Disney has some of the most recognizable characters in the world, and it’s regularly putting out new movies and TV series that immediately create pop culture icons. The likes of Mickey Mouse, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy have been progressively joined by a wide variety of other great and memorable characters, whether it’s from TV shows like Darkwing Duck and Gargoyles or its prestige array of big-screen fairy tale adaptations like The Little Mermaid and Cinderella. And where there’s valuable, beloved characters, there will be adaptations into other mediums like books, toys, and of course, video games.
