Plenty of little boys and girls wanted to grow up to be their favorite Disney character, but very rarely does that actually work out (you know, unless you’re Kate Middleton). Some people just move on from that childhood dream while others choose to go and work in a Disney theme park where props and costumes help them out a great deal.
Every once in a while though, someone grows up to naturally look like someone from Disney (regardless of whether or not they wanted to). Here’s a collection of 25 of those people:
25 Disney Character Lookalikes
This Ukrainian judge who’s a dead ringer for Ursula from The Little Mermaid
I wonder if her lipstick comes in a seashell too…
This elderly gentleman who looks just like Carl from Up
(Disney owns Pixar now, so it totally counts)
This dude and Linguine from Ratatouille
This adorable kid and Russell from Up
They even have matching badges!
Khal Drago – Formerly of Game of Thrones fame – and Scar from The Lion King
They may not be the same species, but they most certainly share the same scowl.
Nicki Minaj and Mrs. Potato Head from Toy Story
Even their lips match!
This girl and Flash from Zootopia
Jean Sarkozy (the son of the former French president) and Prince Adam from Beauty and the Beast
He even has the same haircut.
This kid and Hiro Hamada from Big Hero 6
Yes I’m aware that he’s wearing a wig, but you’ve gotta admit that his face is strikingly similar too.
This young girl and Merida from Brave
I think it’s fun to imagine that the gitl is longing for her bow and arrow too.
Lisa Edelstein (most commonly known as Dr. Cuddy on House) and Mother Gothel from Tangled
If ever there is a live action Rapunzel movie, I’ll be very disappointed if they don’t at least offer Edelstein the role.
Steve Harvey and Mr. Potato Head from Toy Story
I have to admit, it’s a little eerie to me how similar those smiles are.
This teenager and Mary Katherine from Epic
She very well may be the inspiration behind the character by the look of it.
This kid and Andy from Toy Story
It was worth waiting three installments to see Andy’s face, if only for this comparison photo.
Queen Beatrix (of the Netherlands) and Merriweather from Sleeping Beauty
So what if the comparison is based solely on the headwrap? It’s exactly the same.
These silly dogs and the hyenas from The Lion King
Chris Hemsworth from Thor and John Smith from Pocahontas
They clearly frequent the same barber shop.
Wilford Brimley and the King from Cinderella
The King may not have diabetes like his Liberty Mutual Insurance counterpart, but he’s certainly got the same handlebar mustache and scowl.
This girl and Elsa from Frozen
She doesn’t have the platinum hair, but she definitely has the facial expressions.
This boxer and Quasimodo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame
The puffy eye is probably temporary, but he’s still got enough likeness without it.
This woman and Cruella De Ville from 101 Dalmatians
I just really hope that they don’t share the same hobbies…
Danny DeVito and Philoctetes from Hercules
DeVito did do the voice-over for Phil, so perhaps they used him as inspiration. Still counts.
Prince and Jafar from Aladdin
Their personalities couldn’t be any different, but their facial similarities are definitely there.
Joe Jonas and Aladdin from Aladdin
They’re both singers too!
This fox and rabbit and Nick Wilde and Bunny Hops from Zootopia
Just pretend that the two in the first picture get along as well as the latter pair do.
As you can see, there’s plenty of Disney magic left in the real world, you just need to know where to look for it.
