Are you fond of watching Disney Pixar animated movies? Or have you watched them with your kids and never ever know that there was a visible alphanumerical code that’s been digging up the scene in just a jiffy? Yup, there is. And they called it the Easter Egg in Media that may let you hunt it after I’m gonna feature you these films with this alphanumerical code that is read as “A113”. Just like Stan Lee who plays his cameo roles in Marvel movies and TV shows.
So back to this article, I’m gonna tell you the mystery behind this A113 that appeared on most of the Disney Pixar movies and I’m gonna show you the scene where it was visibly shown on each of them. A113 was actually a room number in California Institution of Arts where the pioneers of animated film-making first established their industry. It’s where they dipped their toes and digital paintbrushes in graphic design and character animation.
So with the help of John Lasseter who brought Pixar into animation world and once was a student in that room number and in honor of the pioneers of digital animators in their humble beginnings, he featured this room number A113 on some of his Pixar films. Same thing with his classmate Brad Bird who did it in some of his movies and animations like The Simpsons, who later rejoined him for Pixar on year 2000. Brad Bird’s movies were The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, and Ratatouille. Mission Impossible – The Ghost Protocol, which became the highest-grossing and best reviewed film of its franchise, was his first live action film in 2011 that he directed.
A113 was first used by Brad Bird for a license plate number in the “Family Dog” episode of “Amazing Stories”, an anthology TV series that was first aired on September 1985. A113 appeared in some TV shows and films. It’s not just Disney Pixar, but some other film and TV productions has that too. But, I’ll just show you only about Disney Pixar’s, since most of their animated films are top-grossing and much popular to kids, though I showed some of non-Pixar films too. Are you ready?
