Have you heard the one about Andy’s mom?
Copywriter, critic, and conspirer Jon Negroni found himself all over the Internet in early 2014 with his theory that there’s more to Andy’s mom from the Toy Story franchise than meets the eye.
He thinks Andy’s mom is Jessie’s original owner.
^ There’s Jessie’s original owner, Emily, swinging her around during the most depressing Disney song you’ve ever repeatedly cried through.
But then here’s Andy in an interesting hat:
Not only is Andy’s hat not like Woody’s, but it bears a striking resemblance to the ones worn by Emily and Jessie.
But wait – the plot thickens…
Here we have Emily as a teenager.
It’s definitely familiar-ish, at the very least.
There’s more theoretical musings about how Andy’s hat might actually be missing the white band, too.
This all comes from the same dude who started formulating The Pixar Theory, which is the idea that all of the full-length Pixar films are connected, in 2012.
And, the Jessie / Andy / Emily / Ms. Davis theory came about while he was working on it.
So what does Pixar have to say?
