Do you know what an Easter Egg is - in movies?
To put it simply, Easter Eggs are hidden references, clues or inside jokes that have been inconspicuously (and sometimes not so inconspicuously) placed into TV shows, video games, and movies. They're pretty much a creator's secret love letter to their fans, or in some cases an inside joke with fellow creators.
Hidden treasures, hiding in plain sight are called Easter Eggs because they mimic the idea of an Easter Egg hunt to find them. If you have seen Ready Player One or read the book, you will know the significance of Easter Eggs.
Star Wars Episode 1Easter Egg of all time. In episode one, the action starts with a council meeting. The pods are discussing the state of the federation. If you pause the scene and scan around in one of the pods you can see E.T. and his family.
Hidden Mickey MousesEaster Eggs. At the back of Andy's wall, he has a watch clock with the picture of Mickey Mouse.
Raiders of the Lost ArcEaster Eggs and web pages dedicated to showing you where they are. There a large connection with this film and Star Wars and not the obvious, they both star Harrison Ford. At one point Indiana Jones is holding up a gold artifact, one of the hieroglyphs on it shows both C3PO and R2-D2.
Yes, for as long as I can remember, I became obsessed with Easter Eggs. Sure I also love the delicious chocolate ones as well. But as an "adult" I have become fascinated with the hidden gems in films, games, and other media.
The best, best, BEST thing about Easter Eggs, is that you can share them. The true POWER of Easter Eggs is in the sharing. When you find something of VALUE, when you discover something worth sharing, you cannot wait to do so with people that you care about. You want to teach everything you know. You want to pay it forward by sharing the tips, the tricks, the knowledge that can help the people that you care about to become successful, in business and in life.
OK, last one. If you have young children (or grandchildren) you can score big points with this Easter Egg. At Elsa's coronation as the guests are coming through the door two of the guests might look familiar. Both Rapunzel and Flynn can be seen entering the palace. In the scene, Rapunzel has short hair as seen in the final scenes of the movie Tangled.
