Abstract: This paper presents the existing correlations between the concept of platonic love and the love displayed in Walt Disney's animated movies. Disney being one of the biggest media in Occident, if not in the world, finding Plato's theory in Disney movies means seeing the traces of Greek philosophy in today’s occidental world, and its heritage. We will ask ourselves why there is an existing relationship between Plato’s theory and Disney. The comparison will be made around four themes: the role of beauty in love, ἔρως as intermediary, love as divine foolishness, love as educational method. We will first expose the customs of ancient Greece in order to present adequately Plato’s position. We will present the fairy tales that inspired Disney, which sometimes find their origin in Platonism. Finally, we will compare Disney movies with Plato’s reflections about love.
