Recently, there's been a mega-trend in overanalysing sweet Disney movies, ultimately making all of our childhood dreams fade into the very bleak distance.
The most recent has seen Snow White's hopes and dreams come crashing down, along with our own. *Sob*.
If you haven't seen the movie (who are you?!) we'll give you a little refreshment. Snow White is the tale of a beautiful princess, who is banished away to the woods because the Evil Queen is super jealous of her.
The Queen is so angry at Snow White for being a beaut (over-dramatic, much?) that she goes on to poison Snow White with a magic apple.
Everyone thinks Snowy is dead, including her squad of dwarfs and animals, but then TWIST TIME, a handsome Prince comes along, kisses her, she wakes up and the day is saved. Hurray!
But, according to a fan theory, one Reddit user suggested that this is not how it actually went down.
According to Scherazade, the Prince isn't her saviour; he's DEATH. Duh, duh, duhhh.
"Always present, always looming, but never intervening until it's too late. Seen as an escape, but always risky, and she shies away from it when it first tries to embrace her. [Eventually] the Prince as Death saved Snow White, but only after she had fallen irreparably into his embrace through the apple."
However, Movie Pilot roams even deeper than that, and concludes that Prince Charming is actually a really hot Grim Reaper. *Chills*.
"The Prince's kiss could actually represent him rousing Snow White from the grave to escort her into the afterlife, hence the strange imagery in the sky and the white horse used to lead his princess into the distance."
Childhood ruined? Yep, ours too.
