Animated with wide eyes and the other facial features appearing smaller, some Reddit users have compared Aunt Cass to the likes of Disney’s Rapunzel or Anna from Frozen. A popular theory on Reddit is that Cass closely resembles an aged version of Rapunzel, right after the princess cuts her hair and transforms it into a brunette bob.

Why are Aunt Cass memes suddenly appearing?

Predominantly appearing on Reddit by Disney fans, Aunt Cass memes are primarily being used to humour how conventionally attractive the fictional character is. A photoshopped version of Cass with an edited body has recently surfaced on the internet, which is likely what reignited the popularity of Aunt Cass memes, despite the film’s release date being seven years prior.
