    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.”

    Just because Elsa didn't fall in love with a guy, it doesn't mean she's lesbian. True, she could be, but saying 'I love you' to her sister is just family love. I'm not saying that there's anything wrong with it if she *is* lesbian, but I'm just saying that she could be any sexuality, and to not just assume it because of one 'I love you' with a family member.

    1) Elsa is NOT confirmed gay, it was just talked about as a possibility
    2) People don’t want Elsa to be gay because she loves her sister. That’s a normal thing. People want her to be gay because she wasn’t set up with some dude so hey look there’s a possibility for Disney to make _one_ of their main characters not straight

    No strong handsome prince does not = a lesbian princess. Give it a rest.
    Also, Quasimodo was not friend-zoned because he was a nice guy who finished last. He was a deformed hunchback and at the end of the day, you can not force a person to romantically love you just because you love them. But romance is not the best and only love. He instead earned the respect of the city people and was seen as a human. This whole "win the girl, you deserve her" is sexiest; women are not objects that exist solely for male acquisition. P.S note Quasi grew as a person and accepted it, he didn't waste his time pouting over the free-will of others to love who they love. RESPECT

    1. I believe the more important hidden message in Nemo is always listen to ur parents
    2. Coco does y’all about achieving one’s dream regardless of family, but in the end, it changes to being one should never disregard family, and dreams are far less important than family

    Um. Okay, first off. THBON was not supposed to be romantic. In the original story, Quasimodo never saw Esmeralda as a love interest, but a mutual friend that was not accepted into society because of their appearance in that era. Because Quasimodo was a hunchback, and because Esmeralda was a gypsy, they were both seen as outcast, a monster and a witch. But both had a heart of gold and were nothing like they were portrayed as. The whole point of the movie was to show that diversity was accepted and appearance does not define who someone is as a person.

    I personally think the message for Hunchback Of Notre Dame is to accept deformity & disability. Even though Quasi was unlucky enough to be deformed, he's still human inside. In our society today we often turn away from outcasts that need our help just because of their appearance, condition or disability. A deformed person might look hideous on the outside but on the inside he can be just like quasi, just longing to be accepted into the world and live a normal life

  • thatoneundertalefan1123

    Okay, well, for the rapunzel one, it wasnt that her hair lost the power, it was because mother gothel was touching the hair as it was losing her power, in the beginning, when she was being kidnapped, mother gothel thought she just needed to cut a piece of hair off, but she healed herself before cutting the hair, but after she cut the piece of hair she w as s touching, she aged back to a old women again, TL;DR it wasnt because her hair lost power, i te was because she was touching the hair as it was losung power

    hidden meaning in lion king: Scar wasn't actually that bad. it was the fact his brother was favored over him, most likely making him more of the runt. He got less food, less love, and just less of everything. So why aren't we rooting for him? well, his abusive past still doesn't justify what he had done, but I certainly take pity on him. (No I have not watched any of the new lion king series, I feel like those were made to cushion the actual meaning on kids. and while I stand by that I do not personally enjoy watching it)

    someone else posited this and i'm just echoing it but a lot of disney films have elitist messages like the incredibles and the lion king, it is not enough to be smart and ambitious in reaching for the things you want, in fact both scar and syndrom are demonized for these traits. only chosen people with inborn rights and abilities deserve good things in life, in the incredibles that's the supers in the lion king that's mufasa and simba. you are either born special or you're nothing. even tiana couldn't get a real prince until she attains the status of princess
