Back in August 2014, I posted about a series of artwork by Robby Cook that presented various Disney characters, like Snow White, Belle, Ariel, and more as characters from the Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra TV series.
Today, I bring you a few new pieces and a few that I missed way back when.
What’s unique about these pictures is that each Disney character is matched up with an element or corresponding character in the Avatar universe that might best suit their personality or personal story.
Cook made Cinderella into an earthbender who created her own “glass slippers” out of crystals found in the Crystal Catacombs of Old Ba Sing Se. Talk about being self-sufficient:
Yzma, the main villain from The Emperor’s New Groove, has been placed on the throne of the Earth Kingdom. Her tyrannical personality matches up almost perfectly with that of the now-deceased Earth Queen from The Legend of Korra:
The Evil Queen from Snow White was transformed into a waterbending master to correspond with former Republic City councilmen, Tarrlok. In Book 1: Air of The Legend of Korra, Korra faced off against Tarrlok in his office when he used the flowing waterfall behind his desk to attack the Avatar by launching shards of ice in her direction. Tarrlok wanted the Avatar out of the way, in much the same way that the Evil Queen wanted Snow White gone for good:
Anna, the spunky princess from Frozen, was made into a talented firebender. Firebenders are known for their passion and drive and, if you’ve ever seen Frozen, you know that Anna is full of both:
Kristoff, Anna’s boyfriend, was made into an earthbender. While it might seem more appropriate to have made him into a waterbender, because of his unusual love of ice, it’s easy to see that Kristoff’s personality is similar to that of earthbender Bolin from The Legend of Korra. Suddenly, it all makes sense:
We’d previously seen Pocahontas as an airbendering master, complete with her arrow tattoos. Now, we get to see her in action, twirling her staff, bending the air, and presumably, painting with the colours of the wind:
