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.

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.

Yes, that's accurate and not the least bit scandalous.

Jasmine should just fly away on Carpet and leave them to it

Jasmine's the only princess whose wealth is emphasized. She's basically a Kardashian. If anything, Aladdin and Genie would be doing the same thing they are now, but Jasmine would be chillin' in sweats (with her face beat for the gods) surfing Instagram in a big comfy arm chair.

no more like the homeless alladin would be still on the street begging for money never even having interacted with jasmine. Theyre the rulers BTW why would she be doing any cleaning you know the concept of maids right? sultans have them.

There actually was this one episode of the TV series where Genie introduced these two daredevil kids to video games because they're a lot safer than putting themselves in real life danger. Also when you think about it, isn't Jasmine basically pleasuring Carpet there?

This does not represent 2017, sorry. Women have made too many strides to put up with this.

Then she strapped the vacuum to the carpet and flew away like a cat with her ass... uh, excuse me Caliph.

This would never happen. Jasmine had too much class and was too proud to put up with their BS!

This is sexist. This 2017 - not all men play around and make their wives do the house work - they pitch in now!

We have more slacker dudes than we had 100 years ago. Though I don't buy that she would vacuum. She is a princess and they have a GENIE! Why would anybody be doing housework?

Uh. What? They're royalty, they pay someone to do that. Is this a jab at their race?

But no, not at all. Jasmin would just wear a niqab, and stab people in the street, shouting "Allahu Akbar"...

Real life would be even harder. Jasmin would wear a black bin bag, covering her whole face while getting beaten up 24/7. Or she just would getting stoned for showing her hair.
