The Shining in the Toy Story Trilogy
The Toy Story Trilogy features a mass of references to other Pixar films, both past and future. It’s probably the last place you’d look for a reference to the classic horror film The Shining. That’s right, the Stanley Kubrick horror features heavily throughout the trilogy.
The first hint we see is Sid’s carpet (in Toy Story) which looks very similar to the carpet in the Overlook Hotel.
But this isn’t the only The Shining reference to pop up in the trilogy. The number 237 (Room 237) appears a lot – especially in Toy Story 3.
