This Little Girl With Down Syndrome Sings The Best Cover Of Let It Go. AWW.

Since it’s release almost a year ago, there have been about million covers of the anthemic ballad “Let it Go” from Disney’s wildly popular animated film Frozen.

Actually, probably more like a million and a half. With each new incarnation of the empowering song, originally sung by cast member and Broadway icon Idina Menzel, is a fresh attempt to out-cute the one before it. And they all melt away in comparison to this little girl’s perfect rendition. Take a look!

Even better than the original.

10 Tiny Secrets You Probably Didn’t Notice In These Disney Classics

Disney parks have always held their fair share of secrets — some magical, and some downright creepy — but Disney’s Freemason-like obsession with hidden symbols isn’t limited to the franchise’s attractions.

In this clip, the folks over at Screen Rant point out 10 hidden messages in Disney films that only keen-eyed fans would notice.

Some of these “easter eggs” were even spotted in recent films!

I always wonder how long it takes for animators to incorporate hidden gems like these. I mean, they’re cool and all, but I really hope there’s not some low-level artist who’s forced to spend long nights burying these little references in animated frames.

Vintage Disneyland: The Creepiest Place On Earth.

Disneyland is more commonly known as “the happiest place on earth,” where all of our favorite characters from childhood come to life. Everything is bright, adorable and made to feel like a dream come true. (It’s also stupidly expensive, but who can put a price on happiness anyway?)

If a dream is a wish your heart makes, these vintage photos from the Disneyland of yesteryear are the nightmares your body runs away from. Looks like it was a creepy world after all! Yikes.

1.) Did their faces NEED to be nightmarish and ceramic?

2.) I wish someone would save Alice from Mickey…

3.) The Mad Hatter is mad. Very, very mad.

4.) Someone needs to explain the bloodshot, murderous eyes.

5.) Eeyore’s walk of shame.

6.) Who’s scarier, Tick Tock or Peter Pan?

7.) Pinocchio can see into your soul. And will eat it.

8.) Why do the pigs look shifty?

9.) RUN CHILDREN. RUN, NOW.

10.) Don’t listen to his evil secrets, child.

11.) … giant faces. They are giant, walking faces.

12.) NOPE.

13.) As it turns out… giant, naked pigs are frightening.

14.) This is what Disney crime scene photos look like.

15.) Giant, stoned animals aren’t child-friendly.

16.) This just keeps getting worse.

17.) That stare…

18.) I’ve never been so frightened of Winnie The Pooh.

19.) They aren’t blushing, their cheeks are covered in blood.

20.) P.S., this giant bug wants to eat your babies.

21.) It’s the giant hole in Baloo’s neck that’s the creepy part.

22.) Giant pigs are NOT adorable. Are NOT.

23.) Noooooooo! Why aren’t those kids afraid?!

24.) I’m not so sure he is looking that innocent…

(via Mental Floss.)

“The happiest place on earth?” That must’ve been evil Disney propaganda. 

Share these Creepyland photos with others… and appreciate the fact you never have to see giant, pantless pigs yourself.

Did You Know That Big Budget Movies Actually Copy Scenes All The Time?

Director Ed Wood was infamous for piecing together stock footage to complete his low-budget films. As a result, his cult classic Plan 9 from Outer Space is widely regarded as, well, the worst movie of all time. But he’s not the only director guilty of copying and pasting to save a buck.

It’s no surprise that producing a blockbuster tends to cost a studio tons of cash. Even the smallest special effect can add up to thousands (or millions) of dollars, so it’s kind of understandable why they might try to cut a corner here and there. But when the movie connoisseurs over at Screen Rant took a second look at these big-budget films, they couldn’t help but think the producers probably could have been a bit more subtle. Each one was caught giving their audience a strange sense of déjà vu:

1. This is actually one of the least terrible things about the unfortunate prequel franchise.

2. Michael Bay got hit with a truth bomb when people noticed something eerily familiar in the Transformers franchise to one of his earlier films.

3. Set phasers to stun…ningly obvious.

4. The film may have been based on a video game, but most of the backstory was taken from Jessica Alba’s debut show.

5. Film execs wanted a happier ending for Ridley Scott’s 1989 classic Blade Runner

So they spliced in the ironically idyllic intro from Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 thriller, The Shining.

6. Even film virtuoso Orson Welles borrowed stock footage for his iconic film, Citizen Kane.

Notice the unusually large birds flying around in this picnic scene? Rumor has it they’re actually from the 1933 film, Son of Kong.

7. Bill and Ted might not have time traveled back quite as far as they thought for this scene.

8. Back in the day, Disney animators frequently reused old frames for new films.

If you think about it, your next movie ticket could really be a two-for-one deal. But somehow, I’d still feel short-changed.
