Everybody loves Disney and animated movies. They're the tales of our childhood and when we have children, they're their tales too.
Everyone also has their favorite Disney princess. The girls that we immortalize as they are because they can never change.
Some folks, however, got to thinking about how Disney princesses might have turned out if they'd had the freedom to change rather than being trapped in a timeless film. Then they created these stunning images.
Check out the results, they're really fascinating. We liked the way Rapunzel turned out best, but they're all awesome!
1. Mulan The Brave
Most 16-year-olds don't have to save China from the evil invasion of the Huns. Mulan, however, did. So she can be forgiven for her not-so-teenaged look.
2. Mulan The Disco Goer
This is Mulan reimagined as though she had a social life at 16. Kicking it with white eyeliner and heading to a Chinese discotheque to strut her funky stuff.
3. Jasmine The Teenage Bride
You'd look like this if you father told you that you were going to marry a stranger at the age of 15. That's what happened to Princess Jasmine.
4. Jasmine The Moody Goth
If she hadn't had something to be really upset about, Jasmine might have rebelled anyway. Here's Princess Jasmine doing her best Sisters of Mercy impression.
5. Ariel Was Just A Bit Overboard
Ariel was a drama queen (or drama princess) at the best of times. This is her about to throw a fit because she's fallen in love with a man and her dad doesn't approve.
6. Ariel Goes All Tori Amos
If Ariel hadn't lived "Under the Sea," it's quite possible that she'd have become the equivalent of a 90s emo chick and aped Tori Amos for her Facebook page.
7. Cinderella's Charmed Life
Cinderella met Prince Charming at the more acceptable age of 19. She'd turned out pretty well by that point and they lived happily ever after.
8. Cinderella - Brace Yourself
But just imagine if a teenage Cinderella had needed a little dentistry to turn herself into the woman of his dreams? What if she needed some serious work done?
9. Cinderella Wouldn't Have Slept As Easily
Cinderella does quite a bit of sleeping in the movie and she looks so comfy. We think the brace would have made this much harder work.
10. Elsa Had A Lot To Handle
This sad face is because in Frozen, Elsa had an awful lot of problems to deal with at the age of just 21. You'd be sad too with that much responsibility.
11. Elsa Lets It Go
This is Elsa reimagined as the partying socialite that she would have been if she'd have been a modern princess with no responsibilities of her own.
12. Rapunzel Finds Life Taxing
When you're stuck at the top of a tower with the world's longest hair, there's only so much you can really get up to.
13. Rapunzel Goes Punk Rock!
We like to think that in a different life, Rapunzel would have let down her hair and gone green. Literally, mind you. This is her punk period.
14. Snow White Was Jolly Young
In the old movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Snow White is just 14 years old, so that explains her young and innocent look.
15. Life Is Not Kind To Snow White
If we put Snow White through the aging process to send her into her twenties, things don't turn out so well. It looks like she became a big fan of apple pies...
That was a lot of fun. What other animated characters would benefit from this kind of examination?
