Can You Guess The Disney Movie By Looking At Every Frame At Once?

A "movie barcode" is every frame of a movie smooshed together. We didn't say this quiz would be easy.

A "movie barcode" is all the frames of a movie smashed together into one image, as seen on this incredible Tumblr.

It's a great way to get a quick glance at the color scheme of a movie. For example, this is every frame of The Empire Strikes Back in one image. Notice all the blues and whites toward the beginning on Hoth, leading to dark greens, browns, and blacks on Dagobah and in space, followed by the lighter colors of Cloud City.

So, can you guess the Disney movie just by looking at its barcode?

    It's Aladdin!

    The color palette for this movie included a lot of very saturated blues and reds, and you can very clearly see where Jafar takes over toward the end.

    Wrong! 

    It's The Lion King!

    You can see the bright blue skies from the early minutes of the movie, and the fiery reds during Simba's final battle with Scar. Oh, and that green sliver is "Be Prepared."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Pocahontas!

    This movie had a surprisingly dark palette with a lot of deep blues. If you look closely, though, you can see where the brighter pinks of "Colors of the Wind" peek through.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Dumbo!

    The colors are less saturated in this one (and they're kind of all over the place), but you can definitely see where the "Elephants On Parade" come in!

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Brave!

    Who knew "Brave" was such a dark movie? Most of the film takes place outdoors at night as Merida tries to reverse the curse, so the palette for the movie is very earthy and dark.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's The Little Mermaid!

    "The Little Mermaid" is a little more green than blue, but even more surprising is the fact that there are so many earthy tones for a largely aquatic movie. Remember that Ariel does spend a lot of time on land!

    Pastels. Pastels everywhere.

    It's Tarzan!

    Green is usually the first color you think of with this movie, but it had a surprising about of brown and tan colors as well because of the jungle setting.

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Tangled!

    You can see the explosion of green as Rapunzel first sets foot outside of her tower and marvels at the grass and trees, and the sliver of orange when she sees the lanterns!
