  • No movie universe has shaped young minds or found a place in kids' hearts like the decades

  • of Disney's animated adventures. So it's no surprise that fans have spent time and

  • energy trying to prove that every film connects to those around it, sometimes looking a bit

  • too closely at a random easter egg. With the surprise success of Disney's Frozen, fans

  • have come up with a theory that is out of this world, claiming another Disney hero is

  • a long lost sibling of the starring sisters. With Disney keeping quiet on any official

  • canon, the theories are all in the name of fun, and using a bit more imagination in between

  • releases. We've done our best to lay out the theories that workand the ones that

  • don't – in our first Docu Series exploring The Secret Family Relations Between Disney

  • Movie Princesses.

  • Frozen IN-Tangled

  • By now, every Disney fan knows where this theory starts: with a single split-second

  • cameo from two other Disney stars. But before we get to Queen Elsa's coronation, we'll

  • have to explain why the throne is empty in the first place. It's nothing new for a

  • Disney hero to be without their parents, so seeing the King and Queen of Arendelle leave

  • the picture was less than shocking. That doesn't make it any less tragic, with Anna and Elsa

  • bidding farewell as their parents head out to sea for a two week roundtrip journey.

  • The ship is lost at sea, leaving the girls without their parentsand Arendelle without

  • a monarch. After three years Elsa is old enough to claim the crown, and the entire kingdom

  • and visitors from far-off lands show up to celebrate. The doors are opened, and Anna

  • heads out to greet the gueststwo of which are instantly recognizable. Rapunzel and Flynn

  • Rider, the stars of Tangled are impossible to miss, thanks to their hairstyles and clothing.

  • It might seem like a tiny easter egg, but it got fans thinking: Frozen would have to

  • be set after the events of Tangled for the cameo to make senseso perhaps the two

  • movies are more connected than they seem

  • Fans have spun some wild theories, claiming Rapunzel and Elsa's mothers look alike because

  • they're sisters, married to the kings of two different kingdoms. One daughter is born

  • with the gift of healing thanks to a magical flower, while the other is born with control

  • of icy magic. It's impossible to actually prove the princess is there to see her cousin's

  • coronationbut Arendelle should have sent someone to celebrate Rapunzel's return home,

  • and wedding. Like, say, the King and Queen?

  • Unfortunately, Frozen never explains where the Royal Couple is headed, or whyonly

  • that their ship sinks on the way. But using the countries that the fictional kingdoms

  • of Frozen and Tangled were based on takes this theory even farther. Disney's animators

  • took a trip to Norway to help create the mountainy kingdom of Arendelle, and Rapunzel's home

  • of Corona is likely inspired by 18th Century Germany, the same place the Brothers Grimm

  • wrote their famous version of the story. That would put the two films on opposite sides

  • of the North Seawith the ship being sunk somewhere off the coast of Denmark. Why does

  • that matter?

  • Well, no Disney movie is explicitly set in a Danish kingdom, but one of the studio's

  • most beloved classics was written by a Danish citizen – a fact that takes this theory

  • into time-bending, shared universe territory.

  • The Little Mermaid

  • The writer in question is Hans Christian Andersen, whose version of The Little Mermaid was a

  • bit darker than Disney's version. But some have claimed that the movie actually ties

  • into Frozen directly, with the shipwreck explored by Ariel in the opening scenes the exact ship

  • that Elsa's parents died on. The theory can lose some steam with that twist, since

  • it's… a bit of a reach. But the biggest problem is the climate: Andersen also wrote

  • The Snow Queen,” which Frozen was based on. And that's a better fit for the North

  • Sea than a story filled with tropical fish and sandy beaches.

  • But don't worry, conspiracy fans, the shipwreck in The Little Mermaid can still come from

  • Arendelleit's just nowhere near Denmark, or the North Sea. When the directors of Frozen

  • were asked point blank about Elsa's parents' destination on Reddit, they gave direct answers.

  • Jennifer Lee said it was a wedding, with Chris Buck clarifying that the King and Queen didn't

  • die on the ship at all. In fact, it didn't even sink. The ship, and the couple, survived

  • weeks, possibly even months lost at seauntil they washed up on a jungle shore, and

  • had to build a home next to a family of gorillas.

