A theory which connects all Pixar movies

A theory which connects all Pixar movies
Jul 24 2021 Share

What would you think if you heard that all Pixar movies are connected in one big timeline in the same universe? Published in a 2015 book of the same name, The Pixar Theory attempts to connect all Pixar films into one big universe which features time travel, talking animals and evil robots. It has been in circulation for quite some while, but it repeatedly gets updated as more films come out.

The theory pitches humans, animals and machines all against each other. It starts with the more recent instalment ‘The Good Dinosaur’, in which the meteorite destined to hit Earth completely misses it. Dinosaurs become intelligent – using farming, developing language and even co-existing with primitive humans.

This explains why, in The Pixar universe, many animals are immensely intelligent. With rats having a passion for cooking, octopi driving vans and dogs having their thoughts translated through gadgets, the animal kingdom takes a step back to humanity however. 

As this happens, machines develop more and more advanced technology. And these inanimate objects develop sentience – all because of human emotion. Toy Story shows us how toys rely on humans to survive, with Toy Story 4 introducing Forky, who gains sentience after he is created. 

The world is however being slowly destroyed through pollution. We see this culminate in Wall-E. Humans are forced to leave Earth, with robots taking over. Cars, in fact, retain the personalities of their previous owners and rule for a brief time. Humans eventually return, but due to the pollution, the theory suggests, they evolve…

This brings us to Monsters Inc. Yep, the monsters in the film are just mutated humans (according to the theory at least). The monsters also need human emotion to survive and build portals back in time to scare, and later cheer up, children. This brings us to Boo.

Remember that witch from Brave? The theory suggests that the witch is Boo herself, still obsessed with Sully and wanting to travel in time to meet him. In fact, the witch is quite obsessed with bear-like creatures and has a knack for opening doors into different dimensions. 

If this theory seems too far fetched for you, well you’re not the only one. But Pixar theorists have worked out so many details, including every single Pixar film, to fit this narrative. And it all sounds at least mildly compelling. And every time a new film comes out to contradict the theory (think Onward), the theorists just see it as an opportunity to make it all work!

Dubai opens world’s highest infinity pool ‘Address Beach Resort’

Dubai opens world’s highest infinity pool ‘Address Beach Resort’
Jul 24 2021 Share

Named in March as the world’s tallest infinity pool inside a building, Dubai’s new resort lets you swim 1,000 feet above sea level. Titled Address Beach Resort is a whopping 293.906 meters high, making it nine-tenths as tall as the Eiffel Tower. It is also twice as long as an Olympic-sized pool at 94.84 meters in length and 16.5 meters in width. 

Despite being as impressive as it is, the pool isn’t the only Guiness World Record held by the resort. The skybridge, containing luxury apartments, is at 294.36 meters – making it the world’s highest occupied skybridge floor. A striking architectural addition to the Jumeirah skyline is the beachfront property called the Jumeirah Gate which was opened in December 2020. 

Deputy CEO of Al Ain Holding Federico Rota stated that he and his company are proud to be breaking two Guiness World Record titles with the pool’s opening. The state-of-the-art construction and groundbreaking amenities set new luxury lifestyle standards internationally.

Huge protest in Valletta against vaccination and restrictions
Jul 24 2021 Share

Billed as a freedom rally, some 500 protestors took to the streets of Valletta to protest the use of COVID-19 vaccines and other health restrictions. Planting themselves outside the law courts, the chants ‘no vaccine’ and ‘liberta, liberta’ could be heard as placards such as ‘my body, my responsibility’ and ‘we never stop trying to save you’ waved in the air.

Record low number of people seeking employment

Record low number of people seeking employment
Jul 24 2021 Share

Prime Minister Robert Abela celebrated a record low number of people seeking employment in Malta. Addressing a press conference during the Labour Party’s annual general meeting, Abela highlighted how the number of people registered as unemployed has fallen to record lows, even when taking into consideration the COVID-19 pandemic. Fewer than 1,600 people, according to statistics revealed by the Prime Minister, were looking for work just last week, making this a record in Malta’s employment history. 

2019 saw the latest record low in June, with a low point of just 1,616. The Prime Minister attributed this success to the over €500 million COVID-19 wage supplement that helped workers employed under part-finance wages. As the pandemic forced or even shut down businesses, the wage, Abela stated, helped Malta and the government save and create jobs.
