19 Disney Characters Who Look Far Different From Their Original Concept Designs

It’s no secret that character design is one of the key processes that have a strong impact on the future of any animation, so professional animators often come up with a variety of concept designs with different styles, expressions and poses for each of their characters before finally deciding which one suits their idea the most. Disney is, of course, no exception. Before creating the familiar princesses, heroes or even villains we all know and love, Disney artists also started their projects with tons of unused sketches you will hardly recognize today. These works did cost them plenty of time, but they were definitely not wasted at all. If it hadn’t been for their prudence, meticulousness and creativity, Disney works wouldn’t be that perfect and awe-inspiring for sure.

So, have you ever wondered what your favorite Disney characters originally look like when they were first portrayed? Well, Imgur user joinyouinthesun has something pretty interesting to share with you! Here’s a collection of 57 concept designs in Disney’s filmmaking history that you will find incredibly amusing, just scroll down and check them out!
