Animated Disney Characters Who Were Based on Real Actors



Aladdin/Tom Cruise
"Aladdin" (1992) was originally drawn to resemble Michael J. Fox but producers felt he looked too boyish and added the rakish features of Tom Cruise.





Ariel/Alyssa Milano
While actress Sherri Stoner was the live action model for Ariel from "The Little Mermaid" (1989) the animators were also inspired by then 16-year-old Alyssa Milano.



Ursula/Divine
Flamboyant drag performer Divine inspired the look of Ursula the Sea-Witch for "The Little Mermaid" (1989).



Pocahontas/Irene Bedard
The beautiful Native American actress and singer was both the vocal and visual inspiration for Pocahontas (1995).



Snow White/Margaret Champion
In addition to modeling the lead in "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves," Champion also worked on "Pinocchio" (1940) and "Fantasia" (1940).
