This Artist Reimagines Disney Characters As Real People

Share on Facebook

Disney does its best to bring stories to life for all of us to enjoy. But this one artist has decided to take things a step further and reimagine all of our favorite Disney characters as real-life people. Finnish artist Jirka Vinse Jonatan Väätäinen is a Finnish graphic designer and uses Disney as the basis for inspiration for his work.

I’ve compiled a list of some of his best work for your scrolling pleasure.

Prepare to be absolutely mind-blown.

First up, we have Disney fathers.

This one’s accurate!

It’s weird but Tarzan doesn’t even resemble his father?

I would have imagined Ariel’s father to look exactly like this!

“Aladdin’s father actually looks really handsome.” We agree.

Now onto the Disney villains! Here we have double the trouble!

It’s the arched eyebrows… They scream evil.

I thought Lady Tremaine looked evil, but I think Cruella wins this one! Yikes!

What soft features for such a bad guy…

I would hate to get on the wrong side of this guy, I really would.

There’s something about this face that I really find unsettling…

I have to say, she looks very good for her age.

I love how her skin is tinged purple. Very accurate indeed!

I always took it personally when Gaston attacked the Beast and I can’t seem to let it go.

She may be evil, but she carries herself with grace and poise. I respect that. However, those eyebrows, I refuse to respect.

This one looks so real!

I mean, Angelina Jolie is the real-life Malificent, right? I think she did it better, sorry!

There was always something about Hades that scared me. And this image, just adds to the fear… Let’s move on.

I mean, I think Ursula should just consider becoming Vanessa permanently…

This is an updated rendition of Jasmine. We love it! I’m glad she ditched the sea-blue attire…

What a timeless look Belle has!

This is one of my personal favorites! How accurately has Jirka portrayed Moana? Wow.

I would kill for cheekbones like those!

Now moving swiftly on to Disney men!

Is this modelled after Tom Holland? The resemblance is uncanny.

Can someone ask him to drop his skincare routine please?

Is he wearing a skin-like vest top? Sounds like something Hercules would do…

I know this is going to sound weird, but Prince Eric is very attractive… even though he’s animated.

He and Princess Aurora actually make for a very good-looking couple.

Wow, those blonde locks are actually gorgeous, if I do say so myself.

What a jawline on this man!

He needs a little haircut, but we can work with it.

He really lives up to his name, doesn’t he?

If you thought Aladdin had a good jawline, check out Tarzan!

The Chinese army captain resembles the animation perfectly.

How does Jirka manage to get the hair so accurate? He’s very talented.

“He looks exactly alike!” We agree!

The eldest Prince of Maldonia prides himself on being handsome and charming and this picture boasts exactly that.

The better Prince option.

This one is literally amazing! If you made it down to the bottom, then I bet you’re feeling pretty inspired, right? Because we are! Jirka really deserved an award for his amazing drawings!
