This Might Be the Greatest Disney Mashup Ever Made
Watch and you'll see, someday I'll be part of your world!
Most of us who grew up watching Disney movies understand what it's like to stare at a screen in complete awe and wonderment at the incredible spectacle that is unfolding before our eyes. From Snow White to Finding Nemo, Disney has a way of tickling our funny bones while tugging at our heartstrings, which is why they're still making successful movies today. Whether you're a diehard Golden Disney, Disney Renaissance, or Disney Dark Age fan, this amazing mashup by Lindsay McCutcheon is a must-see for anyone who loves Disney flicks.
The latest resurgence of quality animated films from Disney, which includes Wreck it Ralph, Frozen, and Tangled, is what some are calling Disney's Second Renaissance, which is quite a compliment considering the iconic films that make up the first one.
Back in the 80s, Disney was in a bit of a weird slump, churning out films that didn't seem to fare too well, like Oliver and Company, The Great Mouse Detective, and The Fox and the Hound. But one film, made right at the end of the decade in 1989, came in and brought Disney into one of its most praised and highly regarded eras, the Disney Renaissance, and that movie was The Little Mermaid.
Because I grew up during the 90s, identifying with the Disney princesses was kind of a right of passage for many kids my age (for me, it was learning how to dominate with a sai like Raphael in TMNT), and so, naturally, I'm a total Disney Renaissance fan. Yes, I wanted a pet capuchin like Aladdin did, and yes, I had a very confusing crush on Simba because he was voiced by JTT, and yes, I can literally recite The Little Mermaid from start to finish.
McCutcheon's mashup, with all of its fantastic editing, reminds us of how exciting and fun it is to watch a Disney movie. Disney movies aren't always great, but when they are they're spectacularly great and end up changing your childhood forever. Magical!
