If Disney Characters Were Drawn By Tim Burton


We all love Tim Burton. Movies like Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Corpse Bride are all beloved films by this director who has a clearly recognizable style that all have come to know and love. Now, if you’ve ever wondered what our favorite cutesy Disney characters would look like in this style, you can stop wondering. Here […]

We all love Tim Burton. Movies like Edward ScissorhandsThe Nightmare Before Christmas, and Corpse Bride are all beloved films by this director who has a clearly recognizable style that all have come to know and love. Now, if you’ve ever wondered what our favorite cutesy Disney characters would look like in this style, you can stop wondering.

Here are ten images of classic Disney films re-imagined by artist Andrew Tarusov in the style of Tim Burton:

Snow White, 1938

Snow White was the first Disney princess, and as such, she is deeply embedded in our hearts. Instead of squirrels and birds flying around her though, in this version, it’s spiders and bats.

Pinocchio, 1940

Pinocchio is the classic tale we all know about the puppet who wanted to become a real boy. In this version, Pinocchio is definitely still wooden, and even has his *liar liar* nose all grown out. Be careful – it’s so sharp it looks like he could easily stab you with it.

Dumbo, 1941

Dumbo, the classic tale about the orphaned circus elephant, is one of the most tragic and saddening Disney movies – and this rendition perfectly captures that emotion (think “Pink Elements of Parade”).

Bambi, 1942

We all know that opening number of Bambi where he loses his parents… can’t you just see that loneliness on Bambi’s face here? The darkness of the empty woods perfectly encapsulates it all.

Sleeping Beauty, 1959

Sleeping Beauty… Wish we could all be her, amirite? Prince Phillip looks super determined to save his beauty from her eternal sleep in this one. Aurora on the other hand… Well, she’s not going anywhere.

101 Dalmations, 1961

The devil is in the details, in this one.

The Little Mermaid, 1989

Under the sea… of creepy, dark, depressing of darkness.

The Beauty and the Beast, 1991

Bittersweet and strange… Something here has definitely changed.

Aladdin, 1992

Get lost on that magic carpet ride… to a whole new *dark* world.

The Lion King, 1994

Yep. This is definitely what The Lion King would look like if Scar were in charge of the production.
