Classic Kids Movies With Some Dark Hidden Meanings

Had you thought of these movies in this way before?

Ah, classic kids movies. Full of love, laughter, happiness, and positive storylines, right? Or so we thought. When you really delve deep into our favorite movies, most of these movies have deeper, and much darker subtexts. What we seem to be innocent is really something else. P.S this might ruin them for you, so we warned! Check out these classic kids movies with some dark hidden meanings…

Finding Nemo (2003)

finding nemo is a dark story about a dad losing his son halfway across the world

Finding Nemo, the lovely movie that reunites a father and son in a loving embrace. Or so we thought. At the beginning of the movie, Nemo’s mother and unborn brothers and sisters are killed – but Nemo survives. But did you know that in Latin, Nemo means ‘no one?’ The theory goes that Nemo isn’t actually alive… but is rather a figment of Marlin’s imagination, as he comes to terms with his wife and Nemo’s death. Excuse us while we go and cry…

Toy Story 3 (2010)

Toy Story 3 could be looked at as similar to world war 2 where the toys represent the jews

When you think about the darker meaning of Toy Story 3, it does kinda make sense – in a really sad, soul-destroying way. The toys in the third movie supposedly represent the Jews in World War II. The characters hide out in the attic to avoid going to Sunnyside, and when they eventually get there, they are treated as if they are in a concentration camp. Childhood ruined.

The Jungle Book (1967)

The Jungle Book was the ultimate sing-along movie – but you might think of the song, ‘I Wanna Be Like You’ a little differently after this. Mowgli is seen to represent the white man in India. With his intellect, he dominates the animals (who represent the uncolonized and uncivilized people of India). And when King Louie sings this song, he really does mean it…

Coraline (2009)

Coraline could represent child abduction as she has a controlling mother who tries to make her into a little doll

Okay, Coraline was a little bit creepy in the first place – or, at least, we thought it was a little creepy. But it seems the message behind the movie is even creepier than we first thought. The movie is supposed to resemble abduction and mind control (Yay! Just kidding…) And if you think about it, it kind of makes sense. The movie focuses on Coraline in the Other World, trying to escape her mother who is trying to make her into her ‘little doll.’ And she even tries to stitch over Coraline’s eyes, so she could no longer see her reality. Erm… we’re never watching it again.

The Star Wars Trilogy (1997 – 1983)

Star Wars is another movie franchise that has been likened to the persecution of Jewish people. The stories throughout all of the movies are a classic tale of good vs. evil, and the Empire represents Nazi Germany. Palpatine stars as Hitler and the Stormtroopers are Nazi Stormtroopers. We can never watch it in the same way again…

Alice in Wonderland (1951)

Alice in Wonderland seems like a big narcotic trip, what with all the psychedelic colors and crazy characters

If you thought Alice in Wonderland was a little bit kooky, but a lovely, honest movie, well… think again. The whole of Alice in Wonderland is laced with drug reference after drug reference. Just think about it… there’s the caterpillar who smokes the hookah, Alice drinks potions and eats mushrooms to grow bigger and smaller, and she drinks teacups full of ‘sugar.’ Well, well.
