For years, many fans of the Pixar animated films have theorized that the movies and their characters are somehow linked within the same "cinematic universe."

Disney released a video which details the "Pixar Easter Eggs" found in the films, confirming the movie connections.

It starts with a clip from 2016's "Finding Dory," which is paused to show Riley Anderson, the main character from 2015's "Inside Out," visible in the background. From there, a clip from "Inside Out" shows Forrest Woodbush, a character from 2015's "The Good Dinosaur," immortalized in statue form.

The video has been watched more than 14 million times since being posted to the "Toy Story" Facebook page in mid-January, according to Facebook.

Some of the best nods include Nemo ("Finding Nemo") and Jessie ("Toy Story 2") visible in a scene from "Monsters, Inc.," and a nod to "Ratatouille" in "Cars 2."

The video goes on to visually link every Pixar film, including the studio's first two films, "Toy Story" and "A Bug's Life," showing its animators had this planned from the start.
