These Modern Disney Princesses Come into the 21st Century

 - Feb 22, 2014
Merida, Rapunzel, Tiana and Anna from Frozen are proof that modern Disney princesses are becoming more multi-dimensional, quirky and independent. Fans have long been bringing modern interpretations to the Disney princesses with their own art, reimagining the girls going to college, snapping selfies and taking to online dating sites in the search for a prince charming.

As well as these innocent enough activities, some of these creations also tarnish the prim and proper image of the princesses with mischievous behavior like swearing, smoking and twerking à la Miley Cyrus.

Other pop culture mashups from fans fuse the Disney girls with stars like Beyoncé, characters from TV shows like Game of Thrones, and Internet icons like Grumpy Cat.
