Artists Recreates Famous Cartoon Characters Into Real Life Versions of Themselves

We all have adored the famous Disney fantasy series and the characters have created a deep bond in our hearts.

Disney Studio has this interesting habit of innovating the classical characters of its cartoon series every year.

And it is indeed exciting to envision these characters with a modern aura.

This time it has been one of the most striking perspectives on the revivalist movement for these cartoon characters, as Fernanda Suarez (all the way from Chile) and Jirka Vaatainen (from Finland) took it upon themselves to add an astounding flair of realism to these animated cartoon characters.

These artists have breathed a new life in the characters by portraying them as real-life individuals. It is not only exciting to see all your favorite characters with a new perspective, but they seem to be more alive and as if they have been walking among us!

Imagine Princess Jasmine as your next-door neighbor?!

Jirka Vaatainen and Fernanda Suarez have diligently created several realistic portraits of all these famous Disney villains, heroes, and princesses!

You’ll be pleasantly surprised to find out that your cherished Disney characters seem more enigmatic with all the charisma and magical touch intact.

It is a tough decision to figure out ‘THE BEST’ one among this series, but let’s dive in…!
