Fact: We never get tired of watching Disney movies. Watching them over and over inevitably means we start noticing the clever little references and inside jokes that Disney animators hide for us eagle-eyed fans to find.
We poured through our favourite Disney animated classics to bring you these Easter eggs — some well-known, and some that blew our minds! Indulge, then share with everyone you know.
Bambi and his mother appear in this scene from The Rescuers but we’ve probably never noticed things because it’s hard to see easter eggs through our tears, which are always flowing during this part of the movie.
One day you’re overthrowing the king, the next day you’re a throw rug. Textbook case of karma, or ironic reminder to ‘Be Prepared’? You decide.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Who knew Pumbaa would make such a dashing gargoyle?
We like to imagine that all the Disney princesses are best friends, and Rapunzel and Flynn’s appearance at Elsa’s coronation only confirms this in our minds.
We’re hoping Rapunzel’s usual morning routine doesn’t include “prick finger on an enchanted spinning wheel and fall into a death-like sleep.”
The Great Mouse Detective
Lilo & Stitch
Nani is brave, smart, and fiercely loyal to those she loves — and her Mulan poster suggests she learnt from the best.
The Princess and the Frog
Do you guys think the magic carpet from Aladdin flew all the way from Agrabah to New Orleans?
Pinocchio and Pumbaa guest star in this scene in the Snuggly Duck. We really like that Pumbaa seems have acquired a nose ring. So early ’00s.
Big Hero 6
In Wreck-It Ralph, two characters from Tangled make cameos: Maximus, and Vladimir, one of the thugs from the Snuggly Duckling.
