People frequently inquire, “Are there Disney hidden messages in their movies?” The answer is, sure, there are! There have been countless reports that have clearly and unequivocally revealed that Disney movies contain numerous hidden messages in its cartoons and flicks.
Then a simple question occurs to us: “Why are there any subliminal messages in Disney movies?” The precise solution to this question is still unknown.
However, as many people believe, there were many unaccredited developers involved in the creation of these films, and they were upset that they were not recognized and rewarded.
As a form of retaliation, they put some subliminal messages in these Disney films.
List of Many Subliminal Messages in Disney Movies
There are multiple hidden messages reported in Disney films. If you pay close attention, you will notice their existence in a variety of texts.
However, the following are some of the most well-known and contentious subliminal themes found in Disney films.
Aladdin is one of the most well-known Disney films. This film’s hidden message generated the greatest attention and controversy.
If you pay close attention, you will discover a subliminal message when Aladdin sneaks in and climbs through Jasmine’s Palace’s wall, and when her pet tiger confronts Aladdin on the roof.
“Good kitty, down boy!” says Aladdin. Then you’ll hear a muffled sound saying, “Good teenagers, take off your clothes!”
Disney refused to agree that this was subliminal activity; yet, it is easily audible and has caused some dispute. It’s strange that such a film received a G rating.
There was a scene in which Bernard and Bianca were about to rescue their friend Wilbur; in the background, you can clearly see a naked woman with her private parts on full display. This is clearly improper for minors.
The Lion King
The Lion King, perhaps one of the best Disney films, was also said to have a subliminal message. There have been various reports that the word ‘sex’ appears frequently in numerous Disney films, including The Lion King.
A bit of dust appears in the scene where Simba sits down, and the word ‘sex’ is clearly visible. Some argue that it is ‘SFX’ rather than ‘sex,’ although this is not difficult to comprehend. One question is why such Disney hidden messages would be inserted in a children’s movie in the first place. Its entire premise is upsetting.
Furthermore, When Nala walks out to seek assistance after Scar’s reign destroys their house, she encounters an adult Simba.
They fight, then speak while listening to Elton John’s “Can You Feel The Love Tonight?” and nuzzling. This appeared to be a nice innocent moment between longtime friends as a child.
When I watched the movie as an adult, I noticed that Nala was clearly giving Simba the ‘bedroom eyes’ in that scene.
Given the song choice and the fact that they soon return to Pride Rock, overthrow Scar, and have a cub, the moment makes perfect sense. Timon was correct; Simba and Nala ‘felt the love’ in the soft caress of dusk.
The Little Mermaid
Another well-known Disney film, The Little Mermaid, is said to feature an erected male’s private part. A palace-style kingdom is depicted on the cover.
If you look closely at the heart of that kingdom, you can see the built part.
There was a lot of discussion regarding the underlying undertones in Turning Red, as there were many interesting facts about the picture. One thing is certain: it’s an allegory for menstruation, and more specifically, female puberty.
Meilin discovers as a teenager that when she is furious, she transforms into a big red panda. The panda is meant to represent Meilin growing older, maturing, and transitioning into womanhood.
Turning Red is also about the mother/daughter bond and the difficulties that come when young girls reach this critical juncture in their lives.
The meaning goes much further: in Chinese tradition, the color red represents luck, joy, and happiness.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
The Hunchback of Notre Dame is one of Disney’s most daring productions. The original story’s ideas were very mature, but they had to be altered for a young audience.
Esmeralda’s form can be seen in flames in one scene. It’s a fairly realistic silhouette for a children’s film, but you’d have to pause it to see it.
Most other hidden messages in Disney films are introduced for entertainment purposes and add nothing to the plot.
This one, however, is unique in that it underlines one of the film’s central conflicts: Judge Claude Frollo’s wicked desire for Esmeralda. ‘This heat in my skin, this scorching need, is turning me to sin,’ Frollo sings.
Fans and conspiracy theorists go crazy over secret Disney meanings and what they represent. Uncle Scrooge sits unhappily on an examination bed in one DuckTales scene.
The word ‘ASK ABOUT ILLUMINATI’ is written in an eye chart on the wall behind him.
This sparked a lot of discussion about the message’s intent. Was it a dig at conspiracy theorists of the Illuminati? Others thought Disney was attempting to convey a deeper message. This one was obvious in terms of hidden messages.
Donald Duck is purportedly heard cursing in several scenes. Although, Donald Duck’s speech impediment is one of his primary character traits.
Fans believe he gets away with a lot because most of what he says seems like nonsense, including extensive usage of curse words in rage.
A Bug’s Life
Some Disney hidden meanings are found throughout the tale rather than in a single moment, like in this film. A Bug’s Life is distressing even for a youngster. The ants toil for the grasshoppers, but they suffer at their hands.
Fans of the film have seen connections between the behavior of the grasshoppers and those of various governments across the world.
At one point, Hopper, the head grasshopper, informs the other grasshoppers, ”Yes, one ant is weak against us; but if they join together, they will be stronger”.
This sends a strong message to the ants (and the people they represent) that they can band together and beat the bad leaders. It’s no surprise that it’s a hit among adults.
Disney has long been suspected of hiding subliminal sexual elements in its animated films. The evidence against the Mouse appears to be stacking up swiftly.
From inappropriate lines hidden in the sky in “The Lion King” to provocative language in “Aladdin,” the evidence appears to be mounting up quickly, or does it? I hope the above piece has clarified things for you.
