Eric and Ursula’s Wedding In The Little Mermaid Had Some Special Guests
We may be used to seeing different Pixar universes combined into one film, but when Disney does it, it’s not necessarily as expected. In The Little Mermaid, during Eric’s wedding Ursula, the sea witch, you’ll actually be able to spot a number of interesting guests from the Pixar world.
It’s probably obvious that we’re talking about the one and only King and Duke from Cinderella, who were apparently invited to the wedding.
Could Anakin Skywalker Be Jesus In Star Wars?
Many fans of Star Wars believe that the film was a commentary towards the story of Jesus. Anakin Skywalker, also known as “the chosen one”, often demonstrated some of the deadly sins throughout the film, including anger and pride, which contributed to the dark path he eventually took.
Luke, on the other hand, never loses faith in his father, and it’s his faith that results in Anakin redeeming himself, and even sacrificing his life for his son.
Scorese Hints Towards Who Will Die Next In The Departed
Something about The Departed keeps viewers constantly on their feet, be it because the film is action-driven, or perhaps because the characters just drop like flies unexpectedly.
And though this may be a reason for some anxiety to some viewers, the film actually hints at who is about to drop next. Scorsese decided to place X’s throughout the film, giving us a hint on who was about to die. Yet, because most viewers didn’t notice this, they weren’t actually able to follow through with the major spoiler.
The Wizard Of Oz Represents Religion Or Atheism?
Many people interpreted the Wizard of Oz from a religious point of view, and to be completely honest, it makes some sense. After all, Dorothy and her friends go on a long path seeking some sort of enlightenment from the Wizard (who represents a godlike figure).
However, since the film’s main message ends up being the fact that “power comes from within” and not from God, some groups in Tennesse actually wanted to get the book banned due to its “anti-religious” message.
X-Men Movies’ Mutants Represent An Important Struggle
In the X-Men movies, the Mutants’ struggle represents the many difficulties that different minorities experience in life, with particular attention to the LGBT community. This topic is extremely close to the director’s heart, who identifies as part of the community.
So in the film, the mutants’ powers develop around the time they are teenagers, and there are even some scenes in the film with the mutants “coming out” about being mutants to their parents.
Aliens Brought Up The Vietnam War On Screen
After the huge success of Alien, James Cameron decided to create a sequel that brings up the Vietnam War to the screen. Apparently, he used imagery that was supposed to “smoothly” resemble images of the war, which would in turn make viewers a little bit anxious.
Whenever really confident troops went in, they would end up becoming sitting ducks, while people felt completely helpless off-screen, just like it happened during the widely televised war.
Could HYDRA From Captain America Be A Reference To The Illuminati?
Captain America fans know exactly what the evil organization of HYDRA is. But because of the similarities between both organizations, some people claim that HYDRA is a reference to the Illuminati secret society, including being connected to the Nazis during WWII.
Some also say that Captain America’s stance somehow represents an Illuminati symbol, the double-V. Whether that’s true or not, that’s up to each viewer to decide.
The Oranges In The Godfather Are A Prediction To Death
If you pay attention the next time you watch the classic film, The Godfather, you’ll realize that it’s no coincidence that oranges appear every single time something really bad happens in the film. They either foreshadow attacks against the family or even deaths in several scenes throughout the movie.
Though the filmmakers claimed that the oranges were just there as an addition to the set design, the coincidence is too big to be untrue.
