Disney began their movie legacy in 1937 with the release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This classic tale of a girl being saved by a prince would spawn an entire corporation of films involving princesses, dark villains, and magical songs.
Since then, Disney has hundreds of movies to their name, ranging from subpar to unforgettable. They've also been the ones responsible for popularizing many fairy tales for a new era, including the likes of Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, and Frozen. With minor tweaks to make them appropriate for audiences of all ages, Disney was sure to remain on top of the movie industry for a long time.
With so many movies (both animated and live-action) under their belts, most have a difficult time remembering which characters belong to which film. While it's easy to place a main character with their movie, it's when you consider the side characters that it starts to get tricky.
