Would any of these Disney couples actually live happily ever after?

Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker and filmmaker Alan Seawright dive back into the world of Disney animation for round two of ranking Disney romances! They're taking a look at 5 more classic Disney couples to see what's good, what's bad, and what's ugly. This time we've got The Aristocats (Duchess and O'Malley), Hercules (Hercules and Meg), Mulan (Mulan and Shang), The Princess and the Frog (Tiana and Naveen), and Tarzan (Tarzan and Jane) to see which couples might be headed for tough times ahead, and which seem to be on pretty good footing to get to happily ever after. From lying about their identity or goals, to facing preconceived notions about people or life, to literally dying, there's some pretty big hurdles for some of these couples to overcome.

Love the video you guys are great and funny
I would like to see a video based on the relationships between parents and their children. Just watching Brave and seeing merida and her mums relationship better itself from their journey they go on through the film. I'm not sure if this happens in other Disney films, I can't think off the top of my head but I think exploring and looking at more parents and their kids in Disney movies and if their relationships get better or worse depending on the story. Not sure if that makes any sense but 🤷‍♀️ 😄 hope this sparks ideas :)

When they said “Tarzan better build her a Swiss Family Robinson palace”, there was a TV show and they moved into his parents’ tree house. Also there was an episode I loved when Jane’s friends from England actually showed up in the jungle, and Jane is like “Tarzan please wear this suit we’re going to have a garden party” but he refuses, thinking she’s embarrassed of him. So Jane’s dad talks to him and is like “she lives in your jungle world everyday. Would it be so bad if you lived in her ‘civilized’ world for one?” And Tarzan finally gets it. Honestly so many moments in that show that address so many marriage issues lol.

I love how the show expanded the universe, like with the merchant, that brought some "civilization". So it doesn't look so crazy that Jane quit regular life to live between mosquitos and gorillas, because is more like a little colony or settlement. Adding to the dad thing. It shows that is good to have a third parties sometimes, to give perspective. And also support of the family. Imagining changing countries/life styles and your parents will refuse to visit you in Christmas or something. In real life I had meet old people moving to a country with a language they don't speak just to help their daughter/son with the grandchildren and be part of their lives.

@locabsgg94 it's the same thing, they actually stitched together a few episodes from the tv series so they could market it as The Sequel: Tarzan and Jane (or I guess they split the movie up into tv episodes so they could air alongside the rest of the series, depending on how you look at it :P)

I wish you would have commented on how Hercules handled Meg's false advances! He's very respectful of her, she puts her leg down and he looks away and respectfully puts her leg back down, she lets her strap fall off of her shoulder and he fixes it instead of letting it stay down or pulling it down further. I dunno, it just means something to me that he was very clearly attracted to her and yet he respected her instead of objectifying her and looking when he had a chance to.

I get what you're saying, his immediate thoughts are not to just see her as a fun object to be used as soon as possible. Maybe it was all just a bit too fast for him, he may not have even been 'there' before, or maybe he prefers to have an emotional connection with someone first, or at least try to work out what their motivations are. Men like that exist, the fact we expect them all to be immediately up for it when we give them access, & that it's something to be praised when they are not, is a little bit sad. If anything it works out for him though as this leaves him less open to manipulation, by the time he has to make sacrifices for her at least he genuinely cares for her, & her for him, & they can save each other.
Elizabeth Athineu
Actually, Jonathan, Shang DID consider the why and that's what fueled his compassion. Watch the scene again and when Mulan mentions her father, there is absolute heartbreak in Shang's eyes since he knew the pain of worrying about his father at war all of his life but was powerless to save his life. If anything, Shang was angry, but saw her as an equal at least in motivation and truly admired that. Shang may not have been in love with her at the moment, but he respected and silently envied her sacrifice. Their bond is potentially the most powerful of any Disney couple.

Also at the time he should have killed her and if ANY told higher command he spared her life he would get killed for it.

