These Gender-Bending Disney Characters Will Make You Rethink Those Childhood Classics

Posted: Updated:

A Canadian digital artist decided to change up some classic Disney characters.

Sakimi Chan put a gender-bending spin on some of the most familiar faces we grew up watching, and the marvelous results will make you rethink those Disney stories: What would "Beauty and the Beast" have been like if the beast were female? Or what if "101 Dalmatians" villain Cruella de Vil were a well-dressed man?
