9 Shocking Hidden Messages In Disney Movies

9 Shocking Hidden Messages In Disney Movies


IIt’s fair to say that in the world of animated
films, Disney and Pixar will always be the dream jobs of most animators and storytellers.
And once they get there, the men and women of the studio are eager to show their love
for older films, or new ones still under development. The easiest way? By planting clues, Easter
eggs, and secret shout-outs within their very own movies. Here are Screen Rant’s 10 Hidden
Messages in Disney Movies. Aladdin
Pixar’s CG movies and shared universe may be a modern invention, but Disney films giving
nods to their colleagues is nothing new. When Aladdin helped Disney climb back to the top
of the animated world, it made sure to give some credit to one of Disney’s greats. When
the Sultan is stacking his toys out of boredom, make sure you catch the plush version of the
Beast from Beauty and The Beast, not even hidden in the stack. Big Hero 6 
The policeman scene in this Disney movie is jampacked with easter eggs and references,
connecting it to everything from Frozen to Bolt. But the name of the police officer is
a message in itself: Sergeant Gerson, as in the late Daniel Gerson, the writer of the
film along with Monster, Inc. and Monsters University, injected into the CG world as
a joke most viewers won’t even catch. Brother Bear
It may not have been as warmly received as some of the Disney movies that preceded or
followed it, but Brother Bear made sure to offer some credit to the movie released by
Pixar in the same year. When the movie’s human stars are fishing, just a single frame or
two shows that Nemo, the missing clownfish is visible in their net, before a mammoth
helps him make his escape. Lilo and Stitch
There isn’t much in common between the story of a visiting alien creature and a Chinese
daughter pretending to be a boy in order to defend her family, but the makers of Lilo
& Stitch were clearly fans of Disney’s Mulan anyway. A playful reference is made by the
restaurant Mulan Wok in town, but made blatantly clear when Lilo’s sister Nani is shown to
have a poster for the movie in her bedroom. Disney women gotta stick together. Princess and The Frog
Although it’s one of the few Disney princess stories set in America, the ties are strongest
between the Princess and the Frog and Disney’s Aladdin. Not only has Genie’s lamp made it
all the way to North America, but even Aladdin’s trusty flying carpet can be seen in the background
of one wide shot of New Orleans. But it wasn’t just past easter eggs included
in the Louisiana adventure, but a hint of what was to come. You’ll have to look closely,
and you’ll catch a copy of Rapunzel on Tiana’s bookshelf. Before the title was changed to
Tangled, Disney was set to release their follow-up with that same name. Clearly, the animators
never got the message. Robin Hood
Disney’s Robin hood remains something special for its world populated only by human-like
animals. But the love story at its heart is the exact same as any other. Which is probably
why the carriage that Robin and Marian ride off in at the film’s conclusion is the exact
same one that took Cinderella and Prince Charming away after their wedding. A subtle sign that
people or animals, it was true love, through and through. Cars
The world of Cars is filled to the brim with inside jokes, tongue in cheek car puns, and
references to nearly every other Pixar movie ever made. But the number of star Lightning
McQueen – 95 – is a reference to the studio itself, with Toy Story releasing in 1995,
making them household names overnight. The same number even makes an appearance in Toy
Story 2 on the front of the train in the opening sequence. Wreck-it Ralph
Few expected Disney to turn their story of a video game villain turned hero into a critical
and commercial success, but just as much credit was earned by Paperman, the short film which
preceded it in theaters. It earned Disney its first animated short Oscar since 1970,
but fans may still miss the easter egg in the movie itself. Take a close look at the
bulletin board of the Bad-Anon meeting, and you’ll spot the exact piece of paper from
the short – red lipstick and all. Tangled
Nobody, and we mean nobody, expected Disney’s Tangled to become one of the studio’s biggest
hits, kicking off a second renaissance of digitally-animated Disney films. Luckily,
some of Disney’s most beloved mascots were able to see the movie up close. During the
angellic musical number at the Snuggle Duckling, keep an eye peeled for both Pinocchio observing
the action from the rafters, and even a warthog mixed in with the crowd. When you see a warthog
in a Disney film, it’s a safe bet that it’s one more animator paying credit to the flatulent
hog… even if Timon is nowhere to be seen. Those are just a few of the clever easter
eggs, homages, and hidden jokes snuck into Disney’s biggest hits, but which ones are
your favorite to spot? Let us know in the comments, and remember to subscribe to our
