Disney movies have entertained us and our children for generations but have you ever looked at them close enough? Throughout time fans have discovered hidden messages in Disney movies and connections that will surely blow your mind. Let’s take a look at five of these theories.

5 Disney Theories That Will Blow Your Mind

The Connection Between the Little Mermaid, Tangled and Frozen

Remember Flynn Ryder and Rapunzel’s wedding? It seems that Elsa and Anna’s parents left for that weeding and died at sea and their shipwreck is the one that Ariel was exploring in The Little Mermaid. Do you think this is just a crazy fan theory or could it be that Disney producers have left us small hints about a magical world which we missed until now?

Elsa and Anna’s Parents are Tarzan’s Parents

How crazy is that? When they were asked about the theory connecting The Little Mermaid, Tangled and Frozen, the producers of Frozen said that the parents did not die at sea, but managed to escape on an island, where they had a son but later got killed by a leopard. So if Elsa and Anna’s parents did not die in the shipwreck, and lived in the jungle, were they Tarzan’s parents? Fans have been torn between this theory and the one about them dying at sea and have a hard time deciding whether to trust their instincts or believe what the producers hinted. What do you think?

The Connection Between Monsters Inc. and Brave

One of the most complicated theories about Disney movies is the one created around the witch from Brave and Boo from Monsters Inc. Do you remember that Boo learned how to travel through doors? Well it seems that when she grew up, in an attempt of finding Sully she ends up traveling through doors in the same time period of Brave. You see now why every time the door closes, the witch disappears?

The Connection Between Snow White and Tangled

Remember the evil stepmother from Snow White? Fans have created a theory about her being the same person with Mother Gothel from Tangled. How crazy is that? Well, if you stop for a minute to think about it, not that crazy. Mother Gothel has a dagger in a box. Remember the dagger that the stepmother gave to the Huntsman in Snow White? Plus, they look very similar both in their young age as well as when they turn old and have the same beauty-related obsessions and a desire to stay forever young. Could this be another hint to a connected magical world in Disney movies or is it just a crazy theory made up by overly attached fans? Have another viewing of the movies and decide for yourself.

The Theory About the Plot of Up

Up is one of the most emotional and popular modern Disney movies out there, so there is no wonder that fans have turned it upside down in attempts to find out what hidden messages Disney might have used in it. But what they found was not a hidden message but clues indicating that the entire Up plot is imaginary. The theory suggests that Carl has passed away in his sleep before he had to leave for the retirement home and the rest of the plot and his adventure in search of Ellie is something that happens in his afterlife. How does this theory change the way you looked at the movie? Do you think it is a plausible one or again, just a crazy invention from zealous fans?

There have been a lot of discussions and in-depth analyzes about this theory and if you stop to think about it, there are more than just a few clues indicating that Carl has his adventure in the afterlife, such as what the house really represents - his attachment to the physical world, and the raising of the house could represent his transition from the physical to the spiritual world. You definitely need to see Up again and try to find the clues.


Disney movies present a lot of interest, and fans will always create theories about their characters and plots but as long as we don’t have official statements from the producers we will not know what is really true and what only happens in our imagination. And we think that people should not look for a definitive answer, Disney offers us a magical world and these theories make it even more magical for children and grown-ups from all over the world, so why ruin it with limitations? Anything is possible if you believe in magic!
