Artist Reimagines Keanu Reeves As All The Disney Princes
Keanu Reeves has been absolutely everywhere recently thanks to the release the eagerly anticipated John Wick 3, and now he’s even made a cameo in some of our favourite Disney classics.
Earlier this week, writer and artist Crystal Ro revealed her illustrations of Keanu as a variety of different Disney princes, and they’re all kinds of incredible.
Ro, who works for Buzzfeed, initially drew the illustrations for their site, but later shared them to her own Instagram, because why the hell wouldn’t you want to show off such masterpieces?
Sharing the images, she told her followers ‘I drew Keanu as Disney princes because it felt right,’ and in all honesty, we can completely understand where she’s coming home.
The illustrations show the Matrix star in a number of different classic films, from Snow White and Cinderella, to The Princess and the Frog, Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast.
Ro also depicted Keanu as the love interest in other films like Pocahontas, Mulan, Sleeping Beauty and The Little Mermaid, which would be pretty handy if the actor ever fancied a role in any of Disney’s live-action remakes.
Keanu made the headlines earlier this week when it was revealed he’s in talks to join Marvel Cinematic Universe.
MCU boss man Kevin Feige has been doing the press rounds to promote the upcoming Spider-Man film, but thankfully revealed a few extra tidbits to ComicBook about the future of the franchise.
When asked about bringing Keanu into the fray, Feige told ComicBook:
We talk to him for almost every film we make. We talk to Keanu Reeves about… I don’t know when, if, or ever he’ll join the MCU, but we very much want to figure out the right way to do it.
Feige compared Reeves to Jake Gyllenhaal – who is playing Mysterio in Spider-Man: Far From Home – saying they’ve talked to the actor ‘multiple times’ but have wanted to wait until they find the perfect role for him.
Let’s see if Disney want to nab him up too after seeing how well he suits playing a Disney prince – Marvel could have a bidding war on its hands.
