Belle From Beauty and the Beast Before

Belle from Beauty and the Beast

I always felt it was fitting that her name is Belle, because she is so beautiful. Belle was GOALS when I was a kid.

Belle From Beauty and the Beast After

Belle

Tale as old as time, Belle looks super fine.

Prince Adam (AKA Beast) From Beauty and the Beast Before

Prince Adam

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that Beast was a human and that his 2-D human form was pretty easy on the eyes. But wait ’til you see this next photo.

Prince Adam (AKA Beast) From Beauty and the Beast After

Prince Adam

I see no Beast in this photo; only BEAUTY!

Gaston From Beauty and the Beast Before

Gaston

Gaston has always been ‘swole.’ His jawline has always looked like it could cut diamonds! And yes – I am aware his looks don’t match his ugly insides.

Gaston From Beauty and the Beast After

Gaston

No one doesn’t have a physical flaw like Gaston, no one has a jaw like Gaston…

Moana From Moana Before

Moana

Moana’s brows are always on fleek, and it makes me jealous!

Moana From Moana After

GLOWING. RADIANT. EYEBROWS STILL ON FLEEK.

Ariel From The Little Mermaid Before

Ariel

Ariel’s fiery red hair started a trend for hipster girls everywhere, and we salute her for it!

Ariel From The Little Mermaid After

Ariel

We know plenty of people who would want her to be part of their world. Stunning in 2-D and 3-D? Both with a tail? No fair!

Prince Eric From The Little Mermaid Before

Prince Eric

Prince Eric has always been a stud. That perfect hair…swoon.

Prince Eric From The Little Mermaid After

OKAY ERIC, I SEE YOU. He went from perfect hair in 2-D, to perfectly tousled in 3-D.

Ursula From The Little Mermaid After

Ursula

I know what you’re all thinking – Ursula? Bear with me, it’s worth it.

Ursula From The Little Mermaid After

YAS QUEEN! Ursula’s vintage vibe with her red lips and nails seriously slays.

Princess Jasmine From Aladdin Before

Princess Jasmine From Aladdin After

Jasmine

Ugh, Jasmine, you are perfect. Don’t change a thing about yourself. Still an icon.

Aladdin From Aladdin Before

Alladin

Aladdin wasn’t afraid to rock a vest without a shirt. That gave him a certain level of rebellious hotness. Can you handle it in 3-D?

Aladdin From Aladdin After

Alladin

Aladdin’s open-vest look has certainly reached a whole new level… or world. Yes – I had to.

Is it me, or does he look kind of like Jake Gyllenhaal?

Jafar From Aladdin Before

OK, maybe just a little in love.

Megara From Hercules Before

Meg doesn’t need muscles – her strength is her beauty and the ability to perfectly match her eyeshadow to her dress.

Megara From Hercules After

Megara

Talk about a goddess! I would let her throw shade at me any day!

Hades From Hercules Before

Okay, Hades! I am here for these punk rock vibes. Doesn’t he look like he should be on tour with Twenty One Pilots?

Prince Naveen From The Princess and the Frog Before

Prince Naveen

I kinda understand why Naveen believed all women became putty when they saw him… I mean, look at him.

Prince Naveen From The Princess And The Frog After

Prince Naveen
