Disney movies are very well known for their cleverness. If you haven’t heard of Disney movie easter eggs, allow me to explain what these are – no they’re not literal easter eggs hidden throughout movies, instead they are little hidden secrets (such as characters, disney history, etc) hidden throughout Disney films. I wanted this to be a list of my favorite Easter Eggs, but after really thinking about that – I’m not sure if I could ever choose however many favorites because I love them all. So instead I chose some of the ones I love the most. And I’d love to hear which ones of yours you love that I didn’t include!
This one is from Up. You can see the Pixar ball (yellow ball with red star) that is actually in a lot of Pixar films, and if you look in the bottom left corner by the bed, you see Lotso from Toy Story 3!
This is from Hercules. At one point Hercules is posing for a man who is painting him on a vase and he’s wearing Scar as a headdress. Scar is from Lion King. I remember seeing this when I was younger and thinking it was so sneaky and clever. I still think that, actually.
This next one is from Tangled. When Flynn takes Rapunzel to the Snuggly Duckling, there is a wide shot where, if you look quick, you can see Pinnochio hiding up near the ceiling!
This is from Aladdin and another one that really impressed me as a youngin’. When the Sultan is building his little animal pyramid, you quickly see the Beast from Beauty and the Beast!
This one is for sure in my top 5. This is from Ratatouille. When Remi is running around the city you see the shadow of who? Dug!! My favorite Disney dog! Dug is from Up. And now I want to watch Up. (but skip the first half because I’m not in the mood to cry my eyes out currently)
In Tarazan when Terk and her friends sing Trashin the Camp – while totally trashing the camp, you get a glimpse of Mrs. Pots and Chip from Beauty and the Beast!
This one is from Finding Nemo and I love it. At a scene at the Dentist Office when things appear to be getting crazy in the office, you see the waiting clients in the waiting room. The boy who nervously looks up is reading a Mr. Incredible comic!
And ending this post with one of my all time favorites – another from Hercules. The Muse’s are lined up just like the signing busts in Haunted Mansion – my very favorite Disney attraction. How can this not just make you smile?
So theres a few I love. Maybe I’ll have to do another post like this in the future so I can include even more I love. Which are your favorites?
