For most of us, Disney movies are nostalgic, reminding us of our childhoods and the cozy afternoons we spent surrounded by our loved ones. As we grow up, our perspective changes and we reevaluate some of the things in our lives.

So scroll down, upvote the shower thoughts that left an impression on you, and be sure to share with your friends. And let us know in the comments if you’ve had any peculiar or intriguing insights into Disney movies as well.

When you’re all good and done with this list, have a look through our previous posts about the most awesome things Disney employees have ever done, how Disney characters would look if they lived in the modern world, as well as Disney comics that might just ruin your childhood.

Imagine the depiction of the human race in an alien school book, based on his cartoons.

Among the slightly disturbing shower thoughts is the theory that because no human beings are shown on the Lion King, the film could be set during any era, like a future where humanity has gone extinct and had to become ruthless and cold-blooded cyborgs to survive. Which is both cool and terrifying at the same time.

Another insight is about how Beauty and the Beast would have to go on a monstrous shopping spree after everyone’s turned back into people (let’s just hope they get a discount at IKEA). Or how about the fact that ‘true love’s kiss’ probably means… well, you know... something that leads to princes and princesses being born 9 months later and new Disney movies being made 18 years after that.

Plus, Queen is not evil per se. Her country is thriving, there is no war and people do not riot against her. She just wants to eliminate the competition to the throne. Something common in middle ages Europe, where the story is, fictionaly, placed.

There are a lot of dark Disney movie theories floating about the internet. They’re interesting, however, they might ruin your favorite films, so read on at your own peril. Digital Spy writes how one fan theory (one that many of you may have already heard before) is that ‘Aladdin’ takes place in a post-apocalyptic future. All because Genie referred to 3rd-century fashion and mentioned that he’d been stuck in his lamp for 10,000 years. If so, what exactly happened to humanity for everything to change so much?

Another fan theory is that Carl from ‘Up’ (a film that was released by Disney, even if it was produced by Pixar) may have been dead all along, while the kid named Russel is supposedly an angel trying to earn its wings. A third theory is that Anna and Elsa’s parents from ‘Frozen’ weren’t lost at sea, but ended up stuck in the jungle, the mother eventually giving birth to a boy whom we grew to know as Tarzan. Do you think such fan theories have any merit to them? What do you think about the unexpected insights into Disney films? What’s your favorite Disney movie moment?

In the original story, the step sisters hacked off their own toes and heels to try and fit into those slippers. There's a lot messed up about this story, both the Disney version and it's predecessor.

it was originated from a folk story, and not one entirely made for kids solely. even so, the concept of censoring certain themes from children is only a recent trend.

Also Neptune was the brother of Zeus. Zeus was Hercules' father. Neptune was Aries's father. So Hercules and Ariel were cousins.

Meh, 16 pre 20th Century were legally adults in most countries. She was above and beyond old enough to sign a contract. The question more is, why as a WOMAN could she sign a contract in 1830's Denmark?

Paz Pino
Community Member

In the original story, when Ariel signs the contract, she not only loses her voice but her new feet cause her excruciating pain - like walking on shards of glass. In the end, she also loses the prince to another woman and she then kills herself (instead of killing him as witch suggests).

It probably wasn't a widespread problem because it takes a little extra magic to be able to sign a contract using ink and paper underwater.

Triton is not Neptune/ Poseidon. Maybe distant relatives. Also again, given the times, child brides were 100% legal and commonplace.

Peter Bear

Not really so uncommon even in human history. As recently as the Victorian era, age of consent and legal adulthood were at 12, at least in England and its possessions.

WhatEvenIsLife

I mean... who in the audience looked at that scene and thought "that is a totally legitimate, legally binding contract"? It was a deal with a sea witch. It wasn't like Ursula was going to take Ariel to court if she breached it. And Triton wouldn't have let her sign it if he knew it was happening, so...
