Not that kind of happy ending, but of the happily-ever-after kind. Get your mind out of the gutter 😉

It’s only a matter of time before Walt Disney releases an LGBT animated feature film. Until that happens, this fan-made video by YouTube user The Nameless Doll will have to do. He spliced together footage from various classics to tell a new ‘fairy’ tale (pun intended). I couldn’t resist.

Watch Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid and Dimitri from Anastasia fall in love. The entire clip is sung in Finnish but thankfully there are subtitles. Phew. Check it out below.

Ever wonder what chain of events led to Cruella de Vil’s obsession to turn dalmatians into fur coats? Wonder no more. Disney is developing an origin story centering around the fashionable villain. Much like what the studio did with Sleeping Beauty‘s Maleficent, people will discover how the iconic character came to be.

The 101 Dalmatians spin-off has no director as of yet, but Freaky Friday’s Andrew Gunn is set to produce. Glenn Close brought the animated character to life in the live-action 1996 hit film. Find out below which fiery actress is being eyed to portray Cruella this time around.

With his current gig on CBS’ Supergirl, Jeremy Jordan hasn’t had an opportunity to put his powerful pipes on display like he did on Smash. This past weekend, he took full advantage of his time on stage. The 31-year-old entertainer showed off his vocals at the 2015 TrevorLIVE LA event.

Jordan, who earned a Tony nomination for Newsies in 2012, delivered a medley of memorable theme songs from Disney classics including Mulan, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hunchback of Notre Dame and naturally of course, Newsies. Check out the epic performance below.

The live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid still doesn’t have a director, but it finally secured its leading lady. Chloe Moretz announced via Twitter that she’s playing the titular character in Universal’s highly-anticipated remake.

“Been waiting a long time to tell you guys !! #TheLittleMermaid going to be a beautiful experience! Can’t wait to show everyone my Mermaid!” – Moretz via Twitter

Sofia Coppola was supposed to direct the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale but exited the project over creative differences. Universal’s take on the mermaid who gives up her life in the sea after falling in love with a prince will be decidedly darker than Disney’s animated film.

Do you think Moretz is the perfect choice to take on this part? Excited for a darker and edgier Little Mermaid? Weigh in below.

We’ve already heard Ariana Grande, Ne-Yo and Jessie Ware take on Disney classics for We Love Disney in stores October 30. Now, we have Jessie J’s contribution to the compilation album. Among the ones I’ve heard so far, surprisingly it’s my favorite.

The 27-year-old Brit takes on “Part Of Your World” from The Little Mermaid. Typically, the “Bang Bang” singer goes all out with her vocals. Instead of the bombastic route, Jessie remains true to the whimsical nature of the classic Ariel tune. It’s nice to hear some vocal restraint from her, for a change. Sometimes less is more.

Check out her rendition below, along with the original sung by Jodi Benson. Be sure to weigh in afterward if you think Jessie J aced the assignment or fumbled it.

Amy Adams charmed movie goers in Enchanted as Princess Giselle trying to survive in modern-day Manhattan. Fans have been craving a sequel ever since. Eight years later, it appears the sequel might actually becoming to fruition.

A sequel was first planned in 2010 but nothing has been announced since. Finally some significant news has emerged. Collider reveals the sequel has been renamed from Enchanted 2 to Disenchanted. The news outlet also reports Disney “is now in the process of punching up the script with the hopes that it will be in greenlight-ready shape very soon.”

The film’s original director Anne Fletcher will reportedly return to the director’s chair. No word on whether Amy Adams, James Marsden, Patrick Dempsey, Idina Menzel or Susan Sarandon will reprise their roles. Hopefully, at least Adams does. You can’t have an Enchanted sequel without her. Relive below some of Amy’s memorable musical numbers from the film

Ariana Grande is just one of the artists featured on the forthcoming compilation album, We Love Disney. The likes of Jason Derulo, Jessie J, Tori Kelly, Jessie Ware and Ne-Yo to name a few cover classic tunes from the Mickey vault.

The 22-year-old pint-sized singer chose “Zero To Hero” from the animated film Hercules. To put it bluntly, her efforts are Herculean. Ariana absolutely slays her version with her mighty vocals, culminating to sickeningly flawless high notes. Check out her version below.
