If Disney Villains Were Beautiful

From our own Benny Bedlam via reddit via who-knows-because-reddit-doesn’t-source comes yet another Disney themed post that I could pass up. The artist’s central question wonders if Disney villains always HAVE to be so ugly while the heroines are gorgeous.

Well, bad guys can be suave or pretty too, and so she’s taken some of the most recognizable Disney foes and given them hotness makeovers. Yes, the ladies are all here from Cruella DeVille (above) to the Queen of Hearts to Ursula, but the guys have been given the same treatment from Jafar to Hades to Captain Hook. Modeling contracts for everyone!

See the rest in a really, really long image below:

    Ya well that just changes the characters entirely! Being ugly is evil! Without that how am I supposed to tell them apart from the good guys?

    Found it! It’s a Japanese artist called “J” (which didn’t make it easy to find) at:

    Suddenly I feel very gay. Also Queen of Hearts looks like a slimmer Nigella Lawson and I like it. Also Cruella deVille could slap me in the face as much as she wants.

  • Roy

    Blah… Everyone just looks the same. Boring.

  • something or other

    Oh you mean if the characters were instead done in crappy anime style. And boring.

  • desean

    as a straight fella.. Some of those guys were quite something.!

  • Amy

    So beautiful automatically means skinny? Boo.

  • Diane

    Love this reimagination! Cruella is actually pretty fashionable and Jafar and Captain Hook are kinda hot haha

  • lana

    i would buy merchandise with these characters on it before I’d buy what Disney currently has

  • Alia P

    I think Ursula could’ve still been pretty without being made super skinny…. :/

  • Not to Mock

    The weight issue has been commented on, but why does “attractive” require that they none of them look older than their barely-mid-twenties? I mean, if that. The women are barely any of them knocking on the door of post-teen.

  • EmberLeo

    Several are changed very little, because they weren’t that unattractive to begin with.

    I would like to see the Queen of Hearts and Ursula re-imagined as beautiful *without* that meaning they’re thin, please.

    -E-

  • EmberLeo

    Also, yeah… the main traits making some of them “unattractive” is signs of age? So yeah, same problem – “Unattractive” for all the villains means either fat or gaunt, and noticeably aged. I suppose if that’s the standard for ugly, it makes sense that the standard for beautiful is narrow weight range and young.

    I think we can have a more creative standard than that, don’t you?

    -E-

  • Steve

    Uhh, folks… Ursula’s still a pretty thick girl, and her arms are thicker than her neck. She’s just no longer obese.

    Even the queen is generously pear shaped, given that she’s in a corset.

  • petrino

    more like if they were girly.

  • rnn

    To the people who comment that they could have been beautiful without being slimmed down, this is an East Asian artist. Overweight and attractive are mutually exclusive ideas to them.

  • Tag Jones

    What I really like is that they’re different, but not so different they aren’t recognizable. I kind of wish it was like this, because although evil is ugly, so often in this life ugly is disguised as good and evil is disguised as beautiful.

  • Phibonacci

    I must say they look more gay that beautiful (NTIHAPWT* !)
    They are not as charismatic as they were.

    *Not That I Have Any Problem With That

  • Guo Jia

    I recognize this artist lol. He’s the same guy that turned the casts of Final Fantasy 10 into their opposite gender lol.

    Oh, and Ursula is NOT skinny. She’s “curvy” – what a real woman should look like.

  • Hannah

    Already said, but can’t be said quite enough (obviously).

    Weight and age seems to be the main things changed.
    I also think the carachters seem to look like they all come from the same area/family. Instead of all corners of the world, they all look an big European family
    Its all too “smooth”. And boring.
    You can still have sharp carachteristics (big/pointy nose/chin for example), and be gorgeous.

    I absolutley HATE fat-shaming, and age-shaming.
    Their ages in the madeover-pictures, are just ridiculous..

    All bodytypes are fantastic in their own way, let them stay that way.
    Why change a winnig concept that MUCH?

    A big part of Ursulas character is the way she moves her fantastic, big, flowy body and tentacles, AND her short hair!
    She IS big, cynical, sexy and vain.

    Another artist coult probably have done this much better, a lot of carachter just disappeard with theese pictures.

