Many of us have dreamt about being a Disney prince or princess while growing up. After all, who does not want to live in a fantasy world with happy endings? Some characters also inspire us with their courage, grace, and beauty. There is no denying that Disney has been a significant part of our childhoods. You may also imagine your favorite celebrities as Disney characters because of their similar appearances. The best thing is that now you can visualize them better through these pictures. Here are top illustrations of celebrities as Disney characters to take you into a magical realm.
Mila Kunis As Esmeralda
Disney may not consider Esmeralda as a princess anymore because of the low sales of this character, but many of us still love the character. Mila Kunis is the best actress for Esmeralda because she can exude the same personality and vibes, especially with the scarf on her head.
She can also match Esmeralda’s mature vibes easily. Off-shoulder tops that the character wear will also suit Kunis. After all, her fit physique and graceful beauty are the perfect match for this role. It will also be a great decision if Disney decides to revive The Hunchback of Notre Dame’s Esmeralda.
Margot Robbie As Elsa
Queen Elsa is one of the admirable characters of Disney because of her remarkable powers. She does not need any man to save her, making her different than other Disney princesses. Margot Robbie can easily play the leading lady of Frozen due to her strong presence on the big screen.
Robbie’s icy blue eyes match the appearance of Elsa’s eyes in the Frozen film franchise. She can also nail the blonde hair color quickly and execute the role perfectly due to her natural hair. After all, Margot Robbie is famous for playing badass characters in Hollywood films like Suicide Squad.
Amanda Seyfried As Rapunzel
Amanda Seyfried won the hearts of the audience when she played Karen in Mean Girls. The best thing about the actress is that she can play many Disney characters perfectly. However, height and appearance make Rapunzel the best choice for her. They look similar, so the transformation would be easier.
It is also no secret that blonde hair suits Seyfried more than other hair colors. Of course, you may not be able to see her playing a good girl after Karen. However, Seyfried has proven her skills many times on the screen. This is why she can execute the role flawlessly.
Emma Stone As Merida
Everyone has seen Brave at least once and loved Merida’s character for many reasons. She has exceptional skills in splitting an arrow into two pieces due to her accurate shooting skills. Merida also managed fairly well in disastrous situations without much help from others, especially the usual charming Disney princes.
Emma Stone is the perfect match for this character because both of them have red hair and green eyes. Of course, the actress would be required to curl her hair for Merida’s character. Interestingly, the new hair will suit her and help her create a magical presence on the screen.
Billie Eilish As Kida Nedakh
Many people do not know about Atlantis: The Lost Empire because the film is underrated. You may also be surprised to know that this movie also comes under the Disney banner. One of the famous characters from the Kida Nedakh. She was the love interest of the titular character, Atlantis.
The famous singer Billie Eilish is an excellent match for this character. This is because of the similar hair colors and the unique style of Eilish. Of course, you may consider other actresses, such as Zoe Saldana, for Nedakh’s role. This illustration may change your mind by helping you visualize.
Blake Lively As Aurora
Blake Lively is known for pouring her soul into the characters she plays. She executed the role of a woman who does age in The Age of Adaline flawlessly. This is why Aurora is the perfect Disney character for her. I can even imagine the actress touching the forbidden spindle.
Her blonde hair and angelic look also make it easy for the audience to imagine Lively as a Disney Princess. It would be a great decision because Blake can manage the expressions easily. Of course, it is a shame that Disney has already cast someone else in the Maleficent films.
Lady Gaga As Ursula
Lady Gaga has an amazing voice, making her suitable for singing Poor Unfortunate Souls in The Little Mermaid. Another thing that makes her suitable for playing Ursula is that she knows the art of drag. This is an essential quality in anyone who must play this famous Disney antagonist.
However, Disney decided to cast Melissa McCarthy in the live-action of The Little Mermaid. You may watch the film to see how McCarthy pulls off the role. After all, the plot of the movie remains the same. You can save this picture if you also want to see Gaga as Ursula.
