What 15 Disney Princes And Princesses Would Look Like In Real Life!
Most of us grew up watching and loving Disney movies. Alright, mostly you girls. But, plenty of boys watched them too. Maybe more for the jokes or swashbuckling, but still. What’s one of the main things all Disney flicks have in common? The princes and princesses. Almost all the big Disney movies have them, don’t them? But what would they look like in real life? You know, if they weren’t imaginary animated characters? Well, Finnish artist Jirka Väätäinen has come up with some awesome work which means we no longer have to wonder! Her uber-realistic interpretations of classic Disney characters show us just what they’d all look like if they came to life. Here are our favourite 15
First up we have one of the most famous Disney princesses of the moment; Elsa from Frozen. You know, the one with the song that you just can’t get out of your head? We think that Elsa looks pretty sassy in real life. And perhaps a bit older and more worldly wise than we’d have imagined. Certainly not a woman to be messing with. Now, once again…’let it go, let it gooo..!’
And so we go from Elsa to her sister and fellow princess, Anna. Although Anna may not be as glamorous as her sister, the artist has portrayed Anna as beautiful in her own way. She really shows her as being the brave, determined and kind hearted character she is. She definitely looks like the sort of girl we’d want to best friends with. If only it wasn’t quite so cold where she lives.
Snow White, here. We love that the artist has chosen to portray Snow in her woodland outfit, rather than the traditional blue and yellow outfit most are used to seeing her in. We think this makes her look even more realistic. Her blood red lips and rosy cheeks make her look so sweet and innocent. You can see why none of the woodland creatures were frightened of her.
Alice really does look like the wide eyed little girl who gets lost down the rabbit hole. If she was our daughter, we’d be very concerned about her hanging out with the likes of the Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat. She doesn’t really look like she could hold her own with that lot, particularly as they look like they have been taking a LOT of drugs. Thank goodness it was all a dream. Oh. SPOILER ALERT.
Here’s Cinderella in her cleaning gear. She already looks beautiful, but we can see how she’d scrub up even nicer in her big blue ball gown and glass slippers. We can see how her ‘ugly’ sisters would have been quite jealous. We’d have liked to have seen realistic pictures of the ugly sisters, too. We could have something to aspire to then… It’s OK, we know they’re just supposed to be ugly on the inside.
Doesn’t Rapunzel from Tangled remind anyone of a particular famous actress? That’s right, she does look oddly like Amanda Seyfried of Mama Mia and Les Miserables fame. Well at least we know who will be cast should they ever make a live action film version. We don’t think that her hair would be looking as healthy as that in real life though. Think of the knots!
How cute does Tinkerbell look? We’re loving the pixie (or should that be fairy?) style hair do. We’ve seen the real life version of Wendy, too, but we think that Tinkerbell is definitely the cutest of the two. She looks like she could be very mischievous. Probably getting it from all of those Lost Boys. Or maybe it is the other way around? Everyone clap your hands: ‘I believe in fairies!’
Wow, check out how hot Aladdin is. And we thought he was just some little cheeky street thief. He seems to have cleaned up pretty well in real life. Mind you, he must have been pretty hot to win the heart of princess Jasmine. We think that one of our three wishes would be for him to magically appear out of one of our lamps. But where’s Abu?
This is probably one of the less known Disney princes. And this is largely because he is a big ol’ beast for 90 percent of the film. Why has the artist not chosen to show him as the Beast? We’re supposed to love him no matter what he looks like. Although, we have to admit, he does look a hell of a lot better as a man. Something of the Pre-Raphaelite about him, we think. Posh, eh?
We don’t think Ariel needed much temptation, living in the deep dark Ocean where it smells of fish, but we can see why she wanted to get her land legs after meeting this hunk. And he likes dogs. Remember when he rescued his sheep dog Max from the storm? He may well be the perfect guy. He even manages to beat Ursula. And we’ve seen the realistic drawing of her, too. She’s one scary woman.
We like that Hercules has come across as slightly more vulnerable than you’d originally think he’d be in this interpretation. He’s not just all muscles and chest plates, y’know. The Disney Hercules can come across as a bit of a goof, but he certainly doesn’t look that way in this picture. He looks like he’d whisk you away to a Greek island and read you epic poems [swoons].
Pocahontas’ romantic interest Captain John Smith looks like the ultimate macho hero, here. We particularly enjoy the addition of 5 o’clock shadow. Well, you wouldn’t be prioritising shaving when exploring the New World would you? And he’s English, too. Think of the accent… Whatever that would have been in the sixteen hundreds. He could take us back to England any time.
Prince Philip looks way more brooding and mysterious in real life than we’d imagined. He is pretty hard though, particularly when beating Maleficent when she was in dragon form. Well, he is a Prince after all. It may be considered a bit weird however, creeping up on young girls when they’re sleeping and making out with them. But then, looking at him, we’d let him kiss us any time.
This is the smartest prince we’ve seen. And no wonder. He is the one and only Prince Charming. He also demonstrates perserverance by going round all of the ladies of his land to see who’s foot the glass slipper fit. What a boring task. Or the task of someone with a foot fetish. Either way, we don’t care. He’s Prince Charming!
This rendition of Tarzan is pretty impressive. And it certainly helps that he has his top off. If only we can see the whole thing, loin cloth and all. Beats Brendan Frasier’s version, doesn’t it (sorry Brendan). Although we’ve not managed to include her on this list, Jane’s also been replicated. And she looks pretty similar to Maggie Gyllenhall. We can totally see these two together…
