No happy ending for Disney characters in real world
Girl meets boy. They fall in love. They overcome their hurdles. And then they live happily ever after in their Disney world.
But now, New York-based animation storyboard artist Jeff Hong has plucked these beloved Disney characters out of their perfect little worlds.
Mr Hong has come up with a series of photos called 'Unhappily Ever After' that show the fates of characters like Mulan, Belle and even Winnie the Pooh if they existed in our reality, which has since been affected by social, political and environmental consequences.
Mr Hong told The Huffington Post in an e-mail: "The idea just popped in my head to put Disney princesses into environments that they wouldn't be associated with.
"Once I started putting them together, I realised a lot of social issues that are always important to me could be woven in as well. I think that's what made it really successful and a bit controversial as well, so I'm glad it has started debates and discussions on the issues of racism, animal abuse, drugs etc," added Mr Hong.
