Fan Theories Pt. 2

Disclaimer: Some of them actually have no answer to it.

A few months ago, I did a post about Fan Theories and I called it “Fan Theories Pt. 1” (link is below)

https://tvbookfilmreviewers.wordpress.com/2015/11/14/fan-theories-pt-1/

This is part 2.

Princess Bride

In the movie: Wesley had told Dread Pirate Roberts about Buttercup and was kept alive for that. Dread Pirate Roberts made Wesley the Dread Pirate Roberts (which is a code name)

This one is probably well known, but I brought it up on Reddit (Link in the subtitle). The premise of this idea is that The Dread Pirate Roberts heard the story of Buttercup and was touched, but still kills Wesley. He immediately regrets it and then looks for Buttercup in a way to repay Wesley, but never tells Buttercup (for obivous reasons).

“The Polar Express”

You meet a character on the roof on the train. He is a hobo, who is voiced by Tom Hanks. Along with the main boy, his dad, Santa and the Conductor.

I can’t find any reason for the hobo, but I have started thinking about who the Hobo could be:

  • An alternate version of either Billy or the hero boy if they never went on the train, they become bitter to life and became homeless and figures out time travel and makes sure his younger self gets on the train and disappears forever after. Counter-argument: Paradox! PEOPLE IN DIFFERENT TIMES SHOULD NEVER TOUCH!
  • The ghost of the original conductor who makes sure nobody ever falls off the train, because he’s a nice dude

Additional Theories I have no idea about:

  • When the Hobo disappears, why is the last thing remaining his hand?

Peanuts

This one is a silly, yet disturbing one. They’re all patients in an insane asylum in the ’50s. I refuse to type about, but it’s mind-blowing. Link is below

https://www.reddit.com/r/FanTheories/comments/22hkge/the_peanuts_gang_are_all_patients_in_a_1950s/

Doctor Who

  • From series 5, there is a huge alliance made of aliens who hate The Doctor. Prisoner Zero was the first to mention it. When the alliance comes, he is imprisoned, but Prisoner Zero was not there when the alliance imprisons The Doctor. Also, the Silence was part of it… everyone just forgot.
  • Midnight’s monster… who is it? I actually don’t know and neither does anyone else! Please help all of us!

Wizard of Oz

  • Oz is a parallel universe and the Wizard is Wonka after realizing he’s a failure… maybe?
  • Glinda is evil and was using Dorothy to get rid of her competition (like Grace Cahill may have in The 39 Clues)

Interstellar

  • One that overly bothers me: the poem “Do Not Go Gently Into That Good Night” is mentioned multiple times.
  • Another one that bothers a Reddit user: After being on the planet for 23 years, Cooper and Brand’s colleague was fine. He doesn’t go insane. HOW! HE WAS ALONE FOR 23 YEARS

Falling Into Place

I have two theories about this novel, but this spoils this novel heavily.

  • It’s all based on the last five chapters. Liz died and the end is what her imaginary friend wanted to happen and she’s fading into the ether forever and she trying to teach us all a lesson.
  • The other is that Liz is letting go of the imaginary friend and she is fading and she is teaching us all a lesson.

Edge of Tomorrow

  • That ending. That’s all I have to say. HOW DID HE RESTART TIME?! HE LOST IT!!!!!!

Sharkboy and Lavaboy

I have one theory, but it’s likely wrong… Max is a mutant and his power is he can create new worlds and people in that world.

Sherlock (BBC)

  • In episode one, the cab driver was immune to the poisonous pill (like “The Princess Bride” in the battle of the wits) and Sherlock would have died (for real)
  • In the end of Season 3, Mycroft says “You remember what happened to the other one?” who is this other person? The death of Moriaty? Irene Adler escaping? A third sibling?
  • Various discussions of Sherlock not dying and Moriaty not dying or actually dying.

Legend of Zelda

  • The timeline (Which in fact has been explained. Click here)
  • The game breaks the fourth wall and Link explains what’s going on to us. Click here

Mario

There’s one on Reddit and I really liked it, but it is somewhat disturbing BEWARE FELLOW HUMANS. Bowser is Peach’s dad and the king of the Mushroom Kingdom (Click here).

