We Recast 9 Disney Princesses As Latinas And The Results Are Beautiful

For many, Disney princesses are an iconic part of many of our childhood. Many of us dressed up as Ariel from “The Little Mermaid” or Blancanieves for Halloween. However, until recent Disney leads like Elena and Moana, we didn’t see ourselves in many of the main characters. Here’s what some of the old school Disney fairytales would look like if they starred Latinas.

Jackie Cruz would make a chill Queen Elsa of Arendelle.

Imagine Cruz using her voice to give “Let It Go” some new dimension.

And, of course, Cruz’s bestie would have to play Princess Anna of Arendelle.

They are already the most adorable friendship on social media and IRL so it just makes sense to cast them as sisters.

Bella Throne would totally fit in as part of Ariel’s world.

She’s a redhead, grew up in south Florida, and can channel that Caribbean vibe via her Cuban roots.

Shakira can definitely add some beauty and great dance moves as Princess Aurora.

Plus the three fairies can be reimagined as fussy and nosy tías to up the humor level of this Disney classic.

Gina Rodriguez would stun as a modern version of Belle.

She’s got the heart, the hair, and the bubbly and determined personality that made Belle the princess of the people.

Who wouldn’t want to watch Jennifer Lopez play Princess Cinderella?

Her Met Gala look was already giving us some Cinderella vibes so why not just make it legit and make her this iconic princess. Just so long as she doesn’t mind wearing some glass heels and losing one at the stroke of midnight.

Paulina Rubio can definitely bring the energy and playfulness needed to pull off Princess Merida of DunBroch.

The Mexican singer and actor also has the hair needed to sell this roll.

Imagine getting tangled up watching Camila Cabello bring Rapunzel to life.

Get it? Cabello = hair. ?

Last, but not least, Selena Gomez would leave us like ? as Snow White.

She was a Disney kid thanks to “Wizards of Waverly Place” so it wouldn’t be a total stretch to see her give this Disney movie a little update.

If You Were A Dormilón You’ll Recognize All These Ways Our Moms Woke Us Up For School

@ThiaFireproof / @BrennanLawPA / Twitter

LA schools are working on starting their days later because more and more young people are not getting the sleep they need. I wish this had been the law when I was growing up, because getting out of bed was a struggle. I had a mom, who like most moms had no time or help, and definitely had no patience when it came to me wanting to sleep in.

You know how it starts, just like I do:

You somehow stayed up late watching TV with the brightness down and close captions on.

Because you know mami’s hearing is better than a fruit bat and she wasn’t having no late nights.

Then, at some point around 3am, you decide, “okay, I can probably go to bed now, I’ll get 5 hours, I’ll be fine.”

When you’re negotiating with yourself and doing that sleep-math, you know you’re screwed.

The alarm goes off, and if you blink once, you’re done.

The warning label for alarm clocks should read “WARNING: Hours can pass in the blink of an eye.”

But there’s one alarm that isn’t snoozed so easily.

It’s mami and she knows JUST how to get your ass out of bed. Your mom has a list of ways to get you up and out the door. And they go a little something like this:

1. “El cuco viene a despertarte…”

There’s nothing that will get you in or out of bed faster than an “El Cuco” threat. And you know mami has him on speed dial.

2. “Te bañas o te baño.”

Nothing like a good shower to wake you up. Too bad it happened while you were still in bed.

3. “¿Quieres la chancla?”

Whether she’s ever used it on your or not, you don’t want to test her this early in the morning. A chancletazo would mess up your day big time – especially if you had to tell your friends later. They’d never let you live it down.

4. Switching the lights on and off.

“Yes, ma. Simulating a thunderstorm is going to wake me up real quick…”

5. Shouting, clapping, screaming, singing, blasting the radio, shouting again.

Anything to shake you out of your sleep-fog.

6. Pulling you out of the bed by your feet.

Or when that doesn’t work, straight up ripping the covers off and leaving you there shivering.

7. Jumping on your bed.

She wouldn’t do this one often, but if she had to, it was going down, mijo.

But that doesn’t matter as long as you’re following mami’s rules at home, coño!
