Since she burst onto the scene at the tender age of 16, Taylor Swift has been a force to be reckoned with. Not just sonically, either. When Swift releases a single, it's usually accompanied by a music video that takes fans further inside her head. Swift offers a complete, 360-degree experience that's equally audio and visual. You never know what she's going to come up with next, just like another creative team we all know and love: those wizards at Disney.
Swift's music videos are timeless fantasies, and if a few creative liberties are taken, they definitely have animated Disney movie analogues. She even has a poison apple in "Blank Space." The comparisons are quite ripe for the making.
Swift will debut "Wildest Dreams
" — which looks very Lion King
-esque — this Sunday at MTV's Video Music Awards
. In honor of the occasion, we took a look back through her oeuvre
and paired some of her most memorable music videos with their animated Disney companions.
Prepare to enter a whole new world of Taylor Swift videos as Disney movies — it's a new fantastic point of view.
