The first quote Ash dropped during a post-match conference was from none other than The Lion King, saying: ‘We kind of came into it thinking like Hakuna Matata’.

She later referenced Toy Story, saying: ‘IΒ chat to my niece and over and over she just tells me, ”you can go to infinity and beyond”.’

Lastly, Ash made a tongue-in-cheek mention of one of our favourite Disney soundtracks, Under the Sea from Little Mermaid.

‘I think for me sometimes I look at a shot, I play a shot, I think the seaweed is always greener in someone else’s lake,’ she said following her win against Harriet Dart.

Watch all of Ash’s messages in the really cute footage cut by ABC’s Offsiders below, who initially picked up on the trend.

We wish Ash all the best in upcoming tournaments and we can’t wait to see what Disney movie she will reference next.
