Over the weekend, an interesting tale that explained some details about the missing backstory of Toy Story surfaced, and while it's been debunked by Pixar, it still makes for a great fan theory. The story is as beautiful as it is depressing. This works because apparently, all Pixar fan theories have to be depressing. Lots of Pixar movies have apparent plot holes or missing details, and for some reason, every time a fan tries to fill in the gaps, it's with a story that's just as heartbreakingly beautiful and sad as the movies themselves.

Pixar movies seem to spawn more fan theories than many other franchises, and for some reason, none of them end with "happily ever after." Instead, they're all about people dying or other depressing things. Here are a few of our favorites that we love, even though they make us want to break out a half gallon of ice cream and one spoon.

Finding Nemo

Nemo Died At The Beginning Of The Movie

Finding Nemo starts with one of the saddest moments in all of Pixar, an attack that kills Marlon's wife and nearly every one of his children. Only one survives. Unless it didn't survive. This theory postulates that all of the eggs were actually eaten, and the movie takes place in Marlon's subconscious as he deals with the aftermath. The theory argues that the movie is actually about Marlon dealing with the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, despair, and acceptance. Marlon doesn't want Nemo to go to school, gets angry with him for swimming too far, believes he can rescue his son, sees him get flushed, and then finally, decides to let go and accept his son, or in this case, the loss of him.
