Unless, that is, you’re Edgar Wright.
The Baby Driver director has an Aquaman Easter Egg dedicated just to him by James Wan, who gamely took on a bet with Wright two years ago involving a campy mid-’60s puppet series named Stingray. The only problem is that Wright didn’t bet money with Wan — he bet an Oscar statuette. So he’s going to get his hands on one of those first.
Some spoilers for Aquaman below.

Summer is almost over and for Disney fans, it’s been an eventful theme park season. While California has been caught up in the pageantry of Pixar Pier’s opening at Disneyland Resort, Florida has been having an “Incredible Summer” at Walt Disney World. The bigger ongoing gala at Disney World, however, has been the opening summer of Toy Story Land, a brand new area of the park at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Themed to Pixar’s beloved animated films, Toy Story Land is merely the first stage of revitalization for Hollywood Studios, which will also serve as the East Coast outpost for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, the new land set to open next year on both sides of the U.S. There’s even a seamlessly connected Star Wars hotel on the way.
As the poet and philosopher Henry David Thoreau once wrote, “The unexamined theme park is not worth visiting.” That may or may not be an extreme bit of paraphrasing, but Toy Story Land is chock-full of Easter eggs; it even adds a few new wrinkles to movie continuity by fleshing out character origins and adding new in-universe elements to the mythos. If you haven’t made it down to Florida yet but you want to plan a trip or just take a vicarious visit to Toy Story Land, then get ready to shrink down to the size of the Green Army Men, because we’re about to enter Andy’s backyard from the Toy Story movies. Here’s your end-of-summer photo tour of Disney World’s Toy Story Land.
