Tarzan’s Jane Is Descended From Beauty And The Beast’s Belle

While looking for details to support the theory connecting Frozen‘s King and Queen to Tarzan‘s parents, I actually found more compelling evidence to suggest Tarzan‘s Jane is related to Belle.

Not one to walk away from a good Disney theory, I thought it was worth presenting that evidence.

So here it is:

The Jane Theory

In my Disney world article, I point out that a teapot looking like Mrs. Potts from Beauty and the Beast appears in Tarzan. That theory suggests its another symptom of Disney’s erratic magical characters, but what if it wasn’t?

22 Tarzan ft Beauty

That is some hard-wearing table-wear! (Chip notwithstanding)

What if the tea-set Tarzan’s gorilla-friend Terk is drumming on is actually a centuries-old heirloom from the Porters’ noble past? In fact, it could be just one of the clues connecting Jane Porter to Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

You see, cutlery isn’t the only thing Jane has inherited from her royal ancestor.

There’s her dress-sense:

Turns out style is genetic…

Her eccentric father:

fathers

…as is being nuts.

Her taste in (slightly wild) men:

Beast Tarzan

The beauties and their hygienically-challenged beasts.

And her passion for civilising those men:

Reading

Granted, Beast’s Romeo and Juliet is a bit more advanced than ‘See Jane Run’

It’s also interesting that we don’t have a surname for Belle or her father Maurice, and Belle goes on to marry Beast, whose popular name ‘Prince Adam’ isn’t even officially recognised.

So how do you connect the daughter of an eccentric French inventor to the daughter of an eccentric British adventurer?

Through an eccentric German Duke, of course.

'Like a chicken with the grace of a monkey!'

‘Like a chicken with the grace of a monkey!’

As commenter Kate O’Gara pointed out on The Tarzan Theory, Frozen‘s Duke of Weselton looks more than a little like Jane’s father, Professor Q. Porter.

Wessleton

Balding is hereditary – the Duke’s fooling no-one.

 

This is because he is the familial link that connects Beauty and the Beast and Tarzan.

If we take an estimate from the original story’s publication (La Belle et la Bête in 1740), Beauty and the Beast‘s French setting is probably somewhere in the late to mid-1700s. Based on similar estimates, Frozen is likely set in the mid-1800s.

However, Frozen‘s Duke is  from a German town called Weselton. How can he be the grandson of a French prince?

Because something happened between those two dates…

The French Revolution

Prince Adam and Belle probably fled France to avoid the guillotine but were still well-off enough to win favour with the German nobility. It would explain why the Duke incorrectly corrects the pronunciation of ‘Weselton’ as ‘WESS-ul-tun!’ when a German native would pronounce it ‘VAY-zel-tun’. (The Duke’s German accent is authentic, but it’s possible he is too used to his immigrant parents’ pronunciation.)

This family link would also explain why the Duke is so terrified of ‘sorcery’ and magical women with long fair hair.

Sorcery!

‘Sorcery!’

 

Because his grandfather was cursed by a blonde enchantress.

enchantress

Come to think of it, who is this ‘enchantress’?

Clearly the legend of his grandfather falling afoul of a magical enchantress have been passed down in the Duke’s family (though sadly not accompanying the lesson about vanity – as proven by his poorly-attached toupee).

Since the Duke is frozen out of all future trade with Arendelle at the end of the film, it’s possible he wouldn’t have been popular with his constituents on returning to Weasel Town. Maybe he would start looking for a change of scenery. He’s clearly a resourceful and adaptable businessman, and his family wouldn’t be strangers to change.

He would just need the right opportunity to profit from, say…

The British Industrial Revolution

The Duke seems like the kind of guy who knows a goldmine when he sees one. If he made it to Britain soon after the first Industrial Revolution, he would probably do pretty well for himself (and help his children to do so too).

Well enough that his grandson went on to be a professor with the means to lead expeditions to the African continent. Not filthy rich, by any means, but rich enough to be well spoken (that German accent would grow unpopular in pre-World War I Britain) and hold on to a few heirloom tea-sets.

And having come from a family that had yo-yo’d between rags and riches across Europe, you can bet his descendants would be adventurous, adaptable and able to understand people who don’t necessarily speak their language.

'Schön, Sie kennenzulernen.'

‘Ich Jane, Du Tarzan.’

Meaning…

Jane is Belle’s great, great, great, grand-daughter.

Jane Belle

But the family tree doesn’t end there!

Because in The Disney Theory I explain that Professor Q Porter possessing a toy of Little Brother from Mulan proves that his family went on to make the fictional movies of the Disneyverse (Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Dumbo, Mulan).

