    Um, there was a lot more in common than that – every gesture, every camera movement, every angle, was identical. Except for the beatyandthebeast/cinderella dance comparison near the end, which, I agree just had similar choreographies. But you'd have to be blind not to see the exact replication in the other comparisons.

    This has been pretty well known for a while. Even I noticed some of these when I was 5. But it really isn't that frequent. Especially with the newer Disney stuff.

    A very nicely put-together demo. I remember many years back when some noticed that group kitten actions in Aristocats were recycled from group puppy actions in 101 Dalmatians, but I never realized it happened frequently enough to assemble a clip of examples like this one.

    I think what's happening here more likely is a common live action reference, rather than pure re-use. More egregious to me is how obviously rotoscoped it all is.
