It’s not a Pixar film without classic Easter eggs that the studio has included in nearly all of its 13 films.

But fans were unsure, for example, how Brave would include the legendary Pizza Planet truck (which originated in Toy Story and has been in every Pixar film since) in a story set in ancient Scotland.

I consulted my Twitter followers after I saw the film myself and disappointingly missed ’em all.

Here’s what we collectively found:

The Pizza Planet truck: In the wood shop in front of the The Witch played by Julie Walters when she yells, “Wood carver!”

A113: To be determined (sound off in the comments)

John Ratzenberger: Gordon the Guard

The Luxo Ball: To be determined (sound off in the comments)

After credits: Possibly a first for Pixar, after the credits you’ll find an additional scene related to Merida’s ordering of all the wooden carvings from The Witch.

A character from the next Pixar film: To be determined. Presumably this would be a character from 2013’s Monsters University. However, @WisdomofPixar believes they saw Newt, who was the lead character in a now-canceled Pixar film of the same name. “Look for Newt during a scene where ingredients are being mixed. He’s only on screen for a second or so & no close up,” they write.

Brave director Mark Andrews confirmed several months ago that “everything” would be included. At this point, it’s just a matter of finding them all!

Did you spot any Easter eggs in the film that we didn’t list here?

Quentin Tarantino says he knew about Harvey Weinstein’s behavior: ‘I knew enough to do more than I did’

In a new interview with The New York Times, director Quentin Tarantino — whose films have largely been distributed by The Weinstein Company — admits he knew how Harvey Weinstein treated women.

Earlier this month The Times and The New Yorker published bombshell reports revealing horrific behavior by TWC founder Harvey Weinstein. The reports — and the revelations that came in the days after — rocked Hollywood.

Tarantino remained silent until Thursday’s interview. In it, he tells The Times he “knew enough to do more than I did.”

“It was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” Tarantino said, referencing the stories recently shared by “prominent” actresses.

“I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard. If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.”

Tarantino admits that he can offer nothing but a “crappy” excuse at this point. Even though he heard stories about his business partner on multiple occasions, he “chalked it up to a ’50s-’60s era image of a boss chasing a secretary around the desk. As if that’s O.K. That’s the egg on my face right now.”

The director, whose most recent film The Hateful Eight was distributed by The Weinstein Company, says that he tried to reach out to the disgraced Hollywood mogul after the reports were published, but Weinstein didn’t pick up. More of Tarantino’s remarks can be read over on The Times’ website.

As more women share their stories, Hollywood is starting to take (some) action. Last week The Weinstein Company fired their founder, and The Academy voted to remove him from their ranks.

Explaining their vote to expel him, The Academy said in a statement, “We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over. What’s at issue here is a deeply troubling problem that has no place in our society.”