In Tarzan we actually see that Professor Q Porter owns the equipment of early cinema.

Projector

Meaning…

The Disneyverse Has
Its Own Walt Disney

        the little introduction in beauty and the beast claims that the servents turned into the princes household items. i believe this means that the original items had to remain in existence. other wise what would the beast use after becoming human again. you see, the teaset that was mrs pots, chip and the other children of the castle were replicas of the original tea set. which would have been passed down. Walt Disney was insanely into the occult and loved to create a good mystery. none of these things are mere recycling of designs

    Also If you think about it, Belle had a love for books and stories and was viewed as kind of crazy like her father because of it. And in Tarzan jane tries to explain, quite dramatically, of the monkeys and seeing Tarzan, to which her father states something along the lines: she takes after her mother you know, she use to tell stories like that. Plus at Janes camp there is that huge pile of books that the gorillas are seen tearing up. Could those possible be Janes so she has plenty of adventure reading material while on the trip? So I would think Belle read to her children because she enjoyed books, which could very likely instill a love of books into her children who in turn did the same for their children.

Think about it; Jane from Peter Pan lived during the dawn of the British Industrial Revolution, & by the time Jane became an adult, the technology would probably be on par with the technology shown in Tarzan. Not only that, but it may show us why Jane is adventurous; when she was younger, she was taken to Neverland, which inspired her to go to the British colony in Africa later; she may have wanted to experience a new adventure.

    This theory is really good and well thought out but you’re completely ignoring the end of beauty and the beast. there are two explanations why Mrs pots and chip are in Tarzan, one, it’s a witty Easter egg put in by the Disney team who wrote and produced Tarzan, and two that it is in actual fact Mrs pots and chip as well as the rest of the tea set from beauty and the beast handed down to Jane, belle’s great great great granddaughter. If the first theory is true then that’s that, but if the second theory is true then the explanation is a little more disturbing. at the end of Beauty and Beast everyone is turned back into their human forms because the beast aka prince Adam was able to get someone aka belle to fall in love with him, but if the tea set in Tarzan is Mrs pots and chip, which it does look like because of the distinctive chip in one of the cups in the set that leads to, surprise, chip getting his name, then this means that the spell the blonde enchantress cast wasn’t broken, meaning that the beast died, belle moved on or was maybe forced to marry Gaston to once again save her father, and the staff were left to live out the rest of their days as household objects. And if the beast and belle didn’t break the curse then prince Adam died which means they couldn’t have gotten married, had any children which eventually would lead the Jane theory. If this is true then this is where it gets weird. The curse cast by the blonde enchantress stated that if Adam couldn’t get someone to fall in love with him by the last petal falling on his 21st birthday then he would remain a beast forever, in turn meaning that all his staff would remain objects forever. now the curse wasn’t broken so everyone stayed objects, but the curse states that they would remain in these forms (as objects or a beast) forever, not that they would live forever, and considering Jane is meant to be at least three or four generations on from belle and Adam, if the second theory is true and they are in fact the original tea set, then in Tarzan, you are seeing the dead remains of Mrs pots, chip and whoever else was that tea set. Meaning Jane just happened to buy or acquire the literal undecomposed skeletons of the beloved characters from beauty and the beast. I don’t know about you but I would rather chose theory one, its less gross.

    To all you talkng about how Elsa got her magic: Traditionally, the first-born of every royal family in many stories will have some kind of magical abilities. As we see in Once Upon A Time, Elsa and Anna’s Aunt had Ice Powers, and was THE QUEENS SISTER, NOT THE KINGS. (This woman was the first born and was meant to be queen, but gave it up for fear she could not rule a kingdom with her powers) This proves that magic runs on the Queens side of the family. The reason the King knows what to do is because he feared Elsa would have powers, and his neice Rapunzel had once been stolen away for her powers, so he was prepared. He had dealt with this sort of thing before with his sisters-in-law and knew where to go. I still think Rapunzels mom is the King of Arendelles sister, but Rapunzels Magic was not genetic, it came from a magic flower, so the cousins both having Magics entirely coincidental.

    It’s a possibility also that Eilonwy is the Enchantress herself or her ancestor ?

    It inducted that Maleficent because of his Hornes is the Horned King’s daughter or descendant. This last is also a descendant to Chernabog.

    I notice also ressemblances concerning King Hubert and The King from Cinderella ? There is a link ?

    I had of course noticed the similarities between Belle and Jane (and the ones between Maurice and Professor Porter). So I really like the theory that there could be a connection…

      Well, no durr. But where is the fun in that? Why do you think these are called theories? Plus, it adds to the fun of Disney movies. Sure, it’s fun to watch, but it’s more fun to take a look behind the scenes and possibly uncover secrets.

