This week’s film quiz wants to be where the people are – 30 questions, some of them about The Little Mermaid and other Disney princesses…

As The Little Mermaid becomes the latest Disney animated classic to get a live-action revamp and, more pressingly, the brilliant underseen action-comedy The Princess is one of dozens of movies and TV shows leaving the Mouse’s streaming service today as part of its latest cost-cutting drive, let’s have a round about Disney princesses! Round 2 covers a lot of animated characters, and on either side, there’s a wonderful world of random trivia about cutlery, train journeys, Muppets, and even that Universal monsters cinematic universe that never happened!

Once you’ve completed all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 34 this week!) and leave us any other lovely feedback. And if it hasn’t yet disappeared in the UK, definitely give The Princess a watch while you’ve still got the chance…
