"Now I'm in a whole new world with you!" Disney films often transport us to a different time or place. Whether we're watching an old classic or a newer picture, the films always leave us with a feeling of love and a sense of adventure. While many of the films are high comedy, who can forget about the love connections. These films are all about the characters falling in love, and there are some power couples in their midst. Do you think you can pair the Disney characters to their love interests?
Walt Disney Pictures might be one of the most prolific film companies of all times. Since the 1930s, Disney has been creating films with memorable characters and unforgettable story lines. With the release of their first film, we were introduced to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937. The film would be followed by early classics of Pinocchio, Bambi and Cinderella. While many of these movies were set up to have an underlying lesson, most simply featured a love blossoming between the characters. Aurora and Sleeping Beauty would remain asleep forever waiting on their princes. Cinderella would've been dancing alone at the ball without hers. How many Disney characters can you match to their love interest? There's only one way to find out! Put on those mouse ears and let's go!
