“Ariel, listen to me. The human world is a mess.” – Sebastian, The Little Mermaid

  1. It was expected that Snow White would be a massive bomb in the cinema. However, it ended up being a success much to everyone’s surprise.

  4. Robin Williams recorded Genie’s lines up to 20 different ways. Williams didn’t have a ton of time to spend on recording sessions so he just performed each line in as many different styles as he could create during the sessions he had. The staff then decided later which versions of the lines they preferredScreen Shot 2018-02-23 at 11.25.42 pm.png
  5. Before ‘Hakuna Matata’ was conceived, in its place was a song about eating bugs called ‘He’s Got it All Worked Out.” However, it was decided that this particular song was a bad idea and they got rid of it.

  12. Jeffrey Katzenberg, a previous chairman of Walt Disney Studios, wanted to scrap ‘Part of Your World’ from The Little Mermaid. The story goes that when they were showing the movie to their test audience, a kid spilled his bucket of popcorn during the song. From this accident Katzenberg determined that the child must have been so bored that his motor functions ended up shutting down and that this is why he dropped his popcorn. However, the rest of the staff fought against Katzenberg because they wanted to keep the song in the movieScreen Shot 2018-02-23 at 11.30.33 pm.png

Come for the pop culture. Stay for the bad grammar.


  1. Disney has many issues but at least their stories are mostly lead by females, which back then was like finding an unicorn in a forest.
    Jackie Chan truly the mvp for doing VA and singing dang 👏👏
    Robin Williams is so amazing, I’m still sad he left us 😦

    What has Disney against family and sisters shsjsh 😹

    That’s the stupidest reason to try to remove a song from a movie, maybe the kids hands were simply greasy from the butter in the popcorn, it’s not that deep smh.

    1. Jackie Chan is just amazing and has my upmost respect.
      Same… Williams did so many awesome things!
      And there’s no family because if there was then the characters would be stopped from doing half of the things they do, and then there’d be no movie XD


      1. That’s true about the families, but it’s also sad when most of their characters are all orphans just for the sake of plot 😹😹😹

      1. It’s even more embarrassing since Lion King became the more popular movie. Some animators are often “punished” by being put in the Lion King production, while others are begged to be with Pocahontas knowing it’d be big. They were all wrong. hahaha
