'Frozen' director theorizes Anna, Elsa and Tarzan are siblings

Me, Tarzan. You, wanna build snowman?

That's a question the popular jungle character might be asking "Frozen" princesses Elsa and Anna if they ever cross paths, as a co-director of the 2013 Disney blockbuster theorized this week that they're long-lost siblings.

(Spoilers for both movies ahead, so, if you were about to complain, "Let it Go.")

During Reddit's February 2014 Ask Me Anything session with some of the big names behind "Frozen," it was revealed that director Chris Buck believes Anna and Elsa's parents, the king and queen of Arendell, didn't die on the boat. "They got washed up on a shore in a jungle island," reads part of that post. "The queen gave birth to a baby boy. They build a treehouse. They get eaten by a leopard…."

Disney super-fans may recognize those plot points matching up with Disney's 1999 "Tarzan," which would make that lead character the little brother of Anna and Elsa.

Buck continued to explore his theory during a Sunday interview with MTV News.

"Of course Anna and Elsa's parents didn't die," he added. "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."

Would that make Jane royalty by marriage? (And are Tarzan and Jane even married?) So many questions.


In the meantime, Buck doesn't mind if fans of any of those movies don't want to buy into his theory.

"I say, whatever people want to believe, go for it," he told MTV News. "If you want to tie them all together, then do it."

This isn't the first theory to suggest fascinating relationships between Disney characters. Last February, a writer surmised that, in the "Toy Story" movies, the mom of toy owner Andy is actually Emily, the original owner of cowgirl Jessie.
