20 Disney Movies That Are Based on Bizarre and R-rated Stories

Have you ever wondered how Disney came up with such wonderful stories? Even their oldest films still resonate with children and adults to this day.

For the most part, Disney stories are adaptations of classic fairy tales and novels from decades and sometimes centuries ago. And many of these, as it turns out, are actually horrifying, depressing, and just plain weird.

According to Disney, Rapunzel lives in a tower with her super controlling mom, Mother Gothel, but all she wants is to go out and explore. When a handsome, charming fugitive, Flynn Rider, discovers her tower and helps her escape, the two explore the kingdom and fall in love. She finds out that shes actually a princess, they get married, and you guessed it live happily ever after.

In the original story, however, Rapunzel and her Prince arent so lucky. Or clever, for that matter.

The Prince and Rapunzels secret signal to each other is when she dangles her hair out the window of her tower. Subtle! So when Dame Gothel finds out that theyve been secretly meeting and have fallen in love, she cuts off Rapunzels hair and uses it to lure the Prince up the tower.

When he realizes hes been tricked, he jumps from the towerand breaks his fall on a bed of thorns with his EYES, and is blinded. The end.


The Hunchback of Notre Dame

According to Disney, Quasimodo, a deformed bell ringer, and Captain Phoebus, a handsome guard, rescue the beautiful gypsy Esmerelda from execution, and Quasimodo comes to accept that Phoebus and Esmerelda are in love. He is accepted by the outside world and applauded for his heroic actions.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame was written by Victor Hugo also known for Les Miserables who didnt exactly write happy, sappy love stories.

In the original novel, Quasimodo is angry that Esmerelda doesnt love him back so angry, in fact, that he betrays her to Frollo, who has her hung in the public square.

After her death, Quasimodofeels pretty guilty, so he throws Frollo off the cathedral and sneaks into Esmereldas grave. He then curls himself around her dead body and slowly starves to death. Their bodies are discovered 18 months later, and when an attempt is made to separate the two, Quasimodos bones turn to dust.


Peter Pan

The 1953 Disney movie shows Wendy Darling and her brothers, George and Michael, whisked away to Neverland with Peter Pan, where they meet the Lost Boyschildren like them who never left Neverland. The Darlings, the Lost Boys and Peter Pan all fight the evil pirate Captain Hook, but when Wendy and her brothers miss their parents and invite Peter and the Lost Boys to come live with them, the Lost Boys and Peter Pan decide theyd rather stay in Neverland. The Darlings return home to London, safe and sound.

The Disney movie is pretty faithful to the original play by J.M. Barrie; there are a few different plot points, however.

In the original play, the Lost Boys do come live with the Darlings, and Wendy returns to Neverland every Spring to visit Peter, until she grows up and cant see him anymore. But the biggest difference between Disney’s tale and the original is what happens to Lost Boys when they get too old to live in Neverland anymore…

Peter Pan murders them.

Yes, when Lost Boys seem like theyre starting to grow up, which is against the rules, Peter Pan has to thin them out.

This whole Neverland thing is starting to sound a bit like a cult