@Nick Chavez Great points.
CMM Vor Monat
I agree. I love Mulan and Shang best of all. One thing I always noticed that I think is often overlooked: Shang spared her as a WARRIOR, not as a person he loved or felt sorry for, or as a woman or out of pity or weakness. He had to make it abundantly clear to his troops as well that you can't just disregard rules because you sympathize the rule-breaker. He told Mulan he would spare her life because she saved his: he respected her contributions as a warrior and the justice of her position. It was scary when he drew his sword, but liked that too because it showed Shang knew Mulan had courage and a sense of justice too; she didn't cower away from him. She understood and appreciated the position he was in too. They were both just great. ❤

I’ve watched this movie countless times (my all time favorite) and u just enlightened me with ur wisdom. I never thought about it. She took her father’s place to save him from dying in war (and to prove to herself that she worth more than what she is credited for by society) and Shang had just lost his father to war and couldn’t save him. How didn’t I think of that!

They forgot to mention that Tarzan chose to go back to England with her first before Clayton's betrayal changed his priorities towards protecting his family, where then Jane changed her mind near the end of the movie. So they both made the choice.

My favorite Disney couple is Rapunzel and Eugene. ESPECIALLY if you watch Tangled: The Series, when he tries to propose to her, and she ultimately says no ( which is shocking for everyone. ) But GOSH, the scene where Eugene talks to her about it, and he's so understanding, compassionate, and basically says he'll wait as long as he has to to make sure she is ready, and he's sorry for springing the question so early. Just, ugh, they're good.

I think Ariel's willingness to throw away her life wasn't just because of Eric but because Triton had just committed a major betrayal of her trust and made her feel like she didn't really have a home where she could feel safe and be herself anymore. So at the time it didn't really feel like a sacrifice, it was like Luke Skywalker leaving Tatooine after the moisture farm was torched.
ᜑᜒᜋᜒᜋ Пинагод
@Rocky Desert Flower I believe there already _was_ a long history of humans killing mermaids (more than likely accidentally due to boats). It was from a series under the Little Mermaid I believe, and Triton's wife was one of the victims.
ᜑᜒᜋᜒᜋ Пинагод
@Nikki Pittman Did you think 'Go and follow a man you absolutely have no information of, trust a shady stranger to give you a journey you think you want, and go risk your life trying!' a better option? I'm aware that Triton was in no way a healthy father but risking everything you have, even the underlying love of your family, just to be with someone you don't know is just as unhealthy in itself. And I feel the need to mention this, but the reason why Triton is this strict is because their mother died due to humans - And they _saw_ it. The daughters knew about the dangers, everyone knew about the dangers, so it's not like this anger came out of nowhere. I mean have you seen the stuff humans do to sea creatures? If mermaids would actually exist, it's pretty understandable why they wouldn't have made themselves known to us by now. I can acknowledge that Ariel is a young soul, and she wants to get on adventures, but that doesn't mean her actions were justified. Edit: Found the link: de-vid.com/video/video-KYN1zyNLUfI.html

@AceLovesDIYs Christopher yes, especially when you are 16, don't know much about life, have hyper focused on one solution to your problems (such as running away or being with another person) & are not able to see when someone much older is manipulating your despair, offering you what you 'want' & a way out, when really they have their own agenda (which includes hurting you). It could work as a pretty good life lesson. Be careful when you are young, in the grips of 'first love', & despairing of family members toxic behaviours. This is when you are vulnerable to bad decisions & manipulation.

Well actually coming from a Black woman I loved "Princess and The Frog." I loved how they went a totally different route rather than two people liking eachother off the bat because one was royalty. I loved how Tiana was an independent, hard working woman because that's who I am, my mother and my grandmother are. Also how much she loved and admired her father, making his dream her dream. She just had to understand that his dream was more than owning a restaurant. I also enjoyed how they showed her that there is more to life than just working hard that if you work too hard you'll miss out on life. I enjoyed Naveens WHOLE transformation from being a spoiled little rich boy to a unselfish husband. Both characters balanced one another out, Tiana the responsible one Naveen the one full of life. They rounded eachother out. So, personally I very much enjoyed this movie it's one of my favorites. Because other than her skin, I seen so much of me. People who only fixed on her being a frog missed the whole reason why she was a frog. But hey, others opinion. Also Soul, soul was just beautiful art wise. There was enough black people and black culture in that movie to look past the main character being a spirit. But hey, again my opinion. Edit: Lol yeah, I wrote this at the shame part. Didn't see what was said after yet.

