jake.bean 18 Jun 2019

Alright! So now that father's day is behind us, it's time we look at some realistic looking Disney dads! Because you know what they say: you're better late than never!

We'd like to thank the artist jirkavinse for his art today. Go follow him! Now!

Okay, so...

Disney

Today, we're going to look at some of the Disney dads if they lived in real life.

And be warned, some of these Disney dads will make you swoon.

1. Cassim (Animated)

Disney

Okay, so we'll start off our list with the animated version of Aladdin's dad, Cassim.

If you didn't know he had a dad, then you should watch Aladdin and the King of Thieves.

Cassim (Real)

This is the real version of Cassim, and he's rugged yet he has a welcoming look to him.

A perfect choice for a thief, he lures you in with his charm and good looks then WHAM! Your lamp is gone.

2. Father Of Tarzan (Animated)

Disney

On a weird note, I couldn't find a name for this character. Tarzan Sr?

No, because the apes gave him the name Tarzan. Huh... I guess it has to be "Father Of Tarzan", then.

Father Of Tarzan (Real)

Here's his real-life version and he's looking pretty good for a guy who spent a long time in a wild jungle, living off the land and eventually getting eaten by a jaguar.

Uhh... spoiler alert?

3. Chief Powhatan (Animated)

Disney

Ahh, Chief Powhatan. Honestly, I haven't actually seen Pocahontas in a while, so I forget what he was like.

I'm assuming he didn't trust the settlers (as he probably shouldn't have).

Chief Powhatan (Real)

This Chief Powhatan makes me sad.

Just look at his eyes... this is the picture of a man who knows his whole world and view on life is about to be destroyed.

4. Triton (Animated)

Disney

Well, it seems I found one of the only pictures of King Triton where he's smiling because I can't remember him doing a whole lot of that in the movie.

Triton (Real)

That's more like it. He looks stern, he looks kind of pissed off at his daughter, a perfect look for what I assume was supposed to be Posideon.

Oh, speaking of which...

5. Zeus (Animated)

Disney

The God of The Sky, Lightning and the Father of Gods and men. Or, in this case, just the father of young Hercules.

Minus all the cheating on Hera, that wouldn't be kid-friendly.

Zeus (Real)

Wow!

Now I know it's based off the fun-loving, happy go lucky Disney version of Zeus, but it's hard to see a realistic version of the god where he's smiling. Just... feels weird.

6. Claude Frollo (Animated)

Disney

Alright, so I know he wasn't an actual father to anyone, but he was sort of a father figure to Quasimodo... right?

An evil father figure? Alright cut me some slack, I was pushing it with the Mufasa thing.

Claude Frollo (Real)

Wow... somehow he even looks scarier than the animated version.

Wouldn't want this guy judging your trial, that's for sure.

7. Prince Florian (Animated)

Disney

We’ve got to assume a lot of these Disney guys grew up with their respective princesses and had babies… right? Alright, let’s do that. Here is Prince Florian, Snow White’s boo.

Prince Florian (Real)

And boy, does he look like a fresh faced boy-toy in this one. Seriously, this guy looks like he could be the lead singer of a boy band. Ooh, Disney, do we have a potential Disney channel show here?

Load Comments

8. Prince Charming (Animated)

Disney

So right now we’re going to take a look at Cinderella’s husband, or at least the guy she got with at the end of her movie. We can only assume they had babies together and treated them a lot better.

Load Comments

Prince Charming (Real)

Much in the same vein as our boy Prince Florian up there, he’s straight cut but he looks like a darn fine young man. Definitely the sensitive one in Florian’s eventual boy band.

9. Prince Eric (Animated)

Disney

We don’t have to speculate here folks, we know that Ariel and Eric had a daughter. Don’t believe me? It’s canon, baby. Check out The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea

Load Comments

Prince Eric (Real)

Hey, wait a minute... ever notice how Disney has a bunch of black-haired Princes? Anyways, look at this once again clean cut, fresh-faced and of course, black haired gentlemen.

10. Captain LiShang (Animated)

Disney

Alright, I know I'm doing a lot of assuming here, but unfortunately, there aren't a lot of Disney dads drawn in real life. So here we are, talking about potential LiShang and Mulan babies.

Load Comments

Captain LiShang (Real)

And god, if he looked like that how could you avoid having babies with this guy? He's chiseled, he's stoic and... wait a minute, he has black hair!

11. Mufasa (Animated)

Disney

Ahh yes, one of the best Disney dads. Also one of the saddest Disney moments.

You're just up there in the "best of all time" Disney ranks, aren't you Mufasa?

Mufasa (Real)

Disney

Okay, so this is a cop-out entry but it still counts!

Once again, we'd like to thank the artist jirkavinse for his art. Did you follow him? Well, go do it!
