18 Disney Princesses, But Each With A Different Ethnicity

Disney’s Princesses are praised – revered, even – all around the world. Not only do they look fantastically beautiful, they’ve become role models for young girls everywhere. Their stories are one of goodness, kindness and hope.

There’s a singular problem plaguing Disney’s current line of Princesses though: its lack of diversity.  People complain that most of the princesses in Disney’s canon are white. And while Disney has tried to resolve this problem by introducing characters like Moana, the company has a long way to go in fixing this.

In the meanwhile, talented artist T.T. Brett, who has in the past re-imagined Disney princesses as their male counterparts, now has recreated the same princesses, but with different racial ethnicities! Check out his work below:

1. Rapunzel as a beautiful Mexican woman:

2. Elsa from Frozen has a more Eskimo vibe to her:

3. Merrida from Brave:

4. Cinderella as a Chinese handmaiden:

5. Meg from Hercules re-imagined as an Egyptian royalty:

6. Jasmine from Aladdin as an Asian but in a completely different part of Asia:

7. Snow White as a more racially ambiguous cutie (which also defeats the reason why we call Snow White “Snow White”)

8. Ariel as a mermaid with a different ethnicity:

9. Sleeping Beauty has always been known to look good on dreadlocks:

10. Anna also portrayed as an Eskimo girl:

11. Bella from “Beauty and the Beast”:

12. Esmeralda from “Hunchback of Notre Dame” looks the same except for the eyes:

13. Mulan as a Native American in China I suppose:

14. Kida from “Atlantis: The Lost Empire”:

15. Jane from Tarzan could’ve come from a rich Asian household:

16. Princess Eilonwy from “The Black Cauldron”:

17. Pocahontas with a more Polynesian aesthetic:

18. Tiana from “The Princess and the Frog”
