Introducing Ukrainian artist Helen Morgun, who’s well-known for her incredible drawings of celebrities as Disney characters. With just under 92,000 followers on Instagram and over 350 posts, we couldn’t resist selecting our top 30 of Morgun’s transformations.

1. Tom Holland as Peter Pan

Does that make Zendaya Wendy?

2. Lily Collins as Snow White

Maybe it’s time for Collins to drop Emily In Paris and become a Disney princess once and for all.

3. Heath Ledger as Kristoff

Fun fact: Heath Ledger’s first role was actually in a school play of Peter Pan, aged 10.

4. Emma Stone as Cruella

This one kind of goes without saying, since Stone played Cruella in the 2021 live-action adaptation of the 101 Dalmatians franchise.

5. Harry Styles as Prince Adam

Yep, Adam is the hot prince from Beauty and the Beast. Shame Styles currently has shorter hair, because otherwise, they would have been near-identical.

6. Jason Momoa as Tarzan

Morgun shared on Instagram that although she thought of Harry Styles as Tarzan first, she then changed her mind and decided on Jason Momoa instead. Good pick, we say.

7. Tom Welling as Prince Ferdinand

Don’t worry, we’ve got you—Ferdinand is the prince in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Oh, and Tom Welling used to play Superman in the TV show Smallville.

8. Brad Pitt as Captain John Smith

Aka Disney’s portrayal of Pocahontas’ ‘boo’.

9. Jake Gyllenhaal as Flynn Rider

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

I’m sure Taylor Swift would agree with Morgun on that one—after all, Flynn Rider is known as a self-obsessed thief. Sounds familiar?

10. Taylor Swift as Tinkerbell

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

How could we mention this queen without transforming her into a Disney character too?

11. Henry Cavill as Prince Charming

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

Ever thought about how weird it is for Cinderella’s man to be called Prince Charming? Does that make her Cinderella Charming?

12. Zayn Malik as Aladdin

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

We love the fact that Morgun kept Zayn Malik’s real tattoo on his Disney version!

13. Ian Somerhalder as Eric

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

Oohlala, forget about the bad boy from The Vampire Diaries, we’re ready for some good guy acting.

14. Jacob Elordi as Prince Philip

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

For once, it looks like Jacob Elordi could play a good guy… Won’t hurt to put his toxic alter ego Nate Jacobs from Euphoria on hold for a little bit.

15. Zoë Kravitz as Kida

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

Kida from Atlantis: The Lost Empire definitely made a lot of us realise we were into girls…

16. Zendaya as Lilo

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

Two down-to-Earth beauties!

17. Ariana Grande as Megara (aka Meg)

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

The voice of an angel and the ponytail—this one is spot on. Not to mention she performed a rendition of Meg’s ‘I won’t say I’m in love’ back in 2020.

18. Halle Bailey as Ariel

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

Again, we’re not surprised here either since Halle Bailey is set to play Ariel in the 2023 live-action movie The Little Mermaid.

19. Rihanna as Princess Tiana

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

Simply iconic.

20. Helena Bonham Carter as Yzma

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

Aren’t they both giving off the same energy? Yzma from The Emperor’s New Groove was such a vibe.

21. Millie Bobby Brown as Belle

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

As long as Drake doesn’t play the Beast, we’re fine with this one…

22. Chris Hemsworth as Zeus

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

If the sight of Chris Hemsworth’s biceps is enough to scramble your mind as to which Disney movie has Zeus in it, it’s from Hercules.

23. Emma Watson as Anna

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

Hermione? Let it go, let it gooo.

24. Margot Robbie as Elsa

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

What a pair!

25. Rami Malek as Jafar

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

Doesn’t Rami Malek already have a cartoon-like face?

26. Tom Hiddleston as Hades

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

Can we please get a blue-haired Tom Hiddleston in real life?

27. Salma Hayek as Mother Gothel

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

Aka Rapunzel’s evil but hot fake mum.

28. Eva Green as Maleficent

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

Let’s be honest here, Angelina Jolie put aside, Eva Green would have made a great Maleficent.

29. Lady Gaga as Ursula

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Art 🌹Disney Portraits (@helen_morgun)

If you couldn’t see the similarities before now, then you really lack some imagination.

30. Scarlett Johansson as Anastasia

Technically not a Disney movie but how could we forget about Anastasia?

