Twisted Disney Princesses
Updated: Added the artist’s other princesses and included their back stories from the source.
Ok, this is a little out there even by my standards. I made myself pause and think about if I really wanted to post these as they lean a little more to the PG-13 side of things and I try to keep my site strictly PG. On top of that, I’m not so sure that these should be called ‘art’ in honor of the Disney Princesses or maybe more so just some twisted person’s interpretation. Either way here they are. I think I like them because they remind me somewhat of the punk Nintendo Princesses. We have illustrator Jeffrey Thomas to thank for these darker Disney Princesses.
Twisted Alice’s Story
So the story behind my Alice is after she’s declared guilty, the Queen of Hearts and her army proceed to chase Alice through Wonderland. Unfortunately, Alice trips and hurts her leg, allowing them enough time to catch up to her. Alice is then dragged away by the Queen’s soldiers. All of this is being watched by the Cheshire Cat who’s hiding in the shadows. Alice is taken to the center of the Queen’s garden maze where all the bodies of the many victims of the tyrannical Queen are discarded. And like all of the Queen’s victims, Alice is beheaded and left in the center of the maze to rot. Unknown to the Queen, the Cheshire Cat followed her to the center of the maze and witnessed the tragic execution of the young girl. Once the Queen and her army has left, the Cheshire Cat appears. He feels extremely guilty for the death of this little girl…but that feeling soon passes, for the Cheshire Cat now had himself a new toy…a new body to posses…a new puppet to carry out his twisted motives. Wonderland WILL be his!
Twisted Esmeralda’s Story:
Frollo raids the Court of Miracles and captures Esmeralda, Quasimodo, and Phoebus. He declares that Esmeralda will be burned at the stake for being a “witch” while Phoebus is sentenced to death. Quasimodo is locked and chained up in one of the bell towers overseeing Esmeralda’s execution. Frollo proceeds to light the wood around Esmeralda and the flames begin to circle her. Quasi manages to break free of his restraints in order to rescue Esmeralda. Unfortunately, he was unable to make it to her before the flames consumed half of her. He wrapped her in a cloak and retreated with her in his arms, back to the bell tower as the town square broke out in a riot. Phoebus attempted to break free from his captors in order to assist Quasi and Esmeralda but was killed in the process. Frollo in all his anger and rage grabs a small team of soldiers and infiltrates Notre Dame while up in the bell tower Quasi lays down Esmeralda who was badly burned from the fire. She showed no response to Quasi’s attempts at waking her. He fully covered her with the cloak and began to cry. Frollo heard the sniffling of Quasi through the door and entered with a knife behind his back. He pretended to console Quasi but before Quasi could react, Frollo slit his throat. Quasi’s lifeless body laid on top of Esmeralda. Frollo turned to leave the bell tower just as Emseralda raised behind him. He turned and looked into her eyes, one whitened completely by the fire and in a raspy voice she said “You’ll pay!” Frollo was disgusted with Esmeralda’s new appearance and lunged at her with his dagger. She grabbed his wrist and flipped him into the corner. He began to yell for the guards who stormed the bell tower and circled her. They all proceeded to attack her but they were no match for her cunning which was now fueled by revenge. All the soldiers fell before her as Frollo cringed and tried to back further into the corner. She turned her attention to him. She strolled to him slowly, and picked up a torch from one of the fallen soldiers. He looked her in the eyes, and all he could see was the hatred she had for him and her determination for revenge. He became paralyzed with fear. She raised the torch above her head and said, “You will burn! You will all burn!!!”…

Twisted Kida’s Story:
As the Atlantis Discovery Team were saying their goodbyes and loading up their ship to return to the surface, Kida passed out while talking to Audrey. Milo and Dr. Sweet, as well as the rest of the crew, rush to her aid. They take her to the throne room and lay her down. Dr. Sweet proceeds to examine her but is unable to determine what could of caused her to lose consciousness. Suddenly, Kida’s eyes open and glow an eerie blue light. Everyone stepped back as she rose to her feet. Her skin began to crack and peel and the eerie blue light began to radiate from the cracks. Milo ran to her but was knocked back by the energy surging from her body. He quickly retrieves the Shepherd’s Journal and flips through it frantically trying to find what could possibly be happening to Kida. Milo froze in horror as he found a passage that contained the answer. The answer he wished wasn’t true. Kida had been exposed to the power of the crystal for too long. The crystal was draining her of her life. And according to the journal, the crystal will continue to drain the host until there’s nothing left, unless another life is sacrificed in its stead. The crew thought they contained the threat but it only subsided, taking over Kida from the inside. The crystal needed more life force and was drastically draining Kida of hers. She dropped to the ground and began coughing up blood. A couple Atlantian guards rushed to her side to assist her. As they helped her up, she threw one of the guards into the water. The other guard tried to restrain her, but she was too powerful. She turned and bit the guard and proceeded to devour his body. As she ate, the remnants of the guard’s body withered and turned to dust. Kida looked at Milo and his team as they stared on in horror. She slowly picked herself up. Her eyes met Milo’s and they began to glow more intensely. Milo and his team began to inch backwards as he tried to reason with her and calm her down. Kida let out a chilling growl as blood continued to drip from her mouth. They took another step back, but then Kida attacked….DUN DUN DUN!!!
Twisted Meg’s Story:
OK, so the story behind my design for Meg is Hercules didn’t make it to her soul in time and died trying to save her. Hercules’s death fulfilled Meg’s contract with Hades and so Hades restored her soul to her body and freed her. Meg was shattered at the loss of her true love and would do anything to get him back (which I know got her into her initial dealings with Hades to begin with ). But she knew Hercules was different and that he would be true to her no matter what. The Fates saw the situation that Meg was in and offered her a deal. If Meg agreed to become the Keeper of the Eye, then they would restore life to Hercules. Meg accepted without hesitation. The eye of fate was then sewn into her head and she became their slave. Almost immediately, life was restored to Hercules. However, he came back as an animated corpse without a soul. But even without a soul, his undying love for Meg still shined through his undead shell and he remained by her side for eternity. The Fates did tell Meg that there WAS a way to restore his soul, but the only person that could do it was Hades….
Dun dun dun, I wonder what she’ll do to get Hercules’s soul back from Hades…CLIFFHANGER! hahaha
Twisted Mulan’s Story
The story behind her design is the Huns destroy Mulan’s village, killing everyone…including her. Her ancestors send Mushu to retrieve the spirits of their fallen family. Upon collecting Mulan’s spirit, she begs Mushu to restore her spirit to her body so she can defeat the Huns and avenge the death of her family. Mushu does so, but in order to bring her back to life, he must fuse his body with hers. When he does, he becomes a living tatoo on her body, his appearance altered by Mulan’s rage and hatred for the Huns.

Twisted Pocahontas’ Story:
This is what Pocahontas would become if John Smith was killed by Governor Ratcliffe. In a fit of rage , she kills the Governor to avenge John, but she isn’t satisfied. So she goes on a killing spree, ending the life of any and all settlers but it doesn’t fix her broken heart. I really like this picture. These are definitely getting a lot darker. Hope you guys like.
Oh yeah, I should probably explain why I gave her armor. Well, in the movie when the settlers are gearing up to fight Pocahontas’s tribe, Governor Ratcliffe actually puts on a full suit of black armor. In my version, after Pocahontas kills the Governor she takes his armor…so yeah…I’m still up in the air on it but it looks cool.
…also, I thought I would mention that Pocahontas used Flit the hummingbird’s feathers to decorate her spear and belt. It’s kind of hard to tell with the lighting.
Twisted Rapunzel’s Story:
When Rapunzel and Flynn return to the shore after seeing the lanterns, Flynn leaves to go give the crown back to the Stabbington Brothers so he can spend the rest of his life with Rapunzel. Unfortunately, Mother Gothel and the Stabbington Brothers had a different plan. They tie Flynn to a boat with the crown and set him out on the river in direction of the kingdom, knowing that the guards would have him executed upon finding him. The Brothers then approach Rapunzel and inform her that Flynn left with the crown and was only using her. Rapunzel sees Flynn sailing off with the crown and becomes incredibly heartbroken. While in her fragile emotional state, the Stabbington Brothers capture her and take her to Mother Gothel.

As she sings, Mother Gothel informs her that what she did was for the best. And that Flynn the thief deserved his fate. This caused Rapunzel to realize that it was her mother who was behind Flynn’s “sudden change of heart”. Rapunzel became filled with rage and anger and suddenly, Mother Gothel began to scream. Rapunzel’s hair began to suck the life from Mother Gothel’s body. “You did it!” Rapunzel screamed. Mother Gothel pleaded with Rapunzel but she was too consumed by hatred for her “mother” who was responsible for disposing of her true love. Mother Gothel’s body aged quickly and then turned to dust in the curls of Rapunzel’s hair. The twins witnessed this and retrieved their weapons to kill Rapunzel, but it was too late. Her hair wrapped around one of them and drained the life from him. The other twin escaped the tower and ran for his life. Rapunzel pursued him in hopes of getting revenge.

Flynn searched the kingdom for her unaware that she has been consumed by her rage and heartbreak. Will Flynn be able to find Rapunzel and save her from being consumed by the dark…or worse…dun dun dun.
Twisted Tiana’s Story:
After the shadows captured Naveen and returned him to Facilier, Facilier didn’t want to take anymore chances of losing him again so during the Mardi Gras parade he asks his friends on the other side to remove Naveen’s soul and place it in his talisman. With a soul as it’s fuel, the talisman no longer needed to be constantly filled with Naveen’s blood but doing so meant certain death for Naveen. Ray saw this horrible act with his own eyes but knew that there might be hope to save Naveen if they got the talisman to Mama Odie. Ray swiftly stole the talisman from Facilier and flew as fast as he could to Tiana who had run away to the graveyard, having thought that Naveen was marrying Charlotte. Ray finally reached her but wasn’t fast enough to out run the shadows. Tiana tried to help Ray but the shadows overpowered them both. During all of the confusion and scrambling, Tiana managed to get a hold of the talisman. Ray tried to tell her that it contained Naveen’s soul, but he was killed by the shadows before he could. Facilier walked out from amongst the shadows and approached Tiana. He offered her her restaurant if she gave him the talisman back. Tiana refused and threw the talisman on the ground, smashing it, unaware of its contents. Facilier cringed as Naveen’s soul escaped the talisman and began to circle Tiana and eventually went in to her. Tiana dropped to ground. The shadows began to circle Facilier preparing to pounce but then stopped. They began to slither towards Tiana and surround her. Tiana regained consciousness just as the shadows went into her body and let out a blood curdling scream. Facilier stepped back as her body began to change and mutate. It appeared as if she was returning to normal but her human features still retained an amphibian-esque quality to them. She stood up and looked at Facilier. The shadows in her body could be seen wriggling around under her skin. “You!” she said as she pointed at Facilier. “You killed him!” Facilier backed up. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.” he said hesitantly. “Naveen’s soul told me what you did, and you will pay!” she said as she started to walk towards Facilier. He backed up against a grave and once again tried pleading with her. She raised her hand to Facilier “There is no future for you.” Suddenly, a group of shadows burst from Tiana and rushed towards him….
