Luca director reveals where to spot classic Pixar easter eggs

·2-min read

Luca director Enrico Casarosa has suggested where fans can locate classic Pixar Easter eggs within his new movie.

As longtime watchers will be aware, the animation powerhouse always mixes in special nods to its previous movies and future worlds – 20 massively obscure ones you can check out here – so it's no surprise to learn that Luca follows this tradition.

Chatting to CinemaBlend, the Italian filmmaker pulled back the curtain on his new film.

"We always put a little Luxo ball, we always put some special names and numbers like A-113. Those are around," he shared, before linking to one of the more deeply embedded references straight out of Toy Story.

"There is a well-hidden Pizza Planet truck, let me give you some background – it's more toward the third act of the movie."

Get those microscopes out, folks and see if you can spot it.

Further along, Casarosa also revealed that Luca harbours a wink towards Pixar's upcoming project Turning Red, which follows a teenage girl who transforms into a giant red panda whenever she gets too excited.

"We have a little Turning Red secret one, but it's very well hidden and we don't want to spoil any surprises for Turning Red. So that might be more of a later reveal."

Luca is available to watch now on Disney+.
