Here's What These Stars Would Look Like as Disney Villains
Image generators using artificial intelligence to create lifelike pictures have taken the world by storm in a shockingly short span of time. With nothing more than just a few user-inputted keywords, these machines can create basically any image you could think up—including celebrities we'd love to see star as Disney villains!
Today, we're taking a look at what could be if these global superstars ever got the opportunity to star as an iconic Disney villain done in the style of Pixar animation. Despite the fact that these celebs have never actually taken a turn as a Disney baddie, with the help of this new and exciting technology, we can imagine what their roles might be.
While some of these stars seem like a more obvious fit for villainous roles than others on the list, all these would-be villains will leave you shaking in your boots...and wishing you could see them on the big screen some day! Ever wondered what Lady Gaga would look like as an evil queen? We've got you covered! Tom Hanks as a murderous Woody? We've got that too! If you can dream it up, these AI image generators can make it a reality!
Let's get started!
There never was and probably never will be another superstar like Prince. Even though he died more than five years ago, we're pretty sure that people will be talking about and listening to him for years to come. While he never got the chance to star in a Disney film, we can imagine what his character might have looked like.
This photo just screams Prince...and supervillain! In some ways, he's giving us real Dr. Facilier vibes from The Princess and the Frog. We have no idea if there's a rabbit under that purple top hat, but if there is, it's probably evil too! Prince would have made the perfect malevolent magician in a Disney film.
It seems like there's no escaping Elon Musk these days. Whether you love him or hate him or couldn't care less about him, he's always in the news for something, good or bad. Could he cut it as a Disney villain? We have no idea about his acting chops, but he could definitely look the part!
It goes without saying that Musk would absolutely play some sort of evil genius supervillain, and it wouldn't take much to get him to look the part. What's this guy up to? Destroying the world? A major heist? With Musk, it might be all of the above!
Lady Gaga already sort of dresses like some fantastical Disney character, so it really wouldn't take much to make the pop queen look like an authentic Disney bad guy. She's also already done some work in movies, so it wouldn't be a complete stretch to see her in Disney's next big blockbuster!
I think it goes without saying that Lady Gaga would definitely play some sort of evil witch queen—this image almost looks like it could be straight out of Maleficent. Step aside, Angelina Jolie, there's a new bad witch in town! Whoever this hypothetical character may be, she's definitely going to put a spell on you.
If you're not a fan of Amazon, then Jeff Bezos is probably already a supervillain in your mind. Considering Bezos' mind-numbing wealth, he could probably buy Disney if he wanted to. But we think he'd be much better as the lead antagonist in one of their movies instead.
We don't know exactly which character he would play, but it would definitely be one that's hellbent on taking over the world. Nothing says evil genius like a bald guy, and Bezos clearly has that look down pat! Let's hope that Bezos' quest for world domination stays in the realm of fantasy!
Rihanna has already proven herself to be a superstar thanks to her wildly successful career as a musician and titan of the cosmetics industry. But there's one thing we're still itching for her to do: star in a Disney movie! She's had her music used in their films before, but she's never made an appearance herself.
While she would probably excel at any role they gave her, she would be the absolute perfect choice for an evil queen, and this image proves it. She's wicked, she looks great, and she knows it! We definitely wouldn't mind living in a world ruled by the evil Empress Rihanna!
In the real world, Oprah is a pretty beloved celebrity. She's had a long-running talk show, she runs her own TV network, and she's been an inspiration to viewers worldwide. But we want to see a different side of Oprah...her evil side! And we definitely think she has what it takes to be a memorable Disney baddie!
This AI-generated photo of Oprah gives us the perfect idea for a movie—an Incredibles reboot starring Edna Mode as the villain! How can you look at those glasses and not think of the iconic character from the original? Oprah would be the best pick if that were to ever happen!
Jack Nicholson is no stranger to playing villains, which would make him the perfect pick for Disney's newest bad guy. Whether he's terrifying his family in The Shining or terrorizing Gotham City as the Joker in Batman, Nicholson has a knack for playing despicable (but unforgettable) characters.
This image is nothing if not totally creepy, and we're almost glad it's not from a real movie because Nicholson looks like total nightmare fuel! He could be anything from a failed superhero to the deranged leader of a crime syndicate, but one thing is for certain—you'll want to steer clear of this questionable character!
Marlon Brando is one of the most famous actors the United States has ever seen thanks to his unforgettable and award-winning roles in movies like A Streetcar Named Desire, On the Waterfront, and Julius Caesar. While the iconic actor died in 2004, would he have wanted a role as a Disney villain?
