Disney. Everyone knows of them. If you don’t, then what even was your childhood? Yes, we all know of the animated movies for children that have been around since the early 1900s and have captivated the attention of every child, and even some adults, all around the world. Their movies, such as the Little Mermaid (1989), Frozen (2013), Cinderella (1950), Snow White (The first Disney princess movie, produced in 1938), and many more are innocent and enjoyable films. These movies seem straight forward enough, I mean why wouldn’t they be? They need to be easy for a child to follow. But what if they aren’t as straight forward as some people believe? There have been theories surrounding Disney movies for a while now and some are actually believable.
I’m gonna start off with a simple one. Tarzan is Anna and Elsa’s little brother. I know it seems farfetched, but hear me out. This theory states that The King and Queen (Anna and Elsa’s parents) are the parents that shipwrecked in the beginning of the movie Tarzan, AKA Tarzan’s parents. There is many ways to prove this theory wrong. For example, the parents look nothing alike, but some would blame that on the time gaps between production of both movies. Another fault in the theory is that the Queen wasn’t pregnant when she left for sea, but as some people know you don’t start showing for a while after you get impregnated and the movie never told us how long they were lost before finding the place in Tarzan. Like I said farfetched, but believable.
The next theory is about Toy Story. The theory begins with a scene in Toy Story 2 where we see meet a new toy, Jessie. We even get a sad flashback of Jessie’s old owner, Emily. A theory is that Andy’s mom is Emily, Jessie’s old owner. The hat that Andy wears in the first Toy Story movie helps support the theory. The hat he wears is visibly different from his cowboy, Woody’s hat. The hat Woody wears is just brown, while Andy wears a red hat, coincidentally it’s the same one that Jessie wears, but why would that happen? Jessie wasn’t introduced until the second movie. Maybe the hat used to belong to Andy’s mother and when she had him she passed it down to him. Not to mention her name is never mentioned in any of the movies, so it is entirely possible.
The last theory is a bit more believable and also once again about Frozen. Rapunzel from Tangled is Anna and Elsa’s cousin. This theory arose soon after the movie, Frozen, was released. During the song ‘For the First Time in Forever’ as Anna is greeting the people before the coronation, you can catch a glimpse of post haircut Rapunzel and Flynn heading towards the castle. It may just be another Disney Easter Egg, but if you look at the mother from Rapunzel and the mother from Frozen it isn’t hard to believe that they were sisters. The theory is that Anna and Elsa’s parents were on their way to Rapunzel and Flynn’s wedding when their shipped crashed, “Frozen writer and director Jennifer Lee has actually confirmed in a Reddit AMA that Elsa’s parents were on their way to a wedding.” So even though it wasn’t directly stated in the movie or in interviews, it was never technically denied either.
Those are just a few Disney conspiracy theories. If you wanted me to explain them all then this would be a really long story and it would take you forever to read. In the end none of these theories are confirmed. They are mostly created for your enjoyment.