Lilly Collins As Snow White
If you have watched the movie Mirror Mirror, you must know that Lilly Collins has already played Snow White. The unique thing about this illustration is that it captures the vibes of Colins as the famous princess. The casting choice was great because no one plays Snow White better than her.
Of course, a classic version of Snow White with Collins as the leading lady would also be appreciated. Her short hair and brown eyes also match the character’s original appearance. You may also watch Mirror Mirror to see Lily playing a modern Snow White to visualize her better.
Emilia Clarke As Belle
Emilia Clarke has already gained many fans through her excellent performance in Game of Thrones. She played the Mother of the Dragons flawlessly till the end. This is why she can play Belle easily in a Disney film. Some things that Clarke said in the series also match Belle’s thoughts.
For instance, Daenerys said that freedom involves making your own choices. This is something that matches Belle’s philosophy. Emilia Clarke’s soft appearance would also make her an excellent casting choice. Of course, this would remain a dream only because the live-action of Beauty and the Beast has already been made.
Elizabeth Olsen As Jane
Jane from Tarzan is another important Disney character that many people love. Margot Robbi played this role in the 2016 film about Tarzan’s legend. Of course, I think Elizabeth Olsen is a better fit for this character. The following illustration also shows how the actress would look like Jane in Tarzan.
Interestingly, Elizabeth is the sister of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. She also played Scarlet Witch in Avengers, proving her skills as an actress. Her charming presence in Tarzan would definitely make the movie much better. If only someone would send this idea to Disney to make the cast her.
Lucy Liu As Mulan
Lucy Liu is a famous Chinese-American actress because of her strong role. She is renowned for her crime-fighting characters, making her the best option for playing Mulan. The Disney Princess is one of the badass characters you will find in animated movies. The striking appearance also makes this thought better.
The actress would look stunning in the costumes of Mulan. She would also make the character more famous because her acting skills are on another level. It would be a sight to see Lucy performing Mulan’s action scenes. I wonder if Disney executives have ever had such an amazing idea.
Rihanna As Princess Tiana
It is no secret that Disney does not have many African-American characters. That is why Princess Tiana is more appreciated by the audience than many other Disney princesses. The best thing is that Rihanna is the perfect celebrity to play her. After all, the musician already has a royal appearance.
This illustration shows how Rihanna would like Tiana, and I can’t deny that the part is made for her. Of course, this would only happen if Disney decided to make a live-action of The Princess and the Frog. Until then, this amazing picture will remain in our memories for years.
Camila Cabello As Jasmine
Camila Cabello has the best expressions and voice to play various Disney Princesses. I believe her best fit would be Jasmine from Aladdin. This is because of the tan skin and striking resemblance between the two women. It is a shame that Camila was not cast in the musical Aladdin.
She could have easily sung many songs in the film and played the character naturally. Of course, that does not mean that the singer does not have chances as potential Jasmine. Many filmmakers revive Disney movies, so there may be a chance of Aladdin getting another exciting live-action.
Leigh-Anne Pinnock As Pocahontas
Leigh-Anne Pinnock may not be as famous as other actresses, but her vibes as Pocahontas would be unmatchable. The famous personality is a member of Little Mix, a girl group. Pinnock used to work at Pizza Hut, which is why her humble personality makes her a good fit for Disney.
This illustration will mesmerize you because the art is relatively accurate and exude aesthetic vibes. Her presence on the screen would definitely make the audience crazy. It would also allow more people to see the film because the original film franchise was a bit underrated due to lesser marketing.
Sophie Turner As Ariel
Sophie Turner also starred in Game of Thrones and proved her worth as Sansa Stark. Her red hair and acting skills would allow her to portray Ariel easily. This drawing also shows that the actress would look stunning as this Disney character. Of course, this would remain the audience’s fantasy.
