Disney Princesses Reimagined As Career-Driven Women Is The Fairytale We Need

All of us have grown up reading bedtime fairytales that fueled our childhood dreams. Whether it’s wanting to be a real life princess or dressing up as one in every fancy dress competition ever… Cinderella and Ariel were literally our role models.

It’s only when we actually started to adult that we realised that the plot of these stories was a load of BS. Like, their only life goals were to be rescued by a Prince Charming, and get married. Or as in Sleeping Beauty’s case, get kissed in her sleep. I mean, the concept of consent was literally thrown out the window, and then buried six feet into the ground. But there seems to be hope for the future generation to write their own tales. Ones that respect, and celebrate women as brave, ambitious, and positively fierce!

One illustrator, Matt Burt decided to give these fairytale divas a makeover. A much-needed one at that! What if our beauties had careers? What if they had ambitions, dreams, and took up roles that were more than just being delicate, and pretty?

Disney princesses have been given careers by Burt, and they make so much sense. I could totally see the story becoming hell a lot interesting after looking at these designs. We need more of this, and less of sympathy-seeking, sad yet gorgeous princesses. I wonder if the idea was inspired by the real life princess — Meghan Markle.

Scroll down to see your fave Disney characters in a new avatar, and get ready to visualise them in a new but kickass way!

Jasmine as a UN ambassador, ’cause she has always been about equality, and is fighting for women to be treated the same all over the globe.

Aurora or Sleeping Beauty has to be the funniest! She is the CEO of a coffee company. Hilarious? I know!

Tiana is an award-winning chef. Quite predictable.

Animals helped her break free, so it’s time she gives all the good back to them. Cinderella is an animal rights activist. Damn right.

Elsa and Anna are probably the most kickass climate change researchers around.

Mulan is a lawyer in this world, and we cannot keep calm!

Snow White channels her inner therapist, ’cause no one else can take care of seven widely different dwarfs. No one.

Belle is our superstar, so she is the chancellor. But of course.

Ariel has always been interested in music, so Burt imagined her as a pop star! And she has a lot of records to her name.

Rapunzel is the caretaker everyone needs. The natural healer becomes the doctor of the century!

Pocahontas is a social activist, saving the environment. What a babe!
