The eyes are organs which belong to the nervous system, and they provide organisms with vision by receiving and processing visual input in the form of light.
These same organs have been said to be the windows to the soul, as you can tell a lot about a person's personality, emotional state and health just by gazing into their eyes.
After almost a century of watching Disney films, their characters can easily be distinguished from characters created by other companies as they are known for having very large and expressive eyes. Because of the complexity of these organs, it can be very difficult to not only draw them, but to have them convey specific emotions. Luckily, Disney has never seemed to struggle in that department.
Like the eyes we see every day, the Disney characters' eyes come in all shapes, sizes and colors, including rare colors like green, hazel and purple. They have also been adapted to suit the races and ethnicities of the characters.
How well do you know your Disney characters? If you were given images of just their eyes, would you be able to tell which character it belonged to? Well, 95% of the population can't. Take this quiz to find out if you can defy the odds.
