My 7 Favourite Easter Eggs in Movies

The real and the planted easter eggs in movies
Can you name the movie?
I love the whole idea of Easter Eggs in movies and with a Panasonic 4K TV you will find it a little bit clearer to catch some of these.   I have to admit, when I first heard of these I thought they meant just that..... that there were actual eggs hidden in movies and we had to find them like a giant Easter egg hunt......

I know!

Just in case there is anyone left out there that doesn't know what Easter Eggs in movies means, these are inside jokes, hidden messages or homages to other films placed somewhere within the movie.

So from my memory and a little help from the guys over at Movie Easter Eggs here are my top 7 Easter Egg Movie Moments:


1.  Lion King in Toy Story

Hakuna Matata being sung in the car from Toy Story, as we often sang this with Max so is always a nice surprise to hear.

There are many Easter Eggs in all the Disney and Pixar movies.  Some are very obvious such as Rapunzel attending Queen Elsa's coronation, and some not so clear such as finding the room number A113 in all the films.


2. R2D2 in Indian Jones

I've heard about this one and make a point of looking out for it whenever I'm watching Raiders of the Lost Ark... but I get involved in the film and completely forget to look out for it... until the credits role and my memory kicks in again!

3. Stan Lee & Alfred Hitchcock Cameo Appearances

I love that both these guys feature in their films.  Obviously being a Marvel fan I look out for Stan Lee within seconds of the movie starting and one of my favourites is seeing him in Big Hero 6!  As for Alfred Hitchcock - he manages to star in a film which is set entirely in a lifeboat.

4.  Spider-man & Itsy Bitsy Spider theme 

I know this one is quite obviously but I love it anyway!  When electro catches his spider in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 he plays out Itsy Bitsy Spider with the power grid.


5. James Bond in Star Wars 

This one I didn't know until after the movie, so now I need to watch it again (I know, I've only watched it once!) to catch Daniel Craig as Stormtrooper 007.

6. Teen Wolf use Hill Valley Hospital

In the TV series Teen Wolf (yep, taken from the film) in season 5, the hospital is evacuated and patients are moved to Hill Valley Hospital.  Nice touch for Back to the Future fans.

7.  Harry Potter's Marauder's Map getting sexy!

The newest one I've seen is the sex scene on the Marauder map, yeah you read that right!    This clip is filmed at the end of Harry Potter and the Prison of Azkaban!!  Who knew!!

Soo didn't know about the Easter Egg on the #marauders map in #HarryPotter 😂😂😂

  1. I've heard of the concept of Easter Eggs but never spotted any. Loved reading your post. Those footprints are funny but rather naughty in a kids film. And I've just zoomed on your Indiana Jones shot and see C3P0 is with R2D2.

  2. these are excellent. i like the reference to the "40 year old virgin mary" in Evan Almighty as the same actor played in the 40 year old virgin film. I will be looking out for these in future! x
