Every single iconic humanoid Disney animated character we can think of is in this delightful, fun dance video from Idos Media. Disney heroes and heroines shake off their respective villians, and there are clever portrayals of each one. Aladdin and Jasmine ride a magic carpet, hotly pursued by Jafar. Captain Hook plays saxaphone, with Rufio on lead guitar and Tinkerbell on drums. Tarzan and Jane have an on screen moment that closely mirrors a scene from Tarzan, and there are references and easter eggs all over the place.

It would be pretty swell all by itself if that’s all it had in it, but Shake it Off, Disney Style features some really solid choreography and some vocals that make your heart race because they’re so, so beautiful. There were over two dozen people on screen, and more behind the camera making it all happen, but there’s a little something extra that really makes it something you want to see, and that something is joy. Joy is in the heart of every single person who worked on it, and that is a kind of magic you can’t fake, and that no amount of money or extra production value can make up for if it’s missing. These wonderful performers have it, and if you watch this video, you get to share some of it with them.

This was a herculean effort to put together and it all worked, every bit of it.

And yes, Megara and Hercules are in it too.

Enjoy.

Lyrics

I stay out too late (we stay out too late)
Got Prince Charming in my brain (she’s got me in her brain)
That’s what people say mm, mm (That’s what people say mm, mm)
I go on too many dates (lets go out baby) hahaha
Can’t make them stay awake
At least that’s what people say mm, mm (That’s what people say mm, mm)
But I keep cruising
Can’t stop, won’t stop moving
It’s like I got this music
In my mind, saying it’s gonna be alright
Cause the players gonna play, play, play
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, shake it off
I never miss a beat
Even though I don’t have any feet
And that’s what he don’t see mm, mm (That’s what I don’t see mm, mm)
I’m fighting on my own (fighting on her own)
I make the moves up up as I go (moves up as he goes)
And that’s what they don’t know mm, mm (and that’s what we don’t know..down, up!)
But I keep swinging
Can’t stop, won’t stop singing
It’s like I got this music
In my mind, saying aaaaahhhh
Cause the pirates gonna play, play, play
And the mermaids gonna hate, hate, hate
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, shake it off
Shake it off, shake it off..
Hey, hey, hey
Just think while you been digging down and out about the layers
And the dirty dirty cheats of the world
You could have been digging down to this sick beat
My ex-prince brought his new princess
She’s like it’s so cold
But I’m just gonna shake
And to the princess over there with the real long hair
Won’t you come on down baby we could shake, shake, shake
Let it, let it go
Cause the Villains gonna play, play, play
And the Bad Guys gonna hate, hate, hate
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, Shake it off
Heartbreakers gonna break, break, break
And the fakers gonna fake, fake, fake
Baby I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake
Shake it off, shake it off..
Aaah, Aaah
Who is that girl I see
Tale as old as time
I won’t say i’m in love
And at last I see the light
I can show you the world
Shake it off, shake it off
