Chances are that you’ve seen at least one Disney movie throughout your life (and we bet you’ve seen more!), probably as a child, when all you wanted was to be a dashing hero or a graceful princess. Well, get ready to relive those dreams thanks to these amazing works by artist Helen Morgun. From the oldest classics like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to some of Disney’s most popular hits of today like Frozen, the amount of untapped potential is easy to see. Her choice of celebrities acts as the uncanny base for these art pieces, and we are simply gobsmacked at how great they turn out every time. And while Disney has been steadily remaking several of its hit films in a live-action format, these images only leave us wanting more. If you disagree, we don’t know what will convince you otherwise. Either way, let’s get started on the list already!
#1: Rihanna as Tiana from The Princess and the Frog
We love The Princess and the Frog – it almost takes the damsel in distress formula and flips it on its head! Tiana has dreamed of opening a restaurant with her family’s recipes since she was a young girl and is fiercely determined to make it a reality as an adult. Even though her life gets derailed by a frog prince, she learns that it’s okay to relax a bit and still achieves her dream!
Casting for characters has to be one of the hardest things to do, but we think Morgun nailed it on the head with Rihanna. Something about her screams of the tenacity she shares with Tiana’s character and her singing career would certainly be useful for the musical numbers!
