In the wedding scene (prior to his family being taken into witness protection) we learn that his name is Robert Parr. Minister: Robert Parr, will you have this woman to be your lawful wedded wife? and it was Robert "Bob" Parr when he met Elastigirl in the first place. "Oh, well...I thought I'd see you there." He let out a chuckle as he ...

In-universe answer: It seems quite plausible that Elsa is descended from someone who was cursed by ice magic. That power may have then transferred down the family line. As you can see from the image below, the King's library has a book detailing the risks of being hit by ice powers. In this book we see a picture of a man being cured by trolls. The runes ...

The question is not about there being a limit to people who could wish stuff, or even things to be wished for. It's that Aladdin promised Genie that he'd use his last wish to set him free. ALADDIN: Fair deal. So, three wishes. I want them to be good. (To GENIE) What would you wish for? ... GENIE: Freedom. ALADDIN: You're a prisoner? GENIE: It's all ...

Disney were keen to make a follow-up to Mary Poppins as early as 1982 but the movie ended up in a glorious legal mess because of legal clauses on both sides that required creative agreement from both Disney and P.L. Travers herself. Former Disney vice president of production Marty Kaplan describes how this deadlock resulted in the sequel film being put ...

Yes, and no... Donald Duck's first love interest was Donna Duck, first appearing in the Don Donald 1937 short film. Click image to enlarge. However, this is where things get confusing. Whilst she has appeared in comics alongside Daisy, Disney states that they are the same character. Click images to enlarge. I can't actually find a copy online to get ...

For the record, Maui is perfectly capable of swimming in human form (and seems both reasonably buoyant and pretty confident of his chances of swimming at least a mile) but it seems unlikely that even a demi-god could swim the hundreds of miles required to get to the next nearest island. He may simply have been using hyperbole. With his vast muscle-mass, he ...

When they visit the trolls, the Grand Pabbie asks "Born or cursed?" Elsa's dad answers "Born." Aside from this, there is no other reference to how she got her powers. Here's a link to the screenplay. On page 6 is where they visit the trolls. EDIT AFTER FROZEN 2 RELEASE:

Looking through the full list of Aladdin characters, the genies that we see on screen are Genie, Evil Genie, Jafar, and Eden. While we know that Jafar was originally human before wishing to become a genie, there's nothing that I can find that alludes to Genie's or Eden's life before making their appearances. In fact, the very first sentence of Eden's bio ...

A few of the 'supers' in the pictures are identifiable; Frozone by his distinctive ice trail, Dynaguy by his helmet crest and Meta-Man by his trademark pose. The others depicted don't appear in the film or any of its associated materials, in particular; There are only two known supers with wings (both insectile, one fictional) No known supers have a ...

George Lucas doesn't want them released After it was announced that Disney was buying Fox (which would give Disney the distribution rights for the original trilogy), Pablo Hidalgo took to Twitter to clarify that this had no effect on any plans for a release. Pablo Hidalgo: Good morning! What's kept the original theatrical editions off of home video is the ...

Anna doesn't regain her memories during the movie. Frozen's writer/director Jennifer Lee has confirmed this on Twitter: Since "Elsa filled her in," Anna would know that her memory of skating with Elsa was a false one, even though she didn't have her old memories back. Additionally, a follow-up book, Memory and Magic, is going to deal with Anna ...

The Genie does make him a Prince but Jafar uses magic to turn him from Prince Ali back into plain old Aladdin: Yes, meet a blast from your past Whose lies were too good to last Say hello to your precious Prince Ali! (JAFAR zaps ALI back to ALADDIN.) - Aladdin Disney Script The genie confirms that Aladdin will need to use another wish if he ...

I believe that the answer is as simple as that his name really is Bob Parr and there is no evidence that it has changed. The witness relocation issue really isn't that much of a problem because memories are erased. Normally the government agent and Bob's old friend Rick Dicker would cover such an incident by paying to keep the company quiet, relocating ...

The Disney Wikia maintains a pretty solid (and ongoing updated) answer to this very question. The Official Disney Princess lineup doesn't include a number of bona-fide princesses who've appeared in animated feature films released by Walt Disney Studios; Queen (formerly Princess) Anna and Queen (formerly Princess) Elsa from Frozen Princess Nala from the ...

The situation is ambiguous, at least for the novel, as whether it's just boys, or boys and girls, depends on the translation. Children (depending upon the translation of the original Italian, the novel has included both boys and girls or only boys) are lured there by the Coachman with the promise of never having to go to school again and being able to ...

As of Uncle Scrooge Issue 341, his net worth is approximately $315,569,400,000,000,000. A magic hourglass causes him to lose a billion dollars a minute. He opines that he'll be bankrupt "in 600 years" at that rate. The math from that point is quite simple. This of course doesn't take into account any interest charges, ongoing investments (he's known to own ...

Vanellope isn't "just a glitch". The system that identifies participants in the races presumably draws from a database of participants. Vanellope is in that database, even if her data was somewhat corrupted. It is safe to assume that the normal gold coins aren't imprinted with the identity of the specific racer who won them, as that would require that the ...

Primarily, Disney via the Lucasfilm Story Group... The Lucasfilm Story Group is a division of Lucasfilm, created after the Disney acquisition; it's their job to keep the Star Wars canon as internally consistent as possible, and to guide its development.

In addition to FuzzyBoots's answer, some other details about the original novel. The adventure in the Land of Toys happens in chapters 30 to 33 of "Le avventure di Pinocchio". In these chapters, Carlo Collodi uses the word "ragazzi" all the time. As Nolimon said in the comment (and FuzzyBoots's reported in his answer), in Italian "ragazzi" may mean both "...

The script is very clear on the first point. Jafar doesn't just remove his Aladdin's fancy clothes, he fully reverts him to being a peasant: He literally zaps [Prince] ALI back to [commoner] ALADDIN: Yes, meet a blast from your past Whose lies were too good to last Say hello to your precious Prince Ali! (JAFAR zaps ALI back to ALADDIN.) - ...

I think you're mis-viewing the scene. Elsa uses her powers to make a snow flurry appear in mid-air She then uses the "sweep crossed hands" gesture (otherwise known as the "no good gesture") to cancels the power holding the flakes up, which makes the ice crystals fall out of the air. There's no particular evidence to suggest that she's thawed them when ...

According to the creator of Darkwing Duck, Tad Stones, the show exists within an alternate universe from Duck Tales. He goes on to state that though Launchpad first appeared in DuckTales, the Darkwing version was different. For starters, Launchpad always seemed to crash his plane in DuckTales but was a competent pilot in Darkwing Duck "Because ...

This sounds like "Heirs of the Perisphere" by Howard Waldrop, published in 1985 in Playboy rather than Omni, and even nominated for a Nebula Award. It starts pretty much as you remember it, with a storm over a factory and a lightning strike that kicks it back into motion. Things had not been going well at the factory for the last fifteen hundred ...
