Disney Princes With & Without Beards Proves The Awesomeness Of Beards

[View All on One Page]

Annie Erskine has decided to double-down on the greatness that was Adam Ellis’s Disney Princesses with Beards with…Disney Princes With & Without Beards! It’s not all princes though, there’s some sultans, kings, and gods in the mix as well. Take a look and decide if these Disney men are better with facial hair.

    I never had a good look at Prince Philip until now… I hadn’t realized he looked like Aurora.

    Without a “beard,” Scar becomes Scar-ette.

    Gaston looks like Bluto.

  • Janna

    Seriously! Prince Phillip with a beard looks like Aurora in drag.

  • Kalynn Osburn

    Wow…Aladdin gained bad-ass levels.

  • Janna

    I don’t always steal bread, but when I do, it involves an epic chase scene with my monkey sidekick.

  • Alex Marial

    Phillip with a beard looks like a girl with a beard? I think he’s the only one who didn’t benefit… or maybe it’s the style of the beard?

  • Anonymous

    I thought the exact same thing!

  • Cain S. Latrani

    Oh, you meant THOSE kinds of beard.

    I thought you meant… you know… yeah.

    Wait, is that Argus Filch in charge of Atlantis?

  • Sam Groves

    I guess this just shows the power of a beard, all but one of the pictures where the character lost their beard – the beardless version looked like a dufus.

    Of course, even the power of a beard can’t save everyone. Case in point – Prince Philip.

    A Van Dyke would have looked better.

  • Lara

    My husband says, about Phillip, “It looks like they took a girl’s wig and stuck it on his face.”

  • Lien

    *looks at Philip* So… about those dwarf ladies?

  • MeatyStakes

    I dunno, had it been a shorter beard he could have pulled off a Fandral

  • Sanjay Merchant

    Yeah, he’s definitely giving off more of a drag king vibe than anything else.

  • Sanjay Merchant

    No one rocks a beard like Gaston!

  • Ashe

    Or Zira.

  • Gregory Williams

    I was wondering about the sex change/transgender aspects suggested by that one.

  • Gregory Williams

    He became a made to order manly man and now he needs a leather jacket, a Harley and a couple of DUIs to get any woman he wants.

  • Mo Gotti

    Thank you, The Notebook! Now all us average-looking guys can hide behind beards, and women think we’re sexy :-D

  • Eve

    I thought Aurora pulled it off way better than him.

  • Eve

    He would have looked better rocking an Errol Flynn beard.

  • Ashley James

    Always though Disney was evil. All the heart breaking moments in childhood came from disney. Like these:

  • Annie Erskine

    Hey thanks for posting this guys :D I love The Mary Sue!

  • Annie Erskine

    I just wanted to give him a weird beard. There are never enough weird beards out there. Nobody posted the Naveen picture I did though:

  • Jill Pantozzi

    Oooh I missed that one!

  • Jill Pantozzi

    You’re welcome! :)

  • Camille Monae

    Now Disney can give men unrealistic beard expectations

  • LifeLessons

    Wow. Huh. They do look sexier with beards!

    Merlin looks like he should be wearing a lab coat and going, “Great Scott!” He’s already got the time travel down, after all.

    (“No, no! You turn out fine, Arthur! But it’s your kid! SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE ABOUT YOUR KID!”)

  • dnlhl

    Should’ve also added a beard to Simba in the one with Scar.

  • Elizabeth Wells

    I want that fic now
