This New Theory About "Toy Story" Will Blow Your Mind

In his most recent Pixar theory, Jon Negroni makes a very convincing case about the true identity of Andy's mom from the Toy Story series.


Note: This theory was created by the same person who determined that all Pixar movies take place in the same universe.

It's suggested that Woody doesn’t remember any of this because "he’s been in Andy’s family for a long time, possibly belonging to his father."


Which totally makes sense, because Woody has repressed the memories created with Andy's father after his untimely death.

Looking more closely at Andy's hat will provide an answer, since it's nearly identical to Jessie's.

Notice the band around Jessie's hat (left) and the faded area where it previously was on Andy's (right).

And the reason why Andy's mom, whose first name is never mentioned, doesn't react to seeing Andy play with her childhood toy is because she's indifferent toward Jessie.


As evidenced by the fact that she gave her up.

"How would you respond if you saw your child with a toy that looked like one that you had as a kid? Your first assumption probably wouldn’t be that they’re the exact same toy," Negroni notes.

Pixar has not yet responded to BuzzFeed's request for comment on Negroni's theory.
