CONSIDERING how we have the movies playing in the background all-day, everyday, we consider ourselves to be diehard Disney experts.
But just because we can recite the chronological order of all the Disney Princess movies without a second thought, that doesn't mean we've picked up on every single Easter egg in the Disney universe.
And that's where Disney superfan Juju comes in.
The American TikTok star has racked up over 1.2 MILLION followers on his account Straw Hat Goofy thanks to his incredible knowledge of both modern Pixar movies and Disney's classic films.
And while we always thought we knew everything about Beauty and The Beast, did you know that Belle makes a secret appearance in another Disney movie?
Belle's Secret Cameo
Earlier this month, Juju blew fans' minds when he revealed that Belle makes a split-second cameo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
He explained: "We know Beauty and The Beast is set in France and we know Belle likes to read and walk.
"Well in The Hunchback of Notre Dame, you can literally see Belle during the 'Out There' song."
In the blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment, Belle is seen with her nose in a book and walking through the square in Paris as Quasimodo looks down from the tower.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame was released in 1996 – five years after Beauty and The Beast.
Lion King and Hercules crossover
In one of The Lion King's first scenes, Mufasa confronts his brother Scar after he missed Simba's presentation to the animal kingdom.
After the brothers butt heads, cheeky Zazu tells the King that Scar would make a "very handsome throw rug".
As this diehard Disney fan points out, this prophecy is then realised three years later in 1997's Hercules.
He said: "Next time we see [Scar] is in Hercules as, more or less, a throw rug."
Buzz's BNL batteries
As all Wall-E fans will remember, the 2008 movie follows a robot cleaning up planet Earth while humans live on the spaceship Axiom.
In another viral video, Juju highlighted a little-known Wall-E and Toy Story crossover that's left us stunned.
He said. "In the movie Wall-E, we see that humanity has more or less been taken over by this company called BNL.
"The branding is very over the top. So when I was watching Toy Story 3, I was shocked watching the scene where they open up Buzz's battery pack and his batteries are powered by BNL."
Aladdin's Magic Carpet in Princess and The Frog
We know that Aladdin's magic carpet can go anywhere in the world at a moment's notice – but did you know it flew to New Orleans in the Princess and The Frog movie?
In the opening credits of the 2009 movie, a woman is seen hanging over her balcony and shaking out a purple rug.
Zooming in the carpet, he said: "Let's talk about the magic carpet and how it made its way to New Orleans in the Princess and The Frog.
"I think he was trying to go to mardi gras."
The Beast and Sebastian's split-second Aladdin appearances
Now don't feel bad for missing these ones – because they're the definition of split-second cameos.
In the 1992 movie, Disney worked in TWO Easter eggs with characters from other movies.
Early on in the movie, The Sultan is seen building an elaborate tower out of figurines – and if you look closely, you'll see The Beast.
The superfan said: "Now I know we all love Beauty and The Beast – and it turns out, The Sultan was also a fan.
"Cause if you look close enough, you'll see he was playing with a Beast figurine in his collection."
What's more, Sebastian from the 1989 movie The Little Mermaid also appears for only a second as he grabs hold of the Genie's finger.
He said: "Beast isn't the only character to stop by in Aladdin though.
"Good ol' crab Sebastian also makes an appearance in the movie!"
