Following Into the Woods and Maleficent, the live action version of [Cinderella](movie:373064) will be hitting screens later this year. Given the success of these movies, it seems like it could be the beginning of many of our favorite Disney fairy tales being turned into live action spectaculars, and to be honest I'm not complaining!

There are so many talented actors out there who would be fantastic in the roles made iconic by Disney that it's quite fun to think about who might be best suited to play which character.

Thomas Kurniawan, an artist from Indonesia, has obviously been asking himself the same question, and has taken it upon himself to photoshop a number of our fave stars in as the live action versions of our animated stars. Take a look at his work below and see what you think:

1. Angelina Jolie as Elsa from Frozen

She's already played the villainous role of Maleficent, but don't tell me that you couldn't imagine Angelina Jolie as regal Queen Elsa!

However, on the odd chance you don't agree, perhaps the next casting will sit better with you:

2. Scarlett Johansson as Elsa in Frozen

She's got the look and I think she could definitely pull off the Elsa sass! Which one of these ice queens has the vocal talents to pull THIS off?

3. Melissa Benoist as Anna in Frozen

This young Glee star has already proved she can sing, and she looks the part, could she be live action Anna?

4. Emma Watson and Henry Cavill as Ariel and Eric in The Little Mermaid

Hermione Granger and Superman as Ariel and Prince Eric? It might just be crazy enough to work!

5. Taylor Swift in Cinderella

Of course Lily James will be starring as Cinderella in this year's release, however if there was going to be a runner up Cinderella I'm sure Taylor Swift would be it.

6. Amanda Seyfried as Merida in Brave

The beautiful Amanda Seyfried looks great as this Scottish princess.

7. Hayden Panettiere in Rapunzel

From her time on [Nashville](series:720991) we already know Hayden Panettiere has a great singing voice, coupled with her blonde locks we have a very fitting Rapunzel on our hands.

8. Naya Rivera in Pocahontas

Yet another Glee star who could pull of the Disney look with ease.

9. Gal Gadot as Jasmine in Aladdin

Gal Gadot might already be set to play Wonder Woman, but Jasmine would be another role she could fit right into.

10. Tang Wei in Mulan

You may not have seen many of the films that gorgeous Chinese actress Tang Wei has appeared in, but you gotta agree, she looks like she would make a bad-ass Fa Mulan.

11. Lily Collins as Belle in Beauty and the Beast

Lily Collins already appeared in [Mirror, Mirror](movie:255626) as Snow White, but there's no reason why she couldn't take on Belle as well!

12. Dianna Agron as Aurora in Sleeping Beauty

Glee star Dianna Agron would be wonderful as Aurora...Even if she does spend most of the film sleeping!

13. Katy Perry in Snow White

Katy's porcelain skin and black hair could make her Snow White's twin!

14. Lion as Simba in The Lion King

Couldn't resist this one!


Do you think these actresses are good choices for the roles?