Unfortunately, Halle Bailey has already been cast as Ariel for the upcoming film, The Little Mermaid. This version of the film will release on 26th May 2023. It would have been amazing to see Turner as Ariel, but I am sure the new team would give justice to the characters.
Rachel McAdams As Cinderella
Rachel McAdams is famous for starring in many iconic movies such as Mean Girls and The Notebook. Her acting skills are amazing, allowing her to pull off different roles easily. Cinderella matches her vibes because the actress has a royal-like appearance. She also pulls off blue dresses with high grace.
Of course, the glass shoes of Cinderella would also look perfect on her. It is a shame that Disney cast Lily James in the live-action film a few years ago. However, one can hope that filmmakers will make another version of this classic movie with Rachel McAdams as the lead.
Emma Stone As Cruella De Vil
Cruella De Vil is one of the few evil characters of Disney with their own movie. Emma Stone’s illustration attracts many viewers because the actress resembles the character. The best thing about the drawing is that Stone played the character in a live-action that was released in 2021.
She nailed Cruella De Vil’s character in the film and got praise from many critics. Sometimes the audience’s dreams do come true, and this film is proof of that. Stone has set the bar so high that no one else can play De Vil’s character with the same screen presence and vibes.
Megan Fox As Megara
Hercules is another underrated movie under the Disney banner. The role of Megara in the film will be best played by Megan Fox because of many reasons. Fox is likely to sell her soul to an underworld God for a man, just like Megara did in the Disney film.
Their red hair of Megara would also suit the actress easily. After all, not everyone can pull off a red hairstyle with grace. Another common thing between Megara and Megan is that they are naturally witty. This is why Fox will not have to put much effort into the role.
Selena Gomez As Moana
Selena Gomez has worked with Disney on different projects before. Of course, none of them involved her acting as a princess. Moana is the best option for Gomez because they both have wavy hair and tan skin. It is also easy to imagine Gomez walking toward the sea like Moana.
The best thing is that a different singer would not be needed to sing Moana’s songs. Gomez is a fantastic musician, and it would be a treat to see her act and sing in a project. As the audience, you may hope that Disney turns Moana into live-action with Gomez.
Lena Headey As The Evil Queen
Lena Headey is another prominent star of Game of Thrones. Her role as Cersei has allowed her to reach a new level of acting. This is why she can play the Evil Queen without putting in much effort. The role would come naturally to her due to her previous stints.
The best thing is that there are many similarities between Cersei Lannister and Evil Queen. Many people would also love Headey’s presence on the big screen. After all, the actress is charming with a good personality. This illustration also excites us to see Lena play Disney’s Evil Queen flawlessly.
Alyssa Milano As Ariel
Many people draw celebrities like Ariel because of the character’s excellent story. The Little Mermaid is loved by many kids and adults from all over the world. This artist made Alyssa Milano the character because she is her favorite actress. The drawing is impressive and shows the diva’s potential.
Alyssa Milano can definitely pull off Ariel’s look. Of course, whether her actions will be up to par is a debate to be done later. For now, you can appreciate the drawing and decide whether you would like to see Milano as Ariel. The Little Mermaid’s new live-action is also releasing this year.
Tom Hiddleston As Hades
Disney princesses may be more famous than the production house’s male characters, but some of them have managed their way to this list. Tom Hiddleston would play Hades perfectly in Hercules because of his incredible skills. You may remember the actor from Avengers as Hiddleston played Loki in the film.
The best thing about his previous experience as Loki is that the character is very similar to Hades. Of course, the primary difference is that they are from different planets. Both characters are funny, witty, and sarcastic. This illustration shows how perfect Hiddleston would look as Hades sipping a martini.
Lili Reinhart As Alice
Many of you may agree that Amber Heard should not play Alice’s role in Alice in Wonderland. Luckily, I have found the perfect alternative for this character that everyone would love. Lili Reinhart is an excellent choice for Alice because of her innocent look and blonde hair, offering resemblance.
