Toy Story 4's First Official Easter Egg Has Been Revealed!

Toy Story 4's First Official Easter Egg Has Been Revealed!

By now, you’ve probably seen the guitars from Coco in the trailer for Toy Story 4, and that’s cool and all, but there’s another one that will kind of blow your mind.

The first official Easter Egg all has to do with Toy Story 2, which came out back in 1999 – that’s 20 years ago!

ET reports that in the opening sequence we see Andy’s little sister Molly part ways with Bo Peep and her flock and they’re taken away in a car with the license plate that reads “RMRF97″.

“There was somebody that worked on [Toy Story 2] that accidentally deleted the movie from the render farm,” producer Mark Nielsen shared with press. “And that was the command on the computer that they pressed that deleted the film.”

Those keystrokes, rm -r -f *, actually “removes everything on the file system as fast as it can.”

Thankfully though, the film’s supervising technical director, Galyn Susman, had left for maternity leave but had taken a copy of the film to work on from home and the film was saved with the backup she had.

“I guess we thought it was appropriate, somehow,” producer Jonas Rivera added. “That the license plate on the car that takes Bo away almost killed Toy Story 2.”

Fun fact about the Easter eggs for the flick: Director Josh Cooley has over 10 pages of imagery that lists every single Easter Egg that’s hidden in the film, and you’ll want to keep a very close eye at that antiques shop.

Toy Story 4 will hit theaters on June 21st.