With Shang, I noticed after a couple more watches that after Mulan told him about the Huns and before he meets the emperor, he does very subtly look around. So he did believe her. And as for Naveen, the very first time he meets Tiana, he flirts with her but she brushes him off. And rather than doing the cliche of pushing it, he just casually accepted the rejection and went on his way. I always liked that about him.

Not to mention the fact that while sometimes in fiction, even when the guys have thinner legs than the girls (whether they be extra or slim or just by comparison if not in general THICC), we’re going to have to make an exception with Tiana and Naveen (as frogs) because while Naveen was never EXTRA THICC, he, as a frog, certainly has wider legs than Tiana, who would be even more meaty as a human in the veins of the Disney Princesses who came before Moana, who is the most muscular one (especially the legs) alongside Mulan (THICC).

I think Milo and Kida from Atlantis: The Lost Empire would be a great addition to another Disney Couples episode! Their dynamic and the way their relationship progresses is really interesting; it feels like a cross between Tarzan/Jane (in the sense of Milo teaching Kida how to read her language) and Fix-it Felix/Sergeant Calhoun (in the sense of less physically strong but resourceful guy and strong woman).
Midnight Cassiopeia
PLEASE. The best relationship in Disney at all (ok caveat, David and Nani). There's no immediate kiss, no romance right off the bat, he's simply there to support and appreciate her and she's there to learn from and teach him. They're friends to start and they trust and respect each other. It's fantastic!

This is late and probably will be lost in the the thousands of comments but I honestly really like Tangled with Rapunzel and Eugene. Especially in their TV show (which is actually really good). They have a real and genuine relationship that I have never seen in any other Disney franchise. They also deal with Rapzunzel’s trauma in a way that many other shows shy away from.

9:30 I used to think Shang just told Mulan to go home because he was angry at her for deceiving him too. And while I still think he was angry at her, I think he also was trying to protect her. He spared her life in the mountains, and here she comes, dressed in men's clothes, in a PARADE in the CAPITAL CITY. He knows he can't intimidate Chi-Fu into keeping his mouth shut like he did before. Not to mention his other soldiers. I think he believed her, or at least was open to the possibility, and was trying to make her leave before people started asking questions.

I not agreeing that much. But indeed, seconds before the enemies went out of the dragon costume, he was 'looking around', suspecting and wondering. So, if could be that he was suspecting because he took in consideration Mulan's words, or he was just thinking 'wtf this dragon so close, they are breathing in my neck '
FireDogBreads Vor 29 Tage
While I see your reasoning and where you are coming from, I disagree. When I watch the parade scene, right after Mulan told Shang that the Huns were alive, he immediately dismissed it. He didn't even take a few seconds to think it over. He just disregarded what she was saying, and if he was truly open to the possibility that there was an ENEMY GROUP IN THE CITY, I think anyone in their right mind would take necessary precautions, especially considering it's his job. And even he was trying to protect her, that isn't doing justice to Mulan, to her character, or her accomplishments. She saved his life, even if he didn't trust her, he should at least take her seriously. I think where their relationship left off is a healthy place, but I wouldn't defend his actions. (Not hating on the movie, the characters, or where their relationship was at the end of the movie, BTW. Love Mulan!☺)
infinitekurosoul Vor 2 Monate
I wouldn't call Tarzan making Jane say she'll stay to the baby gorillas manipulative, considering he really thought that was the case. He was misled by Clayton, he was lied to that showing them the gorillas would allow them to stay. He doesn't understand how their world works, to him it made sense, he had no way of knowing what it actually meant. He genuinely thought he was just saying the truth.

Also something I like about that scene is that he viewed it as a very simple choice. If she wants to stay, she should stay. Essentially, Carpe Diem. We have as humans a gift for talking ourselves out of amazing experiences that are suddenly presented to us. We convince ourselves that it’s complicated, and a totally out of the question option. But sometimes when we encounter someone who actually voices something that we were afraid to dream about, it somehow becomes a REAL option. Sometimes it really IS as simple as saying, “yes, deep down I truly do want to take this chance.”

