If you’re into Pixar theories, you’ll mightily enjoy this list and have some ammo for the next trivia throw down. Be warned, though - sure, some of these Pixar fan theories are fun and circuitous, but others are pretty dark and depressing.
 
For instance, the theory about the witch from Brave being Boo from Monsters, Inc. is only part of one major theory.

This theory will make an already sad movie even sadder. The theory holds that Carl dies in the beginning of the film and we’re watching him being escorted by a tiny angel to Ellie, who's waiting for him in the afterlife. No, YOU’RE crying.

Boo loved Sulley and when she grew up, she set out to find him. She used those same doors to travel through time, all the way back to the time of Brave, where she discovers the origin of the Will O’ the Wisps. The carving of Sulley is a big hint that the witch is Boo. Oh, and she’s been to the Toy Story world as well, which explains the Pizza Planet carving.
