    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.”

    I think it’s great that Disney is starting to do more Racial and I guess maybe lgbtq films because then kids can understand that when u grow up, it doesn’t matter who you love or your race

    Ok. Elsa is not gay. The message was that no one could love you as much as your family does. That gay assumption implies incest and I don't think Disney was trying to promote incest you sickos.

    Serioulsy? The Aladin thing was debunked years ago when one of the people at Disney confirmed that the line in fact read, "good kitty, good, just leave 'im alone,"
    meaning that the genie was trying to make Raja leave Aladin alone. I thought everyone knew that.

    I feel like just because Elsa didn’t fall in love with a man, people assume that because she didn’t get in a relationship with a guy in frozen, it’s OBVIOUS that she’s lesbian. I’m not hating on the fact that she might be lesbian, I totally support LGBT (in fact my bestfriend who’s a girl has a girlfriend) I just feel like not everyone needs a love interest.

    Beauty and the Beast is NOT about Stockholm Syndrome. It was a fairy tale written by a woman (Gabrielle-Suzanne de Villeneuve) who was trying to promote the idea of greater equality in marriage (btw, her version is MUCH more adult-themed.) It was later re-written by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont, who adapted it for children (particularly young girls of the upper classes) to prepare them for the all-too-common arranged marriage. And don't even get me started on Hunchback....

    “If you sell your soul you better be prepared to murder the person who you sold it to”....
    I think the message is more like “DONT SELL YOUR SOUL IN THE FIRST PLACE”

    • Kristi Holly
      Kristi Holly 12 days ago

      Ariel and Ursula had a deal. And although Ursula played dirty, she didn’t violate the deal. However, once Ursula owned Ariel’s soul, she then traded her for king Triton’s soul. Meaning she no longer owned Ariel. Meaning Ariel was no longer under the contract. So her soul was no longer sold to Ursula.
      ‘Now, listen. THIS is important’ (see what I did there) ARIEL DIDNT MURDER HER. Eric killed her because she was trying to kill Ariel. Which saved the Merkingdom (and probably Eric’s kingdom) along with the merfolk Ursula had already bought(? that’s a weird way to put it). So selling her soul and murdering Ursula were not directly related.
      Trust me, The Little Mermaid is my most watched movie of all time.

  • Kristi Holly

    I’m pretty sure that the message in frozen is that “there is more than one type of love” and “get to know someone before you make any long term commitments with them”...

    Omg for the zillionth time-Love is an Open Door had nothing to do at all with Elsa. Elsa came into her powers-what the hell is so wrong with a strong single woman to rule as Queen? Why make her a lesbian it literally has NO relevance to the film or the story line. The Little Mermaid wasn’t about a scam deal but what women are willing to do for “love”, in this case Ariel not only loses her voice she also has her tail ripped in half so she could walk on legs and it caused her terribly pain. Disney has ruined romantic relationships with unhealthy expectations...and that’s why you read Brothers Grimm to check reality LOL

    Beauty and the Beast is not Stockholm syndrome. Wanna know what is..? The hunchback of Notre Dame. Belle hates him at first but gets to know him because he protected her and he lets her go because he cares for her. While Quasimodo is what I’d say as abused by Frollo and is convinced it is all for good.

    lions are animals found in prides and they will only have one adult male that fathers the cubs any other males will be young males that are not sexually mature yet, these prides will have multipel females in them. so if mufasa is the mature male that leads the pride and nalas mom and simbas mom are apart of that pride. meaning that simba and nala must have same dad which leads to them being half bother and sister and they have a cub together at end which is insest kind off.

    Geez people are really reaching... Elsa isn't gay because she loves her sister, she lacks confidence and only finds it on her own as though loving herself for who she is. It's a message of acceptance even if you're not what the world says you should be. There was no story of romance for her because she needed to love her self before anyone else could. If someone wants to say she's gay fine, but don't try to say she's in love with her sister, she loves her sister deeply that doesn't mean she's incestuous and gay.

    I thought the message in finding Nemo was believing in your child with special needs. Nemo had the little fin and his dad constantly reminded him of it and made him fill inadequate. That's why he never let him go to school with the other fishes. Then we meet dory who has trouble remembering and she also surpasses her mental issue and become very helpful. Marlin is like the rest of the world belittling them both at one point in the movie.
