So everyone always has a theory, a “what if?”. It’s time to get out your tin foil hats as we look into the fan film theories that just mind flip your world upside down. Here are 5 of the most intricate theories that could change everything you think you know about your favorites movies.
The Pixar Theory
The Pixar Theory, as explained Jon Negroni, is a famous one where he goes on to explain how every Pixar Movie is connected. All character in Pixar films live in the same universe if you really think about it. Boo, for example, is the witch in Brave. This would at least explain the carving of Sully and the Pizza Planet Truck in that movie. With all these easter eggs in all the Pixar movies linking each other in ways we can only guess at it might be easier to check out the video explanation here.
Mad Max is one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
Both Reddit users Zephyrbal and EldarCorsair came up with a theory that Max is the embodiment of one of the Four Horsemen. If you think about it, it would explain a few things – like how we have so many movies spanning the time line for Mad Max and he basically does not age.
Max is a character or agent of change. He changes his surrounding environment, regardless if he wants to. He also at time feels like he has super powers as he is unreasonably durable, has a specialized set of skills for mayhem, and the same “steed” or car in most of the movies. He even leaves death in his wake in all the movies as he remembers the dead that he could not save. So yeah, in a way, I would say he represents Death.
Jar Jar Binks is a Sith Lord
Jar Jar Binks, the foolish annoying idiot character that represents some of the worst racial stereotyping to arise from Hollywood, yet if you review the movie, how is he able to survive so many intense battles and rise to power? As Vincent H. Valentine walks us through his Youtube video, the evidence can be pretty damning that Jar Jar Binks is more than he seems.
George Lucas is also known for using unimportant and annoying characters in his movies that turn out to be grand masters of something – Yoda anyone? Shame that the character was so annoying that it angered fans and made Lucas ditch the character and write in the oddly placed Count Dooku.
Deckard is a Replicant
Blade Runner, a classic film with ties to many series and franchises. It is even getting a second movie which might actually answer some of the questions regarding this theory. Deckard is a replicant, yet Harrison Ford claims that he was playing a human character. Even the video above has Ridley Scott saying that Deckard is a replicant in a 2002 interview. Heck, the original screenwriter Hampton Francher and the author of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (the Philip K. Dick novel the movie was based on) have their own thoughts on the matter. All we know is if the deleted unicorn scenes were to be added. I would say without a doubt that Deckard is a replicant. So question becomes which release of the film is cannon?
Little Mermaid, Tangled and Frozen
Matthew Patrick or MatPat on his The Film Theorist Youtube channel has a theory that many Disney films occur in the same universe, much like Pixars. He even goes on further to state that Elsa and Anna aren’t sisters by birth. His arguments are pretty sound and is worth a watch. We also have other links as stated in the John Boone E Online article that show that there might be connection between Frozen and The Little Mermaid with the queen and king’s ship that was lost at sea. This theory suggests three different animations linked together. Well if you want to make it four, there is even a theory that the queen and king didn’t die and gave birth to Tarzan. Have fun with that one.
