If you love Disney Princesses and love reading manga, then you have probably wondered how Cinderella, Ariel, Jasmine, and other Disney royalties would look like if they’re characters in a Japanese graphic novel. Well, wonder no more, as talented Pakistani illustrator Maryam Safdar have beautifully re-imagined your favorite Disney Princesses as manga characters. Take a look at her vivid collection of manga-style Disney Princesses drawings below:
Dressed in her sparkling silvery-blue ball gown, Cinderella oozes elegance and allure. With her strawberry-blonde hair pulled into a French twist, the former scullery maid stunningly accentuates her slender neck by wearing a simple black choker around it.
#2 Aurora from Sleeping Beauty
Aurora has apparently got a lot of beauty rest to look as pretty as this. The subtle smile on her face and the sincere look in her dreamy eyes show her undeniable sweetness — an attribute that has probably made Prince Philip fall for her long before finding out that they’re actually betrothed.
#3 Ariel from The Little Mermaid
Long before bright red locks became a trend, Ariel has been rocking that hair color since 1989. While a number of people associate her red hair to her rebellious tendencies, there are also some who sees her unique crowning glory as symbol of her headstrong and confident personality.
#4 Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
The youngest of all the Disney Princesses, Snow White is beaming with innocence and optimism. Though being criticized for trusting strangers immediately, The Fairest One of All teaches us to see the goodness in everyone and that real beauty comes from within.
#5 Jasmine from Aladdin
Usually seen in her blue cropped top that reveals her midriff and belly button, Jasmine is considered by many as the sexiest Disney Princess. And even though her flat tummy is nowhere to be seen in this lovely fan art, her tantalizing brown eyes and kissable pink lips already make her worthy of the title.
#6 Rapunzel from Tangled
Rapunzel may have lived her entire life locked inside a hidden tower, but she’s no damsel in distress. As one can see in her large green eyes, the Princess of Corona has a knack for adventure and a thirst to discover new things.
If looks could kill, then Pocahontas should be put behind bars for her striking beauty. But more than being physically attractive, Pocahontas is a brave, strong-willed woman who wants nothing but peace for her people.
While Mulan looks extra modest in this fan art, don’t be deceived by her sweet and charming appearance. To prevent her war veteran father from returning to battle, this fearless farm girl wholeheartedly took her dad’s place under the guise of a male soldier.
#9 Tiana from The Princess and the Frog
Though Tiana looks stunning in her green strapless ball gown, the Princess of Maldonia will never trade her chef’s uniform with any kind of royal clothing. Prior to starting her own restaurant with her husband Naveen, Tiana worked hard as a waitress for two local diners to save up money for her dream venture.
#10 Alice from Alice in Wonderland
If you’re looking for a fun company, Alice would be a perfect choice. As her big blue eyes give away, this girl from England has a vivid imagination that can turn the mundane into something special.
#11 Merida from Brave
In addition to being skilled in sword fighting and horse riding, Merida is also of the best archers in the Kingdom of DunBroch. But despite her tough exterior and tomboyish personality, she actually has a soft heart for her family, especially for her younger triplet brothers, Harris, Hubert, and Hamish.
#12 Elsa from Frozen Fever
Wearing her hair in her signature French braid, Elsa looks mesmerizing in her green off-the-shoulder dress from the short animated film Frozen Fever. Though the Queen of Arendelle suffers from a cold in the entire movie, all we can see in this amazing fan art is her poise, regal, and class.
#13 Anna from Frozen Fever
Anna’s radiant smile perfectly complements her yellow green spring-themed top from Frozen Fever. The Princess of Arendelle memorably gets a surprise birthday celebration in the flick, and that’s possibly the reason behind her generous smile in this meticulously detailed illustration.
#14 Kida from Atlantis: The Lost Empire
Rocking a long white hair and a set of blue tattoo under her left eye, the always vigilant Kida is not your typical Disney Princess. For one, while she physically resembles someone in her mid-late 20s, the Princess of Atlantis is actually between 8,500 – 8,800 years old.
#15 Giselle from Enchanted
Portrayed by Amy Adams in the 2007 hybrid film Enchanted, Giselle is actually an amalgamation of four different Disney Princesses. But despite being inspired by Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, and Ariel, the strawberry-blonde haired lady has one thing that her colleagues don’t have: an ability to communicate with all kinds of animals.
#16 Ariel Vol. 2 from The Little Mermaid
Ariel trades her mermaid tail for a sparkling blue green gown that makes her red long locks pop up even more. Though she’s not wearing her iconic lavender seashell bra, the Princess of Atlantica completes her look with a pair of lavender seashell earrings and an under-the-sea brooch.
#17 Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame
With Esmeralda’s exotic beauty, it’s easy for any guy to fall for her. But her alluring physical appearance isn’t her defining trait. It is actually her compassion to others, especially to the oppressed, that make her truly beautiful.
#18 Jane from Tarzan
Wearing her iconic yellow dress with a purplish blue cravat, Jane looks like your typical prim and proper Englishwoman. While she tries to stay true to her roots as an upper-class lady from England upon her arrival in Africa, the blue-eyed artist eventually becomes carefree and laid-back as she adapts to the jungle life with the help of Tarzan.
#19 Megara from Hercules
Though Megara’s snarky eyes remind us of her dark time as a reluctant minion of Hades, her sweet smile suggests that she has totally abandoned her cynical ways and has started to believe that there’s still good in the world.
#20 Tinker Bell from Peter Pan
Tinker Bell charmingly shows off her slender body, magical fairy wings, and adorable puffball flat shoe. But despite her cute appearance, Peter Pan’s sidekick isn’t someone you would like to pick a fight with. Because aside from being feisty and sassy, she can also be daring especially when the ones she loves are in danger.
