If there are two things Walt Disney Studio fans love, it’s Johnny Depp and Disney Princesses. But what about combining the two entities into one? Could that be a blockbuster phenomenon or an embarrassing failure for the Walt Disney Company?
Most people have probably given little thought to the idea of the Pirates of the Caribbean star donning Cinderella’s dress or putting on Elsa’s crown.
But someone did.
A digital creator (@the_ai_dreams) has created shared what this concept could look like on multiple social media platforms.
Although currently, there are no scheduled films in production where Fantastic Beasts star Johnny Depp is being cast as a Disney Princess, it still provides some interesting concepts to chew on.
The Walt Disney Company has never shied away from controversial casting choices, and despite the back and forth over Disney dropping Johnny Depp as their signature pirate, he has a long relationship with the company.
The first princess we’ll look at is Belle from Beauty and the Beast. In this artificial intelligent artwork, Johnny Depp wears a gold dress inspired by the gown from the live-action film. He also holds the enchanted rose in his right hand.
The next one on this list is Johnny Depp as Rapunzel from Tangled. Although his hair isn’t as long as in the animated version, it’s colored blond, and he wears a lavender dress.
Interestingly enough, this artwork has Depp with a rugged vest, similar to something you’d see Captain Jack Sparrow or even Flynn Rider wear.
This AI image of Johnny Depp as the original Disney Princess shows the actor with hair black as night. He also holds a poisonous red apple in his hand.
Although not the most feminine outfit of this collection, it may make you wonder if he would be a less controversial choice than Rachel Zegler.
In a light blue classic gown is Johnny Depp as Cinderella. Wearing a dress not unlike those you may find at the Bibbidi Bobbidi boutique, the classic actor interestingly has no glass slipper in this image.
This interesting image shows Johnny Depp appearing more like Aquaman than anything resembling the little mermaid. The only similarity is the red flowing hair and the sea life in the background.
Maybe Amber Heard froze his heart? This image of Johnny Depp as Elsa makes him appear more dashing than dangerous. The white fur and ice-themed accents signal pure royalty.
Another interesting image created by artificial intelligence is this version of Tiana. It’s puzzling as to why he’s wearing glasses, since that’s not a standard look for Princess Tiana.
Yes, I know she’s not an actual Disney Princess. But this image screams Never Land and is worth showing. Although he looks more like Peter Pan with wings, it’s another interesting “reimagining.”
