'Frozen' Might Have A Dark Secret You Didn't Notice

When it comes to "Frozen," it's hard to keep anything hidden. There's an entire special about the making of the film, the cast has done a bajillion interviews and, c'mon, the whole movie is based on the fact that Elsa can't hide her ice powers and sassy attitude. Even with all that, it turns out "Frozen" may have a dark secret that Disney would probably rather conceal.

The Theory: Kristoff's outfit is made out of reindeer skin (possibly from Sven's mom).

Sorry, Sven.

Redditor superclaude1 has uncovered the dark truth about Kristoff: at least part of his outfit seems to be made of fur, most likely reindeer fur. As if that weren't enough, it may have been a reindeer Sven knew:

"In the context of the story, it all fits together," superclaude1 writes. "The ice harvesters must have killed Sven's mother, leaving a baby Sven for Kristoff to look after, and giving him the pelt to wear. This explains why Sven is so close to Kristoff too, and why Kristoff still wears the same pelt. The smell reminds Sven of his mum."

The theory actually explains a lot. We learn why Sven is an orphan and the reason he likes Kristoff so much. But still, that's pretty messed up, bro. Could this really be true?

The Evidence:

Kristoff is said to be part of the Scandinavian people known as the Sámi. These are Norway's indigenous people and known for their reindeer herding. According to Official Travel Guide of Norway, reindeer are "central to Sámi culture." They rely on the animals for everything from meat to transportation and, yes, even fur.

Adding to the evidence, as Reddit points out, the pelt Kristoff appears to wear looks too big to be wolf, and parts of it seem oddly similar to Sven:

As far as the second part of the theory, numerous sources confirm scent can play a big part in how a young animal recognizes its mom. Does this mean Kristoff is wearing a Mama Sven coat to trick his reindeer into liking him?

Disney did not immediately reply to The Huffington Post's request for comment. But now that this theory is out there, it's hard to let it go.
