He granted sapience and language to a bunch of rats, is what you're saying?!
Pretty much, and had the song made it into the film it would all be stripped away. You also forgot to mention the fact that they were diseased rats, that part's important.

Wow, I am very late to the party, but reading a story book isn't the same as the chapter book that Belle was reading to the Beast.
The "storybook" in EC is back-to-back paragraphs with a couple of illustrations thrown in, which Beast reads all the way through with no problem. "Human Again" shows that he can't even read the word "two" correctly.

One thing people keep questioning about the Mickey Mouse characters in KH is how Donald's nephews somehow don't age during the 10 years between BbS and KH1, but I've always personally explained it away as the passage of time not being the same between worlds, so I didn't mind it.

…what I do find difficult to comprehend, however, is how, in the proper Mickey Mouse universe, the nephews don't age while Max does.

There may not be a strict continuity between all pieces of Mickey Mouse media, but it's reasonable to assume the Upon a Christmas duology has a shared universe; Donald's nephews don't age at all, while Max goes from being a kid to a young adult.

So I've been watching a lot of Monsters at Work lately and i;ve been wondering, why is it socially acceptable in monster society that clothes are just optional.

Like, I get that a lot of monsters can't wear clothing, but some do, and others don't. Is putting on a hard hat really the same as wearing pants and a shirt? Does it ever get cold in Monstropolis?

The trope of the early Disney Princesses instantly marrying the first man they meet which modern Disney likes to lampshade and make fun of so much was never actually a thing that explicitly happened. Ever.

Films like Enchanted and Frozen honestly just make themselves look kind of silly the way they lampoon it.

Really?

Snow White: meets her prince near a wishing well, doesn't see him until he wakes her up at the end of the film.

Aurora: Meets Prince Phillip in the forest, possibly the first man she ever met because she was raised by the 3 fairies in the forest far from the kingdom since infancy. He later wakes her up.

Cinderella: meets the prince at the ball, they dance and he becomes so infatuated he organizes a hunt for her. They later marry, but are given a bit more characterization in the sequels.

given the scenarios these women are in, i’d say marriage to the Prince seems like moving up in the world. Cinderella married PC to get out of an abusive household and Snow White married her Prince in either gratitude for bringing her back from the dead or just cuz she’d been dreaming about it for the whole film. You could argue Aurora is the only exception to this but at least her marriage to Phillip is a diplomatic win for the kingdom

Let me lay it out for you guys.

Snow White: Walks off into the sunset with the Prince. Is never seen getting engaged to or marrying the Prince on screen. Literally the only time marriage is ever mentioned is in "Someday My Prince Will Come".

Cinderella: Marries the Prince at the end after a vague timeskip. The gap between the cut from the slipper going on to the wedding bells could be days or months, for all we know.

Aurora: Is supposedly engaged to Philip beforehand as a diplomatic thing, but she doesn't marry him at any point in the movie.

Ariel: Like Cinderella, she marries Eric after a timeskip (kissing Eric on the beach > kissing Eric on their wedding day).

Belle: Gets to know the Beast over an unspecified period of time which is implied to be months at most, and even then they never get engaged or married on screen.

Jasmine: Takes less than two sequels and a whole-ass TV series to tie the knot.

Pocahontas: Never gets engaged to or marries either of her potential suitors in either the original movie or its sequel.

Mulan: Canonically marries Shang a month after the original movie.

Tiana: Organically falls for Naveen over an extended period of time, marries him after another vague timeskip.

Rapunzel: Falls for Eugene over an extended period of time, doesn't marry him until after the events of the TV series.

I just noticed that Encanto's ending credits list "Let It Go" at the end of the song list, for some reason. Why?
Because when Bruno reunites with his family he sings to Tia Pepa "Let it snow, let it gooooo!"

I did wonder if that's what it was, before I came to my senses and realised how bloody ridiculous that would be.
Ridiculous, yes. But it was an intentional reference, so Disney's duty and legally bound to acknowledge it

Kinda surprised Disney hasn't done "modern" Oswald yet, they're still keeping him monochromatic which means he can only appear alongside retro Mickey.
