One now deleted user on Reddit posted images of Gramma Tala from “Moana”, Grandma Willow from “Pocahontas” and Grandma Fa from “Mulan”, suggesting the three should get their own movie. Fans immediately responded enthusiastically.
The highest rated comment by u/KesInTheCity expressed great interest, who said it would be “like Disney’s version of Golden Girls”. U/sparks0589 couldn’t contain their excitement, saying, “Ouissss sassy grannies for the win!” another deleted user also weighed in, imagining how awesome the soundtrack would be, considering all three characters are featured in some of the studio’s best-known musical productions.

The adventures they would go on would be anything but sedentary, and we’re more than here for that.