If so, he would have absolutely looked the part! This image of Brando makes him look like some sort of deformed Mr. Incredible. Maybe an experiment gone wrong left the superhero with these injuries which turned him to the dark side. That sounds like a great movie premise to me!
For the people that can't stand her, Kim Kardashian is already a supervillain! She rose to fame on one of the most polarizing reality shows ever, and it always seems like she's caught up in some sort of drama. But if she could manage to pull it together for five minutes, she'd make a pretty convincing Disney villain!
Her motives may be evil, but, in true Kim K style, she looks great all the same. Her outfit in this AI-generated image is definitely giving us superhero movie vibes, so maybe she plays the villain while some brave soul tries to stop her from achieving world domination?
The last thing Joe Biden needs is a starring role in a Disney film, depending on who you ask! The current president probably has his hands filled with trying to run the country, but should he ever want to give it all up, he could make a pretty convincing supervillain.
This image of him looks like it could be from a Disney remake of Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. The idea that a company like Disney would remake a film like this is patently absurd, but, should they ever want to, they've got the perfect leading madman!
Leonardo DiCaprio has yet to do a Disney movie, but he almost ended up in one of their most popular films of the '90s. According to interviews, DiCaprio was offered "more money than I ever dreamed of" to star in the spooky comedy Hocus Pocus. Turning down that role was definitely a bad decision for the actor!
However, there's still hope that he could show up in a Disney movie some day. If so, he would make the perfect supervillain. In this image, he may look like an average guy, but it's clear that he's up to no good! Whatever sort of trouble is brewing, he's definitely the brains of the operation.
Disney manages to nab big-name actors for their roles all the time, but one big name they've yet to get is Brad Pitt. During his long career, Pitt has done a little bit of everything, from serious roles to horror to comedy. So, appearing as a Disney villain would definitely be within his wheelhouse.
Brad Pitt looks pretty normal in this image, which can only mean one thing—he's the kind of villain that you least suspect! Disney has gone this route before with charming and attractive villains like Hans in Frozen, so it wouldn't be a stretch for Pitt to play a role like this.
We know Angelina Jolie has played a wicked witch before, but wow! With an appearance like this, you know she'd have to play the Queen from Snow White. Eating an apple from a woman that looks like that will certainly put you into eternal sleep...if not worse.
Let's just say that you shouldn't eat fruit from strange women waiting in forests. That seems like a good basis, especially if they look super emaciated like Jolie in this image. Why doesn't she just eat the fruit? Something is obviously wrong with it! Wicked, wicked Queen — Stay away!
Tom Hanks is already Disney royalty thanks to his starring roles as Sheriff Woody from the Toy Story series. However, we'd love to see this beloved good guy turn to the dark side with a much more villainous role. It would be a stretch, but if anyone could do it, it would be Hanks.
Disney absolutely needs to do a horror-themed Toy Story movie where the toys are alive...and out for blood! And who better to play evil Woody than Hanks himself? He looks scarily authentic as a gaunt, ghostly cowboy in this image. You might want to consider a lock on your kid's toy box after seeing this terrifying pic!
This is one of our favorite villain photos, not gonna lie. Jlo looks absolutely terrifying. You know there's some kind of crazy backstory on why she lost her eye and what's going on with that black hole where her eyeball should be. That's why she's a villain. Think of a futuristic Disney movie plus evil Queen.
All she wanted was to remain beautiful for life, doing whatever it took to keep her skin smooth and plump. Then, a magic spell or experiment goes wrong, and now, there can't be another woman out there prettier than her. She makes sure she's the fairest of them all.
It's not like Beyonce needs to be a Disney villain The music superstar could go the rest of her life without doing anything else noteworthy and she'd still be a bigger star than most! That being said, we would love to see her in an evil role. While she did star as Nala in the Lion King remake, we want to see something a little more villainous from her!
This photo shows us what an evil queen Beyonce might look like! She looks fabulous in this image, but she also looks like she might toss a hex your way if you get on her bad side! Considering she's already done one Disney remake, she'd make the perfect queen for their upcoming Snow White remake!
Oh, Elvis. You weren't exactly a stellar guy, but a villain? Who would have guessed that you would have fallen this low? He looks like a perfect villain for a fun Pixar film, though. Honestly, he could just play himself. Elvis turns out to be cloning other huge stars like Buddy Holly to rule the world with their music.
