Mini-Obsession: The Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks Theory

pixartheory 1

I’m a nerd. A Book Nerd and A Film Nerd and I am proud. That being said there are so many fantastically nerdy things happening around us at all times it’s hard to pin down one specific thing to focus on. However… Some wonderful people from the internet knew exactly what I needed and so they let their Nerd flags fly super high and created

The Disney Theory

The Pixar Theory

The Dream Works Theory

It started back in 2013, so far as I can tell, blogger John Negroni spent countless hours actively connecting the Pixar Cinematic Universe with the purpose of finding  a common thread. Below is what he discovered.

I was a child when Disney first started pointing out the hidden Easter Eggs they’d been leaving in their movies. I’d always assumed the Disneyverse  was interconnected, in games like Kingdom Hearts and in TV Shows like Once Upon A Time. It explained why we could find so many similarities within the worlds of other characters.  Especially the Disney Princesses which have their own theories. In fact The Disney Theory has way more movies connecting than Pixar does so I was pleased to find that there’d been an idea behind that as well.

The Disney Theory shows the evolution and progression of the world inside the Disney Universe, whereas the Disney Princess theory explains how and why all the Disney Princesses and their kingdoms are connected to other Disney movies.

The only Dreamworks theory i’d found had tons of plot holes, missed connections and seemed to be modeled closely after our buddies over at Pixar. But it spins an interesting tale of intellectually gifted animals and the obliteration of dragons. Though this may be a “mini-obsession” something tells me I’ll be looking further into these for some time.

The Pixar Theory has been made into a book as well as spawned a branded website.

Mini-Obsession: What Dates Do They Die?

c03aacba0d4db273714ae7278d8b75a57847845150090983815.jpgI’m reading The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin, I hadn’t made it past page 35 before my obsession kicked in.

They went to a soothsayer who told them the dates of their deaths. Of all the things they could’ve chosen to ask they decided on that. 🙄

They were all so shaken no one spoke of it….Until their dad died. Then we finally get to know that each sibling asked for the date of their death and each sibling was told something dramatically different.

The book provided all of Varya’s details, January 21, 2044 – age 88. Daniel the second oldest was also provided November 24, 2006 at age 48.

That’s when things become tricky, now of course I’m sure that the book will reveal exactly when and how these siblings meet their fates but having been given the first two I wanted to know the years of the others. Simon’s obviously dies in 1982 as that’s when his section ends. He dies young but that’s all we know.

Klara admits she dies at 31 though and by using her age at the time of the reading (9 in 1969) at least we know she kicks the bucket in 1991 or maybe 1990 depending on her actual birthday…🤔

This is what I worked out so far.

confessions of ugly stepsister

While writing this post, I must admit I haven’t actually started reading this book yet. I probably will have read a few pages, once this has been published.

I’m finally getting around to reading Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire author of “The Wicked Years,” series. Based on the children’s story Cinderella. Maguire uses his typical flair to retell the classic tale from the perspective of the sisters left behind.

The story is set in 17th century Holland and since I’m not familiar with it at all. I’ll just have to read on to find out more about it.

I finished reading Kindred by Octavia Butler, yesterday afternoon. The fantastical tale of a modern woman of the 70s transported to the antebellum South to save the life of a young boy named Rufus. Our heroine endures, the systematic abuse of the time period while trying to complete her mission and return home. This book will infuriate you, bring tears to your eyes and have you cheering for the unspeakable. But if you read it, you’ll be happy you did.

I also recently finished Hart’s Hope by Orson Scott Card. I respect that man as a pioneer in the speculative fiction genre but regretfully disliked this book a lot. The reasons are endless and you can read more about them here. Definitely check it out for yourself before making your final opinions.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m honestly not sure I’ve been meaning to finish reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman, but I also wouldn’t mind starting a new series…decisions….

I am halfway through Orson Scott Card’s Hart’s Hope. I discovered the book while reading Card’s How to Write Science Fiction and Fantasy. While Card explained his worldbuilding techniques he also described how he came to design the world in Hart’s Hope. How a simple mishap on his mao created the world and its characters. Set during a time of wizards, Kingdoms and the introduction of Monotheistic religion  (Christianity) the book seems to be about a town who’s monarch is thwarted replaced and exiled continuously through means of divine intervention and sorcery. So far the story is shaping up to be an interesting one though almost halfway through I’m not sure who I’m rooting for.

What did you recently finish reading?


I finished reading “How to Write Science Fiction and Fantasy by Orson Scott Card. This book is the reason I started reading Hart’s Hope. Prior to buying this book I was oblivious to who OSC was but I’m better off for having read it and was able to complete the outline for my very own novel.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I am as always lately unsure of what the next book will be. On the one hand starting a new stand-alone novel is always fun. A completed story that doesn’t warrant a new bookshelf though I did purchase quite a few series last year that I’ve been looking over. We shall see.

What We’re Reading: Artemis Fowl (The Eternity Code) 

Book Three in my #2017BookReviewChallenge is the third Artemis Fowl book. My first thought was…. wow.

Someone actually got the jump on Artemis Fowl. A life interacting with faeries has made Artemis soft, complacent and good- natured .

Still dabbling in the underworld, a business deal goes south, and Artemis is forced to beg for Butler’s life while also bargaining his memories to help protect both the fairy world snd the real world from the villainous John Spiro.

The unscrupulous Spiro, has stolen the  C cube a tech holy grail designed by Artemis from stolen fairy technology. Butler was mortally wounded and the fairies were severely comprimised.

Artemis and the gang come together to take down Spiro and retrieve the cube but when it’s all over Artemis won’t remember a thing.

The third installment of the Artemis Fowl series had me on the edge of my seat. We see glimpses of Artemis changing into a better person as a result of his friends while forcing him to outthink a formidable opponent.

I truly hated the villains and cheered for our heroes. The final moments of the book lay on the emotion as our group disbands for the safety of the fairy kingdom.

As always the book was well written, if you loved the  first two you’re in for a real treat with this one!

What We’re Reading: Artemis Fowl  (The Arctic Incident)

Trudging along through my own personal book challenge I’m adding book 2 of the Artemis Fowl series to my read pile. 

An amazing follow-up to the original, The Arctic Incident manages to bring everyone back for a fast paced action packed story.
That’s not to be clichè short of the preliminary therapy session in the beginning everything following is one laser blast after another. 
In what can only be Colfer’s ironic sense of humor, Artemis Fowl is being extorted. Having bested the faeries last year after kidnapping and later releasing captain Holly Short he’s terrorizing staff at a prestigious boarding school. With his mother well and on her feet Artemis has been mounting a search for his father….and he finds him.
Actually the Russian Mafiya find him and hold him for ransom. He’s ready to go kick some Russian butt when he’s accosted by Holly Short, something sinister below ground cause the two worlds to collide.
I especially enjoyed the semi-closing of one story arc while they also teased the very likely pairing of Munch Diggums and Artemis Fowl.
Eoin Fowler is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
