Disney princesses as comic book characters

So in my latest video I explain how I wanted to approach drawing out this concept. But I didnt really go into how I came up with this idea.

When I first thought of it I was watching my daughter play with her Wonder Woman doll she got for her birthday. I thought to myself that this was the same little girl that loved Frozen and now equally loves Moana. Here she sits, playing with a super hero doll pretending to battle some pretend villain and completely oblivious to the fact that I have just been sitting and watching her.

After a while I asked what she was doing, so she went into detail about what her mind had conjured up about Wonder Woman and all her little adventures. I then asked her if she still liked Disney movies and she said “Oh yes.” She paused for a moment and turned to me, “What if Wonder Women was a Disney princess?!” The thought took her away to some unknown land and I went with her.

I started thinking about super heroes as Disney princesses and how cool that would look. I imagined Storm from X-men right along side of Elsa creating storms of lightning and ice and the imagery in my head was nothing short of amazing. I went further down into the rabbit whole and started imaging Disney girls as super heroes and thus another YouTube video was created. So take a look and let me know what you think, who is your favorite and who you would like to see next.
