About This Quiz

Ask your friends which Disney movie is the best, and you can bet a fight will break out. People say the only things guaranteed in life are death and taxes, but that's wrong; the only things guaranteed are death, taxes and an intense passion for Disney movies that nobody seems to outgrow. And why would anyone want to? Disney movies are a treasure, the representation of a generation's nostalgia and first encounter with vivid animations, thoughtful life lessons and the realization of boundless imagination.

By some estimates, Disney has accumulated a massive $18 billion from its Marvel movies alone. And what's more, five Disney movies have earned over $1 billion just in 2019: "Toy Story 4," "The Lion King," "Captain Marvel,"  "Aladdin" and "Avengers: Endgame." It's no wonder that Disney World is reported to bring in $18.2 billion worth of economic activity for Florida every year. Needless to say, Disney movies are embedded in the collective hearts of millions and millions of people who just can't get enough of them.

Whether you're trying to prove your die-hard dedication or want to test your knowledge ahead of "Frozen 2" and the "Lady and the Tramp's" upcoming releases, this quiz is full of true or false questions that'll make your heart burst and brain think. So let's pull an Alice and go down the rabbit hole. Alexa, play "Let it Go"!

Every good movie has some comic relief. Olaf, one of "Frozen's" funnier characters, is a snowman that Elsa and Anna created when they were kids.

Voiced by Josh Gad, Olaf may be one of the movie's funnier characters but has a more profound significance, serving as a symbol of how the sisters' bond took a chilly turn.

Make your way down the rabbit hole. Is "Alice in Wonderland" based on the "Alice" book series by Lewis Caroll?

Lewis Caroll penned two books about the iconic character: "Alice's Adventured in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass." The latter sees Alice entering an alternate world after stepping through a magical mirror.

Released in 2014, "Maleficent" told the story of Sleeping Beauty from the titular villain's perspective. Liv Tyler played her.

Angelina Jolie played Maleficent and received praise for her performance. Jolie's daughter, Vivienne, made a cameo appearance as a younger version of Aurora, supposedly because she was the only one who was not afraid to see her mom in her costume.

In "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," the Evil Queen recites the line, "Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?"

This line is a great example of the Mandela Effect, which is a phenomenon where people collectively remember something incorrectly. While everyone thinks it's "Mirror, mirror," the Evil Queen never actually says that in the film.

Dog is man's best friend, right? So what does that make a Bengal tiger? Speaking of which, in "Aladdin," was Jasmine's pet tiger named Rajah?

Despite only being a minor character, Rajah, meaning "Indian prince" in Arabic and Hindi, conveys a hidden message. Upon growing back into a tiger after Jafar's spell ends, his face looks like Mickey Mouse's for a split second.

Released in 1991, "Beauty and the Beast" was the last Disney movie that Walt Disney oversaw.

Walt Disney died more than 20 years before the movie's release. The last movie that Disney oversaw was “The Jungle Book,” which was released in 1967, soon after his death.

The fairies in "Sleeping Beauty" are integral to the plot, in no small part because they give Prince Phillip the Sword of Truth and Shield of Virtue. Their names are Flora, Fauna and Fortuity.

The third fairy is Merryweather. She's known as the shorter fairy donned in blue who makes Maleficent's death curse less intense by allowing Aurora to fall asleep instead, only to be awoken by true love's kiss.

Raking in more than $267 million all over the world, "The Princess and the Frog" featured Tiana as an aspiring chef and restaurant owner. Mama Odie is the name of the voodoo priestess who weds Tiana and Prince Naveen.

Jenifer Lewis voices Mama Odie, the 197-year-old who owns a pet snake named Juju. Mama Odie helps Tiana and Prince Naveen, who are doomed to be frogs, return to human form by ensuring that Tiana becomes a princess.

Moana received two Oscar nominations, one for Best Original Song and the other for Best Animated Feature. In the movie, an ancient volcano chooses Moana to bring back the Heart of Te Fiti.

The voice of Judge Claude Frollo, the main bad guy of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," was voiced by voice actor Tony Jay.

