Yesterday, we spoke to three animators who are making names for themselves on Tiktok. Needless to say, art on the video-sharing platform doesn’t stop at animation.
The proof: creative Tiktok users, professionals and amateurs alike, are pooling their talents to invent a stage musical inspired by the 2007 Disney-Pixar feature Ratatouille. The virtual show — which pays homage to the film’s protagonist Remy, a rat with a knack for haute cuisine — has been gathering steam for months. Here’s a quick timeline of how Ratatouille the Musical took shape:
In August, Emily Jacobsen, whose Tiktok channel is full of playful sung tributes to cartoon characters, read about a new Ratatouille-themed ride due to open at Walt Disney World in Florida. She then posted an ode to Remy on the app, singing: “Remy, the Ratatouille, the rat of all my dreams / I praise you, oh Ratatouille, may the world remember your name.”
