Nine Things You Might Not Know About Disney Movies

Disney movies have been around for a long time—which means they have a rich history. Chances are good that even if you grew up watching them, you still don't know everything there is to know about Disney movies.

BuzzFeedVideo brings us a bunch of Disney fun facts that you might find interesting, like:

  • Who Ariel and Aladdin are modeled after
  • How The Lion King was originally Titled 'King of The Jungle' until someone figured out that lions don't live in jungles
  • What songs were almost cut from The Little Mermaid and The Lion King—one of which went on to win an Oscar
  • How Walt Disney got a very special type of Oscar award
  • What some of the dwarfs in Snow White were almost called
  • How many black spots are in 101 Dalmatians
  • How all the Disney princesses are teenagers—with the exception of Elsa, who is 21. Weird!

Mostly, I'm taken aback by the fact Aladdin is supposed to look like Tom Cruise. I watched that movie nearly every day for a few months when I was a kid, but now I'm feeling like movie's charm has changed for me. Noooooo.
