Small Sibling Details Fans Noticed In Disney Movies

List Rules
Vote up the details you never noticed before.

Disney movies aren't just family-friendly; they're often about family itself. And while they've told some wonderful stories about children and their parents, many of the most memorable Disney hits involve sibling relationships. Sisters like Frozen's Anna and Elsa are celebrated for their love and camaraderie, but as fans online are pointing out, there are plenty of little details that make relationships like theirs even stronger. In Encanto, for example, if you look closely at Agustín's outfit, you'll notice that it has elements inspired by each of his three daughters. In Lilo & Stitch, Nani is forced to care for her younger sister like a mother. Before then, however, you can tell from her many trophies that she was an accomplished surfer. There are even examples from lesser-known siblings. In The Little Mermaid, Ariel's seven sisters all wear their hair in updos to show they are more prim and proper!

Check out this list of small details fans spotted about Disney siblings, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!
