Illustrator Paul Westover of ‘CollegeHumor’ created a revealing series of Disney princess drawings that focuses on the dark origins of each film. Instead of recreating a child-friendly mashup of Disney characters, this series shows the blood-splattering truth about where Disney comes from.
The stories have been previously altered to suit a G-rated audience. However, these images do not follow this pattern. When Ariel’s aunt becomes jealous of Ariel’s singing and wants to cut out her tongue -- it actually happens. More examples of these images include Aladdin becoming a murderer and Cinderella’s step sister actually chopping off their toes and heels to fit the glass slipper. Other gory scenes from Disney have been turned into beautiful moments, but the movies will always be based on chilling stories.
The dark origins of Disney reveals the truth about the heartwarming films in a very unsettling way.