_________ is the true hero of ________. Or ____________ (perceived hero’s name) is the villain of _________

Always a fun theory to come across if you are familiar of said story. Honestly, just type into the Fan Theories subreddit search bar “is the true hero of”

Examples

  • Samwise is the true hero of Lord of the Rings (films)

This exists. I don’t know where. This is my personal favorite theory, because in a way, Frodo addresses that theory when Sam tells Frodo how famous he will become.

and various others

Wreck-It Ralph

This is maybe the only fan theory I made myself before I read it. Calhoun shot her husband as he got eaten by a Cyborg, which is incredibly sad.

The Incredibles

Kari playing Mozart causes Jack-Jack to get his powers. Click Here

 

The Ones I don’t have an answer and I need help for that

  • “The Polar Express” hobo’s hand
  • The monster from Doctor Who’s “Midnight”
  • The poem from “Interstellar”
  • Ending of “Edge of Tomorrow”
  • The other one from “Sherlock”

 

Feel free to break all my theories, or other people’s theories

Theories about The 39 Clues

DISCLAIMER: There is another general Fan Theories post coming. It’s just that The 39 Clues has a lot of mystery to it, so I’m giving 39 Clues a post to itself.

Madrigals: Who was, who wasn’t?

If you have read the entire first series of the 39 Clues, you understand that the Madrigals are a secret branch and they watch Cahills, and if they want to recruit a Cahill, they will give them a final test, and if they pass said final test, they would be told the history of the Madrigals, and become a Madrigal. It is not mentioned who could have been a Madrigal in the first place or during the series itself. I am going to examine each main character and historical figure of the first series in a Madrigal point of view, who weren’t already Madrigals.

The Beginning

The Clue Hunt itself was a final test for everyone who took the hunt and after the clues were found, all participants would become Madrigals, because after the first series, the younger generation (plus one) became Madrigals. Perhaps when the Madrigals felt that the clue hunter was ready they made them Madrigal.

Irina

At the end of “The Black Circle”, Irina tries to protect Amy & Dan and get them out of the Circle before Lucian guards came, but they did, but so did the Man in Black (Fiske Cahill, the head of the Madrigals) came to fight the Lucians. But he release Irina anyways. Why would he release Irina? The Madrigals had chosen the possible competitors, hoping to turn so of them into Madrigals (along with stopping the Vespers to find the clues as well), one of them Irina. There was about two or three days between the end of “The Black Circle” and “In Too Deep”, the Madrigals must have noticed that she began to change in “Beyond the Grave” when she doesn’t destroy the tomb with Amy & Dan in the tomb. So, they test her, between “Beyond the Grave” and “The Black Circle”, which was about a couple of days in between.

Jonah

In between “The Black Circle” & “The Viper’s Nest”, Jonah Wizard was never in the story at all, and his heart is out of the hunt by the end of “The Emporer’s Code” because how much he values human life. Maybe, at some point, he became a Madrigal, and realized the hunt was too much for him. A counter-arguement to that is when Dan reveals that he is a Madrigal, he is left shocked. HE’S AN ACTOR!  He can fake faces, and lie to his parents, who are way more into the hunt than Jonah. In “Storm Warning”, he is once again invisible. But in “Into The Gauntlet”, he’s really to work with anybody (other than the Kabras). The Madrigals are all about working together in between branches. Perhaps Jonah thought of a new way to get the clues, but he needed other people, like Dan Cahill, the person he knows the best, but also fellow Madrigal.

Hamilton

Hamilton was always the Holt who cared. But in “The Black Circle”, Hamilton aligns with Amy & Dan but his dad is very uneasy about the alliance. Even after the alliance is broken by his father, he is helping them behind his dad’s back. He’s always ready to work with Amy or Dan. But they are the only ones he is willing to help. I honestly think Hamilton was hunting clues with his heart, he wasn’t a Madrigal until after the Hunt.

Alistair

Off the bat, Alistair is making alliances left and right. None with anyone in his branch. But he was watching Grace for a long time. Why would Madrigals spy on each other? Then he has an alliance with Amy & Dan and the Kabras, in which the Kabras flip. He aligns with Amy & Dan again the next book, and again two books later. He is then arrested by his uncle, who thinks he’s lazy and going about the clue hunt the wrong way, but there could be more to it. Finally in “Into The Gauntlet” Alistair realizes that there was a love of human life that he never saw (Showing he was never a Madrigal until after the Gauntlet).

