  • Lion king 2 can go die like Mufasa! I have a theory, how did scar choose Kovu as the chosen one but scar was dead, and why did the lions support scar even though he treated them bad and how did they know what scar was when he died and the lions was no where in the end of the movie scene. So this might be one of the hardest theory because of the 3 questions leading to more question and more researching. I need your help with this one.

  • Mickey just giving matpat a death look to stop looking into its lore and work ethic. Anyways I have 2 film theory questions based off of the new Tom and Jerry movie. 1: How much would all the damages in that movie cost. 2: Could the mouse trap Tom made actually work and if so how long would it take to set it up?


  • This man predicted the lore...

  • Gotta love the fact that we ain't getting another origin story

  • my favrite gravity falls carater is bill

  • You do kong skull island and goji vs monke but no kotm 😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤

  • Also in the beginning when she tries to get donkey to talk he refuses. Which is likely how he escaped the island able to talk. Pretending to be a regular donkey. Then later once he is with shrek he doesnt stop talking because he is happy to still be able to. I wouldnt blame him for not wanting to go back to the island its traumatic and seems like he was bullied as well. He may also not realise the amount of kids this is happening to since he was a child.

  • Film Theorists: Why Hamilton SCARES Hollywood! Me: No NO NOOOOO NO YOU CAN'T DO THIS TO ME WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY My sister: 😐😑😐😑 MatPat reading this post: what the heck !?

  • "Green is not a creative color" yellow dude ate the bird bc he was green. Just my theory for the kitchen video forgot what episode

  • Me watching this in 2021 when Duck Tales is over. Me: I wish they made more than 3 seasons😞😞😞

  • I really think you should look into Starr Park from brawl stars and the whole lore behind supercells games and what is going on behind the curtain of their but this could be a game food and film theory since they have foods games and a little advert

  • was that actually your college?

  • To mat pat.. I just want to say thank you for making statistics and evidence fun for your viewers to learn in a way that is interesting. Thank you for spending time making these videos for us to enjoy. Thank you for everything you have changed how I view the jobs I am interested in doing when the time comes. You might not get told this a lot, as a NOlongr, but THANK YOU!!!!

  • mythological fact is a boring name ngl

  • 15:39 it’s the Immediate Murder PROFESSIONALS!!! Not the Immediate Murder Patrol

  • video idea: you cover crazy theories on the internet

  • I think it's safe to say that it's not the same cannon as Pinocchio. or it might be fairly far into the future of Pinocchio and he may have got turned back into a puppet at some point. Geppetto would never have tried to sell Pinocchio off within the original story. But an older Pinoccio that's lost his wish and maybe became a lazy deadbeat as a result, I could see this potentially happening with. Pinoccio acts a fair bit older in Shrek than he does in his story, and in Shrek 2 when he actually gets turned into a real boy temporarily, when he turns back he's not as crushed as I'd imagine a child who's just had his dream dangled in front of his face and ripped away from him would be. Instead its the sort of reaction you might expect from an adult who's experienced it before, more mildly disappointed. A child would be upset over that *for days* . Also.... there's the thong scene. I vaguely recall Pinoccio drinking alcohol in one of the Shrek movies at some point which, if true, by itself would pretty much prove Shrek Pinoccio is not the same as stage 2 Pinoccio. If this happened after, it's very possible pleasure island has just been taken down already.

  • Isn't Elsa the queen

  • for me, this is the true history.

  • That's impossible because the law of weirdness magnetism

  • Me who don’t think the emojis movie was not that bad: Bakcs out of the room

  • Wtf is that Harry Potter photo

  • 10:13, matpat busting out the ray lewis lines😂

  • they chose a panda so the Chinese will love the movie and give them money

  • I would love if mat did a Hilda theory

  • My theory is that cars is just a big dream because other pixar movies make sense and have some realism but this one... has no realism and most likely is a dream from a child who wishes to race when they grow or love cars...

  • These intros keep getting more and more creative

  • Did y’all notice at 5:46 where Mayo at was in the lions back pass

  • Matpat: not your first time at the rodeo it's NOlong! the people that just got a NOlong account and watched whatever is popular: ._.

  • The youngest tribute to win ever was 14 and extremely skilled. Not a single 13 or 14 year old won in 75 years. I think that should say something.

  • please do a theory on autodale! its a dystopian youtube series that i really enjoy! or at the very least, check it out. you'd enjoy it!

  • 9.69 million 69. Heh. Y’all already know.

  • the only reason im here is to read the comments about how wrong matpat was. Honestly i never even watched the video after i heard his opinion about something that wasnt even out yet

  • One punch man would win

  • funny enough, here in paraguay theres a brand called "Mickey" who uses the same picture as Mickey Mouse. Disney has been moving soil and oceans to destroy this company but i can confirm that till the date of this comment, the company called Mickey stills up and running. The reason of this is because Mickey (the company) bought the rights of the logo and name. So Disney cant really do much in legal terms.

  • Can you do a theory on how fast Ultra instinct is?

  • I just watched the movie yesterday and it was great I hope they make king Kong vs mecha godzilla

  • “I AM A LOIN” 2.. 1...

  • the intro script deserves fifty freaking _awards_

  • Disney stole a lot of things like star wars and pixar

  • What you're forgetting is that her hair can heal and she continuously sings the life song, so it wouldn't fall out until her hair gets cut. And even then, her tear are healing, so I don't think herself can actually get hurt or sick ever.

  • Omega

  • scar ate mufasa to hide the evdendce

  • Spongebob is not adopted

  • This video would be over in a minute if you just focused on the fact that Finding Nemo came out in 2003 and the book came out in 2002. Movies take years to make and there is no way this was plagiarized.

  • Theory would Anna go insane after spending years locked in the castle completely alone
