Ah, the ‘90s. It was quite the decade, especially when it comes to Disney movies. Seriously—this was a time of creative reinvention, bold experimentation, and a return to the kind of solid storytelling and craftsmanship that made the studio such a powerhouse. The sheer amount of movies produced in the decade is staggering; the quality is what makes it truly miraculous.
And just as interesting as the movies, are the behind-the-scenes details of the making of the films. How well do you know these little-known production facts? It’s time to test your knowledge of all things Disney-in-the-‘90s:
Which actress did Beauty and the Beast directors Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise originally have in mind for Mrs. Potts?
Because of the complex techniques used to create the film, Pocahontas took how many years to complete?
Which famous pop singer was originally attached to voice a character in The Hunchback of Notre Dame?
How many animators, artists, and technicians did it take to complete Mulan?
Three of these films were conceived during the same lunch. Which one doesn’t belong?

Which actress did not audition for the role of Annie and Hallie in The Parent Trap?
While you certainly know your ‘90s Disney movies, there’s always room for improvement! Hey, Hercules didn’t become a hero overnight!
That’s the spirit! We could easily see you taking on villainous hyenas or defending the Pride Lands with your behind-the-scenes knowledge alone. Still, if you want to be the Lion King, you’ll want to try even harder.
This is nearly perfection! Your behind-the-scenes know-how is more impressive than the Cave of Wonders!
Look at you! Your Disney ‘90s knowledge is positively encyclopedic. Everyone from Bernard and Bianca to Woody and Buzz would be impressed with your skills!
