Top 10 Most Common Disney Movie Clichésegnomac Many Disney movies has featured many over used cliches.
The Top Ten
The exception is Hercules. His parents are gods so they can't die and therefore don't die and is alive the entire movie
Perhaps the oldest and over used cliche dating back to when Walt Disney's mother died resulting in almost every Disney movie having one or no parents or parents dying in the movie. - egnomac
It wouldn't be a Disney movie without characters breaking out into song for no reason. - egnomac
I have to point out that Snow White had a quite realistic body. However, her head was almost twice as big as would be proportional to the rest of her. There are some extreme cases such as Jasmine and Megara, but this has become less of a issue. It is not really the main problem when it comes to Disney.
Do you know how skinny Meg's waist is?
How? Their bodies seem realistic to me. My one is even similar to Rapunzel's. - GlassweighanCountess
So many characters in Disney movies are too trusting when it comes to strangers which why they end up in the trouble that they get into, for example Snow White biting into the poison apple from the Queen disguised as the old woman dispite warnings by The Dwarfs against strangers, Pinnochio trusting Honest John not once but twice, Tarzan foolishly trusting Clayton and getting his ape family captured. - egnomac
When Anna fell in love in Frozen, she knew true love was something at first sight. But then Elsa pointed out by telling her she can't marry someone she just met. Elsa is more wiser than Anna.
Disney really loves killing off their villians in the most horrific and violent ways possible. - egnomac
A Lot of female mostly princess characters end up having to be saved by a guy for example: Ariel in The Little Mermain, Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderella only on a few occasions do the girls save the men. - egnomac
Disney's Hercules is based on Greek mythology
Ariel doesn't really learn anything, she just sorta wants to get something and she gets it.
They do this to make it family friendly. A lot of stuff in the original source material are really inappropriate for kids.
For example in Disney’s Hercules, Hera is his mom. In actual Greek mythology, she is his worst enemy. She wasn’t even his mom! She would try to kill him in every way possible and turn him into a mentally ill guy. If the actual myth was in the movie, it would scare kids.
Except for Mulan
I’m fine with Vanellope being a Disney princess in the new Ralph Breaks the Internet film, although she was annoying and whinny in the first film, but she’s okay from the trailers
With a few exceptions...
For example, Hercules and Scar from the Lion King
Also, in the Hercules episode "Return of Typhon", Hermes said "Cloud 33" which is a reference to Disneyland's private club "Club 33"
The parents are usually king and queens