Glad you gave Tiana and Naveen the respect they deserve! They’re my favorite Disney couple because there was actual substance to why they fell in love. They both had something the other lacked. Tiana was hard working but never made time to have fun. Naveen only had fun and never made time for hard work. But by getting to know and understand one another, they learn that there needs to be a balance, ultimately, growing as both individuals and as a couple.

I know that Bluey isn't a movie, but I seriously would love to see if you two had a Top 5 Best Parenting/Relationship-Building Episode list! Kids are supposed to learn from Bluey, but parents are learning just as much. I also love that it's a series focusing a lot on a father that not only is involved with his children, but his daughters. And he doesn't complain about them constantly! 👍 He actually loves them and nowhere says he wished he had boys. As a girl who also had an older sister, I wish I saw that when I was little.

@Liam Isaac Yeah, it's real tough when your best isn't good enough, especially when you know that kids in institutions usually don't have it good enough either. A lot of desperate parents will take the devil they know, and a lot of social workers will do the same. Trouble is the parent knows their self, and the social worker knows the system. It's a hard thing all around.
i also think its unfair to call Tarzan manipulative for promising the gorillas. He was told (clayton insinuated) that if she saw the gorilla she would stay. So he thought now that she seen them, she would stay. He had not been taught the complexities of human interaction very well and would not understand that just because she saw them that would change her choice. He takes many things at face value with a simpler mindset.

The older I get and the longer I’m married the more I appreciate Thomas and Duchess’ relationship. I find that scene on the rooftop so romantic!
I think the one part you guys really missed on Shang and Mulan was the motive behind Shang trying to send Mulan away after they find out she's a woman. He was supposed to kill her, the penalty for what she did was death. He very well could have been trying to send her away for her own good, and the guilt during the parade is knowing that everyone is alive because of Mulan.

@Lore Catan no yeah I totally agree, but I feel like this theme would stand out a lot more if it was about an actual human single mom with children. I think this story’s message is mostly the fact that a single mother can still fall in love with a guy that loves her and her kids equally. I never questioned the fact that she was a single mother as a kid because they’re cats, and I knew that with animals, being a single parent is normal. Ofc changing the cats to humans would make the story really boring for a child, and I still love it non the less. But I feel like the idea of Duchess not being shamed for being a single mom falls flat just because she’s cat. However in all cases, single parents should NEVER be shamed. People change, and sometimes tragic things happen that we cannot control. Which is why I love the Aristocats’ message that some strangers can become family

What I love about Tiana and Naveen the most is how they both improve each other and themselves. And I think it was summed up best when I met the pair at Disney World years ago and Naveen said to me, 'Do you know how it's true love? She's the only one who can make me wash the dishes.'

I used to have a relationship with a boy who came from a completely different culture than I. In his culture, the woman is subservient and I was raised as an independent, western girl with her own wants and wishes. Our economic backgrounds didn't work either. I ended up paying for everything all the time since he would get himself in debt just to give me something nice. Besides that, he was super manically depressed and put all of his struggles in my lap to fix and that was never going to work at all. (note: if you or your partner suffer from mental health issues, please go find a professional to handle it, don't dump it all on your partner)

LISTEN. re: the little mermaid. what does have to be understood is not just the context of ariel previously having a dream of going up to the surface, but that her decision to trust ursula (and ursula's decision to swoop in and prey on ariel when she did) came DIRECTLY after her father had just absolutely destroyed her secret, sacred place. triton blew up her entire grotto full of things, and it was FULL of things, meaning she had dedicated years of her life to this collection. she has twenty whole thingamabobs and her dad invades her safe space and destroys them. that's scary, that's invasive, and that's a HUGE factor in why she's able to make the decision to abandon everything in the moment. i'm sure your issues also lie in her leaving the sea ultimately in the end, and that's a little more fair, but also, i mean... they aren't dead to her. the merfolk all show up to ariel's wedding at the end of the film, meaning they aren't a secret to be hidden, and eric lives right on the beach, so ariel's family can always visit her. at the end of the day i think ariel always felt alienated by the society she grew up in, and it does make sense to me that she would make the penultimate decision to stay on land, even if she and eric do wind up breaking up, you know? like i think she will still feel more fulfilled with legs on the shore regardless of if they work out.

