What Disney Princes Would Look Like in Real Life

Because we’re all about equal opportunity here, we couldn’t bring you what Disney princesses would look like in real life without putting the spotlight on the guys, too. Jirka Vinse Jonatan Väätäinen also has a whole collection of Disney Princes made to look just real enough to make you think they’re ready to jump out the screen and rescue you from the modern dating scene. That might also be that they all vaguely look like celebrities that I can’t quite place, but I’ll let you decide on that one.

Prince Eric


If I didn’t already know, I guess I’d come up with Prince Eric for this one just because of the nice brushwork forming waves at the bottom. Also, turns out realistic Prince Eric looks kinda like Full House-era John Stamos.



I am also positive Kristoff looks like someone famous here, and I cannot for the life of me figure it out. I may lose sleep over this.

Flynn Rider


The rogueish Flynn Rider of Tangled looks somewhat apologetic here, which is possibly appropriate. From the movie, at least, and also because he just seems like a guy that has a lot to apologize for.



It looks like the artist has captured Hercules pondering whether or not he really has what it takes to be a hero. That, or he’s thinking about how rad it was that one time he killed the Hydra.

  • Jessica Jewett

    Phoebus looks like Heath Ledger

  • Tia

    Kristoph is a huskier Rob Gronkowski

  • Liz

    Kristoff definitely looks like John Krasinski to me. And Maybe a little bit Charlie Cox.

  • Tim Meyer

    Kristoph looks like the oldest brother from Home Improvement. That’s who.

  • Brian

    Phoebus looks like Kody from Sister Wives.

  • Jan

    Kristoph is clearly Sean Astin

  • Emma

    Weird, in cartoon form I’ve always thought Li Shang and Herc were the hunkiest, but based off of these photos I’d have to give it to Flynn Rider or Tarzan

    Captain Phoebus reminds me of a younger Kody Brown (Sister Wives) and he’s really giving me the creeps.

  • Luzette

    Jogia should play Aladdin if they ever do a live-action

  • Mandi

    Phoebus looks like a Charlie Hunnam/ Liam Neeson love child, Kristoff looks like a plumper Heath Ledger, John Smith is a blonde Tom Cruise, Phillip is a younger, blonde Zachary Quinto, Aladdin reminds me of a younger David Schwimmer. Lol!

    More like Owen Wilson if you ask me.

  • Cheryl J. Brock

    Really wish the person who wrote this would have just shut up and let us see the pics. Sarcasm is cool, But snotty, rude sarcasm is not.

  • Naj Murad

    John Smith was a captain. How come the other captains get “Captain” in their name and he doesn’t? He was a real life captain too!

  • Melissa Boyd

    Captain Phoebus looks more like Charlie Hunnam to me. Prince Eric is Henry Cavill

  • Lincoln Loud

    holy shit Prince Phillip looks like Justin Bieber

  • Rhonda George

    Dang Buzz, what a handsome hambone he is!

  • Harleen Quinzel

  • Gabby

    Kristoff almost exactly looks like Sean Astin. Seriously, look at him even when he was younger

  • http://www.facebook.com/author.serenityvalle Serenity Valle

    Prince Phillip reminds me of Chris Zylka

  • Sherri Filley

    Captain Phoebus from The Hunchback of Notre Dame. does look more like Heath Ledger, AND if you look long enough, also looks a lot like Channing Tatum

  • darby

    Thats what I thought too!!

  • Shannon L. Burns

    Hello, I’d like a Hercules with a side of Flynn Rider. For dessert I’d like a Prince Eric please. Thanks!

  • Mara

    Flynn Rider always reminded me of Robert Pattinson.

  • Lux

    They had to, otherwise all the feminists would FREAK OUT that they weren’t “equal opportunity,” only doing princes. Which is even mentioned in the first line of the post. But I also agree that its always Frozen this and Frozen that. Ugh, so sick of Frozen.

  • Lux

    These art works are fantastic, but this commentary is AWFUL, you should be identifying the characters and celebrating the talented artist’s work. Instead you are just bitching about everything. You should check your facebook feed, besides all the swooning, your audience isn’t liking it.

  • Tasha Marie Traub

    Kristoff looks like T.R. Knight with a blonde wig.

  • Gwen

    Why are they all so EFFEMINATE????!!!

  • Tarah Kolb

    Cinderella kind of looks like a young Renee Zellweger.. :O

  • bluesplot

    OMG he does!!

  • bluesplot

    The commentary was horrible! Just list who the character are for anyone who doesn’t know and leave it at that!

  • Smidge Smidgington

    … it’s 2016 and people still insist that the beast’s human name is Adam. The staff themselves said they forgot to name him. Period. Adam is not his name. It was used as trivia in a third-party name Disney slapped their name on but didn’t proofread or write. If they call him Adam in the live-action remake I’m cracking skulls.

  • Rachel

    Thank you!!

  • Rachel

    I really liked the art. The commentary, however, was horrible! I mean, did you have to say something ridiculously negative for EVERY single picture- excuse me, every single picture of a PRINCE?? Didn’t really have to much crap to talk about the Frozen girls. Yeah, it was a great movie, but enough already… And how old are you that you had to google Prince Phillip? You’ve never seen Sleeping Beauty? If you haven’t seen all these movies, you shouldn’t be doing pieces on them, ESPECIALLY if you’re going to trash talk the hell out of them…
    Anyyywho- My favorite was Prince Eric. He is from the best Disney movie of all time and I love him and want him for myself!! They were all amazing works, but Prince Charming? Wow- spot on, right?

  • shydreamguy wantsaboyfriend

    Tarzan has my hairstyle

  • Carp88

    When did Tarzan or Buzz and a few others become ” Royalty”

  • Sherry

    I’ll take a John Smith or Kristoff please 🙂

  • Robert Orwell

    Eric is GORGEOUS! If the real-life Eric really existed, I would become a woman just to marry him, once he is straight. Also, real-life Flynn Ryder, Aladdin, Prince Charming (uh là là), Prince Philip, Prince Naveen and John Smith, what a real knockout each of them is. Gorgeous guys! Also, in spite of being gay, I would be straight for one day for Elza, she’s a hottie in here and so classy!

  • Sarah Hamilton

    I think Kristoff looks like Joey from full house, forgot his real name.

  • Parker Taylor

    Prince Eric looks more like a young Jake Gyllenhaal than younger John Stamos. Prince Phillip looks like Ryan Phillippe. Captain Phoebus looks like Chris Pratt and Owen Wilson had a baby. Oh, and that Elsa looks exactly like a young Kisten Dunst.

  • Lilly

    He looks like that guy from that british movie a royal night out…but with more hair.

  • Haleigh

    Adam is actually just the assumed name of the Beast. His actual name is never given.

  • Leah Belikoff

    It’s Eugene Fitzerbert, not Flynn Rider