  • Tarzan

  • That's right, according to Buck, the King and Queen of Arendelle were the shipwrecked

  • parents of the boy who would grow up to be Tarzan. They also learned the lesson that

  • traveling at sea when you don't know you've got a baby on the way isn't wise:

  • 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.” (Reddit)

  • So the storm didn't sink the ship, it just tossed it out into the Atlantic, to travel

  • south to Africa before bursting into flames and sinkingsomething that happens pretty

  • often in Disney's universe. That might be a hard trip to believe, but in a world of

  • ape men and magical attacks, a storm being really powerful is actually easy to believe.

  • Just to be clear, weird family relations in the Tarzan story aren't anything new, either.

  • In the original version of the story, Tarzan's real name would have been John Clayton – a

  • cousin of the movie's villain. Frankly, we're all for a different explanation.

  • There are still a few problems with the theory, but it's what director Chris Buck believes

  • happenedand since he also directed Tarzan, he's kind of an authority on the subject.

  • It's still an unhappy ending for the King and Queen, but Elsa and Anna's brother finds

  • a family and happiness of his own. Even if the details don't match up, it's what

  • the director believes is the true story.

  • As for the wrecked ship?

  • For those who love the idea of Ariel investigating it, who's to say it couldn't drift a bit

  • farther before sinking?

  • After all, there's another hint that these locations aren't as far apart as you might

  • think.

  • The Cinderella Factor

  • To prove that these Disney kings, queen, princes and princesses really do share the same social

  • circles, fans can watch when Prince Eric is almost duped into marrying the wrong woman

  • in The Little Mermaid. A split second shot shows the King and Duke from Cinderella, having

  • traveled to see the Royal Wedding. And when the doors to Arendelle's castle are opened,

  • the first few frames feature a woman sharing more than a passing resemblance to Sleeping

  • Beauty's Princess Aurora AND The Princess and The Frog's Princess Tiana. With all

  • those details, it's hard to believe Elsa's parents WEREN'T headed to the wedding of

  • another Disney princess.

  • It isn't likely that Disney will ever confirm or deny any official connections, and in the

  • end, they don't really need to. Since the characters aren't likely to ever meet, it's

  • enough to know that in the mind that helped to create Tarzan and Frozen, Anna and Elsa's

  • long lost brother in a far away land was the King of the Jungle. The ship that got him

  • therewell, that's just for fans to do what Disney is all about: use their imagination.

  • To summarize everything, the theory claims that Elsa and Anna are actually the sisters

  • of Tarzan, since their parents lived long enough to deliver him as a baby to the gorillas

  • who raised him.

  • A part of their ship kept on drifting until it came to rest on the ocean floor, where

  • Ariel eventually explored it for trinkets. The rest would eb used to build a treehouse

  • She would marry Prince Eric not long after - a prince who was apparently close enough

  • to Cinderella's family to have her father the King, and his right hand man the Grand

  • Duke at the wedding.

  • Disney royalty apparently make a point of attending other royal weddings, and Frozen's

  • director confirms the King and Queen of Arendelle were headed to one when they disappeared.

  • It could have been Cinderella's wedding to Prince Charming, Aurora's wedding to Prince

  • Phillip, or even Tiana's wedding to Prince Naveen, since they're both shown arriving

  • for Elsa's coronation.

  • But if the Queen of Arendelle really was the sister of Rapunzel's mother, or they're just

  • neighboring queens, it's a safe bet they were headed to Rapunzel's wedding to Flynn Rider

  • when they disappeared. Not one to forget such a sacrifice, Rapunzel and Flynn made sure

  • to see Elsa's coronation in person.

  • It's not as complicated as it may sound, if fans realize that the characters may be familiar,

  • or even friendly, with stars of other classic movies. Which all lead to one big question:

  • are all Disney films part of the same shared universe?

  • They may never give a clear answer, so until then, let us know what YOU think!

No movie universe has shaped young minds or found a place in kids' hearts like the decades
