Best Disney movie questions of all time

Beauty and the Beast picture

Question: Does Chip really have as many siblings as there are cups in the kitchen? Seems a bit too many, and also they aren't seen as real children at the end of the movie.

Chosen answer: The servants in the castle are transformed into enchanted objects because of the spell, but there are still plenty of other objects in the castle which were not originally people.

Question: How exactly did Rafiki know Simba was alive?

Eyexpress333

Chosen answer: Rafiki is a bit of a msytic or a shaman; a quasi-magical character. He was able to smell Simba on the wind that we followed from one to the other.

Question: At the salmon run, what does the foreign bear say?

Chosen answer: A good translation would be "I almost froze to death while I was going over the huge icy mountain pass, it was something which I only barely survived! Barely!

Tangled picture

Question: In the scene of Mother Gothel stabbing Eugene, is it possible for him to die that fast from that wound?

Chosen answer: All she had to do was nick the right blood vessel, and he could have died much sooner. So, yes, it's possible for him to have died that fast. We have to assume the lack of blood was just Disney toning things down and not representative of the actual severity of the wound. If appearances counted for anything at all in the world of Disney, there'd be no such thing as a mortal wound.

Wreck-It Ralph picture

Question: If Gene is the only Nicelander who is not afraid of Ralph then why does he scream with fear as he sees Ralph at the door during the party? Shouldn't he have given Ralph a stern look and told him to leave?

xx:xx:xx

Chosen answer: It wasn't that he was screaming out of fear of Ralph exactly, but more surprise to see Ralph of all people, as well as sudden fear of Ralph wrecking the party.

Quantom X
Aladdin picture

Question: What does Aladdin mean when he says: "Look at that Abu, it's not everyday you see a horse with two rear ends."?

Chosen answer: Aladdin is referring to the person riding the horse as being a "horse's ass" in the way he is acting, thus the horse the person was riding on has two rear ends, his own and the rider.

Question: If Callaghan thought that Abigail is gone because of Krei, why is he killing Hiro and others?

Chosen answer: Because they are interfering with his plans and trying to stop him.

Question: When Judy starts her mission to find Mr. Otterton and finds Nick with his partner, Finnick, she manages to hustle the fox, get him to confess his crimes on a voice recorder, and forces him to assist her on her mission before she decides to arrest him. Finnick laughs at Nick's humiliation and walks away. Why does Judy let Finnick off the hook despite the fact he was involved in Nick's scams?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: Finnick didn't say anything that could be used against him and she had no proof that he was delinquent on his taxes, as he said, "She hustled you good!"

Frozen picture

Question: Do the King and Queen of Arendelle really have a relationship with the King and Queen of Corona? If so, then what kind? Are they relatives or merely friends/allies? If they are relatives, does that mean Anna and Elsa are cousins with Rapunzel?

Chosen answer: Nothing has been confirmed officially, I believe. However the creators were fascinated by fan theories and said that they'll leave that to the viewer's imagination.

Moana (2016)

Moana picture

Question: Does Maui need to eat and drink to survive? If so, how did he survive for so long on a desert island; especially when there's no signs he had any tools for fishing or a way of creating fresh water? If not, why did he seek out food when Moana showed up? Also, it's heavily implied that Maui urinates, which probably means that he drank something, but why would he if he doesn't need food or water?

Plausible_Reptile

Chosen answer: There's a sign he had tools for sculpting a statue of himself from solid stone, though we never see the sculpting tools. Given the fact that he wants food and isn't dead, it's safe to assume he also had some tools available for fishing.

Phixius
Lilo & Stitch picture

Question: In the scene where Nani is pulling nails out of the door frame because Lilo wants to be alone and Mr. Bubbles arrives, when Nani goes around the back (smashing a window and turning off Lilo's music) is Nani opening the presumably nailed shut door to let Mr. Bubbles in that he later yanks open and all the nails fall?

Chosen answer: No she opens the back door for Mr. Bubbles - you see him later open the front door that is still nailed shut.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs picture

Question: When the animals go to tell the dwarves about the witch trying to kill Snow White, why is Grumpy all of a sudden concerned about her? He's the first one to say that they have to go rescue her and then is leading them back to the cottage, although up to that point he hasn't liked her at all.

Chosen answer: He's oppositional, sure, but that's just who he is. It doesn't mean he doesn't like her.

Phixius
Sleeping Beauty picture

Question: Why does Flora only just notice at the end of the film that Aurora's dress is blue? She saw it on her loads of times before then, and never said anything.

Chosen answer: Because she wasn't paying any attention to the color.

Question: In all respect, was a woman allowed to hug the emperor at that time?

Question: I once heard that there's a shell somewhere in the movie that has a profanity written on it. Is this true?

Chosen answer: Yet another Disney urban legend.

Tarzan (1999)

Question: How did Tarzan know the proper way to put the clothes on?

Chosen answer: From the picture of his parents. He knows where everything goes, and it's not too hard to work out how to put them on.

Question: How did Tiana know that Naveen was going to marry Lottie? We don't find out until later that Lottie has to kiss Naveen in order for the spell to be broken and sure Lottie was attracted to Naveen but still, marriage wasn't mentioned so how did Tiana know? Did I miss something?

