Disney just does not stop when it comes to giving us hit after hit with their movies! It's crazy because this company has been around for almost 100 years and still captures the attention of the audience in every single one of its films.
While we may never know their secret, we do know their characters, to a point where some of us have brought them home. And it doesn't matter if you have an Elsa poster, a Moana doll, the key to Davy Jones' chest or some Mickey Mouse ears; the point is that you know the main characters.
But we aren't focusing on them today. Today, we want to discuss the other smaller roles that make the big ones so great. So could you answer a question about Hei Hei (Moana's chicken) if we gave you one? Could you tell us the name of Mufasa's advisor and closest friend (yes, the bird)? And could you tell us the name of the gorgeous gypsy that Quasimodo fell for in "The Hunchback of Notre Dame?"
While it's great to know the names of the characters that really shine in the movie, you can't call yourself a Disney fan if you don't know the names of the minor ones as well. So let's find out if you deserve that title or not.
When Mufasa dies, Simba must muster his courage to be the new king.
A very plain name for a rather animated character, I should say.
Remember cute little Flounder? What a sweetheart!
Lumiere is the talking candlestick. He wanted Belle to be his guest!
She had black and white hair. That's the evilest hair style there is.
She was a pretty fox. In real life, foxes aren't so gentle, but they're beautiful!
Esmeralda is the Romani dancer that he falls in love with. Her goat's name is Djali.
Oh, little Christopher Robin. What a sweet friend to have.
Jiminy Cricket, of course! Who can forget him?
Pegasus is the name of the flying horse. That's also the name of a constellation.
Daisy Duck is Donald's beloved girlfriend? Wife? Sister? Disney mystery.
Little bit of Disney originality right there! Can't forget that name.
Zazu could get on your nerves. And he was evil.
Remember Gus and Jaq? Great friends to have!
Nobody liked Anastasia and Drizella. Drizella is a dinosaur name.
Dear old Geppetto. Loyal and trustworthy.
Chief Powhatan loved his daughter, but he was insistent she should marry Kocoum.
Handsome, dashing John Smith. Not to be confused with Joseph Smith.
Remember them in red, green, and blue? Everyone wants friends like them.
Remember sweet little Meeko? In real life, raccoons are not that nice.
Merida had some serious red hair. And she wielded a bow and arrow! And yet, even though she is a main Disney character, she's not talked about very much.
Made famous by Angelina Jolie. Magnificent!
Michael and John Darling got sent off to Neverland, and boy, did they have a good time!
Remember Baloo? He was so cute!
Sir Hiss had terrible hissing sounds. He was quite evil.
Pongo was the lovable dalmatian in the movie. Perdita was his lady friend.
Kanga and Roo are the lovable kangaroos! The names make sense.
Poor LeFou. He can be so awkward, but he's a good companion.
Chip is the beloved teacup from "Beauty and the Beast," and Chip is the chipmunk partner to Dale.
Everyone fell in love with Prince Eric. Tall, dark, handsome....
Simba and Nana go together like peanut butter and jelly.
Bubbles is not a fairy, but it seems like a good name for one.
Remember Scuttle? He helped Ariel out so much!
She was called Blue Fairy. Pretty creative.
There was no Br'er Panda, but there should have been.
