What Would Disney Princes and Princesses Be Like In Real Life?

The stars of Disney animations have wooed us all for years with their elegance and charm, but it has always been left to the imagination when thinking about what they really look like.

But artist Jirka Väätäinen has transformed Disney’s princes and princesses, bringing them all to life with some truly stunning illustrations.

The characters appear in human form, a far cry from the dreamy stars that have lit up our screens in all of the hit movies.

So venture back in to your childhood and see Disney’s finest princes and princesses, in a way never seen before…
