These Realistic Portraits Of Disney Princes Are So Hot You'll Want To Be Part Of Their World

Totally dreamy.

The summer of Disney reimaginings continues, and this one is spectacular.

Before we had Disney princesses with fins, realistic hair, short hair or as iconic high school students, illustrator Jirka Vinse Jonatan Vaatainen created portraits of realistic Disney princesses, all the way back in 2011. Four years later, Vaatainen has released new realistic portraits -- this time of Disney princes.

"I have always been interested in character design, as well as the way people look and what makes them unique in their appearances," Vaatainen told MTV News. "I was inspired by the idea of recreating these characters that we all know and love, in a way I would imagine them to look like if they were 'more real,' while still staying somewhat true to the unrealistic quirks in their original character designs."

Vaatainen's images are so realistic, you'll think these are actual people. Or like some of us ... you'll wish these were actual people.

Take a look at all eight reimaginings below.