You may also remember Reinhart from the ship name Bughead. Currently, she is playing the role of Betty in Riverdale. The actress has shown her versatility in the series by displaying different shades of Betty, evil and good. Lili would pull off the character with grace and innocence, charming the audience.
The Perfect Anna
I mentioned earlier that there is a better fit for Anna than Cara Delevingne. Well, you have finally managed to find the entry. Emma Watson is the perfect choice for the sweet and innocent Anna because of her soft look. Both women also look similar, as shown by this drawing.
Of course, Watson may have to change her accent if she gets to play Anna. It would be fun to see the Disney princess have a British accent. A Frozen live-action with Margot Robbie and Emma Watson will also create a buzz, unlike other Disney live-actions due to great casting.
Salma Hayek As Mother Gothel
Many people who have watched Tangled refer to the evil Mother Gothel as Rapunzel’s cruel mother. You may even be realizing the character’s name for the first time. Nonetheless, Salma Hayek is the perfect match for this Disney antagonist. From her youthful look to her vibes, Hayek matches Gothel impressively.
Some of you may even find a striking resemblance between this illustration and the original character. If Tangled ever gets a live-action, I will definitely be voting for Hayek. The magical curls would also look great on Salma. This is another reason for her to play Mother Gothel if she gets a chance.
Cara Delevingne As Anna
I have already mentioned my choice for Elsa, but Frozen has two leading ladies. Anna is another important part of the film franchise. The best choice for her, according to the audience, is Cara Delevingne. I deny this because the actress’s hard look does not match the innocent Anna’s vibes.
This illustration may have taken a lot of effort, and I appreciate the artist’s skills. However, the portrait is not the best display of Anna. Another actress would play and resemble the character better than the feisty Cara. Luckily, you can see the best choice for Anna by scrolling ahead.
Eva Green As Maleficent
Eva Green is a famous French model and actress who have been transformed by an artist into Maleficent. The diva has a resemblance to Angelina Jolie, who has already played Maleficent. This artist has added significant details to the portrait, making it more realistic than other images in this guide.
Of course, I think Jolie looks better than Maleficent. She also added an impressive aura to Maleficent’s character that other actresses may not be able to manage. However, there is no denying that Green may pull off the role. For now, you don’t have to worry about a new Maleficent.
Melissa McCarthy As The Queen Of Hearts
The Queen of Hearts is not a positive character by Disney. She is strong, and her power scares many. This is why many people would laugh hearing that Melissa McCarthy could pull off this role. After all, the actress is more famous as the queen of comedy and light roles.
Of course, the audience’s opinion may change once the new The Little Mermaid is released. McCarthy will be playing the antagonist Ursula in the new live-action. This film may also pave her pathway for playing other evil Disney characters, such as the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland.
Lucy Hale As Mavis Dracula
Lucy Hale has a doll-like appearance, but that does not mean she cannot pull off gothic roles. The actress has a similar appearance to Selena Gomez, who is the voice of Mavis Dracula in the Hotel Transylvania film franchise. This is why Hale may be suitable for the role.
The illustration also shows that Hale would look great as Mavis Dracula. Of course, the primary question is whether she would be able to act as great and do justice to the role. I think she can easily pull off the character. The actress has impressive skills, which she has proven.
Freya Allan As Cirilla
The character of Ciri is as important as the role of Henry Cavill in The Witcher. Freya Allan has proved her worth in the series with fantastic acting. This portrait captures her on-screen vibes perfectly. The best thing is that no one would have been able to play Ciri better.
Cavill may be leaving the series after season three, but Freya will remain as the main female lead. It would be interesting to see if she can recreate the same bond with Liam Hemsworth. Whatever the case, the audience is excitingly waiting for the new seasons of this fantasy series.
Halle Bailey As Ariel
Another option for Halle Bailey is Ariel. The actress starred in Grown-ish and has many fans from all over. This illustration may not be the best drawing of Ariel, but Halle Bailey is set to play the character in the upcoming The Little Mermaid film which will release in May.