Naturally, this image was taken after the heroes have foiled his plan. It's probably a bunch of kids that are still in high school, and he underestimated them (and their intelligence). It'll be hard to resist the glitz and the glamor, but Elvis will need to be taken down for the good of humanity.
Yeah, this is terrifying. Reese Witherspoon looks like something that crawled out of a Disney/Guillermo del Toro collaboration. This is an image that will haunt our dreams. Calling her a Disney villain doesn't even go far enough. It's honestly hard to place her into a movie, and we're guessing it'd be a new one.
What would happen if Disney started catering to adults instead of children? Yeah, this creation would be made. Reese would play the role perfectly, and it would be the top horror movie of the year. Honestly, we want Disney to do something like this because it would be amazing.
This Ariana Grande can fly. You know she can with hair like that. Obviously, her home is in the clouds, which pays homage to her perfume line. Then one of her powers would be to hypnotize people with those eyes that stare into your soul. It's enough to send a shiver down your spine.
Ariana Grande would be the scariest villain to come out of Disney since the early '80s (when Black Cauldron and Something Wicked This Way Comes were released). That doesn't even touch on the fact her singing would be like a spell that would draw you toward her so you couldn't get away!
Why does Nicole Kidman remind us of the kid that grew up to be a villain in the Incredibles? Incrediboy, Syndrome — whatever his name ended up being. Nicole Kidman almost looks like his mom. You know...the one that supported him on his quest to become a super-villain to get back at Mr. Incredible.
Actually, she looks like she'd egg him on. She'd probably join in on the villainous path and end up being the mastermind behind a lot of the plans to take out Mr. Incredible. It's the evil in her eyes and cheeks...something about it doesn't sit right with us.
King Charles III
It would honestly be difficult to think of a Disney movie where King Charles III would be scarier than real life. After all, we're talking about the guy that chose not to remain faithful to Princess Diana. Maybe that in and of itself is part of the villainy of the character. It's certainly evil if you ask us.
This image gives us the vibe of Hans from Frozen — you know, the one that tried to marry Princess Anna just to steal her wealth and power. Hans would do whatever it took to become King, and....well...Charles is now becoming King of England. Maybe there are some similarities.
As Madonna gets older and gets all the plastic surgery she can fit in her body, she's looking pretty villainous on her own. Somehow, she looks even more insidious when the AI gets a hold of her. She looks like Mother Gothel from Rapunzel. Remember Rapunzel, mother knows best. Mother will protect you. Nothing will go wrong, she swears!
Everything will be fine as long as Rapunzel lists to every word that comes out of her mouth (and keeps her young of course). Naturally, this also means that she can never ask to leave the tower ever again. It's as easy as one, two, three. After all, this used to be her playground.
Zendaya and Disney have a long history. The actress got her start starring in made-for-TV movies on the Disney channel and had a lead role on K.C. Undercover from 2015 until 2018. Now that she's all grown up, it's time for her to try her hand at something a little more villainous!
In this photo, Zendaya looks like she could be playing some sort of space commander gone rogue. Disney is no stranger to the interstellar genre with films like WALL-E, Treasure Planet, and Rocket Man, so this hypothetical film would fit right in with the others.
Looks can be deceiving, and that's the message Marilyn Monroe puts off. It's like the opposite of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. While she may look perfectly innocent, behind those perfectly propped-up curls is something dastardly — something that ends in the downfall of many heroes. You can see it, right?
If Monroe isn't the main villain, she's definitely a side-villain. She's the spy that brings the whole organization down and turns the heroes against each other. Maybe she would do better in a superhero movie like a Marvel film. A character like her would do really well in that type of setting.
Don't think Jennifer Aniston can play a villain? She was pretty great as Dr. Julia Harris in Horrible Bosses. She was one of the scariest bosses, actually. Because she was so good, she became the most recurring villain in the franchise. This goes to show playing a villain is definitely in her wheelhouse.
Give her the chance! She's the mom you thought you could trust. You're best friends with her son, but who would have guessed that she was the evil villainous all along?! Certainly not the heroes in the movie. It would be a twist of the century that no one would see!
Johnny Depp is best remembered for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. However, he isn't afraid to play a villain. Actually, this image reminds us of a vampiric-like character like the one he played in Dark Shadows. In fact, this image almost combines the two.
Wouldn't that be a fun concept? A vampire set in the same period as The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Then you have immortal pirate skeletons wandering around and vampires to worry about. It would really put humans in a dangerous situation. Good luck, Will Turner! You're gonna need it.
