Disney Has Been Hiding A Secret Right In Front Of Our Faces. If You’ve Never Noticed It, Here’s Proof.

Disney movies always have the power to capture and draw you in immediately. So, it’s hard to pick up the very well thought out details that are strategically placed in the films. It turns out, that one of the most clever details in many Disney/Pixar films is the code A113. So what does A113 mean? It turns out it’s a reference to a classroom number at the California Institute of Arts where most of the animators studied and first learned character animation. This is kind of neat, creative way alumni have shown their appreciation for the school and their education.

A113 simply refers to the classroom number where many animators learned their craft. A113 refers to a classroom number at the California Institute of Arts. This room was used for first year graphic design and character animation, where many of the animators at Pixar and Disney (and other studios) were taught. By putting “A113″ somewhere in the film, these animators are able to give a nod to the other people doing what they do. And that’s awesome.
