Walt Disney Animation Studios has created many of the most celebrated and beloved movies of all time, starting with 1937's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and carrying on to more contemporary classics like Frozen and Moana. While there's so much to love about these movies, sometimes the little details are the best part. Fans online have taken particular notice of costume and prop elements. For example, in Aladdin, after the eponymous hero gives Jasmine a flower on their magic ride, the princess actually keeps it in a vase on her vanity. Fans of Tarzan have pointed out that in the scene where the apes shake Professor Archimedes upside down, a plushie toy from Mulan falls out of his pocket. Beauty and the Beast has a costume detail with some great continuity! When the Wardrobe shows Belle all her clothing options we catch a glimpse of several dresses that she wears later on in the movie.
Check out this list of costume and prop details from Disney movies, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!
