Last month, BuzzFeed did some research on the Disney princesses. Using contextual clues littered throughout the movies they starred in, BuzzFeed determined roughly what time period each princess lived in and used models to show what the princesses might have looked like if they lived in the real world rather than in animated films. BuzzFeed Motion Pictures made a short, annotated film highlighting some of the major differences.

It’s interesting to note that Pocahontas would have probably been heavily tattooed and topless, while Princess Jasmine’s clothing would have been a lot more modest. Check out the video below, and check out this BuzzFeed post to learn more about the project:
