Guys, guys, guys, we have BIG news.

Tarzan from the movie, erm, Tarzan, might be the brother of Princess Elsa and Princess Anna from Disney's unstoppable, frosty money-maker, Frozen.

There have been rumours about this for agggges, but now Chris Buck who directed both Frozen and Tarzan has explained that he thinks everyone's favourite cartoon monkey-boy is related to princesses, Anna and Elsa.


The director reckons that parents of the girls from Frozen never really died, but were merely shipwrecked on an island, where they eventually did some sexy stuff on a boat, got pregnant, then were shipwrecked and gave birth to Tarzan.

Speaking to MTV, Chris explained the story he told Frozen's co-director, Jen Lee: “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."

Chris Buck added that he thinks if people wanted to believe everything is connected they should go for it, as "That's the spirit of Disney". It wouldn't be the first elaborate Disney fan theory to sweep the internet, there's one that suggests every Pixar film is in one long chronology and it'll blow your mind.

So what do you think? Are Tarzan and the Frozen's princesses related? The ladies are CGI, where as Mr. T is just a cartoon, does that matter? Are we being too pedantic?

Do you think Tarzan, Elsa and Anna are related?
