7 Fan Theories That Are Too Good to Not Be True

It's too good that they should have their own version of the movie!

Here are some mind-boggling fan theories that'll make you not look at these movies the same way again! 

  1. Snape's first words to Harry might mean more than you think.

Tumblr user tomhiddles, theorized that Snape's rude words when he first met Harry holds a secret message. It's actually more than a rude teacher dealing with a new popular student. Snape says "Potter! What would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?" In flower language, asphodel means "my regrets follow you to the grave" and wormwood in flower talk means absence which actually translates to bitter sorrow. Putting those two together, what Snape is actually saying to the son of his love Lily was, "I bitterly regret Lily's death." (via

  1. Sid became a garbage man to save toys.

Everybody hated the bully Sid from Toy Story because he's the reason why Woody and Buzz had a hard time getting back to Andy. But Reddit user londongarbageman tells a different story. He theorizes that after 15 years in Toy Story 3, Sid became a garbage man to right his wrongs of bullying toys when he was a kid. The theorizer, being a garbage man himself, wrote that they find lots of things from people's stuff and that "he (Sid) is trying to save the toys. He picked the one kind of job where you can rescue those things. And Sid is uniquely equipped to fix those toys that he finds that are broken." What made this theory more believable was the fact that the garbage man and Sid wore the same black skull shirt! (via

  1. Peter Pan is an angel and Neverland is heaven.

The saddest Peter Pan theory ever, but most realistic one was that the boy who never grew up was actually an angel of death who holds children's hands to go to Neverland—which is heaven. And the reason why the kids never grow old in Neverland is because all of them are actually dead. (via

  1. Marlin is actually going through the stages of grief.

That just made Finding Nemo even more heartbreaking! This theory states that at the start of the film, everyone in his family dies. Because the first stage of grief is denial, Marlin invents Nemo as a coping mechanism and that the whole film is actually just his journey going through the stages of grief. (via

  1. E.T. uses the force and actually lived in the Star Wars universe.

Okay, so first we spotted E.T. in the Star Wars: Episode I council meeting. Then, in the movie of E.T., the alien saw a child wearing a Yoda costume and pointed to him and said "Home." This totally explains why he can make the bike fly—because he was using the force! (via


  1. The Powerpuff Girls and Samurai Jack share the same world. And Samurai Jack is the Professor.

Would you believe that the Powerpuff Girls and Samurai Jack lived in the same universe? The theory states that the professor from Powerpuff is actually Samurai Jack in the post-apocalyptic future! It's not hard to believe because Samurai Jack and the professor actually share some similarities, appearance-wise. (via

  1. Jack was never on board the Titanic ship. He never existed!

The theory goes that Jack is actually a figment of Rose's imagination in order for her not to commit suicide. She was in a vulnerable mental state so Jack was created to be the perfect guy companion that Rose could escape reality with. Everything she did with Jack, she actually did alone. Including the nude portrait—they theorize Rose painted it. This actually makes sense because at the beginning of the film, it was established that Rose loved art—she has a whole lot of paintings she could fit in a gallery! And we're with you with the argument that the floating door at the end could totally fit two people! If a surfboard could do it, why can't a door?!(via

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.


You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”


I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
