    Walt Disney Co. has all but confirmed the most feverish of movie fans' conspiracy theories: All of the Pixar movies do, in fact, exist in the same universe, run by an evil corporation inside Buckingham Palace, NBC News reported.

    The videos connect "A Bug's Life" to "Toy Story" to "Monsters, Inc." to "Finding Nemo" to "The Incredibles" to "Cars" to "Wall-E" to "Ratatouille," all the way up to the most recent features, "Inside Out" and "Finding Dory." For example, Riley, the homesick protagonist of "Inside Out," makes an appearance in "Finding Dory."

    Lots of other connections have been noted, but none is more compelling than BnL, which stands for Buy n Large. The Walmart-like corporation grows so big in the Pixar universe that by the time "Wall-E" (which the company manufactured) rolls around, it is a ghost company that used to run the universe. For example, the batteries used in the toys in the "Toy Story" are made by BnL.
