4. The Emily Theory

This theory is definitely one of my favorite movie theories to-date. The Emily theory is pretty simple, but extremely crazy. Supposedly, Emily, Jessie’s previous owner, is Andy’s mom. It makes sense when you really delve into it. After three movies, we never actually learn Andy’s mom’s name. Andy is seen wearing an almost identical hat to the one Emily wears in Jessie’s flashback. Plus, Emily’s room is decorated in a retro way that would’ve been common for the time Andy’s mom was growing up. In every Toy Story movie, it’s often brought up how rare and valuable Woody is. Wouldn’t it make sense if Andy’s mom had found the boy version of the toy she loved so much growing up?