Thank you for rating Aristocats the best. Growing up it was my favorite movie, just because I love cats! I actually wore out our copy of the videotape, so we got a DVD copy. When I was older and better able to appreciate story and animation and all that, I loved it even more. My dad pointed out that the kittens are named after famous people who were French or associated with France: Marie Antionette is rather obvious, but Berlioz was a famous composer and Toulouse was a famous painter, and they even included those influences in the movie!

Can we also appreciate the fact that from the word "go" Megara was being manipulated by Hades? It was not her decision to deceive Herc; she didn't have a choice. Even then, she stands up to Hades after getting to know Hercules: "I don't care, I'm not going to help you hurt him". And her character growth is amazing - she goes from resenting men because she was so deeply hurt by one to sacrificing her own life to save Hercules.

I want to point out how Naveen specifically says as he is practicing his proposal, “I can get a job, maybe two!” This says a LOT about how much he respects Tiana and her desires and dreams. He comes from royalty and could probably win his parents over to get them money, but no. He is excited at the thought of supporting her through genuine hard work, just like she has always done. It shows he is willing to make sacrifices for her and that he now shares her dreams and aspirations. And the best part is that, in the end, they find happiness and a comfortable lifestyle in the middle.

Tarzan and Jane are one of my favorite (or even my favorite) Disney couple since their relationship develops over time and, even if its a montage, we get to see it bloom. Most disney couples have the '3 day' trope where they fall in love over a short period of time, but iirc its stated in Tarzan that the group had been in the jungle for several weeks. and the romance wasn't immediate, it started as curious friendship and there was a lot of mutual between them- she showed him human society/reading/writing, etc, and he would show her parts of the jungle (also the look they give one another in the montage where she looks away shyly and he just stares at her is so aaaaaaa)

I've always adored The Princess and the Frog because it was one of the first movies in which I personally could ever identify character growth on *both* sides. It wasn't just "Oh, the guy decided he could give up his free wheeling ways," or "The hard working girl realized she had to cut loose once in a while." There was a middle ground that they discovered together. And then you throw in Lotti, who was willing to pass on her dream of marrying a prince so that she could save her friend. There is so much selfless love in this movie, and it remains a favorite of mine to this day.

Lottie and Tiana are an awesome example of best friends being there for each other.

If Tiana hadn't been so determined to do things herself I guarantee you that restaurant would have been open long ago. I've been in both situations myself, being the one down and needing help but not wanting to just let someone else do it all for you, and being the one trying to help and getting the "you can help but I Don't want charity" attitude. They really are a great example of true friendship and I love them for that.

Mulan and Shang are my favorite because they have a relationship built on mutual respect. He doesn’t do a 180 when he finds out she’s a woman he already has a trust and respect but now that feeling can grow in an unexpected way. It’s the best because there was zero chance of romance when they met which means any emotions and impressions are pure and I uninfluenced by lust and romance. I think he’s allowed to feel a little betrayed by the lie but he comes around quickly and sheds an entire cultural norm and bias in less than ten minutes. He approaches the romance after with respect and no expectations. I don’t know I just think they are the gold standard of the Disney princess line up

now that i think about it, mulan and shang's relationship were actually toxic, it was even more so visible in "Mulan 2" where it focused more on their relationship, they always had misunderstandings and it was shown that they didn't have trust for each other, but of course it's disney so in the end, everything works out.

Tarzan *was* planning to go to England with Jane first. Situations changed after his gorilla-dad died, so he had to change his mind, but I think it makes her decision a little more equal in context. She knew he was willing to sacrifice everything he knew to stay with her, then he had to sacrifice his future happiness with her to help out at home, so it makes sense for her to be like "you know what, I like this guy, I think it's my turn to give something up". ((I also think that her dad immediately deciding to stay in the jungle with them takes away some of the impact of her sacrifice, since she doesn't have to give up her family any more, but she didn't know he was going to do that so it doesn't impact the scale of *her* choice))
@kalef It's been about three years since I've binged the series (thanks to a lack of availability), but I thought the treehouse was a new one built together in middle the jungle?

