Who doesn’t love a Disney love story?
Disney Princesses. We grew up watching them. Envying their hair, wardrobes and affinity to animals.
We also have to admit that their fairytale romances are pretty much responsible for our entirely unrealistic relationship goals. It’s all about the story book romance.
Everyone had their favourite Prince (team Beast FTW).
But now, thanks to Tumblr user Dopey Beauty, we’ve had a glimpse at what could have happened if the Disney characters had collided into each other’s stories. And we love what we see.
The Tale Of Pocahontas and Aurora
Instead of the legendary John Smith, Aurora washed up on Pocahontas’ land. They went on a beautiful journey of exploration together, kicked some Kocoum butt and fell in love.
Ariel And Jasmine
Both adventure seekers who weren’t fulfilled with their own sheltered lives, Jasmine and Ariel made the perfect match. Makes complete sense when you think about it…
Prince Eric, who?
Aladdin And Hercules
Hercules still goes on his journey to discover himself, but he comes back to his childhood sweetheart Aladdin in the end…
We hope this is the start of something magical. Hopefully it won’t be long before we see our first LGBT coupling on the Disney big screen.
Speaking to Buzzfeed, the genius behind these mini movies revealed the inspiration behind the idea: “I remembered a 1999 episode of Hercules: The Animated Series where Hercules and Aladdin meet and thought about how it would be interesting to put them together as a couple! I also thought it would be a good challenge to try to edit it and I had a lot of fun doing it.”

After receiving an overwhelming response to the GIFs, she said: ““One person even told they got emotional looking at them, because Disney is so important to them and they’d love to see something similar produced by Disney themselves! I hadn’t even considered that reaction when editing them (I was just doing it for fun) but it was so lovely to hear how many people were moved by them.”
