Director Of ‘Frozen’ Says Anna & Elsa Have A Secret Little Brother!
So I stumbled across this theory a while ago and immediately hoped it was true..
Elsa and Anna are arguably Disney’s most loved pair of sisters, but a recent revelation from Frozen director Chris Buck considers the possibility that they have another sibling. 🙂
In a recent interview with MTV News, Buck said he sees Tarzan as Anna and Elsa’s brother! Woooo! – Knew it! 🙂
WHAAAAAAA???? I know it sounds crazy, and the movies definitely AREN’T linked in the official Disney canon, but Buck (who also directed Tarzan) has a pretty compelling theory.
According to Buck, Anna and Elsa’s parents didn’t actually DIE on their voyage. Instead they were merely shipwrecked on an uncharted jungle island.
Here’s how Buck explained the story he told Frozen‘s co-director, Jen Lee:
I said, “Of course Anna and Elsa’s parents didn’t die. 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 in my little head, Anna and Elsa’s brother is Tarzan — but on the other side of that island are surfing penguins, to tie in a non-Disney movie, Surf’s Up. That’s my fun little world.
And this isn’t something he just decided recently. In Buck’s world, the Queen was always (probably) pregnant when she and the King of Arendelle departed on their trip.
In a Reddit AMA last year, Lee said Buck had told her Anna and Elsa’s parents never died, but “got washed up on a shore in a jungle island,” and that “the queen gave birth to a baby boy.”
Ahh does this mean family reunion is due…? 😀 plz plz plz!