@Lunar Siren I guess he's a gorilla-adoptive father, since he didn't gorilla-marry Kala *after* she adopted Tarzan. Or he's a gorilla-estranged parent, who Tarzan desperately wants to be a father figure. I will say, I called him a gorilla-dad to differentiate between Tarzan's human-dad, who we also see die during the movie. Tarzan is a special Disney character, we see three of his parents die during the course of the film. Quite the overachiever.

When it comes to conflict of interest, it's one of the reasons long distance relationships don't work out. For example: I met someone online who I got along with very well, totally compatible, but she was never gonna be willing to leave her country or city and I was in the same boat. We each had everything we knew and loved in our respective locations and would see no point in moving to unfamiliar territory. So, I didn't pursue since I knew the outcome.

Really like Tom O’Malley and Duchess, they have a charming relationship that isn’t too gushy but not dramatic. The story focuses on the adventure, and through that adventure Duchess enchants Tom while Duchess is smitten by O’Malley. The kittens are a part of the story, not like side characters we see in typical cartoon romance, but active participants. I think Tom shows up roughly 15 minutes in the film, giving Duchess and the kittens time to know the characters and see the problems they face before O’Malley shows up. So we as the audience enjoy Tom and Duchess both individually and see them blossom their relationship naturally, it’s not a forced relationship. However, with Tiana and Navine I personally would switch them with Shang and Mulan. Shang and Mulan are interesting in that Shang knew nothing about Mulan as a female till later in the film, but by then he learned to trust Mulan because he unusual methods turned into an asset. He learned to respect her, not because she was a female who potentially could be his bride, but she earned that respect in his eyes. In the meantime, even while trying to portray as a male soldier, Mulan did reach out to Shang to give him support, whether it was encouragement or when he realized he lost his father in the war. Both eventually learned to care about each other, Shang was hesitant to listen to Mulan when she was trying to warn him because she did break his trust. We was coming around to admiring her before it was revealed she was a woman the whole time. Most people validly will be upset when they feel duped. But push comes to shove, when Shang was at his wits end of saving the emperor, Mulan still came through and it likely showed Shang that Mulan is the same even though she is a woman. She gained his trust and admiration back, but in a new context, for the fact that now he knew she was still going to find ways to solve the problems of even though she was a woman. He ends up appreciating her efforts more than the woman who saved China, keep in mind he witnessed her struggle as a soldier. By the end of the movie he was fighting her honor when the annoying documenter was upset that they let a woman fight the enemy. When in the beginning and through out the story, Mulan was trying to find honor for her family, specifically her father. It’s Shang who ends up looking after fighting for Milan’s honor. Just personally see more respect from Mulan and Shang than I do with Tiana and Navine, both don’t have chemistry, but the film ends Mulan on a starting path with Shang in their romance. When we see the Princess and the Frog, sure there’s growth, but there seems to be a rushed growth when we got two characters that have little in common. Navine branches out to Tiana’s interests, but what way did Navine help her grow in character? The relationship just doesn’t show balance for personalities that seem to strain when together. Just think the story could have found a different way to help develop their characters while balancing falling in love. Just imo.

7:55 When it's done well, I think that AS A PLOT "start the relationship with a lie, then grow past it" works great. A relationship which just starts off functional because both partners are wise and emotionally mature enough to handle it is obviously ideal in real life and can be soothing and pleasant to watch in fiction, but it's generally not intrinsically interesting like one where character flaws, misjudgements, or circumstances force the relationship to start out in a bad place and we can root for the characters to fix it and end the movie at least in a healthy place to start a relationship. My personal favorite version is the one where one partner goes to dramatic lengths trying to impress the other when it's completely unnecessary and counterproductive. 8:55 honestly, this applies to a lot more than just romantic relationships. I honestly think it's one of the biggest things wrong with American business culture, that patterns of failure are seen as misbehavior to be punished rather than a problem to be solved, which means that often the people who are valued most and therefore promoted to leadership roles aren't people who are qualified or able to improve, they're people who are good at sweeping things under the rug and who refuse to admit that they made a bad call even if it means doubling down and making things worse. 15:25 The way I'd put it is that a healthy relationship means that all involved should benefit overall. Sure sometimes one partner gets their way and the other has to make a sacrifice, but that should generally be a balance of fairness and optimization, not just one person sacrificing by default. And sacrifice also shouldn't be the focus of a relationship, because if it's actually working most of your interactions should be ones that leave you both happier, with willing and reasonable sacrifices being how you handle the rare cases where that's not feasible.

Sophie Amanda Leiton Toomey
I think Shang is more compassionate for Mulan and the why in that moment than you give him credit for. The very second Mulan reveals she did all of it to save her Dad, he immediately looks up in shock. Because he gets it. The war took his own father from him and he didn’t even get a chance to try to save him whereas Mulan sacrificed everything to save hers, fully accepting even the possibility of either dying in war or being caught and killed. You can see the conflict on his face as he considers whether or not to go through with the law of killing Mulan which eventually leads to his decision to let her go. There is compassion here even if Shang is putting up a front to keep his pride in tact and his soldiers still under his command. They both loved their fathers so much and as a result, they understood each other. Even if Shang is hurt about the deception, he still has to maintain his composure and have no outward compassion to keep pride and not look weak in front of his soldiers.

@Warrior Maiden Mulan has a hard role in this too, because just by virtue of what she's chosen up to this point, her existence is in opposition to what Shang has chosen to do in his life. by the standards of their society, Mulan was supposed to bring honor to her family by leaning into her prescribed role, and becoming a better woman. instead, she broke the rules at great personal risk and would've ended up dying, sacrificing literally everything she had to give, if it weren't for the fact that it's Shang's call, and Shang identifies with her. and Mulan's method worked. she didn't just save her father... she saved all the soldiers on that mountainside, and Shang personally. she literally took an arrow for him, which was what blew her cover in the first place. everybody that Mulan has decided to protect has lived. and that ability was only accessible to her because she was non-compliant. meanwhile, everything Shang has done so far has been an attempt to lean in, and be a better man... and what does he have to show for it? it is really painful, because it critiques conformity as a strategy for achieving your desired ends, and potentially recontextualizes his whole life path as a wrong move. but if that is true... then he needs to know. that is the difficult role that Mulan has taken up, just by being who she is. she's the one who makes this difficult truth apparent. and instead of hating her for it... he loves her. of course he's not at liberty to pivot his opinion on her immediately, but you can tell that he wasn't entirely alright with leaving her behind. the other soldiers aren't either. they just won against the Huns, as far as they know, but nobody is celebrating. because the person who deserves the credit for that victory was mercilessly ejected from their midst due to an arbitrary standard that really doesn't feel like it should matter. but it has to... doesn't it? well, no, it doesn't. Mulan shows up again, with new information, capable as she's ever been and unwilling to back down. she's still got people to protect, and disrupting the status quo hasn't been a wrong move for her yet. the real question is... can she convince the others to break the mold with her? she can't do this alone... they all became capable together. the confrontation in the mountain wasn't where they used what they'd learned, it's here. the real test starts then, and it mostly hinges on whether Shang can recognize and utilize the skills of one of his best soldiers. their relationship goes far beyond romance... honestly, it probably wasn't even a romance until the last couple minutes of the movie. but the relationship that was there is really interesting, and very important for them both.

I think the law part is very very important. As a high ranked militar, Shang had the duty to kill her, but he didn't; he said it's bc she saved her life, but it's clearly not a difficult choice for him to take (let Mulan alive). So he shows he has values that are more important than just follow the laws of his nation and also that he actually liked her (as a person, not romantically).

DUCHESS AND O'MALLY FOREVER!!! My favorite Disney couple ever!!! Me and my husband are opposite sides of the tracks, so to speak. But we're ten years in and have ended up closer to the poor side (where he grew up). We spent a lot of time early relationship talking about life experiences and visiting each other's childhood haunts. We have a seven-month-old daughter now and are trying to pull on our combined wisdom to be the best parents we can be!!

What I love about Hercules and Meg, is that he has orange hair and wears a red headband and she has red hair and wears an orange headband. It symbolises the fact that they complete each other 🧶🧡🍊🧣

You talked about how in Hercules, Aladdin and Mulan the relationship starts with a lie. But Hercules and Aladdin’s respective relationships had started with a lie on the purpose to base their romantic relationship on it, while Mulan lied to be drafted to the military, not to seduce Shang to a romantic relationship. They had created a relationship based on a lie but it was a commander-soldier relationship. Mulan is the first Disney princess movie that didn’t center around romance but around feminism and self worth.

