15 Shocking Disney Movie Secrets You Never Knew Growing Up

We've got cameos, intertwined stories, and even murder...welcome to the wonderful world of Disney!

Who doesn’t love Disney movies? They made our childhood so much better and they helped us hold onto the magic well into our adult years. Heck, even as “mature” citizens, we still find ourselves wanting to put on an old-school Disney film every once in awhile. From the really old movies like Snow White and Cinderella, to the hits of the 1990s like Hercules and The Lion King, to newer productions like Frozen and Tangled, Disney is filled with secrets. There are plenty of hidden easter eggs and never before mentioned details that you are just dying to hear. This list is definitely for the super fans, although just about anyone would enjoy reading through it.

These are not bad secrets; just things that you probably have never thought about before, and some of which may seriously change the way you think about some of your favorite films. Just imagine what you thought had happened to Scar in The Lion King. You might be surprised to find out where else he ends up in the wacky Disney universe.

It appears that Disney is never one to shy away from time-travelling, alternate realities, and various dimensions, as movies that are decades apart seem to have common threads throughout them. And of course, all of these secretive and elusive details have led to some pretty elaborate fan theories. But those are best saved for another day! For now, enjoy reading our list and prepare to be amazed.

Okay, so not literally, but Mulan definitely had some staying power after her tremendous effort in her own movie. If you watch Lilo & Stitch, you can spot a Chinese restaurant called Mulan Wok. Cultural appropriation? Maybe. It was actually Disney’s way of including a Mulan easter egg in Lilo & Stitch. The strange thing about this is that Mulan was fighting in the Chinese military a long time ago, and we mean a really long time ago (sometime between the years 420-589.) We’re pretty sure that Lilo & Stitch takes place in the present tense or future (it was released in 2002) so that is an extremely long timespan between Mulan’s life and the existence of Lilo’s town in Lilo & Stitch. Hey, it could happen, given the magic and time-travelling shenanigans of Disney. Still, we wish that Mulan were commemorated in some other way besides a cheap-looking Chinese restaurant. Maybe next time, Mulan!
