What Disney Princesses and Princes Would Look Like in Real Life

We’re big fans of Disney fan art around here, of princesses or otherwise. We like to spread the love around, but every once in a while, one artist in particular grabs our attention — today, we’re putting the spotlight on Jirka Vinse Jonatan Väätäinen (whose other works you can and should see here), who has re-imagined Disney royalty by bringing them a little closer to our world.

The princesses (and yes, the one queen, you know who we mean) look no worse for the transformations, though — looking like this, we have no doubt they’d rule over our realm, too. 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.



We’ll start off with Jane, who always seems to get overshadowed by the other women of Disney. Maybe it’s the dress game deficiencies, I don’t know.

She looks better suited for the jungle here than she was in most of the movie, but I’m not thinking anyone’s really coming out of a jungle looking that clean.