God I love your videos. I've learned a lot about self-love and how not to screw up my relationships, and how to mend some messed up bridges. You guys are always so funny as well, makes for an entertaining half-hour every few days. Thanks for being entertainingly educational. Recommendation for the next romances, if you guys do another one: Captain Emelia and Doctor Delbert, from Treasure Planet?

ooh have they done a ranking Pixar couples video yet? Because them, Carl and Ellie, Buzz and Jessie, Woody and Jessie, Bob and Helen Parr of course, Colette and Linguini, Lightning McQueen and Sally, and Atta and Flik make for some interesting looks at relationships all 'round! (I think I got all the main relationships in Pixar films?? I guess Violet and Tony count too??)

You guys have talked about putting your partner first, but not instead, and how your partner's happiness/needs should be the most important thing to you in a healthy partnership many times! Would you be able to explain what you mean by putting your partner first, versus instead, and what those things may look like? What does healthy self-care and esteem look like when you're putting your partner's needs and happiness ahead of your own? I ask because I've seen people disagree and I've seen people say 'you need to put on your own oxygen mask first' multiple times. This strikes me as a a misunderstanding of what healthy relationships are meant to be, but I can't articulate why. I'd love to see you go more into examples of this idea!

I love watching these kinds of videos, people analyzing love in different stories. I've never had a good representation of love in my life with my own relationships, familial or otherwise. "It's about you wanting their dreams to happen, it's not, 'do this and I'll be happy." Thats exactly how my family has always been, as well as my 2 relationships, and that hit home very hard. But I also like how even if I dont feel the things other people do when they love someone, i realize that my actions speak for myself instead. I do want my close friends to be happy, and even if im bad at it sometimes i do work to make that happen. I feel numb more often than not so sometimes its really hard to understand how i feel about others. This video is a lot of reassurance of things ive been pondering for awhile. Please continue to do what you do, i am a big fan and im sure its not just me youre helping out and entertaining with these videos. :]

I stille firmly believe that Bernard and Bianca from The Rescuers are the best couple in Disney animated movies :D I haven't watch Down Under in a hot second so I can't really tell if they keep it that way but in the first movie they're just **chef's kiss** muah ! Sweet and cute and perfect

I too am a sucker for the “one partner fumbling/being awkward but other partner finds it cute” trope. But these gentleman are correct is that it only works when they already like you. I could have use a bit more focus on Shang’s epic compliment, “you fight good”

Honestly we cannot ignore how by the end of Mulan II they reach balance and mutual understanding and respect. My husband and I resemble Li Shang and Fa Mulan in a lot of ways. But of course we don’t have that same plot development 😅 I always had a big old fat crush on Li Shang as a child. It really was as mushu said those broad shoulders (and his hair)

If you guys ever do another one of these, it'd be nice to see La Muerte and Xibalba from The Book of Life get ranked, even if it isn't a disney movie. I enjoyed the two love ranking videos a lot, and whatever you guys do next will be awesome regardless :)

I love to see some Aristocats appreciation. I've loved that movie since I was small and it's always had this odd charm to it. Not perfect, definitely, but a very fun, cute movie with a romantic element that I just love. So many iconic scenes, like the paint piano, the piano falling through floors during the song, the strange drunk goose, and that romantic scene they looked at with Thomas and Duchess. I love the cats and their blended family man, and I know her name's Duchess but she is the queen, y'all.

I'm really happy I watcherd this one. I'm in a relationship with another person of a rich background and for some time it was fine but with the years our econonomic differences have grown and it's beeing challenging. I didn't think to look for counselling but now I believe if we want to keep together and get back on track it is the best start. Thank you for the help!

Tarzan has always been my favorite movie since I was a kid. I also loved the spin off TV show Tarzan and Jane. It gave a view point of their life in the Jungle after Jane and the Professor choose to stay. One awesome thing is the Treehouse Tarzan/ the Apes and Tarzan build for the couple and the professor. Not to mention in the TV series Jane is treated like Queen of the Jungle (I don't recall them explicitly calling her such, but she was treated as such.)