  • Willow

    Wow. Frollo looks like a grey-haired teenager.
    And as much as I like them, Ursula looks like Ursula on a diet, or maybe Ursula’s daughter.
    The Queen of hearts looks like The Princess of Hearts- she really looks nothing like the original.
    Hades again, seems to have gotten much younger. And he doesn’t look like Hades one bit.
    That being said,
    I love Cruella! She is awesome.
    Also, Dr.Facilier looks great- and a lot like the original.
    Captain Hook and Jafar are awesome… But that may be just because I find them kinda…. I’ll be objective. Jafar seems to have aged down at least ten years, and Captain Hook, too. But not as much as the others, and I would have still easily known who they are.
    Shun Yu looks very similar to the original.

    Also, to the guy who said The Queen and Ursula aren’t that thin… Screw you.
    That’s really thin. Almost as much as the princesses, and don’t get me started on how thin those are…
    Have you seen Jasmine’s waist? No? Me either!

  • Dochan

    How about you people stop complaining? I mean, isn’t beauty in the eye of the beholder? If this is what the artist finds beautiful then it should be fine, just because they don’t share the same views as you doesn’t give you a right to make a fuss and tell the artist that they should change it. I also don’t think that you have to be stick thin to be beautiful but I’m not going to push MY interpretation of beauty onto others.

  • Justin

    To all the people complaining about the artist slimming down two of the characters.. get over it. Being obese (Ursula) is not attractive. Some people don’t find overweight attractive. Get over it. The world shouldn’t have to change to fit your beliefs.

  • G

    @Guo Jia- What an awful, ignorant comment. Women are not *meant* to be curvy- or any other one ideal type. By trying to show your “acceptance” of the larger body type, you’ve ostracized a whole other part of the female population. There is absolutely no such thing as a “real women”. All women are real. You can find whatever body type as attractive or unattractive as you want, but please stop with the “real women” garbage.

  • what?

    Adele is talented, not hot.

  • Seamus Corbett

    I find it interesting that the conceit of this whole thing is that ugly=evil. The art here neglects Maleficent, Gaston, Queen Grimhilde, or Mother Gothel. Each of them is undeniably evil, yet are known for the way they look and the extreme measures to which some of them will go to preserve their beauty.

    Another point: I’d hardly call Doctor Facilier ugly. It looks a little more like he was made “less ethnic”, which is not cool at all. He was a little exaggerated in the movie, but he was a good-looking guy. It looks like the artist here took issue with the fact that his features were a little too African than he or she was comfortable with.

  • Gan_HOPE326

    Some drawings are quite good, but some don’t make much sense… yes, Frollo could be cuter, but he’s still supposed to be a man in his 50s/60s. They could have made him a beautiful but older man. That youngster is a bit ludicrous in the role.

  • Mart

    All pictures are drawn by one artist so of course they will looke similar to each other. And to those sensitive folks who are crying about their weight difference as if they were real people please stop. Although iconic these characters are examples of blatant stereotypes by today’s standards and they from a much different age with a different concepts of good and evil. I would love to hear your opinions if the characters were changed from the bottom picture to the top one.

  • Wilezra

    Whoa.. Some of the guy pics kinda make me feel gay lol

    Srsly tho, nice work by the artist!

  • Dezzy

    Uhhhhhh The Queen of Hearts and Ursula are supposed to be fat. Fat women can be beautiful too, you know. Ever seen Adele before she lost weight?

  • Liz

    I agree with Dezzy, I wish they’d at least kept Ursula larger. She’d be a gorgeous bigger lady imo.

  • Mae

    Oh come on, everyone needs to quit whining. So the characters aren’t the same weight and age as they were before. Guess what? It’s his art.

    He’s a Japanese artist. You might not like it, but in Japan, young and smaller IS beautiful. Who are you to dictate the values of another culture?

    Not everyone has to cater to American values, that’s selfish.

  • gIGI

    cool.

  • Kingdome

    I have the hots for Shan Yu :3

  • Sinamom

    Is the artist Japanese? Because all the guys are total bishies.

  • Francesca

    oh please guys, it’s obvius that they’re better ’cause they are skinny and young. it’s a rule. you can’t be beautiful if you are fat and old and I’m not telling this because I have a super hot body but ’cause I don’t.

  • Steve

    Screw me? Are you fat or something?

  • Saciel

    If Lafayette had looked that way he wouldn’t have had problems with his “friends in the shadows” because he would have gotten every damned soul they wanted. I am pretty sure some of the others wouldn’t even have become villains because people had dropped at their feet, especially Jafar would probably have had less problems with a coup and acquiring power.

  • LBattle0819

    That Shan-Yu looked awesome

  • Nathan Forester

    For some reason Handsome Jafar has sort of a Johnny Depp look to him.
