How Will These Disney Princes Look When They’re Older?
When Disney cartoons say happily ever after, they truly mean it. Disney princesses will be with their princes for a long time, which means wrinkles and graying, or perhaps balding. In an amusing series, Loryn Brantz of Buzzfeed imagined how several Disney princes would look in their old age.
The series features Eric from Little Mermaid, Shang from Mulan, Naveen from The Princess and the Frog, Flynn Rider from Tangled, Aladdin and others. Brantz also adds some humorous “fun facts” detailing the lives thus far of the princes and princesses. Some of the princes wind up with gray hair and some with white, but all of them turn out to be silver foxes.
See what Eric, Shang, Naveen, Flynn Rider, and Aladdin look like in their old age and go to Buzzfeed to see the rest!
“Fun Fact: Eric continues to live happily ever after in the same castle with Ariel. They have three kids, and two of them are avid swimmers. As king, he has implemented many bans on fishing in the surrounding water and has spearheaded a large clean-water initiative in his kingdom.”
“Fun Fact: Both Shang and Mulan are still active in the army. They have two kids and enjoy traveling the world with them for their work. Mushu acts as the children’s nanny and, more importantly, guardian spirit.”
“Fun Fact: King Naveen and Queen Tiana are still very much in love and enjoy going on dates to the local ponds and reminiscing about how they met. Together, they spearheaded a nature conservatory with a special space for endangered amphibians.”
“Fun Fact: Flynn is not a king now, but he feels like a king living his life with his partner, Rapunzel. They opened and currently run an orphanage for children with special magical needs.”
“Fun Fact: As Sultan, Aladdin has helped fix the disparity in his kingdom by focusing on charitable efforts and public programs. He and Jasmine regularly leave the palace for long walks and enjoy taking the carpet for rides around the world every anniversary.”
