It’s Easter! It’s also the opening of the new Disney film Zootopia so in honour of these events we’ve decided our Easter Egg Hunt is going to take a decidedly Disney turn, specifically trying to find all the Easter Eggs hidden in Disney films. The animators over at Disney love to try and sneak in as many references to old films and in jokes as they can so here are a few. We’ve stuck to 1 per movie but there are hundreds so the next time you’re forced to watch another Disney movie for the 1000th time, entertain yourself by trying to see if you can spot them all.
1. The Little Mermaid
Mickey, Donald, and Goofy are among the crowd during King Triton’s entrance.
The Beast appears as one of the Sultan’s toys.
