If there're two things that have proved to be absolute gold at the box office over the past two decades it's dinosaurs and Disney. While Frozen's success at the box office has continued to snowball, earning over $1 billion, the newly released Jurassic World just made history for the best opening weekend at the box office of all time. With the success of both themes, it seems like the next obvious step should be to splice the two together, and fill in the sequence gaps to create a Dino-Disney hybrid, which thankfully someone has stepped up to do!
In order to celebrate the release of Jurassic World, artist Laura Cooper, created possibly the best fan art of all time by turning our our favorite Disney princesses in Velociraptors! Laura firmly believes "a princess is many things, and a raptor is one of them," and I have to say, after seeing her artwork, I'm totally convinced!
Take a look at Laura's collection of Disney Princesses as raptors (or check out more of her work over here) and try and tell me by the end of the article that you don't want a Disney raptor princess - I know I'm convinced:
Tiana has a whole new lease on life as this dainty looking raptor, though unfortunately for Dr. Facilier he wasn't able to replicate Dr. Alan Grant's lucky escape.
Something tells me that Cinderaptor's fairy Godmother had a horrible time trying to create a pair of glass slippers for those claws!
While I can't help but feel glad that Ursula is meeting a horrible end, my eyes are drawn to Flounder's lifeless body and Sebastian's lone remaining claw...What have you done Ariaptor?!
Raptanna and Velsaraptor
Velociraptors are pack hunters, so I bet that these two made pretty short work out of Olaf and Sven with their coordinated attack patterns.
With a reinvention of the song title to "A Whole New Jurassic World" it really brings new meaning to the lyrics "a thrilling chase, a wondrous place!" And with a raptor reaching speeds of 60 mph as well as being astonishing jumpers, I'm not even sure a magic carpet would be a safe place to hide!
Much like Merida, raptors are brilliant hunters, though in her new form she might prefer to sacrifice her arrows in favor of those six-inch retractable claws!
Unlike for the Chinese Army in Mulan, these clever girls don't need to disguise themselves as boys to fight!
Sleeping Raptor has no time to admire the Flora and Fauna, let alone the Merryweather...
Imagine seeing clouds of silky blonde hair and then the cheeky face of a hungry raptor turning around before it's claws slash across your belly? Talk about mesmerizing!
The Queen better watch out, because Snow Raptor definitely isn't wasting any time eating apples!
Raptor and the Beast
Can you imagine Belle the raptor trapped in a castle with the beast?! Now that's a battle I'd pay to see!
Poor Meeko and Flit never stood a chance, and sadly I don't hold much hope that the grinning bobcat survived either.
