I am a front-end developer by profession, but I enjoy writing articles about anything mysterious, interesting, and fascinating.

There are a number of wonderful movies written by people with brilliant imagination and skill. And for each of these amazing movies, there are lots of innovative fans coming up with interesting conspiracy theories. These conspiracy theories seem so realistic that they might just be true. Reading these theories will completely change the way you view the below-mentioned movies.

Harry Potter’s Life is a Fantasy:

There are a number of fan theories about the Harry Potter series but none is as intriguing as this one. Some people suggest that all the events that happened in the Harry Potter series are just an imagination running inside Harry’s mind. Harry Potter never even left the cupboard under the stairs of the Dursleys house. The most depressing part of this fan theory is the even J.K.Rowling did not deny its possibility.

The fact is that this could easily be true. It makes sense that an abused boy suffering from depression and anxiety would make up these sequence of events to make life more bearable. At least this would be more likely than the existence of a magical world of witches and wizards! In the Harry Potter universe, Harry is the main protagonist and everyone relies on him even though he did not do anything at the start.

Under the care of the Dursleys, Harry is not given any care or attention. This could explain why he yearned to be at the center of attention as in the Harry Potter universe. And he also imagines that his parents had left him a fortune which could be due to his grief that they had actually not left him anything. The proof of this theory can be found in the Deathly Hallows where Harry asks a ghost Dumbledore if everything is happening in his head. Dumbledore replies, “Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”

The Pixar Theory:

“The Pixar Theory” suggests that all the films created by Pixar share a common universe with the same characteristics and common logic. All the Pixar movies have also been placed in a timeline with internal references between each other to support this claim. The first movie in the Pixar universe is ‘The Good Dinosaur’. In an alternate reality, the meteor narrowly misses earth allowing the dinosaurs live longer.

This would be the reason why there is far less oil in the world and the need to harness human emotion as energy in the coming years. In the movie ‘Brave’, Melina discovers ‘the-will-of-the-wisps’ that turns her mother into a bear using magic. It is with this magic that animals and inanimate objects behave like humans. Magic is also the reason for the existence of superheroes as well. This is brought out in the movie ‘The Incredibles’. In this movie, there is a struggle between the superhumans and the self-serving AI robots. This struggle would further be present in the later movies.

Cobb’s totem in ‘Inception’:

Cobb’s totem

In the movie Inception, a Totem is defined as an object which can be used to test if a person is in reality or someone else’s dream. It is usually a small object whose shape and weight is well known by the beholder. Since it is very difficult to recreate the exact object by another person, it can be used to check if the person is stuck in a dream world. Cobb’s totem is a spinning top which originally belonged to Mal.

In the ending of the movie, we see that the spinning leading many to guess whether he was in a dream or reality. The fact is, many fans believe that Cobb’s actual totem is his wedding ring. We also see that he does not have his ring on his finger in reality and only has it on during his dream. His hand also apparently doesn’t seem to have his ring during the final scene.

RoboCop is Actually Jesus:


The movie RoboCop released in 1987 was one of the best science fiction movies of the decade. The movie’s director, Paul Verhoeven in an interview revealed that the movie was based on the story of Christ. The resurrected robot hero was the “American Jesus”. The movie was directed to depict the story of Jesus Christ and there are various pieces of evidence for the same.

The movie is basically about a guy who gets crucified in the first 50 minutes and then is resurrected in the next 50 minutes. After being resurrected, he is the super-cop of the world and during the end of the movie, he even walks on water! There are even finer details as well. Jesus was nailed to the cross through his palm whereas Sgt. Murphy open hand is targeted with a shotgun in the film.

Frozen and Tarzan Theory:

There is an interesting fan theory around the movies Frozen and Tarzan. It is believed that Anna and Elsa are the older sisters of Tarzan. This has even been confirmed by the movie director. In the movie ‘Frozen’, the two sisters are presented as orphans and that their parents had died in a shipwreck. Some people speculate that they might have actually survived and ended up on a deserted island where Tarzan was born.

This is what could have actually happened. The parents of Anna and Elsa were part of a shipwreck but didn’t die. The mother was pregnant and gave birth to a baby boy on the boat. They had washed ashore on a deserted island and ended up in a jungle. There they ended up creating a treehouse where a leopard kills them. So their baby boy ends up getting raised by gorillas.

Titanic: Jack is a Time Traveler:

The Titanic
The Titanic

There are a number of fan theories about the Titanic and we would all agree that there definitely was space for two people on that door in which Rose stayed afloat. But there is an even more interesting fan theory. Some suggest that Jack was a time traveler from the future who comes back to save Rose from committing suicide. Why? Because if she did, there would have been a delay in its schedule and the Titanic would not have sunk on that day which would change history by a lot. So here are the reasons which make us think that Jack might be a time traveler.

  1. Jack gets the ticket for the journey by gambling because he didn’t have any currency of the time period.

  2. He claims to have gone ice fishing in lake Wissota which is a man-made lake created in 1917 which is 5 years after the Titanic sank.

  3. He mentions about riding the roller coaster at the Santa Monica Pier. However, there was no roller coaster there in 1912.

  4. Jack’s haircut was also too weird for that current time period.

  5. The filtered cigarettes he was smoking also did not come out until the 1940s.

Willy Wonka is actually George Weasley:

Willy Wonka

There are a lot of similarities between Willy Wonka and George Weasley. Wonka is an eccentric, mischievous and loves to have a good laugh. These are all characters which match with George Weasley. Besides being redheads they are also both showmen who like to pull off pranks on others. One more similarity is that Willy Wonka is hard on hearing in one ear whereas George lost one of his ears while battling the death eaters.

After the tragic loss of his brother Fred, George decides to come back to the muggle world and create a chocolate factory to try making magical candies. All his creations seem too magical to be made from normal ingredients. It is also believed that Willy Wonka (or George Weasley) already knew beforehand on the accidents that would happen to the children as during the tour the number of seats in the vehicles keeps decreasing.

Peter Pan Is Actually The Angel Of Death:

Peter Pan
Peter Pan

Peter Pan is the angel who holds hands and guides dead children over to Neverland (heaven). James Matthew Barrie, the author of the book Peter and Wendy lost his brother, David when he was just 13 years old. This death affected him and his mother a lot. His mom took solace in the fact that David would never grow old or leave home. The children in the story also oddly do not seem to grow old.

In Chapter 1, Peter Pan is described as a psychopomp who guides dead children to heaven so that they won’t be frightened. It could very well be true that Peter Pan was just playing with the dead children and guiding them to move on to their afterlife. The name ‘Peter’ comes from the name of one of the sons of his friend and ‘Pan’ is the mischievous Greek God of the woodlands.

Nemo Did Not Even Exist:

Finding Nemo
Finding Nemo

At the start of the movie ‘Finding Nemo’, Nemo’s mother is killed along with hundreds of unborn siblings. Marlin is now determined to protect his only son, Nemo. He is portrayed as being very anxious and overprotective of his son. But there is a darker truth to the story. What if Nemo never actually existed and all or Martin’s children were killed?

The name ‘Nemo’ in Latin translated to ‘NO ONE’. So Nemo is just an imaginary character created by Marlin to cope with his loss. The entire story is the imagination of Marlin who is feeling guilty for the loss of his family as he could do nothing to save them. Nemo going to school at the end represents Marlin finally coming to terms with his loss.

Phoebe Is A Meth Addict:


Phoebe is one of the most mysterious characters of the Friends series. She doesn’t have a solid backstory or any particular relation with the other friends. She is always the odd one out. There is a theory that Phoebe is just a homeless girl addicted to drugs. She is just a lonely girl who observed the other friends at Central Perk and wants to be part of their lives.

Phoebe only wanted to have friends and so she imagines herself being part of their lives and the entire series is a figment of her imagination. The final scene would have been Phoebe walking away from Central Perk with the other friends remarking her as the “crazy lady who stares at us”. She returns to the park where she sleeps in front of a fountain and puts up six brightly colored umbrellas to shield her from the rain.
