What Exactly Was The Disney Renaissance?
I know you’ve been there. You’re at a cocktail party. And there’s a discussion about Disney films; when someone with a pinky ring says, “You know, The Rescuers Down Under was the second animated movie of the Disney Renaissance…”
“Huh?” you think?
Yeah, me too. Enter SuperCarlinBrothers.
The Disney Renaissance Explained
According to one of the SuperCarlinBrother’s many outlets:
Jonathan “J” and Ben Carlin are a sibling vlogger duo known best for their extreme fandom and wild over analyzation of Pixar movies and other various related media including Disney, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Marvel, and Pokemon. They started Super Carlin Brothers in 2012 and took on the Vlogbrothers “Brotherhood 2.0 Challenge,” attempting to have a year-long conversation via YouTube. After successfully completing the challenge, they decided to continue uploading videos twice a week, which they continue to do today. They have currently amassed an audience of over 1-Million subscribers over 165 Million video views and have become two of the most well know fan theorists on YouTube.
One of their latest videos tackled “The Disney Renaissance”:
They teased their video, writing:
Today J dives into the history of Disney from The Little Mermaid to Tarzan to explain what the Disney Renaissance was, why it happened, why it ended, what’s up with all the giant rocks and how it’s all connected!

I really enjoyed this video, and it reminded me that I have a bit of a hole in my memory of Disney movie viewing. However, I think that The Little Mermaid is my favorite of the bunch, with Hercules coming in a close second.
