Best Pixar movie trivia of all time
Trivia: Jordan Nagai, who eventually got the part of Russell, showed up to an audition with his brother, who was actually the one auditioning. However, the director realized Nagai behaved and spoke non-stop like Russell and chose him for the part. A similar situation happened with the casting of Short Round for Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, whereby Jonathan Ke Quan was cast when it was actually his brother auditioning for the part.

Trivia: Near the beginning of Ratatouille, when Remy is in the sewers and begins to make his way up to the skyline of Paris, he is startled by a barking dog in one of the apartments. If you pause and look at the silhouette of the dog, it greatly resembles Doug the dog, from the 2009 Disney/Pixar release Up. Obviously another precursory nod to an upcoming movie by the geniuses at Pixar.
Trivia: When Cruise brings the mobile simulator to the beach, it makes the classic Apple startup sound that Mac computers make. Apple founder Steve Jobs funded Pixar in its early days and was a major reason for the company's success. The same sound can also be heard in Pixar's Wall-E.
