UK-based graphic artist Tom Ward has a lot to say about the current state of the world, and he's using the help of everyone's favorite Disney characters to do it.

In a new series of drawings Ward has dubbed "Alt Disney," he connects the storylines of several classic Disney movies to modern social issues, creating a dark but intriguing look at reality through the eyes of popular characters from our childhood. The creative drawings provide powerful commentary on water pollution, animal abuse, obsession with technology, pop culture, and a range of other subjects as if to point out that although the world of Disney classics is full of magic and happy endings, the world we live in has serious problems that must be discussed.

See how Disney's most beloved faces and iconic movies might have turned out if they were made in 2017 below and vote for the ones that are just too real.

Rainbows flag = gay pride. In the new Beauty and the Beast film, LeFou is established as having unrequited love for Gaston. It's mutual here

Never thought of Gaston being gay. Narcissistic and full of his own BS sure, but not all Gay men/straight men are that either. But whatever..this isn't my work. LeFou I know is gay because of the live action version.

I was like, let's see when are we going to receive our little injection of gay propaganda... Well, as soon as the SECOND picture. We did'nt have to wait too long. I'm relieved.

Can we please, just for a change, have just one day with no gay propaganda? I am really sick of all that gay propaganda showing from literally everywhere.

A lot of hope in this scene. It does represent reality quite well.

And then Jasmine would get sick of it and force Genie to make the house perpetually clean, and then buy a third gaming controller.
