The Director Of "Frozen" Says Tarzan Is Anna And Elsa's Little Brother

"In my little head, Anna and Elsa's brother is Tarzan."

Now Chris Buck, the director of Frozen and Tarzan, has fueled fan theories by saying Anna and Elsa's parents never died, but were in fact shipwrecked on an island, where they gave birth to Tarzan.

At a special Disney film screening on Sunday, Buck recounted the story he told Frozen's co-director, Jen Lee:

I said, "Of course Anna and Elsa's parents didn't die. 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.
