2021 is the Year of the Ox and we have already started to see Disney celebrate this event. With celebrations taking place at Shanghai Disneyland and exclusive products being released online at ShopDisney.
Year of the Ox: Babe the Blue Ox
Looking at the Garden of the Twelve Friends at Shanghai Disneyland, you can find a whimsical walkway containing a Disney twist on Chinese astrology! Babe the Blue Ox, from the animated musical short film “Paul Bunyan”, represents the year of the Ox on this memorable walkway.
Wishing Garden Reliable, kind and strong, Paul Bunyan’s best buddy is an ox with a colossal heart that’s far from icy! Born in the Year of the Ox? You share Babe’s steady patience and reasonable demeanor—with hints of a stubborn streak that shows you care. When Herculean lumberjack Paul rescues a frostbitten-blue Babe in Disney’s 1958 animated short Paul Bunyan, the two become lifelong pals and clear their path across the country. No wonder his Year of the Ox plaque shows him surrounded by the wilderness he helped tame—it’s a giant-sized job that suits him well
