re a big fan of Pixar Animation, there’s a good chance that you’ve heard of The Pixar Theory. Originally created by Jon Negroni, The Pixar Theory proposes that every single movie from the animation studio actually takes place within the same universe by finding little threads to connect each and every movie to each other somehow. But despite the fact that Pixar movies contain easter eggs referencing some of the other Pixar movies, it’s just a theory in the end.
But what if characters from the Pixar movies could actually run into each other? Tom Hanks was recently a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which just so happens to be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, the voice of the titular forgetful fish in Finding Dory. And while they were talking about working on Pixar movies, Hanks decided to have the audience close their eyes while he and Ellen improvised a quick scene where Woody from Toy Story meets Dory, and the result is as funny and adorable as you’d expect.

There’s a lot to love about George Miller’s Best Picture nominated action adventure Mad Max: Fury Road. Every facet of the film is impressive, but undoubtedly one of the coolest elements of the film are the post-apocalyptic vehicles that all the characters right around in. There are classic hot rods turned into fast-moving tanks, semi-trucks turned into death machines in eighteen wheels, and that vehicle with the Doof Warrior that is essentially a mobile metal concert from a Dr. Seuss nightmare.
But what if a bunch of other famous vehicles from film and television got a Mad Max makeover? What would cars like the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future, the Mystery Machine from Scooby-Doo or even the staircase truck from Arrested Development look like if they were modified to look like vehicles from the Wasteland? Illustrator Scott Park has answers to all those questions and plenty more with a cool new set of drawings that you can check out after the jump. Read More »

In addition to the LEGO minifgures that come with the various building block playsets, the toy company has also been selling individual minifigures. However, rather than being able to choose which minifigures you want to buy, you have to take your chances by buying them blind and hope you get one you don’t have yet. Or you can be the person who stands in the aisle and tries to feel the little plastic packages to determine if you’re getting the figure you want.
Anyway, if you’re a Disney fan, you’re probably going to be interested in the latest series of minifigures that will give some of Disney’s most famous animated characters the building block treatment.

Toy Story 3 brought Pixar‘s flagship series to an emotionally resonant and thematically sound conclusion, solidifying the the series’ place as a landmark in modern animation and filmmaking. So let’s just be totally honest here: Toy Story 4 can’t help but feel a little redundant. What else do these characters have to say?
A few new updates on the status of Toy Story 4 have arrived, confirming that this project is still very much in the works and racing toward its 2018 release date. All we can do now is trust that the folks at Pixar (who are still, for the most part, geniuses), have a good reason to bring Buzz, Woody and the gang back to the big screen for another adventure.