The Starlings

In “Maze of Bones” they get blown up and put in hospital and don’t appear until “Into the Gauntlet”. So no.

 

Grace was poisoned

Reading the 39 Clues again, Grace was dangerously close to finding all 39 Clues… and then she gotten cancer. It’s possible that she was poisoned by either a rival Cahill or a Vesper. It wasn’t Alistair. In “Maze of Bones”, he wanted to watch her for longer than he got to. Grace had many enemies in the Cahill family. They didn’t know that Grace would pull her other will, which triggers the clue hunt, meaning that the biggest threat in the Cahill family was taken out, meaning that someone else was super close to finding every clue, has an easier road to the clues.

Isabel & Vikram Kabra (Ian & Natalie’s parents) hatched the plan to take out her daugther, so would they take out her mother, who is much closer than they were to the clues? Also, in “Rapid Fire 2: Ignition”, Ian and Natalie already figured out that the post-funeral would be a huge clue hunt. Bae Oh was dangerously close and didn’t want his nephew to get the clues and he must have figured out that his nephew adored Grace, Cora Wizard may or may not have done something. Maybe Irina Spasky, who at the time was bitter had poisoned Grace. The Outcast may or may not be bitter about what happened between him and Grace and took out Grace. An unknown fact is that there was a Madrigal who was actually a Vesper had tried to infilrate the Madrigals other than Sinead Starling. She was in the cards. Her was Ana Kosara. She may have wanted the clues and poisons Grace and tries to steal her clues. The Vespers could have done it because he knew that the clues were almost found and Grace’s death would likely cause even more chaos in the Cahill family, letting the Vespers hunt clues without Cahills finding them. Also in “Rapid Fire 2: Ignition”, a Vesper poses as Cousin Ingird, a Cahill who turns down the hunt. Also, in “Rapid Fire: Legacy”, Amy & Dan were attacked by Vespers eight months before Grace dies, meaning that within 8 months the three most potentially powerful Cahills would all be gone. AND, Vesper One poisoned Astrid Rosenbloom, a Guardian.

The Rosenblooms (and possibly other Guardians) are actually Cahills

Astrid Rosenbloom was an incredibly smart woman, and so was Atticus, who had a good idea about what was going on with the Cahills. Jane Sperling was a Guardian and an incredibly sneaky lady. Guardians protect the doomsday device from ever being used. There’s a good chance that some generation had a child with a Cahill (possibly early in the Cahill timeline).  So, maybe the Guardians are Cahills as well.

 

J. Rutherford Pierce may have been a Vesper or was aligned with the Outcast

After Cahills vs. Vespers, Pierce who was disgusing Fiske Cahill had taken the serum. The only people in the world who had known about the clues were the Cahills and Vespers. There is a solid chance that Pierce was an Ekat or a Vesper agent and was a new part of the Council of Six.

Could Frozen & Mulan have the same theme?

Two great Disney animated films in Mulan Frozen have some certain similarities.

First off: Let’s look at the plot of the film.

Frozen

A young girl has powers and accidentally almost kills her sister, runs away because she thinks it’s best for her homeland and eventually accepts her powers and finally becomes accepted in her homeland.

Mulan

A girl, who is different to the other girls whose father is going to train for the upcoming war, but is old/injured, so she runs away to save her father from almost certain death and accepts her true self as a warrior and returns home and is accepted by her family.

 

Despite the being made 15 years apart, Frozen Mulan have are very similar to each other.

Fan Theories Pt. 1

I’m going to start by saying that Fan Theories are brilliant. Some are true, and some aren’t but we wished they were true.

These are certain ones I think are quite brilliant.

NOTE: I came up with none of these.

The Pixar Theory

ThePixar Theory

This theory takes the easter eggs in all of Pixar’s films and combines and connects all the films together as all taking place in the same world, showing the conflicts between humans, animals and machines.

NOTE: This was written before “Inside Out”, but “Inside Out” still fits.