Chosen answer: Mama Odie tells Tiana and Naveen that Naveen must kiss a true princess in order to break the spell. Lottie is the princess of the Mardi gras parade so that would make her a princess and that would make it necessary for her to kiss Naveen and break the spell.

Alice in Wonderland picture

Question: Does anyone know the name of the song Alice sings after she's walking through the forest and some creature is wiping away her path? She's crying when she sings it.

Chosen answer: It is called 'Very Good Advice.'

Atlantis: The Lost Empire picture

Question: According to the IMDb, every ship that's ever been in a Disney move is included in the Leviathan graveyard. Could anyone give me some examples?

Chosen answer: For example prince Eric's ship/s from "the Little Mermaid" and the Susan Constant from "Pocahontas".

The Fox and the Hound picture

Question: If the bear died in the fall, assuming the fall did kill it, then how did Tod survive?

Chosen answer: Since we don't really know how he died, he could have drowned and not died on impact. Bear may not have been a strong swimmer or sustained too much injury from the gunshot to swim to the surface. However, in physics, force = mass * acceleration and thus larger creatures will hit the water with greater force than small creatures (as the old cliche goes; the bigger they are, the harder they fall). So it's possible for Bear to die on impact and not Tod because of his larger size.

Bambi (1942)

Bambi picture

Question: Is it true that Disney made this movie as a way to protest guns and/or hunting?

Chosen answer: No. As with most Disney films, it's based on a book, in this case a 1923 Austrian book entitled Bambi: A Life in the Woods. There's no evidence that the book was chosen for any more than the quality of the story.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame picture

Question: What war is Phoebus returning from?

Chosen answer: That's a good question. France actually fought no wars between the Battle of Castillon in 1451, and the Italian Wars which began in 1494. Seeing as the movie takes place in 1482 it seems strange that Phoebus would have fought in any war, unless he is at least 45 years old.

The Sword in the Stone picture

Question: What is the name of the germ that Merlin infects Mim with, and is it real or made up for the film?

Chosen answer: Malagolintomontorosis according to the trivia and it doesn't appear to be real. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sword_in_the_Stone_(film).

Question: Why do the other pirates bully Smee? What do they have against him?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: He's too much of a bumbler and too cheery (for example when he tells the crew "good morning" and they wanted to know why it's so good.) They probably also see him as a fool and brown-noser since he's always trying to make Hook happy. To the crew he's just Hook's assistant and not a real pirate at heart.

Meet the Robinsons picture

Question: Why would the pretty girl who plays with the trains be married to the obese, immobile Uncle Joey? Also, what is the joke when the old man says "That's Uncle Joey. He works out"?

Chosen answer: Well you don’t have to be 'good looking' to be married. Second it is just meant to be ironic when he says "That's Uncle Joey. He works out" because when you work out you're meant to be in good shape but obviously he isn't so it seems in the future working out is what we call now, a slob.

The Rescuers picture

Question: When Brutus and Nero capture Penny trying to run away, Brutus holds her by the straps on her dress. but when returning to the riverboat, Brutus holds Penny upside by her underwear. If it were possible, how would Brutus have managed to turn Penny upside down like that without releasing her and letting her run off again?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: It could be she got loose again when they were heading back and Brutus grabbed her again but this time by her underwear.

Bolt (2008)

Bolt picture

Question: Sometime within the film as Penny is putting up "Lost Dog" ads, she has a phone number on the paper as well. The phone number isn't a 555-5555 number either, and it might be for fans like in The Incredibles. If you can catch it, can you post it?

Chosen answer: When Penny is printing "LOST DOG" flyers, the last 4 digits of the phone number on the copier are: 8423. This makes the number (877) 504-8423. 877-504-8423 is a number reserved by ABC for movies and TV series. Calling it will provide a short tape recorded message about how fake it is.

The Emperor's New Groove picture

Question: All of the vials that Yzma has are labeled, but how? They can't be inside the vale because they would be wet and Yzma couldn't have flipped the label up like she did in a scene, yet...there is nothing attaching the label to the vial. how is it attached?

Chosen answer: It is probably attached with the equivalent of a piece of Scotch tape rolled over itself; I'm sure you've done that before. It wouldn't be visible to the naked eye, and Yzma would be able to flip the label up.

The Aristocats picture

Question: I wasn't sure which Disney film to ask about this, as it occurs in many (Alice in Wonderland, Fox and the Hound, Lady and the Tramp etc.) - But in many of the Dinsey films, most of the time many of the characters don't cast a shadow. Is there a reason for this? Or maybe would it be considered a mistake..?

Hamster

Chosen answer: It is the style of the artwork. Similarly, it is not a mistake that each individual hair is not drawn, the eyes are not really proportional to the head, etc.

Myridon
Hercules picture

Question: Why is it too nutty that Orpheus arranged the flowers?

Chosen answer: Orpheus was the greatest poet and musician of Greek mythology, his music could charm wild beasts and even persuade rocks and trees into movement; the idea of him arranging flowers is probably just a pun on his normal pasttime of 'arranging' music, or alternatively a reference to how he could have used his magical music to make the flowers spontaneously arrange themselves.
