Disney Facts You Haven’t Fully Processed, Part 2
Have you ever had the experience of watching your favorite Disney movie for approximately the billionth time, when suddenly, something vaguely mind-blowing about it occurs to you? We have, and today, we’re continuing our series of Disney facts you haven’t fully processed. Some of these you’ve probably already thought of (we’re picturing you fast asleep in bed, and then bolting upright as you grab your face in disbelief over the sudden clarity washing over you), and some of these might even be news to you. Either way, prepare to appreciate even more deeply the vastly complex web of subtext that dominates Disney movies:
Hans Christian Andersen wrote “The Snow Queen,” the story that inspired
sound out his name: Hans, Kristoff, Anna, Sven.
WALL·E’s name recalls someone you may have heard of: a one Walter Elias Disney.
, everyone acknowledges that the elephant graveyard is a thing… which means that either the elephants hold funerals there, or they just head over to that general area when they get really old. Either way: odd.
Tiana works a night shift at Cal’s and then a day shift at Duke’s, then bakes a zillion beignets for Charlotte. She was probably awake for twenty-four straight hours before she kissed Naveen and turned into a frog. That’s some commitment.
Flounder somehow managed to carry a giant statue of Prince Eric over to Ariel’s grotto and through the tiny entrance. We’re not entirely sure how… but at least Ariel appreciated it.
Rapunzel made it all the way from her tower to the kingdom with no shoes, after having never been outside before. Think of all the pebbles! What a trooper.
, the junk stashed in the West Wing is probably the castle’s furniture from before the enchantment. After all the occupants turned into enchanted objects, they would have had doubles of everything. Moving it all up there must have been awkward.
Rubber + springs + vim + vigor = Tigger. As in, if we combined all those ingredients we could have this cuddly fella, or at least, we could if he didn’t happen to be the only one.
, Anna and Elsa’s parents were on their way to a wedding (perhaps Flynn and Rapunzel’s, considering they came to Elsa’s coronation) when their ship sank at sea… but they didn’t drown. They washed up on a deserted island, built a treehouse, and gave birth to a baby boy…
Editor’s note: We included this Frozen/Tarzan theory in the spirit of good old fashioned debate, so we’re glad to see you’re discussing it! Chris Buck has hinted at the idea, but no, it’s not official… or is it? (No, it’s not. We were just trying to be mysterious.)