Her casting received criticism from the audience, especially because of racism. However, Bailey is not discouraged by the comments. I bet she would look more amazing in the movie than this portrait shows her to be. The audience is eagerly waiting for the first look of Halle as Ariel.
Rami Malek As Jafar
Jafar may have been evil in Aladdin, but many people still love the character. After all, he brings drama to the film franchise. Rami Malek would be an excellent choice for the character. He has already shown his great skills in Bohemian Rhapsody. The actor played Freddie Mercury’s role.
The best thing about Malek is that he can easily display the deviousness of Jafar on the screen. This illustration is a prime example of how great he would have looked as a character. Unfortunately, Malek did not get the chance to play Jafar in the 2019 musical remake of Aladdin.
Arina Grande As Vanellope
Wreck-It Ralph is one of the best-animated movies by Disney because of its unique plot. It does not involve princes and princesses, but it still grabs the audience’s attention. Vanellope is the favorite character of the film, along with Ralph. Ariana Grande is the perfect celebrity for the role.
The singer wears a high ponytail and youthful clothing frequently. This is why she can easily portray the same vibes as Vanellope. The illustration also shows how amazing Grande would look if she ever got the chance to play this character. It would be amazing to see her on screen.
Chris Hemsworth As Zeus
Chris Hemsworth is famous for playing Thor in Avengers. The character is the god of thunder in the film franchise. Have you ever imagined how Hemsworth would look as Zeus, the greek god of sky and thunder? Well, this illustration shows that Chris may be able to pull off the look.
The best part is that if Tim Hiddleston plays Hades and Hemsworth portrays Zeus, they would again be playing brothers in the same movie. Remember, Loki was the brother of Thor in Avengers. So the pairing would definitely be exciting for the audience and fans of Avengers.
Naomi Scott As Jasmine
Camila Cabello looked angelic in the earlier illustration of her as Jasmine. However, this is another option for Aladdin’s princess. The interesting thing about Naomi Scott’s drawing is that the actress has played Jasmine before. She was cast in the 2019 musical version of the famous animated film by Disney.
Of course, this drawing is a bit different from the original look of Naomi in the film. The artist has combined the old and modern styles of Aladdin in this portrait, making it more unique. Scott did justice to Jasmine’s role and looks amazing in this illustration, exuding happy vibes.
Elsa 2.0 With Margot Robbie
I have mentioned Margot Robbie being the perfect fit for Elsa. This illustration by the same artist also makes me more confident. The artist created this drawing during the first attempt but destroyed it because they didn’t find it good. I beg to differ because the portrait is stunning.
There is no better actress who could play Elsa than Margot. This is because of her resemblance to the character. Robbie can also recreate the scenes with a strong screen presence. Many people cannot manage such vibes on the big screen. I am hoping that a Frozen live-action comes soon.
Scarlett Johansson As Anya
Scarlett Johansson is famous for playing the Black Widow in the Avengers film franchise. Natasha Romanova was a Russian operative before joining the superhero team. Anya from Anastasia is also a Russian character developed by Disney. This is why Scarlett is the best choice for the role in a live-action.
The illustration looks realistic, and you may not be able to find the difference between Johansson and the original drawing of Anya. Another common thing between the two is that the Disney character’s last name is also Romanov. It is as if Johansson is made exclusively for this role.
Henry Cavill As Witcher
The illustration of Henry Cavill is an excellent representation of his character in The Witcher. He is playing the role of Geralt of Riviera in the series. The audience has been impressed by Cavill’s performance in the TV show. Of course, that will soon come to an end with a new Witcher.
Cavill has announced that he will not be returning as Geralt after season three of The Witcher. Instead, Liam Hemsworth will be taking over the role from season four onwards. It would be sad to see the show with a new lead because of Henry’s strong presence.
