If I was a Disney Princess I think I would be Jasmine. If Daeneris Targaryen was a Disney Princess she would be Elsa from Frozen. Because I’m not famous enough (yet?), nobody bothers Photoshopping Jasmine’s head on my body, but Gregory Masouras has done just that with Game of Thrones characters. His work is presented below, with a rating of how close his assessment hits to home.
1. Elsa as Daenerys Targaryen
Badass ruler of everything and badass ruler of cold and ice and everything. Seems like a pretty spot-on observation. This one gets a 10/10!
2. Rapunzel as Sansa Stark
Sansa has really gone through quite a transformation in the world of Game of Thrones. Rapunzel, too, went through quite a transformation, however not as much. Save for the lovely hair, I don’t feel like these have enough in common. 5/10
3. Belle as Margaery Tyrell
A 100% 10/10 rating for this one!
4. Merida as Ygritte
Red hair. Incredible skills with a bow and arrow. Always being in complete control of the situation, no matter what? Yeah, this is incredibly spot-on! 10/10
5. Jasmine as Ellaria Sand
Jasmine is my favorite Disney princess (for obvious reasons), and Ellaria Sand is my least favorite character in Game of Thrones. Based on personal feelings about this matter alone, I would give this a 3/10 rating, but Masouras is also kind of right in his work. Objectively, this is a 7/10 observation on his part.
6. Aurora as Cersei Lannister
Evil stepmother that tries to control everything, but fails miserably from time to time. SOLID. 10/10
7. Grandmother Fa as Olena Tyrell
Mulan’s grandmother was always full of joy and wisdom, and so too, Olena Tyrell seems to have a lot of wisdom. Great observation! 8/10
8. Queen Elinor as Catelyn Stark
I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that Brave is Gregory Masouras’s favorite Disney/Pixar film, because every character he chooses to compare to Game of Thrones is a 10/10. Loving mother that puts her family before all else? True for both Elinor and Catelyn.
9. Mulan as Arya Stark
Small, seemingly weak underdog who manages to take complete control of her life to become a powerful, clever, brave warrior? Check, check, check, check! 10/10
10. Pocahontas as Missandei
I have no opinion on this matter. Pocahontas is my least favorite Disney film and I’ve never really paid much attention to Missandei’s story. No rating for this one. I’m going to leave it up to you. Please let me know what you think in the comments!
11. Ariel as Yara Greyjoy
Gregory was very clever with placing this character in the water. It immediately gave me the impression that this was a solid comparison. However, having thought about it a little more, I have to ask, is Yara Greyjoy really the type of character that would sacrifice all she has to be with the love of her life?
12. Mother Gothel as Melisandre
Evil old character that manages to manipulate everyone around them to get what they want? Yup, this is true for both Gothel and Melisandre.
13. Snow White as Shae
I don’t remember Shae being asleep for most of Game of Thrones. However, if you count being dead as being asleep, any character in Game of Thrones has the potential to be compared to Snow White. I’ll give this a 6/10
14. Cinderella as Brienne of Tarth
Brienne is a powerful warrior that doesn’t take any crap from anybody. She is loyal, she is brave, and she gets things done when the going gets tough. Not sure I can say the same for Cinderella, but I guess Gregory knows best. 7/10
15. Meera Reed as Jane
I don’t know if Jane can actually be considered a Disney princess. I mean, I know she was the female lead in Tarzan, but in my opinion the true meaning of Disney princess is when she’s the main character of her own story. I feel like we didn’t see enough character development in Jane to be able to form a solid opinion on this.
16. Tiana as Osha and Meera Reed as Jane
Again, the choice of Jane seems questionable to me, but Osha and Tiana is a solid comparison! 10/10 for Osha and ?/10 for Jane!
