The Disney princesses usually steal the show and command all of the attention. However, each film contains a slew of memorable people that deserve to be recognized since the story would be incomplete without them. HatterpillarArts, an artist, gives the well-deserved limelight to the charming sidekicks who accompany the starring women on their adventures. She gave Mushu, Pascal, Olaf, Rajah, and other classic Disney sidekicks princess makeovers and reinvented them as major characters in respective films.
“The idea came about when I was watching Mulan, and I just started thinking about how funny it would be if Mushu was dressed up as Mulan with the fan and the flower in his hair and everything. I then just decided to give drawing it a go, it came out really well, I posted it to Reddit and people loved it, so I did some more princess/sidekick mash-ups that were requested. I am actually planning on continuing the project soon and doing a few more!”
Here are some of the cutest Disney mashups she’s created thus far. Who is your favorite sidekick, and who would you like to see on this list?

11The artist already has a lot more planned for the Disney series and other artwork in the nearest future.
“Other characters I have planned are Merida (Brave), Megara (Hercules), Giselle (Enchanted), and Snow White. After I’ve run out of princesses, I will hopefully be doing the same kind of thing with princes and villains because I think that’ll be super fun. My future art will also consist of a lot more of my other ongoing project, the Pokemon project, and also I would really love to be posting more of my original work in the next year or so. Hopefully, people like it!”
