Snapchat has rolled out a new filter that turns users into Disney/Pixar characters, and Twitter has diverted resources into exploring its transformative potential. The movie Heat, fictional serial killer Michael Myers, and sad Ben Affleck all demonstrate that in most cases enlarged Disney eyeballs soften the edges.

We made you a storybook to see.
Quick acknowledgment for Justin Pinkney and Doron Adler, independent developers who accomplished a Pixar-ification filter called Toonify last year.