The late Tony Jay has an impressive list of voice work in radio, animation, film and video games. In addition to Frollo, Jay also provided his voice in Disney films such as "Beauty and the Beast" (Monsieur D'arque), "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (Magic Mirror) and "The Jungle Book 2" (Shere Khan) — as well as many other Disney productions on television. He's known for his distinctive baritone voice, which often led to him being cast as the villain.

The title character of every single Disney film ever produced has had spoken lines.

In "Dumbo," our elephant friend with huge ears does not have any spoken dialogue whatsoever. This makes Dumbo the only titular character in a Disney film to never speak, though he’s accompanied by Dopey in "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," Gideon in "Pinocchio" and Tootles in "Peter Pan" as characters who remain mum.

The release of a new Disney movie is a major global event, especially if the movie is an original production. All Disney movies in the company's history have had major worldwide releases.

"Fantasia" was released in only 14 theaters globally — that's right, 14! — because many of the theaters of the 1940s did not have the equipment to handle the complex sound demands of the film at the time of its release.

You can't be late for the ball! In the original "Cinderella," the Royal Ball that Cinderella so desperately wants to attend starts at 7 p.m.

The Royal Ball starts at 8 p.m., which gives Cinderella even less time with the prince before the clock strikes midnight — who knows, one extra hour, and the entire plot could have been different!

"The Incredibles" won the hearts of audiences and critics alike and was so popular, a sequel was made 14 years later. At the end of the first movie, The Subverter is the supervillain who appears and prompts the family to rise to action.

The villain's name is The Underminer. He looks like a mole and drills his way into the open from under a road, but only has a small role in the sequel that nonetheless triggers an interesting chain of events.

The prince in "Beauty and the Beast" was cursed by the Enchantress from the moment he was born.

The prince was cursed when he was 11 years old when the Enchantress arrived at his castle dressed up as a beggar. The prince refused to offer the Enchantress shelter inside his castle, so she cast the curse on him and turned him into the beast, which he was at risk of being permanently stuck as, unless he found love before his 21st birthday.

In "Hercules," Hades plots to conquer Olympus, so he promises Hercules that he won't harm Megara if he gives up his strength for 24 hours.

Hades learns from The Fates that he can overthrow Zeus if he can free the Titans, but The Fates also prophesize that Hercules will stop him. So Hades kidnaps Megara, Hercules’ love interest, and promises to return her to Hercules if he gives up his powers for a period of time. Hercules agrees, and this gives Hades just enough time to conquer Olympus.

In "Tangled," Rapunzel's favorite soup is butternut squash.

Mother Gothel may have been many things, like overprotective, downright mean and extremely wicked, but judging by how many recipes you can find online, she made one gosh darn good hazelnut soup.

Captivating millions everywhere, "Finding Nemo" was the highest-grossing G-rated movie in history, until "Toy Story 3" took its spot. Gill is the name of the fish that lives in the dentist's office aquarium and happens to be the chief of the Tank Gang.

With Willem Dafoe providing the voice, Gill is a moorish idol fish that devises the master plan to finally get out of the aquarium by asking Nemo to put pebbles in its filter. The idea was that the dentist would be forced to transfer his fish to plastic bags, giving them the chance to escape.

Princess Jasmine from "Aladdin" is the youngest princess in the canon of Disney princesses.

Princess Jasmine is 16, Belle of "Beauty and the Beast" is 17, Rapunzel of "Tangled" is 18, and the title of “Youngest Disney Princess” goes to Snow White, who appears as the titular character at the age of 14.

"Hamlet" was the inspiration for the plot of "The Lion King."

The plot of each story revolves around a duplicitous uncle who kills the protagonist’s father. Many of the supporting characters in "The Lion King" follow the same character arcs as those in "Hamlet." For example, Rafiki brings Simba to the ghost of his father in the same way Horatio brings Hamlet to his.

Adored by many, "Mary Poppins" swept the 1965 awards season, with Julie Andrews winning an Oscar for best actress, among other accolades. In the story, the Banks live at No. 17 Cherry Tree Lane.

There are many streets in London that look just like Cherry Tree Lane, but, unfortunately, no such place actually exists. In fact, the film wasn’t even filmed in London — it was filmed at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California.

Grossing over $533 million globally, "WALL-E," the sentient robot, found its way into the hearts of millions of kids (and adults). Jeff Garlin voiced the cute little machine.

