20 Side-By-Side Photos of Animated Characters and Their Live-Action Actors Who Look Exactly Like Them

What do we expect from an animated movie that gets adapted into a live-action film? It’s the casting. No one is curious about what happens next in the movie because we all know about the mainstream. So many people simply want to see a life-like version of the animated one to feel close to their favorite characters, or just see how they look in the real life.

Thankfully, casting directors never let us down when figuring out truly matched actors who look just like iconic animated characters. In fact, it’s easy to just plaster a big name in Hollywood on a film’s poster and draw the massive attention of viewers, but no, it’s more satisfying when actors have a suitable role rather than a household name who can guarantee a certain amount of ticket at the box-office. Amazingly, the actors below nailed their roles and that’s why we enjoyed these movies so much. Still, the most delightful thing to impress the audience is how the actors truly look like the original characters that it feels like they are almost real!

Below are 20 examples of actors beautifully matching the look of their equivalent animated characters. Scroll down and check them out!
