The One Man Disney Movie

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

If you haven't seen Nick Pitera's new Disney medley yet, then get ready to have a big ol' pixie-dust sprinkled grin on your face for the next eight and a half minutes:



I laughed, I sighed, and I boogied around the office. Not sure you can ask more of a video than that.

You may have seen Nick sing before; the viral video of him singing Aladdin's "Whole New World" was everywhere at one time. If you *haven't* heard him before, though, then "be prepared" [heh] for a bit of a shock. And let me assure you: yes, that's really him singing. All of it. Honest.

For more, be sure to check out Nick's Youtube channel. Oh, and if you love Wicked as much as I do, don't miss Nick's version of "For Good" with Sam Tsui!

  7. I don't even know where to start! 1. Amazing, let's just get that out there. 2. Uhm.. he has a Flounder, Lumiere, and Cogsworth. 3. I love the epic waves in the Little Mermaid scene! And the mash-up of Go the Distance and Reflection was perfect! Thanks so much for sharing:D:D:D

  10. *SIGH* I had the same dream he had, to be the voice of a Disney character. And I would do both the speaking AND singing parts! Alas...but it's fun to pretend and sing along! The wave was the best part! He's a spot on double for Aladdin's singing voice. Thanks for posting that--it really made my day!

    Such a talented man!

    Bu such a freak!

  17. *jaw drop* That was amazing!!! I had never seen him before. He's got major skills... Love it!

  18. aaaand I have a new subscription on YouTube. But I wish I could remember where "Go the Distance" is from... I KNOW I've seen that movie... just can't place it.

  19. WOW! I loved it, what an amazing talent. He's adorable too. Now I've got to watch the rest of his videos.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Dang. Just, dang.
    And he's kinda cute, too. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  21. YEAH! Made me smile for sure!! I love how accurate he is with the male voices from the Disney movies. VERY close to many of them. The fact that he has so much control over his voice, to instantly go into a falsetto/'female' voice, is astounding. He truly has a gift!

    I went to his youtube channel and watched his senior project that he animated AND did the voice over for. So awesome. Can't wait to see more from him through Pixar and his channel. :)

  30. Samantha,

    It's from Hercules and it's my favorite Disney song of all time.

    I get all weepy.

  31. Nick also works at Pixar, according to his account page. How has he not spontaneously combusted of his own awesomeness?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thank you!!!!!! He is awesome. I am a HUGE Disney fan and will be up all night watching him.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I had one of the worst days at work and I ended my day with a big grin. Thanks for sharing that. Except I did cry during Go the Distance. That song always gets to me!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I absolutely LOVED it and, thank you muchly for the post inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ohhhhh my gosh! I was smiling like an idiot the entire time. hahaha
    I need this on my iPod.

    I love all of the characters. The timing must have taken forever. (Notice the chorus handing the people above, the menus)

    You think if I wish REALLY hard I'll get a singing voice like that? (And loose weight so I don't have to diet?)

    ReplyDelete
  36. only problem with it that I had was the fact that I checked it out while at work... so was constantly checking over my shoulder to make sure I wasn't getting caught.

    Not going to stop me checking out the rest of them tho, that was brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  37. My fiance showed this to me last night. I was extremely impressed with this gentleman's vocal range! It takes a lot of practice to be able to sing that well over that wide a range of notes.

    So, how many geek points do I get for being able to identify all of the movies the songs came from, except one? And I pretty sure that the song I don't know is from Tangled....

    ReplyDelete
  38. Holy crap...haven't seen him before and he is just something else (in the amazing way). :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Jen, I watched this video with my 8 day old daughter in my arms and it made me cry* and want to take her to Disney world. Thank you for sweetening our morning!

    *I'm still full of crazy hormones.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I had never heard of this guy before now, and OMG I am in love. Well, not really, but you know...

    Thanks for sharing the awesomeness!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  41. Jen and John: I love you. Thank you so much for being sooo awesome. I was having a serious bad morning and this was exactly what I needed. I absolutely LOVE both Epbot and CakeWrecks. This is where any geeky, steampunky, creative, Disney-lovin' gal can go and find her fix. :D

  42. OMG!! That is the most amazing thing I've ever seen! And that's why I check out this page every day, you have the neatest stuff on here that is sometimes amazing, often hilarious and always makes my day better :)Thank you so much for what you do!

    ReplyDelete
  43. WOW. I thought it was amazing with just the singing, and then the funny faces and props too? Pure awesomeness. Even my husband who doesn't like Disney stuff (I know, boo-hiss) saw what I was watching and asked me to e-mail him the link so he could see it too. Thank goodness I am going to Disney this year, because I am definitely ready!

    ReplyDelete
  44. OH.

    Em.

    Gee.

    I don't know whether to laugh, get the goosebumps, or bug-eyedly stare open-mouthed at the computer screen while my Huz asks "Are you okay, babe?" 100 times during Nick's performance.

    Yeah, I went for Option #3.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Wow. He really could just take over vo duties for everyone. It's so great to know that there are still young(ish, I have no idea how old he is) developing actual talent and having such fun with it!

    ReplyDelete
  46. My girls and I were just watching this yesterday. We love Nick's songs. He really has an amazing voice. The girls were wondering why Disney would need any other voice actors when they could just hire Nick for all of them. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I hadn't seen this one yet - I knew he could scare the bejeepers out of you with his falsetto, but I'd never heard his low range. This was fun. And I don't even -like- Disney.




    ... Oh yes, I said it! So there! :P

    ReplyDelete
  48. Thank you so much for this link. My daughter and I LOVE Nick. We had not seen "For Good" with Sam, but now we are huge Sam fans too!

    Thank you for sharing all of these wonderful links.

    ReplyDelete
  49. That was amazing. Also incredibly strange but definitely more awesome. =)

    ReplyDelete
  50. That's amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hehe, it's so fun to see people you know! I went to the same art school as him ( he was in computer animation and a year ahead). He works at Pixar (last i heard) and he even sang during his interview for them! That cracks me up every time! I wish him the best and love seeing fellow alumni succeed!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Wow, yet another amazing thing I wouldn't have known about if it weren't for you. Thanks Jen!

    No, really. :D

    ReplyDelete
  53. I can't stop laughing at all of the different faces he makes XD

    ReplyDelete
  54. I watched this just a couple of days before you posted it, and had never heard of the guy before. It seriously took until the bad French accent that I realized he was actually singing all of that and not lip-synching! Ridiculously talented!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Jen, forget the cake wreck cranky peeps, you are amazing. Well, John too since I met you both at a book signing and you are all kinds of awesome.

    I usually skip embedded videos but this one I watched. Hilarious. Adorable.

    Then I read your note that it was him singing each part and WOAH. I do believe the Wicked duet you linked to is my new favorite video - Sam Tsui is also so so talented.

    Loving your awesomeness!
