Ever since Frozen became the highest-grossing animated film of all time, fans and movie experts have been chomping at the bit to analyze it for hidden meanings. They’ve even created theories over secret plots.
Some of these are whimsical and cute interpretations while others are rather horrid and disgusting. One such theory that firmly fits into the latter camp has recently emerged, and it suggests that Kristoff’s outfit from the film isn’t just made out of reindeer skin. In fact, it states that the reindeer he killed to create his coat was the mother of his best friend and travelling companion, Sven. Seriously.
Just take a look at the pair. Here’s Kristoff’s adorable pal Sven.
And now here’s a closer look at Kristoff’s attire, which might possibly have belonged to the mother of his BFF.
Obviously, this is far from conclusive proof. But Reddit user superclaude1, who first devised this theory and uploaded it to Reddit earlier this week, has gathered further evidence that he then uses to back-up his claim.
Superclaude1 writes, “I’m probably slow but [have] only just noticed that in Frozen, Kristoff’s coat is made from fur. And if you look closer at the pics the fur part seems to be reindeer. I don’t think it can be wolf [because] the pelt is too big.”
If it’s not wolf fur, then what could it possibly be? Well, superclaude1 has figured it out, and it makes for the aforementioned grim and gory reality. In fact, superclaude1 believes that this theory fits perfectly in with the context of the story.
He adds, “The ice harvesters must have killed Sven’s mother, leaving a baby Sven for Kristoff to look after, and giving him the pelt to wear.”
But rather than driving the pair apart, superclaude1 believes that it’s actually helped to bring the duo closer together. How?
He notes, “This explains why Sven is so close to Kristoff too, and why Kristoff still wears the same pelt. The smell reminds Sven of his mum.”
The Huffington Post went on to gruesomely add that Kristoff hails from Scandinavia and is part of the community known as Sami, who are known for reindeer herding and rely on these creatures for meat, transportation, and even fur.
Regardless of whether this theory is true, not only will you never be able to watch Frozen the same way again, but it would also certainly make for an audacious plot for Frozen 2.
