We have all heard the fan theory that explains how Frozen, Tangled and The Little Mermaid are all connected, but the director behind the frosty Disney blockbuster has blown this idea out of the water with an insane new theory.

The writers and directors of Frozen, Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, spoke out to the good people of Reddit to set the record straight.

While Lee confirmed that Elsa's parents were going to a wedding in Frozen, Buck coughed up some tantalizing details about what became of the couple...

Or rather, who they became...

Trust me, what they say is going to blow your mind.

You hear that?

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

You don't have to be a huge Disney obsessive to know what Buck is hinting at.

The King and Queen became Tarzan’s parents.

Could they also be Elsa and Anna's parents?
Could they also be Elsa and Anna's parents?

But, let's look at the evidence.

Instead of dying on the boat, as the original theory suggests, Elsa's parents could have been dramatically blown off course.

Which would mean Ariel didn't find the shipwreck off the coast of Denmark, as the original theory hypothesized. Instead the boat would have been more likely to sink in the Caribbean.

Which totally makes sense when you consider the Calypso music and Jamaican red crabs that inhabit The Little Mermaid universe...

He doesn't seem Scandinavian to me...

...Not to mention all of those tropical fish.

The long voyage would explain how there was time for Tarzan to be born during the trip.

Also, a King and Queen would undoubtedly take plenty of provisions with them, even on a short trip. This would allow them to survive for months on end on the high seas.

So, let's have a look at the parents themselves:

The hair colors might be different, but the facial structures are strikingly similar...

And most importantly, Chris Buck directed both [Frozen](movie:411685) and Tarzan

Surely, if anyone knows the truth it's this guy?

Are you guys convinced that Elsa and Tarzan are, in fact, brother and sister?


Which Frozen theory are you convinced by?
