Did Disney movie predict coronavirus?
It's the latest conspiracy theory consuming the internet - and Disney's Rapunzel is at the centre of it.
Despite being made in 2010, some people are convinced that the creators of hit Disney movie Tangled knew the coronavirus was coming, The Comma reported.
Not only was Rapunzel locked safely away from society in her iconic tower, but the town she was hiding from was called Corona.
Twitter users couldn't help but see the similarities.
Wait a minute here...In tangled, Rapunzel is trapped in a tower (quarantine) and hidden from the kingdom named Corona... Did anybody else realize this? #Disney #DisTwitter #DisneyPlus pic.twitter.com/TPmY1kPSjt— Jared Talbot (@JaredTalbot_) March 14, 2020
Not only did Twitter users find Tangled's plot line eerily similar to the current pandemic, but also thought the movie had some good tips for how to survive self-isolation.
From cooking and cleaning to painting and even ventriloquy, Rapunzel appears content in her own company.
Twitter users also hinted that self-iso could be the chance for a budding romance … though they didn't exactly specify how.
Corona is an island kingdom and the birthplace of Rapunzel in Disney's 2010 animated feature film, Tangled.— Jon Wensley (@jonwensley) March 20, 2020
After a significant period of isolation it is also where Rapunzal met her future husband/prince.
Other conspiracy have also taken over the internet, including New Zealanders who thought the lockdown had been called to make it easier to put up 5G towers.
