What Disney Princesses Look Like in the Cartoons vs the Live-Action Versions

year ago

Disney has already released 20 live-action adaptations of its own animated movies, and 4 more will be released in 2023 and 2024. When it comes to the beloved Disney princesses, some have already made the jump to the real world, giving us a chance to see a brand-new version of a dear childhood character.

Ariel — The Little Mermaid (1989) and The Little Mermaid (2023)

  • Voiced by: Jodi Benson
  • Portrayed by: Halle Bailey

Belle — Beauty and the Beast (1991) and Beauty and the Beast (2017)

Jasmine — Aladdin (1992) and Aladdin (2019)

  • Voiced by: Linda Larkin
  • Portrayed by: Naomi Scott

Cinderella — Cinderella (1950) and Cinderella (2015)

  • Voiced by: Ilene Woods
  • Portrayed by: Lily James

Mulan — Mulan (1998) and Mulan (2020)

Snow White — Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) and Snow White (2024)

  • Voiced by: Adriana Caselotti
  • Portrayed by: Rachel Zegler

The live-action adaption of Snow White is set to be released in 2024, and it will star Rachel Zegler in the role of the princess herself and Gal Gadot as the Evil Queen. At the time of writing, there are no sneak peeks into how the actress will look in character, so we can only imagine it based on her most acclaimed role yet as Maria in West Side Story (2021).

Bonus: Tinker Bell — Peter Pan (1953) and Peter Pan & Wendy (2023)

Tinker Bell was briefly part of the Disney royal family as she, too, was officially consideredprincess. However, she gained a new title when the Disney Fairies franchise started in 2005.
