Will mashing up Disney Princesses with other pop culture icons ever get old? I submit to you that it will not. San Francisco illustrator Diego Gómez recently recast some of Disney's…
Illustrator Ralph Sevelius created his Disney Princesses/Star Wars mashups as a bit of whimsical fun more than two years ago to celebrate the purchase of Lucasfilms by Disney. They were moderately popular on social media at the time, but with the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, they are suddenly more relevant than ever.
There usually isn’t a ton of overlap between Disney princess fans and superhero fans. The culture of each fanbase is quite different and they tend to attract different types of people. But DeviantArt user Micah Graham (a.k.a. MuiMushroom) saw princess and superheroes as two great tastes that taste great together and made these brilliant Disney/Justice League mashups.
I was just thinking that it would be a fun crossover to do, it started out as just a discussion with my brother, “If the princesses were super-hero’s who would they be?” That sort of thing, and we began matching them up. It was just a fun little thing to get ready for Comic-con, and it was a lot of fun designing the costumes.
