There’s a mysterious code that appears in not just one, but nearly every Pixar movie ever made. You have probably seen it time and time again without ever realizing it. The hidden message is everywhere.
Don’t believe it? An online movie enthusiast was scouring through these movies to find examples and came up with plenty from both Pixar and Disney movies. The hidden message is everywhere.
You can see it in “Toy Story” on the license plate of the Pizza Planet truck.
It appeared again on a box in “A Bug’s Life,” but perhaps it was just a strange coincidence.
In “Finding Nemo,” it was on the diver’s camera. You may say something fishy was going on here.
This mysterious code was also the coordinates for Mr. Incredible’s cell in “The Incredibles.”
You can see it twice in “Cars”: once on a train…
…and here it is again on Mater’s license plate.
It was on a tag on one of the rats in “Ratatouille.”
And in “Wall-E,” it was the code signaling everyone to evacuate planet Earth.
You were probably too busy crying to notice it, but it was also the courtroom number in “Up!”.
You could spot it on a plane…
…on a screen……and again on Mater’s license plate in “Cars 2.”
This was a tricky one. Only the sharpest of eyes could see it in Roman numerals above a doorway in “Brave.”
It was on a door in “Monsters University.”
But strangely, it also showed up in non-Pixar movies, such as “Lilo and Stitch.”
Here it is in “The Iron Giant.”It’s coming right for you in “The Princess and the Frog.”
It’s easy to find it in “The Brave Little Toaster.”
And what do you know, you can even see it in “The Avengers.”
Not only once, but twice!
It’s not just movies””it also makes appearances in TV shows such as “American Dad.”
And it’s been spotted in “The Simpsons” more than once.
So what exactly is this A113 thing? A conspiracy? A secret code? A hidden message? Nah, it was the classroom where many of the animators at Pixar, Disney, and several other studios discovered and mastered their craft.
A113 refers to a classroom number at the California Institute of Arts. This room was used for first year graphic design and character animation, where many of the animators at Pixar and Disney (and other studios) were taught. By putting “A113″³ somewhere in the film, these animators are able to give a nod to the other people doing what they do. And that’s awesome.
Try to find the numbers in the next animated movie you watch. Chances are, you will. Share this neat hidden message with others.
