We all know that Disney likes to give us connections to their other films, and when watching them we like to look to for them, so today at Screen Rant, we’re taking a look at ten Disney Princess connections that you wouldn’t expect.
We take a look at how Disney re-used idea’s that had been in the initial drafts of Snow White in Sleeping Beauty almost a decade later, such as the prince having to face off against the witch. And on the subject of Snow White, we take a look at the theory that Tangled’s Mother Gothel is actually the Evil Queen.
Disney also like connecting their films via storybooks, with both Beauty and the Beast and The Princess and the Frog using storybooks to show what film was coming next, which were Aladdin and Tangled, and how Tangled features a few past gems in the books on the floor.
As well as books, other objects are used to make connections. The Magic Carpet from Aladdin is found in a few other films, including The Princess and the Frog, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Moana. Also, had you ever noticed that the only princesses to wear gloves are those who married into royalty.
We also get into the big one, about how Rapunzel, Elsa and Anna are actually cousins, and about how their parents died on the way to Rapunzel and Flynn’s wedding, and we extend it a little into how the shipwreck explored by Ariel, was actually that of their parents.
