Graphic designer gives Disney Princesses real-life ambitions

Disney princesses can be more than just pretty faces wearing fancy dresses. In fact, they can be whatever they want to be, thanks to the musings of a graphic designer.

According to PopSugar, graphic designer for Simple Thrifty Living Matt Burt decided to give the host of princesses new identities, envisioning them as “empowered boss ladies with successful careers in male-dominated fields.”

In his new depictions, Burt transforms Disney favorites Anna and Elsa into climate change scientists who have “dedicated their careers to studying climate change and presenting accurate, well-sourced information,” says PopSugar, while Belle becomes a university chancellor, thanks to her love of reading — oh, and a doctorate degree.

Other storied princesses were imagined as an animal rights activist (Cinderella), a UN ambassador (Jasmine), a Navy officer (Moana) and even a Title IX lawyer (Mulan).

In short, these ladies are getting down to business to defeat the patriarchy and show that they are much more than just dignitaries.
