It’s a well-known fact that a Pizza Planet truck appears in every Pixar film except The Incredibles (although it is in The Incredibles videogame for those looking for a bonus point at quizzes). So will that trend continue?
Asked during a Q&A if they’ll start throwing the truck’s cameo in at the start of a movie to get it out of the way as Hitchcock eventually did with his cameos, a panel of Pixar head honchos were sure it wouldn’t get to that point.
“No, we’re having way too much fun doing that,” John Lasseter told an audience at Disney’s D23 Expo.
“It happened totally organically. It was on A Bug’s Life and we had to beg, borrow or steal whatever we’d already built so it started there because we needed that vehicle.”
“So here’s the challenge for all of you: Brave , medieval Scotland. Try to find a Pizza Planet truck there! It’s there, we’re not telling you where,” Lasseter offered.
“We will give you $1m!” added Brave director Mark Andrew. “Play money, Goofy dollars.”
This time next year Rodney, we’ll be Goofy millionaires.
