    What do you guys think?! Is Onward going to be Andy's Imagination!?

      J, BEN please read this!!!!
      I definitely think that it could be Andy’s Imagination, but if we’re going down this route, then it wouldn’t be Andy playing with his toys or just imagining this world through daydreaming or something - this would DEFINITELY be a dream. I mean you even say that the moon is on the headboard of his BED. And why would Andy consciously make up a story relating to his dad? This is DEFINITELY some dream/subconscious stuff.

      Well, I explained my theories below, so I absolutely doubt this, because it's too whimsical and would render Onward nonreal, killing its belonging to the Pixar Theory.

    • Lahly Bird

      Um no, none of the main characters are Andy's toys

    this is a stretch

    Yo Carlin bros, my best friend and I have a headcanon. It's not just Andy imagining stuff. He plays D&D. This is his way of coping with his dad's death through D&D. And I like the theory of Andy's imagination because Ian's mom looks like Sadness from Inside Out.... and we all know what THAT means.

    Sorry, J. But you could be wrong again. There are two other ways that Onward could have happened, and they can also be combined. First, in my comment on The COMPLETE Pixar Theory, I mentioned the wisps wanting to be alone and isolated, so they went into the sea, evolved to take over animals, and took over the squid in Finding Dory, causing its blue rings. Maybe everything they consumed went to Mars and transformed into magical creatures, living a lone from humans. I say Mars because Mars has 2 moons.
    Another way is Monsters Inc. The time traveling doors open up into different places, right. BnL sent people to Mars, creating a livable atmosphere, but because the people on the Axiom weren't so smart, they made no advancements in technology, died off,a d left the livable place to the other beings. The monsters then had doors to travel through to Mars.
    As the humans gradually died, the monsters ran out of energy for that door, trapping some monsters on Mars. Those doors were disintegrated and their story was told to no one.
    These monsters bred and created those beings, but since, as I also said in my other comment, the doors disintegrated into the wisps, which took control of the monsters and turned them magical. Everything went well until the wisps disappeared into another place, hiding again.
    With both of my theories, I'd conclude that this either comes after Finding Dory, or more likely, after Monsters Inc. which can either be understood before or after Brave.

    What if Andy became a filmmaker and the entire Pixar universe is his movies, which would be why it all started with Toy Story and why the Toy Story franchise is the most touching out of all the Pixar franchises because Andy began his career telling his own childhood story

  • Mortimer Dax Robicheaux

    What if onward is the start of the human's evolution to monsters?

    Andy might have an impressive imagination to be true, but I find it highly unlikely it's his in this movie.
    Come on, the last big pixar movie was "inside out". A story about what is going on inside a little girl's head on the cusp of puberty.
    Now we got a story about some teenagers hanging out going on an adventure in a fantasty land.
    Come on... This is clearly all going on inside Riley's head.

  • Deutsche Hierarchie

    Well this makes a lot more sense than the other brother's theory of it being interstellar.
    This whole fantasty realm situation is a human construct. We habe no evidence to suggest any aliens would possibly conceive if this.
    It being some fantasty story inside someone's head makes much more sense.

    “One.. Can gaze upon something and see the wonder in it. Two can gaze together and Share that wonder. We are forever emitting sparks of imagination. so let’s spark together. In every mind there is a piece of code. That operates our creative functions.It forms a conduit called the Cerebrum-bilical cord.That extends to the farthest reaches of imagination. So let’s build. together we can push back the boundaries until they are a mere speck on the stellar horizon. Let’s fly! Let’s put our minds together and create. everyone on this orb of dreamers contributes an ideas. they ascend the Cerebrum-Bilical cord to congregate in the imagisphere. the natural home of our creative wanderings. so join us. as you have always been. and always will be welcome.

    It’s like they did one theory on this movie, but then thought, “Anyone can make one theory, but WE can make two equally believable ones.”

    Andy works as a story creator and then at the end from onward it shows a Fin screen with a *sign*...the, end. Narrated by andys' voice person

    Oh for crying out loud! You just don’t wanna get your precious Pixar Theory debunked don’t you? Also, I can’t take Onward’s title seriously because of this:

  • RegFromSpongebob77 Vlogs

    i think Andy became a movie writer, so he made onward as kind of a story to resemble his childhood

  • EJ Padilla
    EJ Padilla Month ago +1

    I have two theories
    1: Onward is after the good dinosaur but before brave the fantasy creatures evolved from dinosaurs and then into humans eventually they meet Boo/the witch and go through her door, go to the future bring futuristic technology back go back to the time of brave and go to a different part of the earth die out and the rest of the theory continues
    2: it is between Wall:E and monsters and the creatures evolved from humans into monsters when they talk about times of old they are talking about life on the axiom the stories from their great great great great great grandparents got told and changed so many times they came out with the story of mermaids and unicorns instead of robots

    If the Andy theory is true I don’t think Pixar will do the whole “at the end of the movie you see Andy sitting in front of his computer typing the end.” 1. that would be too easy. 2. Disney wouldn’t blatantly make two toy story related movies in a row 3. not everyone knows about the pixar theory

    Maybe just after brave the magic got messed with and made the creatures from onward "times of old" then humans drove them away with advancing tec they went into hiding id say KEVIN from UP is a fantasy creature wouldn't you and hes good at hiding ?, fast forward a while then when humans left due to all the lead up to wally and in the time they were away the monsters that have been in hiding come out and try to make a life out of whats left (THIS WOULD BE THE MOVIE)eventually over the 700 years before humans get back from wall e they die out and then the humans that come back infuse the magic/ magical items that has been left around with technology to make the cars and planes that have their own personality traits, maybe the evil AI from walle manages to connect with rebuilt infrastructure that eventually lead to the humans downfall, the fact that we had supers ie the Incredibles could be from leftover magic in people that have been transformed or had magic cast on them from the times of brave and through the years they got supermutation due to it showing how humans can be mutated over time and passed down through generations lying dormant and thus giving us monsters later down the line when they have the tech to fully mutate themselves monsters take over however remember their human past and figure a way to use it to their advantage ie make power

    The best ive got feel free to poke holes it was off the top of my head so it will have a few probably 😂

    Even their surname "Lightfoot" is close to Lightyear.......
    Just to add to the theory.
    And "Ian"... it may be a stretch but if his middle name began with a D his name would be " I-An D Lightfoot"........ I Andy Lightfoot.........
    Anyone?? Or am I...... reaching for the sky XD

  • pillFight

    If this is the actual truth about Onward... Then, I think, the whole Pixar Theory is a imagination by Andy. How about the more 'technical' movies with more Robots and space-included themes is Andy as an adult, where he actually works as an animator/child book writer himself, remembering his childhood. That's maybe why the Toy Story car is present in all movies.

    I think it's more likely to be Boo's imagination before she grew up to be the witch in Brave

  • Green Spark

    My first thought just from the trailers on how Onward fits in the timeline is that it's the transitional period between Wall E and Monsters Inc
