A lovely homage to Michelangelo. It's but a small section of the greater work, but the zoomed in image adds to the effect of this piece...

DuckTales Fridge Logic (spoilers)

Sat Aug 18, 2018, 9:50 PM


Just a few thoughts that I added on the TV Tropes page for the season 1 finale of DuckTales.

Fridge Horror: It’s revealed that Lena is the shadow of Magica in living form. She was created during Scrooge and Magica’s battle on Mt. Vesuvius 15 years prior to the events of the series, as a result of Scrooge trapping Magica in his number one dime. Lena is her own physical entity, with her own will and personality, and exists just fine alongside Magica’s physical form. Since she is this, and was produced from an extension of Magica, she is, in all relevant senses of the term, Magica’s daughter. The titles of aunt and niece were likely established so that neither Magica nor Lena could become emotionally invested in their relationship, yet Magica could maintain authority and control over Lena.

Fridge Brilliance: Scrooge is essentially Lena’s father, though not biologically. Even though there was no natural/traditional procreation of a duckling involved (as there is absolutely no love lost between Scrooge and Magica), and Lena is instead the result of magical processes, “born” as the 15-year-old we meet in the series, Scrooge’s actions were nonetheless the trigger for Lena’s creation. He may not have contributed his DNA, but he did ultimately cause Lena to exist. Thus Lena already was and is a part of Scrooge’s family, even without her current connection to Webby.

Rivera Family Tree - Corrected
When third parties publish promotional and supplemental materials for a film typos are not uncommon. These errors range from misspelled names to incorrect labels. Such is the case for the Rivera family tree as presented in the Coco novelization, "A Story about Music, Shoes and Family." On that family tree, Gloria is incorrectly listed as the daughter of Franco and Elena, while Carmen is listed as Berto's wife. This led to some confusion as to which tía is which, since in that same novel, certain lines of dialogue the audience associated with Berto's wife are credited to Gloria. So fans asked director Lee Unkrich which tía was which. He pointed to the woman with the bun in her hair and said her name was Gloria, and then to the heavyset woman and said her name was Carmen. He did NOT specify which of them was a blood Rivera. But he didn't need to. Any discerning fan who pondered that information long enough would come to the conclusion that the family tree (again, published by a third party without Unkrich or Molina's input) is wrong. But most fans just assume that the family tree is correct, and by extension, they apparently believe that Gloria is adopted and Berto has an Oedipus complex. Which, if Sigmud Freud had been Mexican, would be a plausible complexity to add to this film (they made a big deal out of Frida's papaya imagery, after all, and the woman herself would openly admit that stuff is as Freudian as it gets). But as Freud was not Mexican, I seriously doubt Berto would choose a wife who looks like his mother.

There is not a single official, film-original sign indicating that Gloria is anything other than Berto's wife and the mother of his children. For starters, she is usually placed close to him whenever the family is gathered, such as in the promo materials for the film or the mural proudly displayed in Pixar Pier at California Adventure. She is always the adult holding onto the twins in these family portraits. And most telling of all, she is present in the original design for the family, before Benny was twinned and Carmen was added. She is stated in a bonus feature to be Luisa's sister, and the context of that statement suggests it is complete and literal; the film crew did not mean her to be Luisa's sister-in-law. She is Luisa's hermana, not her cuñada. And, of course, she looks nothing like any of the blood Riveras. If one sketches Gloria and Luisa side by side, their shared features become apparent.

Carmen doesn't have a single line in the film. This is because she was a last minute addition, and they didn't have time to really write her in. She's just kind of...there. She has no purpose in the film. Manny, at least, exists in order to give a high energy toddler someone to constantly interact with in the film. And the two of them make for a nice tie to Imelda's brothers. But Carmen is probably only there because the Riveras need a somewhat unbroken female line for...some reason (Berto's probably going to inherit the shop anyway, given Carmen doesn't seem to have the personality for it, so I really don't understand this). But Carmen is never seen interacting with any of the children, and is usually seen standing separately from Berto, closer to Elena or Franco. She does interact with Berto in the film, but she remains fairly separate from the family for the most part. Carmen also looks quite a lot like Elena, with Franco's cowlick and a fair mixture of his features.

So since the only family tree available right now is the incorrect one (and trees made based on that incorrect tree), I've decided to submit to the internet the correct family tree, showing the official relationship of each family member.
