Disney has been encouraging tweens to become filmmakers in a project called "Direct Your Disney Side" -- and the results are pretty impressive. Its Yellow Shoes Creative Group, partnered with McGarry Bowen and Adolescent Films, worked with young directors to bring their original concepts to life. They include this cute animation, by 15-year-old director Claire Jantzen, which shows a girl battling with various Disney cartoon villains from over the years to save the day, and kiss the boy.
