Talented illustrator Jessica Madorran reimagines the Disney animated princess as crime-fighting warriors in this beautiful series. The illustrations showcase the princesses from a new perspective granting them more agency and strength as well as insinuating new potential storylines.

Madorran's illustrations are both whimsical and powerful transforming the princesses into majestic warriors with weaponry, tattoos and mean mugs. The illustrations capture the likes of Snow White, Ariel, Cinderella, Bell, Jasmin and even the unconventional Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas with armor that speaks to their background and cultural surroundings. For example, Belle is shown wielding a French rapier sword, Mulan has a massive crossbow and Sally holds a long scissor blade. The images highlight both the strength and beauty of these female leads.
