9 Epic Disney Moments That Will Inspire You
Let’s face it, we all have days when we’re feeling less than motivated; we wake up on the wrong side of the bed, we’re exhausted, and things just aren’t going our way. In case that’s you today (and we really hope it isn’t), here are some key Disney moments we turn to for inspiration when we need it:
This is maybe one of the most empowering moments ever put to film. When Mulan reaches the top of this pole, especially when no other soldier can, it takes all of our effort not to scream, “you go, girl,” loudly and with passion.
Even the weather responds epically to this moment, as it starts raining—and not just any rain—magical rain that transforms the Pride Lands back to their former glory. Thus is Simba’s power.
When Hercules Jumps into the River Styx
A mere mortal would not have survived the trip, but Hercules’s sacrifice proved that he was a true hero (and turned him into a God). Not a bad day’s work.
Everything about this moment gives us goosebumps: the music, the intense color scheme, the power of Pocahontas’s will. It’s all so beautiful, and gets us every time.
We can do anything we put our minds to with enough hard work and perseverance, and Tiana reminds us of this.
A small, quiet act can sometimes be just as powerful as a bigger one. When Belle whispers to Beast, in his last moments, that she loves him, she ends up saving his life and securing her happy ending.
Okay, so Maleficent is a villain. But, you have to admit that no one makes an entrance quite like she does. One of our live goals is to make such a lasting (albeit less overtly evil) first impression.
This moment is quintessential, classic, and the definition of good triumphing. Pinocchio had to learn that his biggest challenge was overcoming his own self-doubt and when he did (listening to his conscience didn’t hurt either) he was worthy of his wish.
Quasimodo literally breaks his chains apart and repels down the walls of Notre Dame cathedral to get to Esmerelda just in time to save her life. We are in awe.
Just in case this isn’t enough epic for you, add even more epic to your day with the Coffee-mate Star Wars collection available now at Walmart. Whether you enjoy your coffee with the Light side or the Dark side, it’s sure to be delicious.
