These princesses are definitely not damsels in distress.
I am sure you all know about the ‘innocent’ and ‘weak’ nature of most Disney princesses. While this has been changing in recent years with movies like Moana and Merida, we still have a long way to go.
Well one artist Madorran has taken some steps to ensure that it does. I might have seen many re-imaginations of Disney Princesses but this one brings something special to the overcrowded table and that is truly amazing.
I have loved all things Disney since I was young. Empowering Belle with the rapier really transformed the drawing and also inspired me to continue with [more drawings].
These women may be princesses, but that doesn’t mean they’re powerless! They are truly strong characters in their own right … and definitely cannot be considered damsels in distress.
#1 Ariel from The Little Mermaid.
Would arrows really work underwater though?
#2 Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
What happened to the beasts eye? Did Belle do that?
#3 Jasmine from Aladdin.
Now that is one fierce Jasmine.
Mulan was already pretty fierce to start with.
Where is her pan though?
#6 Snow White from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Two axes to cut poisonous apples with maybe?
