Jaw-Dropping Images of Disney Princes in Real Life

Jaw-Dropping Images of Disney Princes in Real Life

The Disney movies we all grew up with have certainly set us up with high expectations of what love and our ‘prince charming’ should be like. These two-dimensional charmers taught us that you can fall in love with someone after singing a duet or dancing until midnight at a ball, but really everything about it is pretty unrealistic.

Thanks to Jirka Väätäinen, now we can see what those unrealistic princes would look like in the real world. Through a process of digital compositing, photo-manipulation, and digital painting, the artist reimagined some of our favorite princes like Prince Eric, Aladdin, and John Smith to show what they would look like in real life.

Trust us, these transformations are jaw-dropping.
