Deadpool does Disney in this morbidly magical, totally NSFW musical spoof

Presented by: Elizabeth Rayne


Disney’s potential acquisition of Fox might have some Marvel superheroes wondering if they’ll have to retract their claws or quit smashing random things and submit to getting G-rated—except one.

Transplant Deadpool into the happiest franchise on Earth, and you’re going to find it littered with thingamabombs and decapitated heads. That was exactly the kind of blasphemy that happened when director Julian Higgins went there with his 2017 musical parody in which the chimichanga-loving mutant terrorizes a bar to the tune of Gaston from Beauty and the Beast. Just in case that didn’t ruin your childhood, Higgins has now masterminded an entire Disney meets Deadpool musical revue.

Warning: you will never see anything from the Magic Kingdom the same way again.

In this extravaganza of singing, dancing, spandex and (of course) a body count, Deadpool wants to be where the heroes are. He needs a team. The thing is that no one really wants to join forces with a Merc who balances his homicidal tendencies with unicorn erotica. X-Men? Beast can’t see him as a beauty. Avengers? They don’t want to deal with the R rating, and the last thing Tony Stark wants to be is an impromptu stand-in for Aladdin’s magic carpet.

After he almost pours maple syrup on his Tide pods, Deadpool gets inpsired and hikes to Canada, where Alpha Flight embraces him even after he makes the almost fatal mistake of calling Sasquatch a Wookiee poseur. Cue the most kickass musical number of all when the ninjas swarm in.

Higgins has warped and mutated Disney songs from Moana, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and Mulan for your viewing and listening pleasure. You may also catch the first few words of Let it Go before the unfortunate extra singing it gets punched in the mouth, because it’s Deadpool’s musical and he isn’t about to let anyone upstage him.

If this really was a forbidden edit of a Disney movie, he could almost fit in with the Lost Boys. Almost.

Deadpool 2 will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray on August 21 if you want to subject yourself to more of this madness. He’s already photobombed a few other DVD covers, because you know, he can’t not get attention for less than 30 seconds.
