Soul on Disney+: 14 hidden details in the new film Pixar

Herve Mouyal

In good Pixar, Soul contains a few winks, easter eggs and other hidden details. We've noticed a few of them.

THE PIZZA PLANET TRUCK

We had to keep an eye out for the Pizza Planet truck that is hidden in every Pixar movie. In Soul, it appears in the Big Front, in the huge room where souls try to find the Spark that will allow them to go to Earth. It must be said that a lot of easter eggs have crept into this scene. We are going to reveal some of them to you.

WALL-E'S SHIP

Some big Pixar fans will have noticed in the background the shape of the Axiom, the Wall-E spaceship where the human beings waiting to return to Earth one day are grouped together.

THE AIRSHIP FROM UP

Pete Docter, to whom we owe Soul, also directed Up in 2009. It's not surprising to find a wink to his film through Charles Muntz's airship, which can be seen in the background.

THE SUBWAY OF THE INDESTRUCTIBLES

The aerial subway line is exactly the same as in The Indestructibles 2.

A 113

Still in this same scene, if we look to the right, we can see on a panel an "A 113", a well known easter egg from the Pixar films that refers to the famous CalArts school classroom where some of the firm's greatest directors, including Peter Docter, passed through.

THE EIFFEL TOWER

The Eiffel Tower, clearly visible in the decor, can be a reference to several things but one thinks directly of Ratatouille, the adorable chef-cuistot of Pixar who made his arms in the French capital.

THE FORMER MENTORS OF 22

The character in 22 boasts of having cracked all his mentors, who appear on a large board in this scene. Indeed, we can see some famous names and others a little less. But one will retain three names, which are winks at Marvel, with the draftsman Jack Kirby, at Pixar through one of its thinking heads, the late Joe Ranft then at Disney with Joe Grant.

BUT BY THE WAY, WHY IS IT CALLED THAT?

This choice of first name is not insignificant: Soul is indeed the 23rd film of the Pixar franchise. The first name 22 is a nod to all the other productions that preceded it.

THE BOX OF CHINESE NOODLES

A box that we regularly see in Pixar films, from A Bug's Life to Soul and Vice Versa.

CHOCOLATE

In this scene, 22 is trying to find the spark that will allow Joe to return to Earth. The formula behind it is theobromine, one of the main components of cocoa (look at the brown smoke it creates). Cocoa is chocolate, Russell's favorite food in Up There.

THE "WHAT DID YOU BRANG" BRAND

This advertisement that can be seen quickly in the New York subway is this time a nod to Vice Versa. This is the place where Riley's father is hired and the reason his family is moving to San Francisco.

A WINK TO COCONUT

The poster in the background can make us think of Coco and the famous "Dia de lo muertos" that the Disney movie celebrates.

I have always needed to create and for the past 7 years I have been sharing my creativity by producing photo and video content for luxury hotels around the world as well as for brands. I don't like to stay in my comfort zone because I can get bored very quickly. I need to try new things because for each brand the speaking is different.
