EVIL: This is How Disney’s Most Famous Villains Would Look If They Were Real People


You may have noticed that we are pretty big Disney fans (who isn’t??), and if there is anything we love more than classic Disney, it’s a little Disney reinterpretation. We’ve seen Disney animals as humans, Disney princesses living “happily ever after” and many many more. But one of our faves so far has got to be this next series of illustrations by Finnish illustrator and designer, Jirka Väätäinen. After two wildly successful sets of illustrations depicting the princesses and princes as real people, Väätäinen took on the villains. And the results? Better than you could imagine.

Among the less favorable Disney characters in his portfolio you will find Ursula from The Little Mermaid, the evil queen from Snow White and Gaston from Beauty and the Beast. If you like what you see, we highly recommend that you check out the artist’s website too (link at the end of the post). Enjoy!
