There seems to be a never-ending supply of fan theories from Beauty and the Beast. Yet again we come across one that ties the nefarious nature of Gaston to one of the greatest Disney tragedies – the death of Bambi’s mom.
Disney sleuths noted that Gaston, a loud and proud hunter, was flexing his muscles in a scene with the head of a doe on the wall behind him. Take into account that there is a doe drinking water in the very first scene of the movie. Coincidence? We think not.
The Enchantress from Beauty and the Beast Hates Kids
Fans have pieced together the very strange course of events that led the story of the Beast. As we all know, the Enchantress cursed the Beast to remain in his form until his twenty-first birthday. Working backward, fans realized that the Enchantress set the curse upon the Beast when he was a whole eleven years old.
We are aware that kids can be obnoxious but transforming them into a Beast that is banished from society? A step too far. A simple timeout would be better in our opinion.
The Toy Story Hats
In Toy Story 2, Jessie (the Yodeling Cowgirl) is suffering from a traumatic episode as a result of having been abandoned by her previous owner Emily. Fans have noted that in the original Toy Story movie, Andy dons a hat identical to Jessie’s.
Leading them to believe that Jessie comes from the same era as the rest of the roundup gang of which Woody is comprised, and ultimately leading to the thought that Emily is Andy’s mom.
Lady Tremaine the Black Widow
Continuing in the vein of the wicked stepmother narrative, Cinderella’s stepmother might be the most notorious of them all. The movie Cinderella begins with the tragedy of her father mysteriously passing away to what is only pinned down to natural causes. Now take into account that Lady Tremaine already had previous marriages from which she had two other daughters.
Three marriages ending in the suspicious death of the husband? Fans can only conclude that this coincidence is due to Lady Tremaine murdering each husband and claiming the inheritance.
Maleficent’s Fertile Favor
In the opening of Sleeping Beauty, the narrator informs us that the king and queen had for “many years…longed for a child”. Their wish was eventually granted and the queen gave birth. Maleficent makes a very dramatic entrance during Aurora's christening, bemoaning her lack of an invitation.
Some fans believe the king and queen employed Maleficent’s magic to fall pregnant. Maleficent, feeling very indignant at the lack of invitation, condemns Aurora to die before her 16th birthday further implying she provided the life, she could take it.
