Artist Reimagines Keanu Reeves As 9 Disney Princes, Absolutely Nails It

We’ve already shown you artists transforming Disney characters into real people, so what do you say we change things up a bit? I’m talking about actual folks entering the Disney universe, and who deserves this great honor more if not Keanu Reeves himself? LA-based writer and illustrator Crystal Ro has created a series featuring the 54-year-old actor as princes from some of the best movies the studio has released, and people are here for it.

“Other than the obvious — that Keanu is hot — I’ve been a fan for a long time. I’m an ’80s kid, so I grew up knowing him best as Ted from Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure — and I’ll never NOT hear his voice that way.”

“I like that Keanu has had an interesting career, going from playing kind of ditzy surfer dude types to action heroes, romantic leads, and hitmen more recently,” Crystal said. “The amazing thing is people love him in every one of these roles and that’s a rare thing in Hollywood.”

“I think Disney and Keanu blend so well because, currently, he’s having a big “the Internet’s boyfriend” moment. And who else the Internet loves? Disney princes (and princesses).”
