Here’s a fun and slightly horrifying fact: in 2019, of the top 10 highest grossing films worldwide, 9 were made/owned by Disney.
The only exception being Joker, which was produced by Warner Brothers, a company Disney does not own – yet.
The rate at which Disney has acquired properties and companies has been astounding, turning it over the decades from an animation studio to a world-dominating, 70-billion-dollar-a-year mega corporation.
In other words, they’re a pretty big force.
So it’s not surprising that the fandom wing of Tumblr does a lot of talking about the Disney properties that have come to take up such a big sector of pop culture.
Good thing too, because a lot of their observations are hilarious.

1. Justice is served
Put your hans up.
Kinda makes you look at these movies in a different light. Also, I wonder how long before we stop calling them Disney movies and just call them “movies,” because Disney owns literally all motion pictures. Any day now, probably.
What’s the weirdest Disney thing to you?
