*** So far so good, the movie's cult following keeps getting bigger.


* There's a [[https://www.amazon.com/Cock-Doodle-Dudley-Bill-Peet/dp/0395657458 children's book]] with a story which this Troper always applied to this movie. The sun doesn't actually NEED a rooster crowing to rise; it just likes that roosters do that. So just like in the book, when Chanticleer stopped crowing altogether, the sun's feelings were hurt, and it decided not to rise out of spite. When Chanticleer crowed again, the sun forgave him and rose.

* Chanticleer's crowing was the sun's alarm clock. Once, the sun woke up early, and decided to go back to sleep. She kept sleeping, until the [[PowerOfRock]] woke her up.

* But why would The Grand Duke want a movie he stars in to flop?





to:

\n** Actually, it probably wasn't up to Don Bluth who would be Edmond. Chances are it was the studio's decision. Don Bluth is smart enough to not just hire someone based completely on cuteness.



The rest of the movie is the bizarre afterlife he created for himself.

* The Duke seems to hint at this theory being true, IIRC; when Edmund asks how the Duke became real, the Duke simply reminds him of the moment where Edmund touched the illustration of the Duke in the storybook. At the end of the film, all Edmund has to do to hang out with Chanti again is touch the picture of him on the cover.

Added DiffLines:

** Perhaps during this lucid moment before he relapses and dies he interprets everything being back to normal now that he's awake, with him walking around and talking to his mother at home, with the mess from the tree gone. In reality he's laying in a hospital bed with his mother at his side.



to:

* Another "comforting" aspect to this theory; the BigLippedAlligatorMoment where Edmond thinks Peepers is dead and he sort of retreats into his own brain. Was this Edmond slipping out of his coma into death for a few seconds? Or perhaps just having a brain seizure while comatose?
