We all know these Disney ladies have a lot of positive traits, but are they badass enough to survive the apocalypse? With some awesome gear and combat boots, artist Kasami-Sensei decided they most definitely can and proved it by merging their world with The Walking Dead.
It might seem atypical to pick a group of girls averaging around the age of 17 to bear the responsibility of annihilating zombies, but they've faced impossible challenges before! While this artwork might have started as just a fun concept, I think we owe it to Kasami-Sensei and the Disney princesses to truly answer the question: who do you want on your team when the Zombie Apocalypse takes place?
Elsa & Anna
Pros: This quirky duo could be an obvious choice. With Elsa’s killer power, she could easily freeze all the zombies before you can say "let it go." You will never feel unsafe with the Snow Queen on your side. On top of that with Elsa you get Anna; and who could be more adorable and fun to spend the apocalypse with?
Cons: Elsa is still not completely in control of her power. Sure, by the end of the story she discovers that love, not fear, will favor her gift but are you willing to trust that just yet? What if she is sad? What if she gets angry? She might end up freezing her squad or even worse, the entire land. That would make harvesting or finding any food a bit difficult. Also, Elsa bails when things get difficult and hides in her icy castle and Anna will surely follow because… sisterhood.
Pros: The little mermaid can be pretty handy when it comes to finding a good use for scraps. We are talking about a girl who used a fork to comb her hair. You want that kind of crafty mentality on your side.
Cons: She has terrible sidekicks that would only be good for a surf and turf dinner. On top of that, she is prone to drama and then suddenly signing a deal with the devil and screwing you over. Even if this girl has got Triton and some other mermen on her side, she just might not be worth the effort.
Pros: This gypsy is a total trickster. She is quick and loyal and knows how to create a lot of diversions. She also knows clever ways to hide which will come in handy when the zombies come in big groups.
Cons: She doesn’t have many combat skills and doesn't know her way around a gun. She is also a little too proud and might not follow orders because she is used to dealing with things in her own way.
Lilo & Nani
Pros: Neither of them take crap from anyone. Nani will surely tell you what’s what when it all goes down, and Lilo will bite whoever is being a pain. They also have a super strong alien as their pet. Do you need anything else?
Cons: Sister bickering will soon become obnoxious. Lilo doesn’t really do anything Nani tells her to do. It might be partly Stitch’s fault for always causing a riot, but the last thing you need is family drama when trying to stay quiet and hide. Talk about awkward.
Pros: This princess would be my pick. She is a survivalist. When society breaks down, Pocahontas will know how to harvest the land and develop a peaceful community that might bring hope to a new civilization.
Cons: She will probably go behind your back and befriend the enemy. In turn many will die and she will fall in love with one of the walkers and it’s Warm Bodies all over again—and nobody needs that shit.
Pros: She might not seem very helpful, but Jasmine thrives most under pressure. She is a team player and knows how to follow a plan. You’re going to want someone who is in sync with you, someone who knows what needs to be done before you have to say it, and Jasmine is the right gal for that. She is also friends with a freaking tiger!
Cons: Being sheltered and conceited won’t help Jasmine be street smart. She whines too much about problems that don’t matter and she might find it hard to adapt to a life without luxury.
Pros: Resourceful and courageous are a few ways to describe Rapunzel. She is hands on about any situation even if it is something she has not dealt with before. She is also persuasive with humans and animals alike—it is still unclear how she would handle zombies. Negotiating skills will come in handy when looking to trade goods or bumping into another nomad group.
Cons: That. Hair. That thing is a hazard. And if we argue that by the end of the film she no longer has her long blond hair, that means she also doesn’t have her healing powers which doesn’t make her half as useful.
Pros: Mulan is a soldier. There is nothing else to say. This is the ultimate kick-ass Disney female character. She knows martial arts, how to handle cannons and she can think outside the box. The discipline she learned through her training combined with her ability to see things differently make her the best candidate for any apocalyptic scenario.
Cons: She is… clumsy? Look, there is nothing wrong with her. Mulan is perfect.
Pros: Merida is an Expert archer, horse rider and her mother is a bear. Talk about a triple threat! The Scottish princess has always separated herself from the crowd and by doing so, she has collected a couple of great skills needed during a zombie attack. She is sharp and capable, not to mention if all else fails, her bear mother will surely protect her.
Cons: Merida can be a little bit of a brat. Who are we kidding? Merida is a complete brat. She groans a lot when things don’t go her way and she lacks discipline. If you really tick her off she will go on a rampage and find a witch who will put a curse on you because… reasons. When you are on her good side, Merida is the best, but if mutiny occurs, Merida will be the one holding the knife that will stab you in the back.
Disney princesses may give off the appearance of being dainty and sweet, but no doubt if Walt Disney’s universe was suddenly invaded by zombies, they'd be able to handle their own. With Rapunzel’s frying pan, Mulan’s swordsmanship and Pocahontas' resourcefulness, you got yourself all the girl power you are going to need for the apocalypse.
