    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.

    "Blank Space" (2014)
    Things start out great: They're running around a beautiful mansion in couture. She's painting his portrait. He's walking the hounds. Then, he starts ignoring her. Is he texting another woman? She's not waiting to find out. Bring on the poison apples — it's about to go down in flames.