    Has anyone thought that Tarzan’s mom looks like a grown up Wendy from Peter Pan? Unfortunately that can’t be the case from the movie Return to Neverland where they show how Wendy really looks as an adult at the end ):

    I believe that Tarzan is NOT the brother of Anna and Elsa. The time periods just do not match at all. However, the sunken ship in Ariel IS the ship that Anna and Elsa’s parents were traveling on to go to Rapunzel and Flynn’s wedding (a Disney exec. confirmed that the parents were definitely going to a wedding; I believe that Rapunzel is the cousin of Anna and Elsa (magic runs in the blondes in the family, and Rapunzel’s mother closely resembles the Frozen girls’ father; also, this explains the Easter egg appearance of R and F at Arendale). Geography is proof: Arendale is in Norway, Rapunzel’s kingdom is in Germany,and Ariel is between the two (Ariel story’s creator Hans Christian Anderson lived there and located story there). Ships look extremely similar, if not identical. Any differences can be located to rot. Now Jane may be or may not be the descendant of Belle; I don’t know. With the china, similar dresses, and love of books greatly suggests that they are kin somehow. Jane may be the same Jane from Peter Pan as the time periods match upbprettt well.

      No, the timelines for Jane of Peter Pan and Jane of Tarzan DO NOT match up well at all. Jane from Peter Pan was a child in WWII London. WWII was from 1939 to 1945! Jane from Tarzan was a grown woman in the early 1900s! Seriously, people.

        Actually, in an effort to be more accurate. Tarzan was set in 1889 or 1895. IMDB notes:

        “The movie is set in either the year 1889 or 1895. Various hints given throughout the movie imply this, such as a drawing of Tarzan done by Jane is dated Saturday, August 17 (both 1889 and 1895 had August 17 fall on a Saturday). Slides shown during the “Strangers Like Me” song also show the Eiffel Tower (completed in 1889), and the Statue of Liberty (completed in 1886). Porter also mentioned visiting Queen Victoria, who was ruling during both of these years.”

      Rapunzel is brunette not blonde.. she got her “powers” because of the flower they used to save her mom when she was pregnant.. People think Rapunzel is related to Anna and Elsa but she might have just been invited because she was royalty.

    I would say all the castle servants lost their human bodies to the Enchantress’ spell and their essences were trapped inside the household objects lying around the castle. That makes more sense when you consider why ALL the furniture, kitchenware, etc. was alive. Besides, if they all just transformed back from objects to human, Prince Adam would’ve had a lot a shopping to do to replace all that stuff. Once the spell was broken, all the spirits left the objects inanimate once more. Anyway, it’s pretty evident that it’s the same tea set in Tarzan. I mean, one of the cups is chipped.

    Another explanation for why a German duke would be in England is slightly more boring and involves actual history. We know from King James in Pocahontas that Disney uses real monarchs at least some of the time. After the House of Stuart that James hailed from came the House of Hanover starting with the 100% German George I. From George I onwards, the British royal family has essentially remained full blooded German and they had a habit of importing German wives, or in Queen Victoria’s case, a German husband. And since the royals did and do still inter-marry within the family again and again, everyone is a cousin of a cousin of a cousin. So a German duke would undoubtedly be related to the royal family of England and would have had every reason to settle in England as a “poor” royal relation after being disgraced in his own country. And his son or grandson visiting Africa with his daughter in tow makes perfect sense if Tarzan occurs within the late Victorian or early Edwardian era when exploring Egypt and other parts of Africa became very en vogue for the well to do.

    Well I think this makes a lot of sense but I have one big question still. From what I understood, according to the disney theory, Beauty and the beast would have to take place BEFORE the hunchback of notre dame, but as said here The Beauty and The Beast takes place in the mid-1700. So far so good, but then is where the issue comes: The Hunchback Of Notre Dame takes place in 1482 Paris. So how could this work?

    I couldn’t read all of the comments so if someone has already said this sorry
    Well, According to research beauty and the beast is set in France, 1770s-1780s. Now in 1789-1799 was the French Revolution, And belle and Prince Adam were aristocrats and would’ve been executed. If they had’ re had any children in that time, They too would’ve been executed, and belle and Adam would definitely not have had any grandchildren.
    Thanks for listening

      It is not really Mrs Potts and her children, but it looks exactly like them. The theory is that Belle and Adam had a china set made, that looked just like Mrs Potts and Chip when they were under the spell.
