Quiz: Three Disney Movie Truths and a Lie

From the Oh My Disney blog

Are you a good liar? We think we’re kind of great at it–not that we’ve had that much experience or anything–we look at it as a kind of fine art. Things we’re not so good at: guessing when other people are lying. We’re kind of gullible; we think it’s charming. Anyways, today we’re putting your skills to the test. Below will be four facts about some of your favorite Disney movies. Three will be true, one will be a lie. See if you can identify the lie and claim Disney movie knowledge world domination (it’s a real thing, look it up… okay, don’t look it up, but you can trust us… or can you?).