How the The Pixar Theory Works on the Human Side:

  • In “Brave” (which according to the theory is the first movie chronologically, set in 14/15 Century) we meet the Will-O-Wisps and an old witch who uses doors to travel.
  • In “The Incredibles” (1950s/1960s), the humans have super powers but the Artificial Intelligence (Omnidroids) as Mirage says it “Too smart to take orders”, starting a war between Humans and Machines
  • In the “Toy Story” (1997-2010) franchise, we are shown humans using and ridding of toys as they grow older, the love for the toys are fueled by Joy in “Inside Out”. Also, Andy has a monster, named Randell.
  • In “Ratatouille” (2007), humans and animals interact directly (Remy & Linguini). Some humans accept, and some protest (Skinner).
  • In “Up” (2011-2016), Charles Muntz uses machines to make animals talk. The animals become as smart as the humans.
  • In “Cars” and “Cars 2” (2100-2200), the humans are all gone (likely in the ship from WALL-E), and the machines keep up the traditions of humans.
  • In “WALL-E” (2800-2900), WALL-E and EVE allow the humans to return to Earth and the viewers realize that the humans have been kept captive by the Auto-Pilot, which runs BnL (Buy n Large, who also made Carl in Up to move), making the humans dependent on machines, taking revenge for “The Incredibles” and “Toy Story”.
  • In “Bug’s Life” (2898-3000), the humans are just beginning to return to Earth and just aren’t in the movie.
  • In “Monsters Inc.” and “Monsters University” (4500-5000), the humans become monsters. Sulley meets Boo, and they form a very strong friendship. Boo, then goes on a mission to find Sulley again, becoming the witch in “Brave”.

How the Pixar Theory works on the Animal side:

  • In “Brave” (14/15 Century), we have Mor’du and Merida’s mother, who became a bear from the witch (Boo)’s magic.
  • In “Finding Nemo” (2003), Nemo is kidnapped by a dentist, and using intelligence, all the fish escapes the Dentist’s office, during the credits.
  • In “Ratatouille”, Remy takes control of a human.
  • In “Up”, (2011-2016), the dogs can talk, thanks to tech
  • In “Bug’s Life” (2898-3000), with all the humans and machines gone, the animals rule the world.

How the Pixar Theory works on the Machine side:

  • In “The Incredibles”, (1950s-1960s) a machine revolts against its master and succeeds.
  • In the “Toy Story” (1997-2010) franchise, the toys who move on their own when their owners are not there, and have feelings. I mean look at Jesse and Lotso Bear!
  • In “Cars” and “Cars 2” (2100-2200), the cars are the only beings there because the humans in “WALL-E” are already in the ship.
  • In “WALL-E”, (2800-2900), after holding the humans in a ship run by machines, the autopilot is defeated by WALL-E and EVE and return the humans to Earth.
  • In “Monsters University” and “Monsters Inc.” (4500-5000), the monsters (or evolved humans) depend on children’s screams, but then children’s laughter for energy

How “Inside Out” fits into the Pixar Theory:

  • Riley was likely born during our transition between the monsters scaring us and making us laugh.
  • Bing Bong was likely partically based on a monster (the legs), and as this video says, it’s likely George Sanderson, the monster who was shaved for having a kid’s sock on him. George made Riley laugh, most likely, as Joy took over Fear as the dominant emotion in people. (NOTICE THE LEGS!)

The Pixar Theory is good. I actually believe it to be true, and to which I congratulate Pixar for planting it all, and I thank Jon Negroni for noticing it all!

Syndrome was not the villain of “The Incredibles”. He was an anti-hero.

This was a long three part essay written on Giant on the Playground defending Syndrome.

How it works:

  • Let’s start with what Syndrome was doing: Killing supers when the government didn’t want supers in the world.
  • The government never told any super about what was going on. The government probably funded Syndrome. At the end of the film, the government CLAIMED they would arrest Syndrome. They likely respected Syndrome and would have let him go, but that’s another theory I’m trying to piece together.
  • Syndrome took out the most threatening or wild card supers: Psycwave (Mind Control. Massive threat), Everseer (mind reader and future seer), Macroburst (Wind control), Phylange (Sound control), Blazestone (Fire), Downburst (Gravity control), Hypershock (Earthquakes), Apoglee (Gravity control), Stormicide (Wind bursts), Gazerbeam (Laser eyes), Gamma Jack (Radiation). Most are either emotionally unstable, threats to society or are in situations that could unset said supers.
  • He took a massive risk by telling Mr. Incredible to kill Mirage, but he knew his weakness. Mr. Incredible wouldn’t kill if he could help it.
  • He did not know there were kids on the plane, he did not know if Elastigirl was being honest.
  • Sending out the Omnidroid into the city was Syndrome trying to prove that people with supertech was better than superhumans
  • He kidnapped Jack-Jack because, let’s face it. The Parr family was quite dysfunctional.

