Yes, if you tried that Disney Instagram filter, there is a reason you got that character. The creator confirmed it’s completely random.
A few weeks ago, a filter emerged on Instagram Story that answered the all-important question: Which Disney character are you? Videos across Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok shared people’s hilarious mismatches. And while your friends may jokingly list all the reasons explaining how you’re totally Ursula, the program didn’t read too much into it.
Filter creator, Arno Partissimo, was quoted saying, “There is no artificial intelligence, it’s totally random. People who are really angry have to just try it again and it could be different.” Many of the users have already caught on, their Instagram stories showing continuous re-dos until they were matched with suitable characters.
Celebrities Using the Disney Filter
Several celebrities had a laugh sharing their Disney results on social media. This included some Disney celebrities as well. Josh Gad was one of the first celebrities to try out the filter. Apparently, he’s not Olaf — he’s actually Dory from Finding Nemo. Meanwhile, Broadway Disney’s Aladdin, Adam Jacobs, discovered he was the lovable snowman instead of Agrabah’s famous street rat. Even Idina Menzel gave it a try, and apparently, she’s Flounder from The Little Mermaid
Oh, and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waitiki gave it a try. You can watch that here:

How to use the Disney Filter?
In case you are still trying to figure out how to use this filter, there are two ways to do it:
- Find a friend’s story that uses the filter. The filter’s name will appear under your friend’s handle in the top left corner. When you click on it, a gray bar will appear that says “try it.” Click on it, and start your selfie video and show the world which character you are.
- Go straight to the source. The filter was created by @arnopartissimo. Under his “saved stories” click on the Disney icon on the far left. It will begin his own story and from there, click on the filter’s name in the top left corner and then click the “try it” button on the pop-up bar.
