Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: The film takes place in the same universe as Film/TheCrow]]
Crows are ubiquitous, and signify some interaction with the the Land of the Dead, and appear to be living creatures on both sides of the veil. The spell that Elder Gutknecht used to send Victor and Emily back to the Land of the Living comes from the egg if a crow.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Victoria is adopted.]]
While Victor and his father look and act alike, Victoria does not look or act like either parent. Victoria could have been the orphaned daughter of a fellow old money family who was taken in by the Everglots to have a successor. Victoria being an adopted ward rather than a blood relative would also explain her parents' harshness towards her, while Victor has kinder parents. After all, in Victorian times, adoption was less common and not the intimate process it is today.


It might sound weird, but think about it! Out of all the people in the land of the dead, Emily is the only one who doesn't seem to be having an awesome time. It might not have the decor most people picture Heaven having, but the residents can do anything and not feel pain, freely communicate with animals (which many people think would be awesome in Heaven), and when Mayhew gets there, he even says that he never felt better in his life. At least one resident (Elder Gutknecht) has expressed confusion as to why they anyone would want to leave. True, Lord Barkis doesn't seem to deserve to go to Heaven, but we never actually ''see'' him going to the same place as the other dead, we only see him being dragged off to some [[NothingIsScarier unknown fate]].

** Perhaps that Emily could be ''the'' Emily, reincarnated (as some other tropers have stated that the end could be either heaven ''or'' reincarnation).

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG:The Maggot, the Black Widow, and various Ravens can travel between the Lands of the Living at the Dead freely.]]
Compare and contrast the Cat from Coraline. Although, unlike said Cat, the Maggot is observed speaking in the Land of Mortals and appears to be understood by at least one living human.

Added DiffLines:

*Bonejangles isn't likely to be that, but he would indeed be out of place, so there are a few possibilities coming to my mind: 1° He was a jazz singer from somewhere else who just happened to die in this village while he was on a trip. It has been stated that it's the place where you're buried that defines where you wake up in the Underworld, not obligatorily the place where you spent most of your life. 2° He was form the village but not a jazz singer: he's been dead for quite a while, and traveled to other towns of the Underworld. He came to meet some dead american jazz singer, was interested in that, and then came back to his hometown. 3° He's one of the american dead jazz singers I was talking about, ended up upon his death in the underworld town behind his hometown but decided to emigrate to England.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG:Some of the citizens of the Land of the Dead were never actually alive to begin with]]
The Maggot and the Black Widow spiders come to mind, since they wouldn't talk if they were simply reanimated versions of their respective species like Scraps. There's also Bonejangles, who, if he was alive to begin with, would've looked out of place in the movie's setting of a Victorian village, wearing a bowler hat and being a jazz singer (that, and assuming that it isn't just a nickname, his name "Bonejangles" is probably something that no one in the Land of the Living would have been called).

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG:The Land of the Dead is actually [[Anime/SpaceDandy Planet Limbo]] set in the Victorian era]]

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG:The Maggot being a Creator/PeterLorre impersonation was intentional...]]
... and it was originally going to be accompanied by impersonations of [[Creator/BorisKarloff Boris]] [[Film/{{Frankenstein1931}} Karloff]] and [[Film/TheWolfMan1941 Lon Chaney Jr.]], to make for a shout-out to the ''Series/{{Route 66}}'' episode "Lizard's Leg & Owlet's Wing".


* Doubles as a bit of FridgeBrilliance and CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming when you consider that in one version of the Jewish tale this movie was based on, the living bride names her first daughter after the dead bride to honor her.

* Add in Nightmare Before Christmas as a sequel to The Corpse Bride. Tim Burton once said "All stories have a beginning, a middle, and an end, but not always in that order."

[[WMG:Victor and Victoria will have a daughter named Emily]]
Emily was very important to both of them and this would make for a HeartwarmingMoment.
