Disney movies would be totally boring without its iconic villains. And if we’re being completely honest, a lot of us find some of the antagonists more lovable than the lead characters, as the former usually get the most fabulous outfits, the coolest songs, and the most memorable lines. Some fans love Disney villains so much that they used their imagination and drawing skills to turn them into princesses, and the results prove that they, too, can star in their own feature films. Check out some of those amazing artworks in the slideshow below:

Drawn by Canadian artist Jessica Nahulan, this princess version of Aladdin’s Jafar looks a lot like Jasmine. Nahulan transformed Jafar’s Royal Vizier robe into a dress and completed the genderbent character’s fiery appearance with the villain’s signature gold cobra-headed staff.

Interesting facts about BTS
  • The group name, “BTS” stands for the Korean expression Bangtan Sonyeondan which translates to “Bulletproof Boy Scouts”. Band member J-Hope said that they chose this name because it represents BTS’s desire “to block out stereotypes, criticisms, and expectations that aim on adolescents like bullets.” But that isn’t the only meaning behind the name. In 2017, BTS said, as part of their new brand identity, that their name would also stand for Beyond the Scene” which extended their name to mean “growing youth BTS who is going beyond the realities they are facing, and going forward.”
  • BTS was originally intended to be a hip-hop group, similar to YG Entertainment’s 1TYM. This was because Big Hit Entertainment CEO Bang Si-hyuk met with RM and was very impressed by his rapping talents. However, Bang Si-hyuk changed his mind and decided that today’s youth needed “a hero who can lend them a shoulder to lean on, even without speaking a single word.”
  • BTS has said that all of the following musicians have inspired their music; Post Malone, Eminem, Seo Taiji and Boys, Nas, Kanye West, Drake, Charlie Puth, Danger, and Queen.
  • The band’s first English-language single, “Dynamite”, was released on August 21st. Its video broke the YouTube record for the most viewed music video premiere, grabbing the attention of three million viewers, and it set a new record for the most viewed video on the first day of release. “Dynamite” is also the first music video on YouTube to surpass 100 million views in less than one day.
  • BTS has been often labeled as “easily the biggest and most successful name in K-pop in the world” that can “do things no other name in their genre can.” Time magazine has gone as far as calling them the “Princes of Pop.”
