Since Monsters, Inc, Pixar animators have been hiding Easter eggs that actually hint at upcoming movies and it's CRAZY!
Some of the Easter eggs aren’t even recognizable until a future movie is released!
So, here are all the Easter eggs, so far, in chronological order:
1.In Monsters, Inc (2001), Nemo from Finding Nemo (2003) is actually seen three times. He’s painted on a mural, hanging in the trailer Randall gets stuck in, and also one of Boo's toys:
2.In Finding Nemo (2003), a boy in the dentist's waiting room is reading a Mr. Incredible comic book from The Incredibles (2004):
3.Also in Finding Nemo, Luigi from Cars (2006) can be spotted driving past the gang as they escape the dentist's office:
4.In The Incredibles (2004), Doc Hudson, who was originally supposed to star in Cars 2 (2011), is parked in Metroville during the final battle:
5.In Ratatouille (2007), Dug's shadow can be seen in an apartment Remy wanders through — Up would later be released in 2009:
6.Also in a Ratatouille short film called Your Friend the Rat (2007), WALL-E appeared as the driver of a vehicle on Mars — WALL-E would later be released in 2008:
7.In WALL-E (2008), Carl Fredricksen's walker with the tennis balls can be seen in WALL-E's home behind his TV — once again, Up wouldn't be released until 2009:
8.In Up (2009), Lotso from Toy Story 3 (2010) is seen in a little girl's room while Carl's house is floating away:
9.In Toy Story 3 (2010), Finn McMissile from Cars 2 (2011) is featured on a poster in Andy's room:
10.Also in Toy Story 3, newt crossing stickers appear in Andy's room, which reference the cancelled Pixar film Newt (2012):
11.In Cars 2 (2011), a car version of the DunBroch family tapestry from Brave (2012) appears in the Ye Left Turn Inn:
12.In Brave (2012), a wood carving of Sulley from Monsters, Inc appears in the witch's hut. This was a nod to the upcoming release of Monsters University (2013):
13.Also in Brave, the witch throws a newt into the potion she's making, once again alluding to the cancelled Pixar film Newt (2012):
14.In Monsters University (2013), toy versions of characters from The Good Dinosaur (2015) appear in one of the scare simulators:
15.In the short film Toy Story of Terror! (2013), you can spot paintings hung in a motel room that depict dinosaurs under a tree, another allusion to The Good Dinosaur (2015):
16.And then in the short film Toy Story That Time Forgot (2014), the three posters in Mason's gaming room allude to three of Pixar's then upcoming films: Inside Out (2015), Cars 3 (2017), and Coco (2017):
17.In Inside Out (2015), giant statues of Forrest Woodbush and Arlo from The Good Dinosaur appear in Riley's memories of a road trip to San Francisco — The Good Dinosaur was released five months after Inside Out:
18.In The Good Dinosaur (2015), Hank from Finding Dory (2016) appears at the bottom of the water when Arlo learns to swim:

21.Also in Cars 3, the guitar from Coco is hung on the wall behind the band playing at the Cotter Pin Bar:
22.In Coco (2017), when Miguel and Hector are on their way to the talent show, a The Incredibles poster is hanging on an alley wall. This was a nod to the upcoming release of Incredibles 2 (2018):
23.And finally, there's apparently an easter egg for Toy Story 4 hidden somewhere in Incredibles 2, but according to creators, the easter egg "probably won’t make any sense until Toy Story 4 (2019) comes out."
