Walt Disney’s first original character was a rabbit. Disney is the home of fantasy where all kinds of people and things are turned into magical beings. It’s not just about the stories that we love so much, but also about the nostalgic feeling that they give us, the thrill we get every time we see our favorite princes and princesses, as well as the heartwarming scenes. It brings back memories of our childhood and what it’s like to be a kid again. At Bright Side, we compiled a list of celebrities and what they would look like if they ever became Disney princes and princesses.
Reality brings a lot to the imagination. And it is even more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited but the imagination can take over the world. Knowledge will get you from A to Z and your imagination will get you literally everywhere. So why not to relax today and let it flow and fill us with pure fantasy and insight.
A different angle, the lighting, a strange perspective, or a combination of all these things can turn a photo that was going to be normal into a real puzzle that puts our mind to work more than usual. At first, it seems that we have entered the world of fantasy in which everything is possible: a giraffe without a neck, a flying boat, an invisible chair... Only later, and sometimes with a lot of effort, does our brain manage to assimilate a strange image, and once that happens, everything makes sense again.
Sometimes we’re drawn to movie villains more than the main characters and psychologists have an explanation for this. When identifying ourselves with a negative character, the viewer gets a chance to explore their dark side without showing it in real life. Moreover, it’s even harder to resist such temptation when it comes to female villains — all because movie directors tend to invite “good girls” to play these roles.
Statistics say that the average person in the US spends more than 4 hours watching TV every day. No wonder we fall in love with movie couples and empathize with them so much. Many of us are likely “happily ever after” fans, who want our favorite on-screen couples to overcome all their obstacles, get married, and have kids.
With so many fantasy movies and books around, it’s virtually impossible to stop imagining worlds full of magic all the time. Henk is the perfect example of that. He’s almost 70-year-old, but he has always loved to make furniture with unique and special features. While at first glance you might think they are broken or that they came straight out of a fairy tale, these pieces are fully functional, and their flaws are small details that turn these objects into something truly amazing.
At the beginning of the 2000s, Brendan Fraser was a Hollywood actor with great potential.

We have published stories several times about parents whose actions insulted their kids for life. Some adults didn’t keep their promises, others punished their offspring unfairly, and then there were the ones who didn’t support their kids during a difficult moment. Luckily, not all parents are the same. Some of our readers told us about things from their childhood that helped them feel the sincere love of their parents.
We all can likely still recall a cartoon that we loved during childhood. Perhaps we became so fond of the characters that we wished they were real so that we could be their friends. Indeed, fantasy is limitless in a child’s mind.
British period dramas have always been dominated by all-white casts, something that is gradually changing. Many people disagree with casting people of color in traditionally white characters saying that it is a distortion of history. However, “colorblind casting” isn’t an attack on white characters, but simply an opportunity for actors of color to portray characters and tell their stories.
Oftentimes, we don’t want to start watching a new series because it seems too long and has an overwhelming number of supporting characters. That’s why more and more shows are getting released in a mini-series format that most of us prefer. As a rule, these shorter series are more dynamic and involve the viewer so deeply, they quickly push aside the desire to get any sleep.
Sometimes, artists are called visionaries, because they’re able to precisely envision and illustrate their ideas about the world of the future. And although it’s still too early to judge whether Tithi Luadthong (Username: grandfailure on the Depositphotos stock image platform) will become one of the outstanding futurists, what we can do now is enjoy some of his digital masterpieces.

If you are ready to find out something new about the world around you and contemplate how things may turn out in the future, we invite you to scroll down and take a look at these 18 fantasy illustrations by Tithi Luadthong.

A wedding day is one of the most touching moments in a person’s life, and sharing joy and tears of happiness with parents and future spouses can take anyone’s breath away. Though we all are well aware of each Disney character’s love story, still, we rarely see their wedding days. A Russia-based artist named Oksana Zolotareva Pashenko decided to fantasize about this topic and created a series of pictures with Disney princesses sharing their big days with their parents. The most interesting thing is that even parents who’ve passed away (which is why they’re depicted in semi-transparent mode) are present in her pics.
We all view Disney as a world of fantasy and eternal joy, but artist Tom Ward thinks differently. He wants to show us a more authentic and up-to-date side of this magical universe. With his creative skills, this illustrator has managed to mix the essence of each character and their story with the world we live in today, and the result ended up being somewhat revealing and very, very original.
One of the reasons why so many of us enjoy reading fantasy books is the breathtaking world they portray and the most unusual heroes and things that they contain.

Ronald Ong, a Malaysian artist, has set on a quest to prove that the world we live in is everything but common. His illusions uncover a world of fantasy where clouds can become fried eggs or bananas jump out of the water just like dolphins. And we’d love to spend at least one day there.

Thanks to advances in technology, movies are now able to be re-imagined as realistically as possible. In the fantasy, action and sci-fi genres, we are now able to experience by sight what used to only be written in books or brought to life in movies using props and makeup. Take JRR Tolkien’s The Hobbit published in 1937 for example. The movie series for this book finally appeared in 2012 with the help of computer-generated imagery.
The characters of our favorite books often come alive on movie screens. Of course, actors playing them don’t always match the age of their characters. For example, the age difference between Audrey Hepburn and her character Holly Golightly is 14 years. While Vasily Livanov played Sherlock Holmes while he was 17 years older than the character. Anyway, is it even possible to imagine someone in their place?
