Heads Up  This Supercut Of  90s Disney Movies Will Probably Make You Cry Disney Bimbettes crying gif

In the mood to relive the magic of ’90s Disney movies and possibly shed a few tears over their powerful themes and visual beauty? Then I suggest you watch this new supercut tribute to that iconic time in Disney animation. It was made by YouTuber indrancole3, who works as a professional trailer editor (Can you say dream job?), and to say it will give you all the feels is an understatement of Herculean proportions. Your sinuses will tingle, your lip will quiver, your eyes will cloud up and you’ll have to pause the video to make sure you don’t miss anything. It’s a lot.

Despite the title, the video isn’t strictly devoted to movies that came out in the 1990s. The earliest movie featured is The Great Mouse Detective, from 1986. There are also a few titles (Lilo & Stitch, Atlantis: The Lost Empire, etc.) that came out in the early 2000s, but, as the description states, it’s more of a tribute to “Disney’s 2D animation films,” which experienced a renaissance in this time period. Because it stretched through the entire decade of the ’90s, that’s the period we associate these titles with. You can also just call it millennials’ childhoods.

This video, in addition to just being fabulously edited, reminds us just how visually stunning these movies were. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen some beautiful digital animation in the years since, but there’s just something about the 2D stuff Disney put out in this era that takes my breath away. The stampede in The Lion King? Tarzan surfing on tree branches? Quasimodo holding up Esmeralda? The sequence where Mulan prepares to leave home? IT’S ALL SO GOOD! It really makes me want to break out my VHS tapes and have a marathon. Right after I finish crying, that is.
