Film Quiz Friday: The Re-Disneyfied Edition

Share this Article:

There’s no Premiere Access required for this week’s quiz, which includes questions about Disney’s live-action remakes and various other bits of movie trivia.

We’ve cooked up another 30 questions for you to enjoy over the weekend, with a specialist round on Disney films. As Mulan arrives on Disney+, this week’s questions relate to the studio’s live-action remakes, but as with many of those films, you may find the answers share a fair bit of crossover with the original animated versions too.

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. Please do get in touch in the comments and let us know how you did (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. Here goes…