I think had Syndrome never used the operation, I think the Bob and Helen split. On the other hand, if you combine Tony Stark and Hitler, you have Syndrome. But no matter what, Syndrome FAILED, and massively failed.

Finding Nemo never happened:

The theory shows Marlin going through the five stages of grief.

How the theory works:

  • The cold open is Marlin losing his family
  • The first stage of grief is denial. Marlin saves Nemo (which by the way, is latin for no one)
  • The second stage is anger. Marlin in bitterness doesn’t give Nemo any freedom, who in bitterness goes and touches the “butt” (or boat) and is kidnapped.
  • The third stage is bargaining. The turtles, Dory & the sharks try to teach Marlin that it doesn’t matters anymore (Turtles & Dory) and not everything is as it seems (the sharks).
  • The fourth stage is despair. Nigel takes Marlin to Nemo, only to see him almost die.
  • The final stage is acceptance. He realizes that he needs to let Nemo go to school.

Basically, “Finding Nemo” is based on the “Frozen” song, “Let It Go”.

Or… “Finding Nemo” and “Frozen” are the same movie.

Good, Bad or Ugly?

It’s good. It’s very interesting.

The Doctor uses faces he saw in previous generations and chooses to use the faces in regeneration

The 12th Doctor is currently played by a character from a 10th Doctor episode.

The first Doctor met the 2nd, 3rd and 5th Doctors…. the 5th Doctor met the 6th… who met the 10th Doctor… who met the 11th Doctor.

How Captain Jack became the Face of Boe

At the end of season 3 of Doctor Who, Captain Jack mentioned that he becomes the Face of Boe, leaving us pondering how he came to that, and we met the Headless Monks.

  • Dorium was in leagues with the Headless Monks and he sold River Song a time manipulator, which he plucked off the wrist of a handsome time agent (possibly Captain Jack)
  • Captain Jack WAS as time agent and he had a time manipulator in the end of season 3

The Great Stone Dragon in Mulan

The theory suggests either Mulan or Mushu is the Great Stone Dragon.

“During the scene when Mulan decides to go to war instead of her father, she decides to do it while sitting on the foot of the Great Stone Dragon. The image of the dragon looking over Mulan is repeated several times throughout the sequence, and the bolts of lightning strike at significant times whenever the dragon is in sight. When Mulan takes her father’s scroll and when she is praying to her ancestors, the Great Stone Dragon can be seen. It is also engraved on the sword Mulan uses to cut her hair and the handles of the wardrobe containing the armor are in the shape of the dragon’s head. The dragon’s eyes glowing in the temple symbolizes Mulan’s role as protector of her family awakening, instead of the actual dragon.”

tumblr user sansaspark

Mulan didn’t want her father to go to war, figuring he would die, so she prays in front of the Great Stone Dragon, and the spirit passed on to her and she goes to war.

The merchant at the beginning of Aladdin

Theory #1: He made the whole story up

Theory #2: The Merchant is the Genie

Theory #2 is supported here. This was the original ending to Aladdin. The theory is confirmed here.

Different things in Birdman

Riggan planned his death and foreshadowed it, failed the first time, and succeeded the second try.

  • The end of Riggan’s play has the main character shooting himself (maybe Riggan was suicidal from before the beginning)

Other Theories

  • Jake, the agent represents reality. He sees things as they normally should be. He sees Riggan ripping up his room, throwing around things.
  •  The drummer shows foreshadowing. Whenever there is drumming, something important happens within a few minutes
  • Blue represents dreaming. When Riggan’s girlfriend tells Riggan he’s pregnant, it’s blue, and she was never pregnant.

Whiplash is represented by clothing colour

The darker the colour, the more confident the character is. Fletcher wears black all movie long. Neiman wears darker clothes as the film progresses.
