What’s this? Do you wanna build a snowman? Can you feel the love tonight? None of these questions appear in this week’s film quiz, but some other Disney songs do.

Disney’s 60th animated feature, Encanto, is a musical. A lot of the House of Mouse’s animated features are. For example, according to one song, A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes, which is a nice thought. Then again, that vast songbook also says Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah, Higitus Figitus, and Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, so maybe it’s all a load of nonsense. Either way, we’ve got a few of those famous tunes peppered throughout your weekly film quiz.

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! Want to let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback? Be our guest! That’s another one…
