If you’re a Disney movies fan, ( I’m a self-confessed fanatic of Disney movies eversince I was a kid too, even up until now that I’m already in my mid-twenties).. Anyways, when you’ve watched (or have a re-run) of your favorite Disney movies, you might have missed something that has been hiding in a lot in these animated Disney and Pixar movies.. Or maybe you have seen it many times without you realizing it : A113.
This code, a combination of a single letter and numbers has been appearing in Disney and Pixar animated movies for years. An online movie enthusiast searched and scoured these movies and came up with plenty of those who have the hidden message aka A113.

Now you’re probably curious as to the meaning of this ‘seem to be’ secret code….Well here it is guys, the story behind A113.
As quoted on the Pixar Wiki website, A113 refers to a classroom number used by character animation students at the California Institute of the Arts. Many of its alumni (including Pixar staff) have used the number in their professional works. It is said to appear in some way, shape, or form in every Pixar film.” By putting “A113″ somewhere along the film, the animators are able to give a nod to the other people doing what they do. Totally cool! 🙂
Here’s a photo that supposedly shows that classroom:
So there it is guys, so the next time you sit down for a Disney/Pixar movie marathon, try finding A113 and chances are, you will definitely find it. Share this awesome hidden message to your friends and let the searching begin! 🙂
Have a great day everyone! 🙂
