Even though we're right around the perfect time for real easter eggs, those aren't the kind we're talking about. In this case, we're talking about hidden references to other films within the filmography of Pixar Animation. We've featured some cool easter eggs from Pixar films in the past like Brave and Up, but a new video straight from Disney and Pixar, complete with an intro from Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, puts some more of them on display, including the frequent appearances of the ball from their original short Luxo Jr. There's even a few that I'll bet you didn't even notice. It's not all-inclusive, but it's cool. Watch it!

Here's the video from Pixar, telling fans to join in on the easter egg hunt (via Movies.com):

There's tons more references between Pixar films that you can notice by rewatching the films. Sometimes, you don't even know about them until later because it contains a reference to a character we haven't met yet (like the shadow of Dug in Ratatouille before Up was even released). Some of them are much harder to spot, like the inclusion of A113, the classroom number from CalArts where Pixar/Disney executive John Lasseter and director Brad Bird slaved away over many nights. For a full, expansive list of Pixar easter eggs, check out this Wikipedia article. Otherwise, just keep your eyes open during Pixar movies of the past and future!

    One of my favorites that I actually noticed the first watch through was the caterpillar from A Bug's Life showing up on a leaf in Toy Story 2.
