17 Movies With Easter Eggs We Noticed Only After Watching Them Thrice

Movie and animation directors love to hide secret messages in their movies that only attentive viewers can find. These can be characters or props from other movies, a word or number which is symbolic for the production studio, and other Easter eggs.

At CHEERY, we love to watch movies but we rarely pay attention to any hidden messages. But Internet users are more attentive than us.

1. In Chip ’n Dale: Rescue Rangers (2022), you can see that Dobby the house-elf became a Gucci model after the Harry Potter film series was a wrap.

2. In No Time to Die (2021), you can see the bulldog figurine in Bond’s garage which M had given him in Skyfall (2012).

3. In Wonder Woman 1984 (2020), the blond man on the right is Gal Gadot’s husband, Yaron Varsano. And the little girl is Maya, their younger daughter.

4. In Run (2020), a stock photo model appears for a moment, and this happens to be the same stock photo model from Searching (2018). Aneesh Chaganty directed both movies.

5. In Soul (2020), you can see a sign with the number “020386” on it. This is a reference to February 3, 1986—the day Pixar was founded.

6. In John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017), the rotary dial phone is the same model they used in The Matrix (1999).

7. In Little Women (2019), Jo switches writing hands. This is an homage to the novel’s author, Louisa May Alcott, who trained herself to be ambidextrous to continue writing when one of her hands got tired.
