Just like any other much-loved film or TV series, Disney and Pixar are the subject of many fan theories.
In fact, more than we can count. Tumblr accounts, Reddit threads and websites are dedicated to them.
But fans have had all of their wishes granted (almost), as the Director of hit movie Frozen has not only spoken out on the subject, but actually confirmed one of the most widely-spread ideas.
In case you have absolutely no idea where this stems from, the idea is that most Disney movies exist together on a single timeline, with certain characters and storylines intertwining.
The theory in question involves Frozen’s Elsa and Anna. They’re RELATED to Tarzan. Word is that the Princesses parents didn’t die on their sunken boat, but instead washed up on nearby island and had a son.
Now things get even more interesting.
In an interview with MTV, Chris Buck, the Director of Frozen, has revealed his thinking behind the tale, which works to back-up the fan theory.
Want to know what he revealed? ‘Course you do: “Of course Anna and Elsa’s parents didn’t die,'” he continued. “Yes, there was a shipwreck, but they were at sea a little bit longer than we think they were because the mother was pregnant, and she gave birth on the boat, to a little boy. They get shipwrecked, and somehow they really washed way far away from the Scandinavian waters, and they end up in the jungle. They end up building a tree house and a leopard kills them, so their baby boy is raised by gorillas.”
Story sound familiar? IT SHOULD.
Chris finished: “In my little head, Anna and Elsa’s brother is Tarzan… That’s my fun little world.”
He did point out that it’s just what he believes, rather than it being an official Disney decision.
But he’s the Director. And he also co-Directed the Tarzan movie. So that’s ALL we need to know TBH.
He has an important message for Disney lovers (AKA us): “Whatever people want to believe, go for it.”
“That’s the spirit of Disney.”
