Disney princess parodies and mashups

Walt Disney’s animated films are a fertile ground for satire and parody.
For instance, website The Meta Picture ran a series of altered Disney movie covers with more accurate titles. “Cinderella” was renamed “Makeovers Fix Everything” and “Beauty and the Beast” became “Stockholm Syndrome.” (See the complete series here.)

Political cartoonist David Trumble imagined what some historical women would look like as Disney princesses. For instance, he drew Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as Princess Hillary Clinton. (See article by BuzzFeed.)

Olivia Mears created a taco-themed dress in the style of Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” and transformed herself into “Taco Belle.” (See article by the Huffington Post.)

Now that Disney owns the Star Wars franchise, many artists have mashed up Disney princesses and other characters with Star Wars characters, costumes and settings. The latest is from artist Isaiah Stephens. Check out “Beauty and the Beast” as Han Solo and Chewbacca. (See article by GeekTyrant.)

Artist Andrew Tarusov created a series of pictures of Disney princesses as pinup models. (See articles by the Daily Mail and Huffington Post and a sample picture of Ariel below.)

Tumblr user The Nameless Doll took stills of Disney leading ladies and gave them more realistic curves. (See article by the Daily Mail.)
On a similar theme, BuzzFeed showed the Disney princesses with realistic hair and makeup in a video. (See article on the Huffington Post.)

And finally, Funny or Die parodied all of these Disney princess reimaginings with photos and an article titled “Disney Princesses Reimagined As Murder Weapons.”
