We Used AI To Show What Disney Princesses Would Look Like In Real Life, And Snow White Is Kind Of Creepy

Snow White's eyes are looking into my soul.

Hello! My name is Hannah, and I grew up wishing I was a Disney princess. Or at least, living in the world of a Disney movie.

But unfortunately, my life is not animated. And rather than try to animate everything around me, I decided it might be fun to try un-animating stuff from the Disney-verse. In this case, Disney princesses!

I worked with a ~fancy AI~ (Artbreeder) to generate the portraits — if you're curious to see what the computer and I came up with together, read on!

First up, we've got my fave Disney princess: Rapunzel. Here she is in Tangled.
