Strictly's Janette Manrara on Celebrity Mastermind – can you answer the four Disney questions she got wrong?

Strictly Come Dancing professional Janette Manrara found herself under a different type of spotlight when she appeared on Celebrity Mastermind on BBC One on Saturday night.

The dancer and It Takes Two presenter was being quizzed on her specialist subject, the Disney renaissance period – which is seen as running from 1989 to 1999 and includes films such as Mulan, Little Mermaid, The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast.

Host Clive Myrie asked a series of questions about the characters, actors, music and settings as Janette competed with comedian Nish Kumar, wine expert Olly Smith and EastEnders’ Nick Cotton actor John Altman.

No immediate spoilers as the program is available on BBC iPlayerbut if you want to test your Disney knowledge and see if you know the answers Janette got wrong, there are four below.

The four questions Janette got wrong

1. “The 1997 film Hercules opens with a narration that begins ‘long ago in the far away land of Ancient Greece”, spoken by which actor?’

2. “In Aladdin, when the Genie greets the magic carpet, he says: ‘Yo, Rugman! Haven’t seen you in a few millennia. Give me some….’ what?

3. “In Mulan, although the character’s spoken lines are voiced by BD Wong, who sings the part of Shang, the heroic Chinese army captain, who is the title character’s eventual love interest?”

4. “At the start of Pocahontas, both the picture onscreen and the first words sung pinpoint the action of the film as beginning in which year?”
