Fans Spot Hidden Toy Story Reference In Turning Red

Disney fans have been hard at work hunting for easter eggs ever since Turning Red hit Disney Plus last week.

As with any Pixar film, there are plenty of references to previous films hidden in the background of Turning Red, and we're having a field day discovering them.

Most recently, fans have spotted a reference to Toy Story in the background of one dramatic scene in the film.

Check it out here:

Did you spot it on your first watch?

As well as that, there's a separate Buzz Lightyear reference hidden among Meilin Lee's friend group, ahead of the upcoming film Lightyear.

Blink and you'll miss it, but Mei's best friend Miriam carries around the Buzz reference under her arm in a few scenes.

The film Lightyear, starring Chris Evans as Buzz himself, is scheduled for release in the UK this June.

While some viewers are keeping themselves busy looking for more hidden easter eggs in Turning Red, others were touched when they spotted a subtle diabetes reference in the film.

It turns out that, not only one, but two different characters are seen wearing diabetes patches, and though there's no direct mention of it in the Pixar animation, viewers were thrilled to see themselves represented.

After watching the film, one fan tweeted: "Although these characters only had a few seconds of screen time, as a person who has had type 1 diabetes since the age of 7, I was pleasantly surprised to see actual representation of it in a Pixar movie!!"

Susan Fong, the technical supervisor and member of Turning Red's all-female production team, confirmed that the patches seen on some of Mei's classmates are, in fact, diabetes patches.

She said: "It was a remarkably easy thing to incorporate into this film. And I think a lot of that goes back to the fact that we’ve had a kind of grassroots effort, really probably started around the time of Toy Story 4 of trying to get better representation of what the real world looks like into our characters."

You can watch Turning Red now on Disney Plus.
