Artist Reimagines How Animated Disney Films Were “Actually Made”

Disney Fan Art by Andhika Muksin

Have you ever watched a movie with amazing special effects and wondered how it was made? Well, artist Andhika Muksin asked the same question for animated Disney films. As a long-time fan of classics like The Little Mermaid and Aladdin, he created a series of behind-the-scenes illustrations that show how these films would have been made if they were live-action.

“I have been an avid Disney fan since I was a kid,” Muksin tells My Modern Met. “In addition to that, I have always been into art and illustrations and I even had a stint as an artist in my late 20s before I settled on an office job. So I think it was around this time when I started to combine my interests into one: art and Disney. It became my personal way to bring that childhood magic into my adulthood, imagining all these characters dealing with real-life situations in a fun, comedic way.”

Muksin takes apart the most iconic scenes from the animated Disney films and draws them with relatable humor. For instance, instead of a real Prince Charming, Cinderella hugs a cardboard cutout. And the all powerful Genie from Aladdin turns out to be a human wearing blue makeup and yawning in front of a green screen. Even the lovely Princess Ariel is “revealed” to not be a mermaid, but actually a human girl hiding her feet from the camera.
