What Disney Villains Would Look Like in Real Life

Who knew they could be even scarier in real life?

Around this time last year, we checked out the art of Jirka Vinse Jonatan Väätäinen, who produced some of the most stunning Disney fan art we’ve seen yet — drawings of our favorite Disney ladies and gentlemen in a realistic style. His work’s awesome, and we’ve been appreciative of the hours of entertainment we’ve gotten out of trying to figure out which celebrities his realistic Disney characters look like!

Well, in the past year, he’s been hard at work on a series of Disney villains done in the same style, and they’re here for your viewing pleasure. That’s just fine with us — with Disney opening the tap of live-action remakes of their animated classics, they couldn’t be any more timely!

Captain Hook


No crocodile in the background, but we love this take on the captain of the Jolly Roger. Mostly realistic, although that mustache might be too good to be true.

Cruella de Vil


Well, grey hair was a trend last year, so it’s really only a matter of time before someone splits up black and white like Cruella here.

Evil Queen


No magic mirrors in the real world, so I guess that intense gaze has to be redirected somewhere!

Claude Frollo


The flared nostrils make this one exceptional. I don’t know of any other Disney villain with whom I would more readily associate flared nostrils.
