Have you ever wondered what Simba or Nala may look like in human form? It’s a weird concept but 24-year-old animator Pugletto has created beautiful images of famous Disney animals reimagined as humans.
‘I just got really frustrated about the amount of Simbas with white skin and flowing red hair,’ Pugletto told Cosmopolitan.com. ‘The way I see it, is The Lion King is a story that takes place in Africa… [so] I reimagined the characters as humans the way they would look if they were from Africa.’ She then got inspired to recreate other Disney animals too – especially those with ethnic backgrounds. We think she’s done a brilliant job!
