  • Your Favourite Disney Animals Have Been Humanized


    Remember your favourite Disney movies from your childhood? The Lion King is most certainly popular in Egypt. But what if Simba and Nala were human?…

    DeviantArt illustrative magician Alaina Bastian has humanized all your favourite Disney animals, and you almost love them even more now that they look like your species.

    In her project, ‘Humanized’, Bastian has re-imagined characters from classics, such as Lady & the Tramp, to more recent Disney flicks, like Bolt and Zootopia.

    The artist managed to perfectly encapsulate the characters’ unique personalities.

    Speaking to Buzzfeed, Bastian says she was inspired to start the project by her friends’ race- and gender-bent Disney edits on Tumblr.

    “I’ve also pulled a lot of inspiration – specifically for The Lion King and The Jungle Book – from the musical and live performances,” she said.

    We love how she re-imagines these iconic horse sidekicks according to their ethnicity.

    Her favourite humanized characters, she says, are Duchess & Thomas O’Malley from The Aristocats.

    Our favourite, however, has gotta be the Oliver & Company gang.

    Bastian plans on continuing the project, and is currently working on humanized sketches of characters from 2009’s The Princess & the Frog, as well as the classic Bambi and the original Disney animal, Mickey Mouse.
