“Fandom is the cradle of the next generation of creative people.” – Steven Moffat, showrunner of Doctor Who.
In honor of this sentiment, I have compiled a list of my favorite Disney-related YouTube videos, because, damn, these people are creative.
5) Cinderfella by Todrick Hall
A gender bent Cinderella story with pop music, Disney character cameos, and a strong “love is love” message? Yes, please.
4) Wonder of Disney Animation by Nick Kinder
Think this is your average Disney tribute fanvid? Think again. I was almost in tears. If anyone wants to know why I’m 23 and still love Disney, they need only look at this video.
3) African Tribalized Cover of “Let it Go” by Alex Boye
I didn’t think anything could compare to Idina Menzel’s version of the song. But, damn…
Little girl, get your butt on Broadway right this minute.
2) Beauty and the Beat by Todrick Hall
No. This has nothing to do with Justin Bieber. Rather, this is another elaborate masterpiece by Todrick Hall which answers the burning question fans have been wanting to know for years: what if Beauty and the Beast took place in the ghetto?
And the best Disney-inspired video on the internet is…
1) After Ever After Medley by Paint
Sometimes I fantasize that I came up with something this funny and clever. That’s how good it is.
Honorable Mention: Disney Dudez by Todrick Hall
What if the Disney princes became a boy band?
I just love Todrick Hall.
Keep up the good work, internet!
