New Disney shorts coming soon! (revised again)

Sorry to report that we made another little mistake yesterday when we revised our announcement that Disney had announced a series of all-new short cartoons. We said that the titles of the shorts would be Disney feature film titles with one letter changed, and this is not the case. In fact, it’s such a silly idea that we deserve to be slapped silly for not having questioned it in the first place.

Instead, the title of each of these parody shorts will be a "mashup" of a classic Disney film and a famous musical, play, or other stage production. For example, "Tangled" might be combined with Shakespeare’s "All’s Well That Ends Well," giving us "All’s Well that Ends Tangled."

Disney hopes that fans will enjoy trying to puzzle out what the original film and play were and what the parody will be like from the "mashup" title and then tune in to see what it’s like. Our again revised sources deep within Disney report that titles currently in production include:
