With so many of Disney's animated classics gaining live-action remakes lately, it's normal for fans to wonder which actors or actresses could play the most famous characters from our childhood. Therefore, Filipino artist André Manguba, who is a big fan of Disney, decided to create a series of illustrations that depict our favorite celebrities as Disney characters, and the result is incredible!
André Manguba is a 20-year-old self-taught visual artist currently residing and working in Manila. He is best known for his extremely realistic portraits, however, he also has many illustrative projects. "I always try to challenge myself with out-of-the-box ideas or concepts that break out of the usual look of a portrait drawing. So as much as possible, I don’t only draw faces, I add more elements to it to make the portrait more interesting," said the artist to Bored Panda.
With this project, he brings Disney characters to life by imagining them as pop culture celebrities. "I’m a huge pop culture and Disney fan just like many of my followers. So the idea of recreating iconic Disney characters through my favorite celebrities got me pumped. One of my favorite Disney art series is that of my Riverdale x Disney crossover because of how perfect the combinations are. I also got a lot of positive feedback from it and I enjoyed the entire creative process which made me continue the concept on my next drawings," explained the artist. He has more than 233k followers on his Instagram account who are always waiting for his new creations, so we are sure that you will enjoy his artwork too!
