    Disney has always brought amazing fairy tales and story to theatres and our homes alike. As children and adults, we get different messages from the classic films. Disney has planted great hidden and secret messages throughout their films that surely kids won’t get. Parents can watch their movies and see a deeper meaning than youngins can. The long list of incredible classics such as, “Snow White,” “Cinderella,” “Jungle Book,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “The Little Mermaid,” “The Beauty and the Beast,” and “Bambi” all have secret messages throughout the stories.
    What does “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” and “Moana” have in common messages about who we are? Is “Frozen” keeping Elsa from revealing her true self? What is the political message in “The Incredibles” and “Toy Story 2”? The directors of “Coco” share their secrets from the film, while “101 Dalmatians” teaches parents a simple lesson about pets. “The BFG” has a secret personal connection to Roald Dahl and “Lilo and Stitch” has a sad secret revolving around a peanut butter sandwich and Pudge the fish. “Hercules” may be avoiding a deep issue in Greek Mythology and “Tangled” has a secret plot point that makes Gothel’s death impossible! As for “Finding Nemo,” “Aladdin,” “The Lion King,” “Aladdin and the King of Thieves,” and “Zootopia.”
    Watch this video as we reveal all the secret messages in Walt Disney’s films that kids won’t get! See how many you may have picked up and new ones to look for on your next watch! Let’s fly off on our magic carpet and begin!

    If anyone has ever watched the animated movie 'the book of life' it was made before coco and they are almost exactly the same storyline. Except one has the main character as a kid, the other is adults and 'the book of life' is based around aceptance and love when coco is more around only acceptance

    I thought the message in frozen was that true love does not exist only in couples.
    True love can come from family too.

    The message disney intended in frozen was family love is always strong

    There is a strong argument to be made that the "fairy godmother" in Cinderella is a creation of Cinderella's strength, resilience, and optimistic escapism; suggesting her "makeover" is not external, but rather internal - it is not because she has a pretty dress and carriage that she enchants the prince, but rather her self-confidence and overall good nature which she feel free to express - the message of being true to one's self and all things are possible.

    Marrage now a days leads to work eat sleep no romance couples living together in a house but not being together. from the wedding to the honeymoon everything is planed from now on. well everything becomes his and hers towel, his and hers jobs, his and hers hobbies, his and hers space, his and hers friends, his and hers schedules, and you suburbians devote your life to this obediant world of gotta in other words you show in words and in action sorry no time for love and spending time with you or others because gotta go to work, gotta do my job, gotta go to socker practice, gotta make dinner, gotta pick up dry cleaning, gotta do the grocery shopping, gotta get the laundry done, gotta follow the schedules, gotta keep busy, gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta gotta. It really is sad arguments can lead to separations because there use to be passion unconditional love now it is gone because things change. and if your overly sensitive you'll be crying and wondering why did this have to happen to me.

    Nemo means Nobody in Latin. So Finding Nemo could be Finding Nobody. That's something to think about with this theory.

  • Nuraini Arsad

    I'm not even an arts major and I still understood the emotional intention of these movies properly. The primary audience are kids WITH their parents, so the primary relationships in most Disney movies are actually about the parent-child dynamic. That's why these movies are so appealing to every parent-child combo, why they do so well, and why children who grew up become parents show them to their own children in turn. That's why even popular competing franchises whose stories miss this focus, don't have anywhere near the staying power.
    The early fairy tales are drawn from Grimm, from a place and time where the basic emotional message is, here's what happens to you, if you lose the protection of your parents. "Step-parents won't love you the same." Probably it's to tell children to mind their parents... The next ones are for parents - Sleeping Beauty will hit parents in the feels in the sense that you can't protect your kids from some things in life, even if you knew it in advance. Ariel is about the unintended consequences of over-protective parenting in the mistaken intention to protect them from harm in life. Later movies cover additional things like children maturing to take over the positions of responsibility their parents held, or taking their place directly to spare them, or helping to change their minds about issues, or (the latest ones, and probably reflecting the times) dealing with parental failures positively. Sure, there are romantic plotlines in the earlier movies, but those do not instigate the plot, and only sometimes advance it. Hence, the movies are not about them. They're there, because it is a very common part of life and maturation.
    The fact that most commentators fixate on that only tells us about their limited worldview, and I hope Disney makes a movie to explore what sort of parent-child dynamic had produced this fixation with reducing all human relationships to sexual ones.

    Cinderella was going to a ball and her dress was in pieces. Of course she needed a new "makeover". It's not about that you have to change yourself and be better that way. She only got a new dress and got her hair done plus the glass slippers so that she could go to the ball

    The tangled movie one gothle died because of how old she would have been she was around like 200 years old or something and she died while rapunzel was crying then eventually she got healed so what I'm thinking is that she died while the power was just going to her tears. Idk all. Know is that gothle did from old age

  • Sara Leveton
    Sara Leveton 28 days ago

    With Rapunzel, I always thought that her hair and tears were both magical. If you brush her hair, it heals you, and if she cries on you you are healed. The Witch never had Rapunzel cry on her, so she died.

    Technicly the tangled one is not true, because she uses the hair for not ageing so when the hair is cut she loses her youthfulness it makes sense.

    I went and watched the balcony scene, it's aladdin saying "good kitty! Now take off, go!" To Raja, since he didn't feel like being the felines second dinner. I'm sorry, but maybe listen closer and watch the whole scene. Also, don't edit the sound, it was choppier and warped in this video.

    Snow white also was the embodiment of cocaine.....the 7 dwarfs were the 7 stages of cocaine addiction....in zootopia, there is one Mic that has a pot leaf when interviewing Judy, it's supposed to be a carrot, but, the colors are so close together, its hard to see anything but green....and the lion king, it was also supposed to tell people if we loose someone, no matter how close they were to us, we still have responsibilities....and must own them.......

    the quasimodo one doesnt make too much sense, in the original book esmeralda is hung after being framed for feebas 's(sp?) murder by frollo. but in the movie she ended up with feebas because hes the only one of her three suitors who sees her as a person, frollo sees her as a demonic seductress and quasimodo sees her as an angel who can do no wrong, but feebas recognises her free spirit
