This Character Has Been Hiding In Every Disney Movie Since 1995

He’s been there this whole time. Did you ever notice?

Meet Hank, the septopus, who’s been making appearances in every Disney movie since 1995.

Meet Hank From Finding Dori


Oh My Disney reported that this secret was so well kept that there are people internally who didn’t even know about Hank’s appearances. Finding Dory director Andrew Stanton admitted:

“Hank started off as a bit of an inside joke between those of us who were here at Pixar in the very beginning, but since then, finding a place for him in our films has become part of our culture. And I’m glad we finally get to introduce him properly to fans.”

“Pixar is known for the hidden gems that appear in its feature films, including the Luxo Ball, the Pizza Planet Truck and A113, which is a nod to the animation classroom at CalArts, where several filmmakers attended. But the octopus—who’s actually a “septopus,” as he’s missing a tentacle—has remained a secret for two decades. ”

Have you seen him?

P.S. LOL Disney! April Fools!

    Hello people, did you not read the whole article or watch the video? It was a JOKE.

    Every Pixar movie. The headline shouldn’t be every Disney movie.
    All Pixar movies are Disney but not all Disney movies are Pixar.
    Hank is in every Pixar movie.

    He is not in Tangled, Princess and the Frog, Frozen, etc…

    It was an ad for finding dory // joke about all of the crazy stuff people make up about these movies, taking one small, neat idea and running so far with it it becomes insane.
    I think it’s effective and adorable… Not that I need advertising to line up for the next Disney movie…. 😀

    No, this is fabricated. Geez, what people will do to get “likes” and build their page. SHUT IT DOWN!

      You apparently didn’t watch the video, so you don’t get the joke.

    Mmkay. He’s not in any of those movies. He’s not secretly hidden.

    • DreamTripper 04/06/2016 at 11:57 pm

      You also apparently didn’t watch the video, so don’t get the joke.

    Is he also the squid in Surfs Up?I have noticed him when he is under the arm of the Zoey DE Channel character, as she talks to Shia Lebeufs character. Sorry I can’t remember the names right now.
    Hanks facial expressions are hilarious!
