Genie is back to life with the voice of late Robin Williams! Almost 10 years after the actor passed away, Disney decided to leave AI aside and delight fans with the chance to hear Williams himself as the beloved Aladdin character one more time in an extraordinary project.
While Hollywood makes live-action remakes of famous animated movies where the choice of actors doesn’t always make the audience happy, we decided to conduct our own casting to choose actors who would fit perfectly into some Disney remakes. But we only considered famous couples for the starring roles. Let’s see what we got.
Disney and its movies have defined our childhood. We’ve all spent family movie afternoons and hours in front of the television watching our favorite movie on a loop until we knew the script by heart. Movies like The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, or Aladdin are already classics that we play to our children with a hint of nostalgia, but they are not mistake-free. That’s why we’ve used our eagle eye to bring you a list of details that could fulfill the well-known phrase: “I’ll believe it when I see it.”
There are animated films that remain deep in our hearts. Either because we wore out the VHS to watch them over and over again as children, or because we are aware of the new releases and watch them with a more adult perspective. However, the work that animators do to bring us these movies is so exhaustive that they often miss certain details that only very observant eyes can identify.
When we are children, we could enjoy movies without analyzing too much about what we see. But when we watch them again as adults, it is possible to discover some hidden jokes or questions that escape all logic and make us laugh. For example, why don’t we ever wonder what’s wrong with Cinderella’s foot?
Although Disney princesses are the main focus of viewers’ attention, the princes also deserve recognition. Over the decades, there have been several changes in the way they have been portrayed, going from being the generic Prince Charming to heroes with their own names and personalities. This is how they show details that reflect part of the plot and make them as relevant as their companions.
Every actor wants to be recognized in different corners of the world, to the point that the public remembers him or her just by hearing their name. However, it has happened more than once that from other disciplines, there are famous and outstanding people whose name and surname is similar or even the same as that of other actors or actresses. The most surprising thing is that these namesakes are not actual relatives.
In every movie, there’s a wardrobe, but some are limited to just having dresses and others have “DRESSES” — true works of textile art that prevail in our memory more than the plot of the films themselves. Those are the magical designs that we present in this collection, garments from feature films that have not only not gone unnoticed, but that were a vital part of the story as if they were another character.
Most families are incomplete in the Disney universe. Although Disney movies are widely loved by their audience with their beautiful heartwarming stories, it is easy to notice that most of the families are incomplete and that mothers are not present. This may have left you wondering why such an important person is missing.
Sometimes, cartoons can touch on very serious problems just like movies. Directors and scriptwriters also pay attention to little details, plot twists, and characters. And some curious moments can only be noticed by viewers that have a lot of experience doing so.
When new computer technology appeared at the end of the last century, the process of movie production changed completely. Directors of iconic blockbuster films realized that a new era had begun, and as a result, very few movies without special effects exist today, even in the drama category.
We love to watch great movies again and again. And even if you think that you know your favorite film by heart, there can still be details you’ve missed, such as a Disney castle that was built by a flying carpet while the Genie was talking with Aladdin, a hint about the development of the plot from the Harry Potter franchise, and discreet jokes in Quentin Tarantino’s films.
Disney movies are much more than time machines capable of bringing our childhoods back, leaving an aftertaste of nostalgia. In fact, they’re all linked and have small details that are hidden from viewers who haven’t seen all these movies many times. But even if you’ve seen a lot of these films multiple times, there are so many hidden details in them, you’ve likely missed a handful.
We grew up watching Disney’s animated films: tales full of wizards, princesses and princes, and enchanted creatures were a common thing in our childhood. Of course, that means that when a new version of these stories is released on the big screen, we’re all dying to go to the movies and watch. Let alone if the new movie features some world-renowned stars! Over the years, we have been able to enjoy different live-action adaptations featuring some of our favorite actors.
There are few people in the world who weren’t impressed by the brave Mufasa from The Lion King or the red-haired beauty Merida from Brave. Just like many other fictional characters, these people seem bold, honest, and flawless. But if we dig a little deeper, we can actually see less pleasant features that tend to go unnoticed by many.
There are endless ways to spend valuable time with your kids. Once in a while, it’s also a good choice to have them look at life through your eyes, complete with the delights you used to have in your childhood, like being raised on Disney movies and shows. It would be a joy of a ride to go through it all with your kids.
We were all born and raised watching Disney movies. Nobody could have won Jasmine’s heart, except Aladdin. And, only Simba deserved to be the king of the jungle, not Scar. But imagine, if the roles were actually the other way around. What if Jasmine married Abu, or Scar became king?
It’s been a while since Miguel from Coco won our hearts with his love for singing despite his family trying to stop him, or Carl and his entourage traveled miles and miles to fulfill Ellie’s lifelong dream in Up. While we reminisce about the adventures these characters took us along on, we also ponder on the minute, interesting details that moviemakers put into these films.
Some films have a straightforward and clear plot and others surprise us with open endings. Still, in almost all cases, there’s room for creativity. Some fans really let their imagination fly and have come up with theories that radically reinterpret many of the stories we saw on the big screen, like WALL-E, Joker, Harry Potter, and even Toy Story. All of them are the center of some interesting hypotheses that, as strange and crazy as they may seem, could cause you to watch your favorite movies with different eyes.
Needless to say, we’ve become less attentive over the years. Our attention span has decreased to just up to 8 seconds. Of course, there are still those who don’t miss the slightest details but we doubt that even they would notice some of the surprising hidden secrets in our favorite cartoons.
Some people believe in the theory that Disney has created a huge universe in which all of the stories they tell us take place. This means that all of the stories and characters can be somehow connected, and fans love to look for them, giving a great meaning to all of the Easter eggs. A lot of theories have been discussed, and some of them are so mind-blowing and convincing that you start to think that everything is not really that easy in the Disney universe.
