Tarzan-Frozen theory confirmed by the director Chris Buck [Disney]
Chris Buck directed both Disney animated features and is fully aware of the fan theory that Tarzan is the long-lost brother of the Frozen sisters.
If you’re unfamiliar, basically the theory goes that Anna and Elsa’s parents who were lost at sea didn’t die straight away.
They are shipwrecked off the coast of Africa and set up home in the jungle where their mother gives birth to a son. However, the parents are killed by a leopard, leaving the baby boy to be raised by gorillas.
Speaking to MTV, Buck confirmed this theory, though it’s not the official Disney line.

“Of course Anna and Elsa’s parents didn’t die,'” he explained. “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,’ Buck said.

It’s certainly not the Disney world as Tarzan’s parents were from England and Anna and Elsa’s parents were from the fake Scandinavian kingdom of Arendelle.
However, Buck says you can make connections between the films wherever you like because that’s the “Disney spirit.”
And this isn’t the first good news Disney fans have had recently.
