Disney Actress Sings “A Whole New World” With Polite Drunk Folks in a NYC Bar

Lea Salonga, the singing voice of both Jasmine and Mulan, reprises her Oscar winning singing performance not just for, but with, an entire bar of folks who adorably hush up so she can sing her part of the duet. Apparently this happened within a subway stop of our office about a month ago, so maybe we should get out more.

Aladdin Might Be On Its Way to Broadway, I Hope They Bring His Mom

According to the New York Times, a stage version of Disney’s Aladdin will be making its way to the New Amsterdam Theater. There’s a lot of reasons why this is a pretty cool thing. Not only is Aladdin a pretty dang good Disney movie, it’s was also the first of Disney’s animated features to include a lead female character of color (although we’d have to wait three years to get one as the lead), second only to the The Jungle Book as the earliest Disney feature animated film where the main character is not of white-European descent. Broadway musicals are already a field of work where starring (and in many shows even secondary) roles for actors of color are thin on the ground.

But a stage musical can also be a chance to escape the usually-around-ninety-minute limit of the animated feature, expand upon secondary characters, introduce original songs or even reintroduce songs that were cut from the original film. Which brings us to the very sad story of Aladdin’s mom and the song “Proud of Your Boy.”

Disney Princesses… If They Were in Final Fantasy X-2

Final Fantasy X-2 introduced a new wrinkle into the famous RPG series: instead of being handed a selection of characters with set classes to choose a three person fighting team with, players were handed exactly three characters (Rikku, Yuna, and Paine) and could choose which class roles they wanted those characters to play at any moment, simply by changing their outfits. It was also the first FF game to feature an all female main cast.

And what with the fanart trend of giving reinterpreting Disney princesses, and the existing presence of the official Final Fantasy/Disney crossover games Kingdom Hearts, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that xsKiRtZx’s drawings of Disney princesses and other lead female characters as Final Fantasy X-2 classes are a pretty cool combination.

What’s to explain? Immortality. You want it.

No, don’t give me any of that crap about living longer than your loved ones or statistically if you can’t die than eventually you’re certain to get trapped in a situation where you wish you could. The human race wants to live forever. Somehow. This is why we have anti aging cream, children, art, and religion.

What Disney Princesses Would Look Like If They Were Actually Human

Jirka Väätäinen is a graphic design student at the Arts University College at Bournemouth in the UK, and he’s come up with some really interesting interpretations of what Disney‘s animated heroines would look like in real life using photo manipulation, including Aladdin‘s Jasmine, pictured above. Are they still bursting with unattainable beauty? Of course — but they are so incredibly human in these pictures. Even Ursula the Sea Witch.

These Disney Princesses Don’t Mess Around

These princesses are not wishing upon a star. They’re bored to death of sitting around and waiting for princes, dreams, and all that other fairy tale stuff to happen. Who’s the fairest one of all? Justice.
