7 Insane Fan Theories You Need To Hear

Fan theories can turn a basic plot into something much more mind-blowing — check these ones out and rethink some of your favorite movies and TV shows.

  1. 1

    Django Unchained: Why did Dr. Schultz give up dentistry?

    We're never given a full explanation of why Dr. King Schultz swapped dentistry for bounty hunting in Django Unchained. However, the question might have been answered in Kill Bill Vol. 2 several years earlier, as we see the tombstone of one of his female relatives. It seems that Schultz was on a mission of vengeance all along.

  2. 2

    Harry Potter: The Horcruxes of J.K. Rowling

    In the Harry Potter books, big bad Voldemort creates seven magical Horcruxes to help him live an unnaturally long life. Many fans like to think that author J.K. Rowling did the same — only for her, its the seven books in the series that will let her live on forever.

  3. 3

    Pokemon: Why is Ash forever ten years old?

    In Pokemon myth, whoever sees the legendary Ho-oh is granted eternal happiness. Ash glimpses it in the first episode of the Pokemon anime, so we can assume that for him, eternal happiness is forever continuing his adventures as a ten-year-old boy. Whatever works, kid.

  4. 4

    Willy Wonka: He Knew The Kids Would Be Picked Off

    At multiple instances in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the group touring the titular place of business adopt a new mode of transport — only to find that there are only enough seats for their diminished number. A coincidence? Or evidence that Wonka knows full well that a few children were going to fall victim to his factory.

  5. 5

    The Simpsons: Chief Wiggum isn't Ralph's biological father

    In many ways, Ralph Wiggum is like his dad; simple, a little dumb, perhaps even stupid. However, he doesn't look much like his father. You know who he does resemble? His father's workmate, Eddie — seen looking rather suspicious in the above image.

  6. 6

    Toy Story: Keeping it in the family

    In Toy Story 2, Woody meets Jessie, his female equivalent who was unceremoniously dumped by her original owner. Luckily, she ends up accompanying the gang back to their home with Andy. However, looking back at the original movie, there's a scene where Andy wears a cowboy hat much more similar to Jessie's than Woody's. Perhaps it's a hand-me-down from his mother — and perhaps she's the one that let Jessie go.

    The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air: One little fight

    We've all heard Will Smith rap about the 'one little fight' he got into back in Philly, but did he really make it out of that brawl? Perhaps the 'rare' cabbie that shepherded him to a life that he grew to love wasn't what it seemed — Will died in that fight and went to heaven.
