Disney hides Pixar Easter eggs inside Google Street View of Toy Story Land
ORLANDO, Fla. — Never underestimate Disney’s attention to detail (and Pixar’s love for Easter eggs).
Since the first Toy Story film, Pixar has become famous for inserting Easter eggs in its films and shorts. So, when it came time to capture Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida, the creative team at Disney saw an opportunity to take the tradition to an immersive medium.
The creative team at Disney worked with Pixar to identify 8 unique Easter eggs that could be captured and uploaded to Google Street View.
The images were captured over the course of two mornings last summer.
When someone wants to see a first-person “street view” of what it’s like to walk around Toy Story Land, they can also search for some hidden Pixar references including the Pizza Planet Truck and Miguel’s guitar from Coco.
Toy Story 4, currently rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, hits theaters on June 21.
