Hidden Items in Brave - The Pixar Ball & A113

Although our previous post highlighted our (very) complete review of the Brave 5-disc Ultimate Collector Edition Blu Ray, we thought it would be best to have a separate post containing the hidden items of Brave.

UPDATED November 14, 2012 - Higher resolution screenshots have been added and an additional hidden reference to Joe Ranft. The screenshots have been brightened as well as sharpened to try and bring out some additional details from the hidden items.

1) Pixar Ball - When reviewing the Blu Ray, I believe I have come across the famed Pixar Ball in wood form. If it is in fact the Pixar ball, Pixar Post would be the first blog to find the coveted ball - and we're excited about that fact! To give you a reference of where the ball is, the first frame shows the ball tucked in a pile of other carvings (time code 00:33:33).

When the angle changes slightly, you can see it zoomed in a little closer (time code 00:33:36).

2) A113 - Thanks to the keen eye of our reader (user Gray Catbird...or, Antoine) he pointed out that there was an interview with the amazing Tia Kratter (on the Media Mikes site) posted on November 12, 2012 in which she referenced that the A113 was located above the door in the witches cottage. I swear I had looked there before and what I didn't realize is that it ONLY appears at one angle for one shot! Sure enough, after going frame-by-frame again (looking at the outside and inside of the door) that the roman numerals of ACXIII (or A113) appeared above the door inside the cottage. It's really faint, but if you look closely, it's there! Thank you again to our readers and to Tia for the tip!

3) Joe Ranft Reference - Our reader (user Gray Catbird) came through again and found another article on Mashable's site that referenced a tribute to the late, Joe Ranft. If you look closely, you can see an image of Joe's face carved in the side of a box. I swear, when you read things like this, it really makes you wonder what else is hidden in Brave that the average viewer would never know about it unless they heard it from a Pixarian themselves!

4) Newt Reference - Pixar's Newt may have been shelved, but many have speculated that this is a nod to the fallen film. It would make sense seeing as so many witches potions call for eye of newt (time code 00:35:06).

5) Reference to Sulley from Monsters, Inc. / Monsters University - We can't claim to have found the additional items in the Blu Ray as they were officially released via Disney•Pixar previously (time code 00:33:06).

What we can say though is that we noticed a similar image when reviewing the Blu Ray Extras disc 2 - check out this much clearer image of Sulley.

6) Pizza Planet Truck - Time code 00:33:10

Not Found (possibly):

The other item that may yet to be found is a reference to a future Pixar movie. In all of the Pixar movies there has been a hidden element to tip off a future Pixar release - what could it be for Brave? Disney•Pixar did note that Sulley was in reference to Monsters University - only time will tell if there is another hidden character from a future movie hidden as well.
