We all love Disney animations because they bring a smile to our faces, light up our daily lives and inspire us to overcome any problems we might have. However, have you ever wondered what these cartoons would look like if some of the fantasy were to be replaced with a healthy dose of reality?

Artist Santiago Esparza, who goes by the moniker Sanesparza, made a series of hilarious comics about what Disney animations would be like if the movies were realistic. These are sure to have you in stitches as you rethink everything you thought you knew about some of your favorite films. Be warned — your rose-colored glasses might just fall off. Remember to upvote your fave comics and let us know in the comments below why you liked them.

Thank you this one always bugged me as a kid watching this movie. Why not let Jasmine have some wishes? I didn’t see the recent live action remake so I don’t know if they addressed this or if it is still a plot hole

Bored Panda reached out to Santiago to better understand his motivation behind the funny — and sometimes even shocking — realistic Disney comics.

“My inspiration for this series is my love for these movies, some of them are my favorite,” the artist explained the inspiration behind the series to Bored Panda. “So I like to think that I make fun of these movies, but out of love, that’s probably why it connects with so many people. They don’t see it as a critique, they just want to laugh about the movies we all know and love.”

Santiago also added that he usually draws the comics in chronological order, however, “for this second season of ‘If Disney movies were realistic’ I’m taking more liberties.”

Sanesparza has been drawing for a long time. Ever since he was a child, in fact: “Disney and Pixar were definitely the main reasons why I started drawing and liking movies in general, so I guess you could say everything’s coming full circle.

“I make stories myself. Maybe in the future, people can make fun of them the same way I make fun of movies,” Santiago mentioned his other comics called Virgin Institute and Everything About You.

While on the topic of realism in Disney movies, the company has recently begun a whole series of projects to recreate classic beloved cartoons as live-action versions. Be sure to read Bored Panda’s posts about an alternate look for The Lion King remake and about Bahati, the lion cub who was the inspiration behind Simba.
