Barring large scale theories about interconnected universes, and looking at a slightly more realistic point of view, can we say that Andy from Toy Story and Riley from Inside Out live in the same "world"?
Both seem to live in relatively non-fantastical representation of the world (talking toys and inner voices notwithstanding — which neither know about).
Given that Pixar leaves clues in their movies, can we tell if Andy and Riley could meet?
In order of preferred answers, I'd prefer first-order relations between films so evidence of shared elements between Toy Story and Inside Out:
- Both Andy and Riley move house and eat pizza, did they use the same mover or eat the same pizza?
- Riley drove through the midwest, near landscape similar to where Lotso was left.
I'll also accept answers where another Pixar movie is used for the connection, for example:
- Did Andy and Rileys parents both shop at Buy 'n' Large (from Wall-E)?
- Did Andy and Rileys parents both own a copy of Chef Auguste Gusteau's book "Anyone Can Cook" (from Ratatouille)?