"WALL-E," which stands for Waste Allocation Load Lifter: Earth-Class, was voiced by Ben Burtt. Jeff Garlin was Captain B. McCrea, who is only referred to as "Captain" throughout the movie.

Jafar's official title in "Aladdin" is Royal Adviser to the Sultan.

Jafar’s official title is actually "Grand Vizier of Agrabah." His character might have been based on the Persian vizier of the Arab Abbasid, who went by the name of Ja’far ibn Yahya Barmaki. The Abbasid was a dynasty that came to power in Central Asia and parts of Africa in 750 BC.

In the animated version, Cinderella leaves behind the slipper to her right foot.

In the animated film, Cinderella loses her left slipper. In the live-action version, however, she loses her right slipper. Neither version explains how a glass slipper that fit so perfectly could fall off so easily.

For Timon in "The Lion King," all food tastes like chicken to him.

Timon says this to Simba to get him to adopt his and Puumba’s lifestyle. This raises the question: If Timon only eats Saharan insects, how does he even know what chicken, which isn’t indigenous to that region, tastes like?

"Monsters, Inc." was so commercially successful — earning over $577 million — that a prequel, "Monsters University," was made 12 years later. Helen Mirren appears in both.

Helen Mirren lends her voice to Abigail Hardscrabble, who runs the Scarer Program at the university. However, she doesn't make an appearance in the first film, which makes sense since it contains no mention of the school.

In the 1961 version of "One Hundred and One Dalmatians," the two main characters are Pongo and Perdita.

Rod Taylor and Cate Bauer voiced Pongo and Perdita, respectively, though Perdita's name was changed to Perdy in the 1996 live-action version that stars Glenn Close as Cruella de Vil.

"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" has the distinction of being America's first feature-length animated movie. Speaking of the dwarfs, Melancholy was one of them.

The dwarfs are Doc, the leader, Grumpy and Sleepy (who, perhaps not surprisingly, are played by the same actor), Happy, Bashful, Sneezy and Dopey, who is the only dwarf without a beard and who doesn't speak.

In "Beauty and the Beast," now that Gaston has grown, he says he has to eat three dozen eggs to stay "roughly the size of a barge."

Gaston sings that when he "was a lad," he had to eat four dozen eggs every morning to help him get large, but to get to the size of a barge, he has to eat five dozen eggs. Just to put that into perspective, that's about 4,680 calories only from eggs. How egg-citing.

To this day, "Aladdin" has inspired millions of kids with Halloween costumes. His appearance was based on John Stamos.

At first, the inspiration for Aladdin’s style came from Michael J. Fox, but was later developed from Tom Cruise’s appearance, while his baggy pants were borrowed from MC Hammer’s wardrobe.

The name of Mulan’s pet dragon is Mushu.

Joe Pesci was first cast in the role of Mushu, but after a few voice tests, the animators decided against using him for the part. Steve Martin, Sinbad, Chris Tucker, Chris Rock and Drew Carey were all considered for the role before it went to Eddie Murphy, who could not reprise his role for the sequel because of a scheduling conflict with "Shrek 2."

In "Monsters Inc.," Sulley's real name is James.

Sulley's full legal name is James P. Sullivan, though nobody knows what the P stands for. In an early version of the script, Sulley's name was supposed to be Johnson, and in the end credits of "Monsters Inc.," he's credited as just "Sullivan."

"Pocahontas" is based on a real person.

Pocahontas is the only Disney character to be based on a historical figure, diverging from the studio's usual process of basing a story around a folk tale. Pocahontas is also the only Disney princess to have more than one love interest — John Smith and John Rolfe — though fans hated Rolfe.

"Diablo" is the name of a raven that is found in "The Lion King."

Diablo is actually Maleficent's pet raven. Maleficent and Diablo have a similar relationship to that of Jafar and Iago in the sense that both villains view their birds as assistants rather than pets, though Maleficent treats Diablo more as a second-in-command, and Diablo plays a much bigger part in the story.

In 2015, Disney announced that its movies would no longer depict characters smoking on screen.

Receiving praise from activists, Robert Iger, Disney's Chief Executive, banned smoking in Disney movies, citing ethical reasons. This means that even if a character was depicted smoking in the original, such as Cruella de Vil, this won't be the case for remakes.