15 Disney princesses reimagined as modern women of the 21st century

It’s not news to anyone that Disney princesses are at the heart of Disney culture—given how most Disney movies centre around their stories, in turn, leaving an unforgettable influence on our childhood. They are often the titular characters in their films, they sing songs that are so catchy you can never truly get them out of your head and wear emblematic costumes that are still being sold to dreamy little kids to this day.

And yet, our favourite Disney princesses like Belle or Mulan are not the youngest to say the least, which means, as much as we love them, they could use a bit of a makeover. That’s where TikToker @vanotyarts (real name Yudelmis San Emeterio) comes in to save the day with her amazing artistic skills and her princesses reimagined as modern-day style icons.

1. Snow White

Forget about Snow White’s seven besties, the real star of the show is now this pair of flared trousers.

2. Ariel

A post shared by Yudelmis San Emeterio (@vanotyarts)

I always thought that modern-day Ariel would be into crochet tops. Turns out I was right.

3. Jasmine

A post shared by Yudelmis San Emeterio (@vanotyarts)

Let’s be honest here, Jasmine’s original look remains fabulous to this day. After all, there’s a reason Kim Kardashian dressed up as her on Saturday Night Live. But San Emeterio’s subtle update on Jasmine’s hairstyle is simply to die for!

4. Belle

A post shared by Yudelmis San Emeterio (@vanotyarts)

I know Belle loves to read and all that, but that does mean she doesn’t get to experiment with her clothes either. Please note how perfect her new bag would be to carry her books around.

5. Mulan

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Yudelmis San Emeterio (@vanotyarts)

Though not always the go-to favourite for young Disney enthusiasts, Mulan’s character is a force to be reckoned with, and aged 26, I’m not ashamed to admit that all of her outfits slap. Can’t say no to an added pair of grandpacore-esque ugly dad shoes, however.

If you think Mulan deserves even more of a kick-ass transformation, check out this one where she’s sporting a gnarly tattoo:

@vanotyarts

I knew that I wanted to do something more dramatic for Mulan, and I love the “ABG” look, so... #abg #mulan #disneyprincess #gloupdisney

♬ Candy - Doja Cat

6. Tiana

A post shared by Yudelmis San Emeterio (@vanotyarts)

Tiana’s new look screams strong and independent woman and I’m here for it. I can’t help but think that San Emeterio would agree with our take on princesscore. And if green doesn’t suit your taste, check this other transformation the artist has created:

7. Merida

A post shared by Yudelmis San Emeterio (@vanotyarts)

Speaking of strong and independent princesses, how cool does Merida look in dungarees?

8. Elsa, Anna and Kristoff

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by Yudelmis San Emeterio (@vanotyarts)

Kristoff’s name shouldn’t really be on this list but come on, how could you resist the beard? Also, loving the chokers on the sisters.

9. Megara (aka Meg)

@vanotyarts

Now that I think about it, I feel like Meg hasn’t gotten the love she deserves! #megara #meg #disneyprincess #gloupdisney #fyp #artvideo

♬ Where's That Girl? - Abigail Barlow & Ariza

What a babe.

10. Cinderella

@vanotyarts

I feel like I’m just living vicariously through the princesses at this point 😂 I’m painting all the dresses I’d want 👀 #cinderella #disneyprincess

♬ Ocean Eyes - Marie Joy

All it took was to replace Cinderella’s pink lip with a bold red one.

11. Tinkerbell

Not a princess, but a queen nonetheless.

12. Pocahontas

@vanotyarts

Pocahontas always had that model vibe to me 🤩 #Pocahontas #DisneyPrincess #gloupdisney

♬ Do It - Chloe x Halle

Giving off model vibes and I’m here for it.

13. Aurora

Crazy what a bit of eyeliner can do.

14. Jane

@vanotyarts

Out of all the female leads in Disney, I resonate with Jane the most. I’m still waiting for my Tarzan, though 😂 #disneyprincess #gloupdisney #jane

♬ Tarzan Medley: You'll Be in My Heart / Two Worlds / Strangers Like Me / Trashin' the Camp - Anthem Lights

Short hair, don’t care.

15. Rapunzel

@vanotyarts

The trickiness with 3D edits is that they’re a bit more involved, but Rapunzel is worth it ❤️ #rapunzel #disneyprincess #gloupdisney

♬ GREEDY x TREASURE - conradrocha

Last but not least, Rapunzel and what looks like the most complicated hairstyle ever.
