1. It's been 14 years since Dory told us to "just keep swimming"! The actor who played the voice of Nemo is now a college student.

And fish are still friends, not food.

2. Clueless is 22 years old this year. That's enough time to go through high school five times and then some!

As if?!

3. We first saw the Millennium Falcon escape from Mos Eisley 40 years ago in Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope. That's older than George Lucas was when he made the movie.

But, more importantly, it's when we first witnessed the best bromance in history.

4. It's been 23 years since Simba became king of the Pride Lands, but The Lion King is STILL the highest-grossing hand-drawn animated film of all time.

Even crazier? Jonathan Taylor Thomas is now 35 years old! ♪ The circle of liiiiiife ♪

5. Sixteen years ago, we learned that the greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in Moulin Rouge. Nicole Kidman has been involved in over 35 movies since.

But we still haven't recovered. (Satine and Christian forever.)

6. John Connor would be 36 years old today because the T-800 defeated the T-1000 in Terminator 2. He was only 10 years old in the movie.

10. It's been 33 years since the Ghostbusters came to the rescue with their proton packs. There have been six different US presidents in that time.

12. Sixteen years have passed since Harry Potter received his letter from Hogwarts on the big screen. That's enough time to have attended Hogwarts twice and then some.

We're still waiting for our letter...(sort of).

And you won't believe how old Julius Caesar is...
