The Disney universe is one step closer to becoming Tarantino universe.
In a Reddit AMA last year, the creators of Frozen gave this answer to a question concerning Anna and Elsa's parents:
Where were the King and Queen planning to go when they lost their lives out at sea?
Jennifer: A wedding.
According to Chris, they didn't die on the boat. They got washed up on a shore in a jungle island. The queen gave birth to a baby boy. They build a treehouse. They get eaten by a leopard...
Kristen: They were going to Fantasy Island!! To fix the tensions in their marriage in a way only Ricardo Montalban.
This exploded the heads of many Disney fans, since that just happens to also be the backstory to Tarzan. Unfortunately, the creators never spoke on the matter again — that is, until Wednesday, when Chris Buck, one of the film's directors, clarified this backstory to MTV:
Explaining his theory, he also revealed a major detail that makes the whole theory come together. "I said, '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."
So it's true then, right? Well, yes and no. According to the interview:
Chris was quick to insist that these are just his theories and nothing is official, and everyone should continue coming up with their own.
So it's true if you want it to be. Hooray for self-deception!
