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

05/15/17 Jorge Rodriguez-Jimenez

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.
