9 Bonkers Disney Fan Theories That Will Keep You Awake Tonight0 Comments

Disney movies are mysterious, haunting beasts. On the one hand, they’re incredibly simple because they’re filled with linear plots about princesses and evil witches with tentacles. On the other hand, the fairly straightforward nature of these films makes it easy to dream up metaphors and hidden meanings—even if they aren’t intended. Internet dwellers have made the latter a sport by spending hours crafting insane theories about Disney flicks that have blown minds and ruined childhoods. Some could actually be true; others, not so much—but that doesn’t make them any less interesting to read. These nine theories are particularly crazy.

All of Ariel’s sisters have different mothers.

The sleuths who run TheJongasm YouTube channel think King Triton got seven different mermaids pregnant in order to extend the length of his bloodline. This would explain why his daughters look absolutely nothing alike. And get this: These peeps also think Ariel is the favorite daughter because she is the only biological child of Triton’s current queen (who isn’t in the film). You thought Amy Poehler and Tina Fey had baby mama drama

Jafar is actually the hero in Aladdin.

The people behind ChannelFrederator make a pretty convincing case for why Jafar is actually the good guy in Aladdin. According to them, Jafar is just a concerned citizen who fears Agrabah is on the brink of economic collapse because of the Sultan’s careless spending. (He did buy Jasmine an actual tiger, after all.) Enraged by Agabah’s disparity—people are literally starving while the royals have buffets every night—Jafar sets out to become Sultan and save the city. This is why he wants to marry Jasmine, not because he is some creep. The ChannelFrederator staff members also assert that Aladdin is, in fact, the bad guy—a lazy, self-proclaimed con man who has no problem stealing from merchants or lying to women. Did your mind just explode?

The evil queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Mother Gothel in Tangled are the same person.

The similarities are there. Both women are obsessed with beauty and are willing to exploit young girls to maintain it. Plus, look at them: They’re practically identical, both in their raven-haired stage and withering-away stage. But the biggest smoking gun is Mother Gothel’s dagger in a box. It looks an awful lot like the dagger the Evil Queen gives the Huntsman, eh? #Twinz

Carl dies at the beginning of Up.

Grab a tissue. An old Reddit post theorizes that Carl died right after the court told him he needed to leave his home in Up. According to this theory, Russell is actually Carl’s guardian angel of sorts who helps him cross over to the afterlife. All of that talk about Russell needing his “Assisting the Elderly” badge to become a “Senior Wilderness Explorer” is just a metaphor for an angel trying to earn his wings. Are you sobbing yet?

The prince in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is actually Death personified.

A Reddit member named Scherazade is about to destroy your happy, go-lucky childhood. According to him/her, Snow White’s prince isn’t a prince at all, but Death—yes, with a capital D—coming to escort her to the afterlife. And the evidence is convincing too. Scherazade thinks the prince doesn’t actually wake Snow White with a kiss. Instead, that kiss symbolizes Death taking her to the next realm. The white horses that she and the prince ride are apparently Biblical metaphors for death found in Revelation 6:8 (the “pale horse.”) Also, why would Snow White say goodbye to the dwarfs like she was never going to see them again? Was it because she was leaving for Heaven and would actually never see them again? Spooky stuff.

Cinderella appears in Frozen too.

Do you see the girl in the blue-purple dress in the back of this photo? One Reddit user thinks she is Cinderella. “The woman is wearing a blue dress (same color as Cinderella’s blue dress), and the man is wearing tan pants and a blue top,” the user wrote. “The top is of the same style as the top worn by Prince Charming (shoulder epaulets, sash, belt).” Damn you, Easter eggs!

Jane from Tarzan is Belle and the Beast’s granddaughter.

A popular DisneyTheory.com entry points out that not only do Jane and Belle look alike, but Jane understands Tarzan like Belle understands the Beast. Plus, they all have the same taste in china, apparently.

Boo from Monsters, Inc. is the witch in Brave.

How is this possible? ~Time travel~! In his infamous Pixar theory, Jon Negroni muses that Boo became obsessed with her friend Sully and the futuristic animals in Monsters, Inc. after leaving them, so she used doors to travel in time and find them. She travels all the way back to the Brave period, becomes a witch, and cultivates enough door magic to search for Sully through different time periods. His evidence? A drawing of Sully in Brave.

High School Musical and The Purge exist in the same universe.

Yes, you read that correctly. Tumblr user SkyWasTheRobot hypothesizes that the Broadway-belting cherubs in HSM live in the same world as The Purge, a film series where all crime (including murder) is legal for one day a year. How else can you explain why nothing happened when the basketball team trashed the cafeteria (HSM) or how Lava Springs didn’t get shut the hell down (HSM 2)? And don’t even get us started on the straight-up forgery Ms. Darbus committed when she applied to Juilliard on behalf of Troy. In this world, crimes truly have no consequence—just like Purge night (with more choreography, of course).
